Have you seen Nicole Richie’s new dip-dyed pink tips? She revealed her new hot pink color on Tuesday, posting on her blog as well as her Twitter page with the caption “Tickled Pink!” Nicole is now among a growing group of stars brightening their hair with vibrant, eye-catching color. January Jones, Ashley Tisdale and Lauren Conrad, all tried out the trend earlier this year.
- Wet your pastel chalk and twist the hair as you apply directly onto the sections you want colored. The texture from twisting makes the chalk release more pigment.
- If you are a blonde, be wary of wetting the chalk first as it could deposit too much color and not wash out with one shampoo. Consider chalking without the water or test a small piece first to be sure.
- Always brush the excess powder out after chalking each piece.
- Finish with hairspray to secure the color.
- Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo after chalking.
- Conditioning treatment is a must after you wash out your chalk. You must replenish the moisture that may get sucked out with chalking.
