This Isn’t a Fashion Blog for a Reason

Posted on: January 22, 2013

I’ve never been accused of being fashion forward. Though, in my own defense, I did buy a chambray shirt back at the beginning of the fall before it became all “cool”. Granted, I never called it a chambray {and still don’t}, and I bought it purely because I like it and not because I had somehow gotten word of it’s impending coolness. But whatevs.

Anyways, I’ve heard about hair chalking for a while. The idea is intriguing; putting chalk in you hair {mainly at the ends} to give it a pop of color. I’ve gone back and forth on trying it and finally decided yesterday to drop the $12 and give it a whirl.

I gave the Pop Pink a try. The directions say to apply to dry hair. I tried that, but frankly had little success. It just made my ends look really dull, not pink. I decided to try it with wet hair. This time the chalk went on smoother, seemed brighter, but once the dust settled, still proved to be more dull than bright.

As the morning has gone on, my house is being covered in a layer of pop pink dust, my hands look as though I played in pink sidewalk chalk, and my hair looks dull. The chalk isn’t holding to my hair like I wanted at all. Kinda a bust {which, while a synonym for pop, is not quite the bust/pop I was going for}.

I considered taking back the chalk, but seeing that my two attempts at chalking used up more than I expected, I’ll have to eat the cost and keep the chalk for Julia and Hannah to use for special dress up days.

Ah, c’est la vie. I’m glad I tried it. I guess if I’m actually wanting to go for colored tips, I’m better off dying them.

I’d love to hear any fun fashionable things y’all have tried lately.

I plan to dye my tips this year. I’ve wanted orange in my hair since I was sixteen and seeing as how I’m turning thirty this year, I think it’s darn time.

I say, go for it! I’ll be super funky and cool. Be sure to send me pictures once it’s done. πŸ™‚

LOL. I love you, Sarah!!! πŸ˜€

Thank you, ma’am! Love you too! πŸ™‚

You can also use crayola marker. Its messy to go on, but washes out in the shower.

Hmmm… I’ve not heard of that before. I might have to test it out.

I tried this product in the Colorbug brand. When I tried it, it left powder and got a lot of dust on my clothing. I found that a better solution can be buying hair chalk. You can buy the colors in bulk, mix them and they wash out. Something to try!

Thanks for the advice! I’ll have to look into the actual chalk.

If It makes you feel any better….I had to google chambray shirt to find out what it is and I didn’t know there was such a thing as coloring the ends of your hair with chalk. I think you’ve got more of a 411 on fashion than I do! I remember the days when people just used good old fashioned cool aid.

Hahaha! That’s why I love you Carrie, because we’re the same kinda cool.

You can use chalk pastels (like from a craft store) to get a more vibrant color, but you’ve still got the dust issue. :-/

I always called them jean shirts – Chambray what? πŸ™‚ I’ve wondered about the chalk hair stuff, I really wanted to try it! Such a bummer it didn’t stick to your hair well. But hey, at least your girls will enjoy using them. For the record, I think you’re plenty fashion forward πŸ™‚
