The Body Shop Hair Chalks

They are the latest hair phenomenon of the year and the first time I'm trying it out which is uber exciting! Now I'm not the bravest of all when it comes to experimenting with hair colours which are permanent but when it comes to temporary wash-out options, I'm all ears. Especially if it's pink and I am planning to rock an ombre with it. Coloured highlights never tempted me and nor did full hair colour. Ombre however, I feel will simply never go out of fashion, like skinny jeans and Starbucks you see? 

The Body Shop do really simple hair chalks in two primary shades and clam they'll work on all hair types. These are simply coloured powder for the hair and I've heard you can replicate similar results with a spare eye shadow but I personally would opt for hair chalk if I were you. After being super sceptical on how the colour would translate onto my black tresses, it was quite relieving to know that it actually worked pretty well. 

Of course you'd have to keep in mind that the ends of my hair were previously ombred to a golden brown colour hence the end result was more of a pastel, dusky sunset pink on me, which I absolutely loved. On pitch black hair that hasn't been coloured however, it came out to be more of a lavender-ish pink, which still looked pretty cute. 

Overall the hair chalks are pigmented and would need to be sealed with a hairspray if you want them last overnight and not stain your bed sheets or clothing. It's a bit of a mess to apply so wear disposable gloves if possible and prevent brushing your hair too much after application, do all that jazz beforehand. If you've always wanted to try a pastel pink ombre after lusting at uncountable tumblr, pinterest and instragram pictures, then this is the perfect way to indulge in the trend minus the commitment.
