Fun with chalk

59/365: Feb 28 - Fun with chalk pastels

28 chalk 02

I had a little good, clean (messy) fun today.

It started on Twitter, as all good things do, when Stacey said this:

And, well, I didn’t know it existed either, and I just couldn’t have that, so off to Google I went.

I found this article, which explained the process, and since I was just about to hop in the shower anyway, I decided to try it. It’s quite simple, if you are not too fussy about it. I just rubbed the chalk over a few strands of wet hair, and that was that.

Remember when I dyed my hair green? It didn’t take me long to regret that move. It’s nice to use chalk. It doesn’t take long to do, and it washes right out. Zero commitment.

It’s possible I may be too old for this, but think I may try some other colors anyway. If I can wear pigtails at 41, then I can put colorful streaks in my hair, too. Pfth.

  1. You are never too old to have fun with you hair! r

  2. Ooooh! I can horrify my child by adding stripes to my hair! Well stripes apart from the silver and white that pop in occasionally…

  3. You know…that reddish pink really suits you! I like it, but more importantly I hope you had fun with it.
