I love color in my hair (planning on putting something more permanent in soon!) but hair chalking kits are starting to pop up here & there in all price ranges, shades, & setups so it is hard to choose just one! The Scunci Hair Chalk kit comes with 2 shades & an applicator that resembles a small hair straightener. With the phrase “Easy to use!” & ringing in under $10, you have to be curious to try it out right? Keep reading to find out what I think, how it looks, & enter for your chance to win one!
These packs come in two shade options: Pink/Green & Purple/Coral. I’ll be keeping my eye out for the other duo but I have the Pink/Green option today. If you’ve never used hair chalk before, it is actually pretty easy & I found this method quite a bit less messy with this first application using the Scuni tool. To change colors all you have to do is slide the chalk out of the holder & slide the other shade in. I am a bit worried what will happen when I use the chalk down to a nub or if I crack it though. When/if that happens I’ll just place it between my palms & use it the way I normally use brick hair chalk I suppose!
Some things to remember about hair chalking:
– It will be messy but it will also wash off!
– Dampening hair will make the color significantly more intense.
– You can layer more chalk on if you want more vibrancy.
– I’ve found a touch of hairspray definitely helps color stay in.
This black hair straightener-esque tool kind of works like pinchers grasping onto hair while you apply pressure. You can apply color pretty much however you want root to tips, streaks, just tips, ombre, etc. I went with bigger streaks so you can really see the color. There was a bit of tugging in some areas but that’s just the learning curve. I eventually found the right angle & twist motion.
Overall I didn’t find this difficult to use but I’ve also worked with hair color before. The pigmentation isn’t out of this world but it is buildable so I like it. I really liked both of these shades on me as well & I think they held up the same as other, more expensive hair chalking kits. This has me really looking out for the purple/coral type set since I think those shades would be really pretty together! I think this is really fun, especially for summer hair fun! I also think this would be easier to use on children since you have a bit more control. Who doesn’t want a bit more control when doing children’s hair?
