DIY chalk hair: 1) get soft color pastels (not oil) from craft store. 2) apply conditioner to prime the hair cuticle. 3) rub color down in one direction. 4) Air dry 5) go over it w/an iron (curling or straight) to seal. 6) apply a bit of hairspray to further seal. * Stains (but washes out) Great Prom idea
It isn't even a braid! I tied it, tried it, and tried it some more... failed it! I suspect the fail was due to my hair being rediculously thick, I was able to master the technique but it just never turned out this nice... I have a very thick ponytail but would love to know through comments if this worked for somebody with thinner hair than myself!
