What is the best hair chalk color for dark brown/black hair?

We have got many feedback from our fans who said that the hair chalk color is not working for their dark hairs, some of them have black hair and some have brown hair. So here in this post we will share the experience with hair chalking for dark hairs.

so we already know that almost every colors works great on blonde hair. The questions, what are the best colors for dark hairs like Asian hair (almost black) or brown hair?  Or the question is “Does hair chalk even work for dark hair?”

the answer is YES!

While we are trying to explain the fact the hair chalk is not just for blonde hai but we did get many pictures from our fans showing that the colors do not show on their dark hairs. WHY?

The reason for this is that you have to pick the best colors for your dark hair. As proved, the best colors for dark brown hair are blue, pink and purple. The best colors for black hair is red, purple and pink, white (if yo dare!)

And as we know, there are two kinds of hair chalks: Pastel chalk and makeup pack.

We tested both of these two kinds of hair chalks, and it turned out the makeup pack hair chalk worked better on dark hair then the stick pastel ones.

We tried to find out why and the reason is the ingredients of hair chalks(although we do not know what exact in each ingredient make the difference), but the makeup pack hair chalks are more soft and the color   adhesiveness is way better than the pastel chalks.   I know many girls tried to chalk their hair with pastel chalk and followed the instruction to wet their hair or chalk first before applying. But for the round makeup hair chalk, you do not need to do this and the colors are showing great too.

Here’s some pictures of the dark hair with hair chalks we collected:

How to Chalk dark/brown hairs with hair color chalk?

Many people asked my this question:”I have very dark hairs, can I still chalk my hair with your hair color chalk?” Although I had answered this question for a long time, here I am still answering it for you! YES!  You can chalk your dark hair!

Chalk Dark Hair

As many people just saw blond with hair chalking, so they are just assuming only blond hair can be chalked! This is so not true.  Although if you have got blond hair, the chalking will be a little easier than dark hairs, because the blond hair can be easily colored with any hair chalk colors, for example, green, pink, blue, red, lime, light pink, light blue, etc. But that’s all!  With dark hairs, you can also do this. The only difference is you need to select only the bright colors of chalk for your hair. Because some of the colors will not work very well on dark hairs. For example, green, yellow, lime …,  but pink, blue, purple are perfect colors for dark hair.  They will bring you exact high lights as same as blond hairs.

Another issue with chalking dark hair is that, they might not be that easy as chalking bond hairs.  For example, for some blond hair chalking, you can just easily rub the soft pastel chalks to the hair, and the colors will be there. But for dark, brown hairs, you might need to wet your hair first before do chalking, or the pastel chalks will not be easily added(rubbed) onto hair. You know in this procedure, the water will make the colors of chalk stain hair much easier.

See? Pretty easy, hah?   So if you have dark hair including black, red or brown, you should not get frustrated with hair chalking at all. Instead you can easily catch up with latest hair color trend just the same as blond girls!

At the end of this post, I will recommend several colors for chaking dark hair:

purple hair color chalk for dark hair

Purple hair color chalk is an good option for dark hairs.

Blue hair color chalk for dark hair

Pink Hair color chalk for hairPink Hair color chalk for hair

Basically, these three colors are my personal recommendation for dark hairs. If you have better ideas or have suggestion on dark hair color chaking, please leave a comment on the post or send us a message right now!

While there are some guys who also love this trend but  they are just afraid this item will damage their hair. Since i have used this new hair dye product for few months, i would like to share experience with you.

Actually this hair color chalk will stain your hair if not proper used. This pastel chalk is fun and very good for a temporary hair color, but remember that they are NOT professional hair color dye product so don’t use it too often. And you’d better use some water spray and some hair moisturizing products. Coz some guys may found their hair become quite dry after chalking it. In this case you should pay more attention to care your hair before and after chalking.

2012 Trendy Hair Coloring Products Comparison -Hair Color Chalk(03)

In the last blog posts we have talked about two kinds of temporary hair coloring products – hair color rub and color bug. Today in this post, i would like to share some experience when using hair color chalks. Among all the trendy temporary hair dye items, this one might be the most cost effective and super easy to apply!

