I like to try new things as long as free falling, rock climbing, or bungee jumping is involved. Trying new food, new looks, new anything else, that I can deal with. One thing I have changed a few times, but nothing drastic, has been my hair. I have had vanilla and cherry highlights, auburn hair, and even black hair. I am not too adventurous as in I will never go blonde. After all, brunettes have all the fun, right? And to help with my mood changes I decided to try hair chalk.
Scünci contacted me and asked if I wanted to give their hair chalk a try, and of course I just had to try it…specially because I was wondering if it would ever work on me (more on that later).
I received a dual pack of pink and turquoise chalk…although the turquoise had more of a green shade than an equal green and blue. Not complaining. I like green, blue, and even turquoise. That said, and confession time, I would never die my hair green (or turquoise for that matter).
The pink chalk was snugged into the applier which caused them to break a bit but where still usable. So, since I was not going to paint my hair green we decided to let A. give it a try!! That is him behind the hair chalk…so excited to try it out!!
Daddy tried to give him a mohawk which fell flat soon after he was done styling it!
The application is easy but will still need some hair tugging. And in my mom’s wise words: “Beauty hurts!” (specially if your mom is pulling your hair as she tries to untangle it).
A. did not seem to care at all…I mean, how often does he get to actually paint his hair?! Let’s just say that this one was a first! But I will surely let him do it more often.
Of course I had to try it out as well. After all, pink is my favorite color. A. tried to apply it but it didn’t really work for him because he was not putting enough muscle. So I tried it for myself.
Not matter how hard I tried the chalk did not seem to stick to my hair. It might have to do with the monoi oil I had applied on my hair the night before.
After much tugging and fighting with my hair and the chalk this was all I managed to apply on my hair. Of course, lets note that I have very dark brown hair which wouldn’t allow the color to be seen from a distance.
Also, I tend to play with my hair so the chalk came off right away.
I think hair chalk looks better on light colores hair. I have seen countless photos of girls with chalk on their hair and it looks beautiful.
The Scünci Hair Chalk might not have worked for me but my son was so happy that he had to go outside and show off his new locks!
Since his hair is lighter than mine (I think you can call it dirty blond) you can actually see the hair chalk. And taking it off is as easy as taking a shower…or bath and his case!
We are definitely using Scünci Hair Chalk for my boys: to goof around, to be silly, to do plays, to go to parties, and, specially and most definitely, for Halloween!!
