Happy Thanksgiving America! It’s another national holiday to think and be thankful. It is also a time to sit at the dinner table with loved ones eating all kinds of turkey recipes.
You can make this Thanksgiving even more fun with your hair. How? You may ask. Have you heard about the HAIR CHALK? Yes. Hair Chalk – like the chalk you use to write on the black board that you see at coffee shops or on the sidewalk, floor at home or school.
The hair chalk comes in various shapes and colors. There are various brands too. There is Senellier brand pastels and Scuncii hair chalk, among others. In fact, some people have used the sidewalk chalk to achieve the same goal. As much as it is trendy, there are various reviews on dos and don’ts of hair chalking. The Beauty Department, an online entertainment site featuring beauty tips advised that you do not wet your hair before chalking if you are blonde or have blonde tips.
Some other reviews encourage chalking dry hair and not wet one, except the chalk is not as visible as you want. “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.” (Department)
Can you chalk braids or weave? As seen in the picture, you can color your weaves with hair chalk. Hair chalking is not just for blondes or Caucasian; African-American can make their braids or weaves colorful temporarily with the application.
If you are wearing braids, apply it to the tips of the braids. Do the same for your weaves. You can style your hair as you like and you will be having creativity hair style plus great dinner this thanksgiving.
