Don’t judge, because I can’t say today is a good hair day, but I’ve had a go at the soon to be released L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Chalk in Garden Party. It turns out to be a liquid and I found it really easy to use. With most bright hair colours, you can’t get a good result unless you have really light hair already, but given that this green shade was going on dark brunette hair, it’s done really well! I am thrilled with it.
I used a bowl to pour some of the liquid into and sacrificed a make-up brush to the cause to paint it into my hair. I found it very helpful to use the little mascara brush to comb it through.
Above, you can see it contrasts really well. I haven’t used Hair Chalk before so I can’t really compare it against anything else but I genuinely think this is fool proof. L’Oreal Professionnel claim it will wash out completely the next day if you need it (I’d use a good detox shampoo such as Ojon) to but can last for two shampoos if not – if this doesn’t happen, I’ll add it into the post, but I’ve no reason to think it won’t, although this does make me wonder what might happen if I get caught in the rain. It will come in a variety of shades (bring it on, Violet!) and I’m going to end up using them a lot. To be picky, I think I’d like to add some serum over it because chalks do knock out shine, although I must admit it doesn’t feel in any way chalky or dry.
It launches in late October (around £15) and I’d suggest that you give it a go – even if you are chalk-shy like me! I’d never do my whole head in this – eek, can you imagine – I’d be like a broccoli florette! But the odd strand here and there is very cool. Other colours include Sweet Sixteen Pink, First Date Violet, Blue Ocean Cruise, Coral Sunset, Coffee Break, Bronze Beach and Black Tie.

As a highlighted blonde I really fancy these but after a similar promise from Fudge hair paints years ago which left me sporting a lavender section of hair 3 weeks after application I’m a little hesitant.
Love this idea!
As L’Oreal test everything on animals, i would be appauled using their products. There are other brands out there who manufacture hair chalk, for a much cheaper price and most importantly, they are not tested on animals.
Oh delighted you’ve tried these – I’ve been spotting them again and again on instagram over FW. They look ace!
That green looks amazing. Totally going to try these when they come out!
Hmmm…interesting. This seems like a great product to try out. I’ll def check on this one but with a different color.
You’re so right, the outcome is great!
this sounds really cool – looking forward to trying it out 🙂
I am a bit surprised they’re called chalks being a liquid! But nevertheless, I will most certainly be giving these a go! I’m a brunette too, so it’ll hopefully be nice to get some colour without having to resort to bleach!
LOVE these. I can’t wait to try them out.
Could be worth a try but at £15?? Using normal chalk will probably give you the same result for much cheaper! It’s giving me an idea for Christmas/New year hair though!