Hair color chalk cost less and really easy to use compared with other two temporary hair dye products. You can order one pack soft pastel chalk with only a little more than 10 bucks. You got 12 different colors which allow you change your hair color with your mood. This kind of hair chalk really needs small volume every time. So i guess if you order one 12 color set or 24 color set hair chalk, there is no need to buy another pack the whole year. It is really a good purchase!

The reason why i highly recommend this product is not because it is very affordable but also because it is super easy to dye hair at home. Even you never know this fad item, you can learn how to apply it by only a few pictures. Anyway, this is not a professional hair color dye product. You can use it to have a fresh look for parties, night out or necessary. But do not use it too often. That will be no good to your hair.  Here is some tips and suggestion you should pay attention when chalk dye your hair:

temporary hair dye-chalk your hair in teal blue

—–use the hair color chalk on the outside hair, not inner hair, or the colorful power may stick here and there on your clothes.

—–never use this in rainy days if you don’t want to be a colorful dog.

—-dark hair need more volume to make it looks bright and showy.

—-don’t wear your best clothes and wear darker colored skirt or shirts if possible.

—-let a flat iron or hair curler help seal the color onto your hair. So they won’t drop much.

Hair Color Chalk, the new trend to color your hair!

Last week, we were shooting Lauren’s collection for Kohl’s and at the end of the day, we got our hands on some colorful soft chalks. How can a girl resist when there are pinks + purples involved?? Lauren’s pink cotton candy bun was pretty cute! As you may know, hair chalking has been around for a little while now and it’s a great way to temporarily add color to your locks. Above you see that chalk can create a very similar look to dye without commitment. But… with every action comes a reaction. There are several things you need to know about chalking your hair. Below are some tips + tricks along with some very important advice for before and after…

  • Twist the hair as you chalk. The texture from twisting makes the chalk release more pigment.
  • Always brush the excess powder out after chalking each piece.
  • If you’re blonde or you have blonde tips, DO NOT wet your hair before chalking. I will stain if you do because adding water to pure pigment creates a real dye. If you’re okay with the staining for several washes then go for it! If you’re looking to do color for the day, do not add water at any time.
  • If your hair color is anything darker than blonde and you don’t have blonde tips, you’ll NEED the water. Doubling the pigment is what will help the colors to show up on darker hair. Mist a little water on the strand with a spray bottle, then chalk it up! It won’t stain darker hair the same way it will on lighter hair.
  • Red heads– try it without water and if it’s just not showing up, add a little water. It just depends on how light or dark your red is.
  • Use only “soft pastels”. THESE are our all time faves. Senellier brand pastels have the brightest and most intense pay off we’ve ever seen… and we’ve tried a lot. They’re nearly $4 per piece at Blick, which seems a little expensive, but so is hair color– and hair color removal. Regular chalk doesn’t work the same. It’s harder to transfer and getting it to stick to your hair can be virtually impossible.
  • Soft chalk pastels can be found at any major art store. Just don’t get “soft chalk” pastels confused for oil pastels. If you’re confused, ask a sales person. Removing oil pastels would be a nightmare, not to mention, they’d feel very sticky.

  • Try doing 2 colors on one strand! Really fun and looks tie-dyed!
  • Always wear a robe or cape and lay something down on the floor to catch the chalk dust that falls off. This stuff gets EVERYWHERE!
  • It will get on your clothes during the day, so try and wear something close to the color you’re sporting.
  • Doing updos with chalked hair is ideal because you won’t get as much on your outfit.
  • Before you shower, brush with a soft, natural hair brush get out as much pigment as you possibly can! It should come off almost all the way with brushing.
  • Don’t chalk your hair too often. At the end of the day, you’re using powder pigment on the ends of your hair and that can suck up a lot of natural moisture that you need in the ends of your hair.
  • Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo after chalking. Soft chalk pastels use “gum arabic” as a binder. It’s a very very small amount and totally natural, but it’s made from a tree sap so it’s really important to get it all out.
  • Conditioning treatment is a MUST after you wash out your chalk. Replenish the moisture that may get sucked out with chalking.

The best part about chalking is styling it.
