If you’re blonde or have blonde tips, make sure to not wet your hair before chalking. Adding water to the pigment creates a real dye, it will still only last a few washes but if you’re only looking for a one-day color, steer clear of the water.

If your hair color is anything darker than blonde, you will need the water to ensure that the chalk shows up. Mist a little water on your strands with a spray bottle, then chalk it up! If you have red hair, try it without water first to see how it takes. If it’s not showing up, add a little water.

Twisting the hair as you chalk will create a texture that makes the chalk release more pigment.

As you’re chalking, brush the excess powder out after chalking each piece.

Make sure to wear a robe or cape and lay a tarp or towel on the ground to catch the chalk dust. It can get a bit messy.

When you’re ready to shower away your chalk color, brush your hair with a soft natural hair brush to get as much out as possible before even getting in the shower. Once you’re in the shower, make sure to shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo to help get out all of the chalk and make sure your hair remains soft and manageable afterward. Also, try a conditioning treatment after washing out chalk to replenish any lost moisture.

Make an appointment with Athena Salon and Spa in Windsor today to discuss a chalking treatment. Speak with a member of their beauty team to decide if hair chalk is the right thing for you as well as what other types of salon services they may be able to help you with.
