I do not know how Gdragon’s hair survives his daily dyes (how is he not bald yet?) but I do envy that it is a part of his job to chop and change his look!
When it comes to hair colour, I err on the side of classic most of the time! I know I’ll miss my naturally dark hair once I bleach it. It’s always the way of the hair Gods! I do like crazy every now and again but I’d rather have it as a temporary look. So what’s the alternative?
How about hair chalk?
No I’d never heard of this before but apparently it’s the new thing! I found a packet in the giant Topshop on Oxford Street. I’ve always wanted to dye/highlight my hair pink but I just can’t make a serious commitment to bleaching my hair! When I saw this packet of green and pink hair chalk by HAIR ARTIST – I knew I had to try it! It was only £7.50!
The verdict on Hair Artist chalk
1. It’s quite fiddly to use because chalk is so crumbly! You have the plastic wrapping around it and once you take off that plastic, the chalk will really crumble. So here’s a tip – don’t fully remove the plastic until you need to!
2. Because it is so crumbly! It gets everywhere, so do watch your clothes. I had pink powder dotted about my carpet but it’s fine, it’s chalk – you can just wipe it away.
3. It’s also quite drying to the hands! But I guess if you keep the plastic on the chalk, this should solve the problem.
4. The packet says it really works on light hair! I’m brunette so obviously I don’t fall in that catergory. It does take a lot of application for the colour to show but you know what? I really like that the colour was subtle and blended in really nicely! Having pink hair almost looked natural! (see my swatch in the picture). Sadly the powder didn’t really last me the day!
But then again I didn’t follow the instructions fully – for dark hair, they say to wet the hair first so that the colour takes to it better. I’ve not tried this method yet but I’ll report back with my findings.
5. For easier application – twist your hair into a strand and then apply the colour!
You actually don’t need to buy a special hair chalk for your hair. ANY CHALK is fine! So start raiding your local art store and GET YOUR CHALK ON!
