If you know anything about me you know that pink is hands down my favorite color. So, of course when my little sis decided we should chalk our hair I opted for hot pink. It was a fun project so I wanted to bring it to all of you. First think you need are gloves, soft pastel chalk (we used Fiber-Castell), a spray bottel with water, and hair. After choosing the section of hair you want to color wet it with the spray bottle, then wet the pastel.
I chose a portion of my bangs. You just rub the chalk along your wet hair until the color sticks. Then you allow the chalk to air dry, I straightened my hair then curled it back afterwards (my hair was natural). Simple as that…
We also got my Mom in on the action, that’s her on the far left. My Dad wasn’t having any of it so we weren’t unable to give him a blue streak.
I am such a sucker for an amazing hair style and as a natural girl myself I always love when women go natural for formal events. The first step to a breathtaking natural look is a good cut. Curly hair falls very differently than straight hair thus needs a special kind of trim. Next, moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. As I mentioned in a post some time back I use mayonnaise or eggs as a pretreatment. Then I rinse them out then use Argon oil and a leave in cholesterol. Also, ladies don’t wash your hair every day, the biggest enemy of natural hair is breakage. Wash about 2-3 times a week at the most. I hope these little tips are helpful.
How much do I love Thanie Newton’s updo? Oh let me count the ways…1) it reminds me of a long gone period of elegance. 2) is is oh so Janelle Monae. 3) I think it’s actually something I can do with my hair. Thanx Black Girl with Long Hair for the pic.
