We have got many fans’ feedback about the question” I saw many merchants taking two different hair chalks, some are packed with box set and chalks are stick ones, and some are packed with round plastic container( looks like the eyeshadow), so what’s the difference between these two chalks?” or What kind of chalk should I buy?
At first, when the hair chalk was “officially” became a product, there was only boxed pack hair chalks like this:
The first product of hair chalk is made by pastel chalk which is not designed for “hair dying” at all, it was for drawing pictures(that’s what chalks do, right?), and some beauty guru found it is also good for hair coloring, so they brought this trend to the public. Very soon, it became very popular. And some merchants developed new ingredients and made new chalk sticks which were specially good for hair coloring. These new chalks were made by softer materials and had better coloring attribute. People always can not tell which is the chalk for drawing pictures which are professional hair chalks, because they look exact the same, except the package will tell which is hair chalk.
These hair chalks are fund and easy enough to use.(it’s never been difficult, to be honest!). But then some big players in the market, like some cosmetic factories found a better way to pack the hair chalk powder. They use the eye shadow container to pack hair chalk powder. This is a big progress because the hair chalk product became more easy to carry and storage. Usually when we use the pastel sticks, it was almost one-time thing, because we do not know how to stock the rest of one stick. But with these new packs of hair chalks, we do not have such problem. We just close the cover and chalk will be safe.
So in fact, the boxed hair chalk and makeup pack hair chalks are the same kind of product but only with different packs. But here I still want to answer some of the most concerned questions.
1. Is the two chalks the same? For ingredients?
Answer: basically the same. But some brands of makeup pack hair chalks are much softer to use so I think they added some more materials to it.
2. Which kind of hair chalks are better for me?
Answer: It all depends on you. If you like the wild experience of DIY hair chalk at home, you should buy boxed hair chalks. If you want to carry them easily, you should my makeup pack.
3. Which kind of hair chalk better for brown/black hair?
Answer: The makeup pack. It is tested and the makeup pack hair chalk works better on dark hairs. The colors will be rubbed on easier than pastel chalks.
4. Why the makeup pack hair chalk more expensive?
Answer: yes, I noticed that too. I guess the reason is that they use better packages and they are mostly from big manufacturers or brands, so the price are higher.
