So, the battle of the liquid chalks is on.. L’Oreal Professional Hair Chalks are on their way any moment now, but pipped to the post by Bumble & Bumble Spray Chalks (£15). I’ve got to say that a spray or a liquid seems a little less daunting to me than the blocks of chalk I have seen – I don’t know why, but then I don’t do a lot with my hair so am quite novice at this kind of thing. Bumble & Bumble washes out after one wash.. L’Oreal Professional Hair Chalks claim to stay a little longer. I loved the L’Oreal liquid chalk, and I know I have some Bumble & Bumble on its way so I can do a proper review later on, so this is just a heads-up.
Bumble & Bumble Spray Chalk comes in four shades so far; Cobalt, Lavender, Mint and Blush. They’ve literally just hit the Boots shelves HERE.
NB: Just after I’d written this post, a couple of samples arrived in the post. I have a mixed response to the product. Firstly, it is very hard to be accurate with a spray – I wanted a couple of strands in lavender – impossible (unless I guess I was to make some kind of shield with a hole in it to wind the hair through) – and actually, I found the spray very drying. I then wanted to curl the chalked strand – again, impossible. Having eventually sprayed the strand and everything else in nearby surroundings, the chalk all brushed out with a minimum of brushing – which I guess is good if you want to get rid of the look in a hurry but bad if you were expecting any colour to stay on while you brush. I really have to say, there was a lot more flexibility with the L’Oreal Liquid Chalk, and at £15 for the Bumble & Bumble chalk, I really don’t think it’s worth it.
