more lasting coloring result. But even adults want to have some fun with color in their hair at times. It does not only have to be on Halloween, a streak of a contrasting hue in any hair color looks interesting and
creative at any party or just because.
For those just looking to cover up some roots before their next visit to the salon or to camouflage some grey hair, most of these products offer shades in natural tones as well that will match their own hair color.
One of the latest fine ideas and line of innovative products. Just moisten individual strands with water, then rub the chalk on your hair for the pigment to transfer. The application has to be set with a curling or flat
iron, then misted with hairspray. It comes out easily when washing the hair with shampoo.
The temporary hair color chalk works even on darker hair and leaves behind an intense, opaque coat. The chalk is easy to use and inexpensive, depending on which specific product you choose. The process works fine with pastel art chalk from
the craft store, but there are new products on the market that are tailored especially for hair. Some even have a conditioner built in, which is advisable since the chalk has the tendency to dry out the hair.
Hair Chalk usually comes in packages with many different colors that can be blended. The possibilities are endless!
Temporary Hair Color in a Spray
Push a button and let the pigmented mist begin your metamorphosis. Colored hair sprays are super easy to use and most of all they work fast. All you need is clean and dried hair. If the hair is moist, the spray color
might become blotchy. If you have darker hair and want to add bright colors of lighter shades to it, it is best to first apply a coat of white spray on color to form a base. Think of it as a primer. Just spray a thin coat
of it and then apply another thin coat of the color of your dreams and done … Always follow the instructions on the product itself.
Spray color can be used on individual strands, on wider sections and in layers. It also does well to color the entire hair, especially when it is a short cut.
If too much color is not your thing, but you still want to do something to your hair that gives it a fun and glamorous touch, try the spray on glitter. In seconds you turn from pretty but bland into a sparkly beauty.
Brush on Hair Color
As easy as putting on mascara. Small amounts of color are transferred to the hair using a brush which is very similar to a mascara brush. This is a great way to quickly add highlights and color effects into your dry hair.
The advantage is that the application can be in a very defined, targeted area because of the small brush that is used. At the same time this makes it difficult to work on larger sections. Some people use a combination of a
spray color and the brush on products for details. This method is one of the preferred ways to cover up roots and strands of grey hair.
Gels give you both, good hold and color. Most products work well on darker hair, but results are the brightest when used on blonde or light brown shades. Usually there is not much bleeding of the color when using a colored
hair gel, but the downside is that it always will have the starched and wet effect. So if you are looking for color effects in free flowing hair, you may want to take a second look at the brush on color or the hair chalk.
