Lady Jayne Colour Bomb Hair Chalk*

LJ5

Hair chalk is all the rage these days, so when Lady Jayne released their cost effective range of hair chalks, I was thrilled to try them out! Lady Jayne has released four colours in their Colour Bomb range, Mystic Green, Midnight Violet, Rebel Pink and Candy Lady. Being that all four colours are pastel, I was a tad worried they wouldn't show up on my dark brown hair! But, I had my sister over and we had a play with the colours... and here are the results!

LJ1

First up we tried a quick little braid! The ombre look is so popular, particularly with hair chalk, so I wanted to try something a little different! With the applicators (which just clamp your hair with the chalk in between so the colour rubs off) it was pretty easy to apply! However with my darker hair, I did need to reapply a few times over to create a richer look!

Upon removing the braid, I was left with gorgeous bright streaks! I particularly love this look! I have fairly long hair, and I found that just by doing this one whole streak, I used up majority of the hair chalk included in the kit! There was some left over, but not a great deal. So, I would probably say that using this on your hair in parts is far easier than trying it out on your whole head!

Midnight Violet was my favourite, so rather than doing streaks again, I tried to colour my fringe! I found it a lot harder to manage on shorter hair, as the applicator is a bit too big in comparison to my fringe! However, once I got the angle right it became a quick job, and I didn't use anywhere near as much of the product, so I had a lot left over for other times!

Overall, my sister and I had a lot of fun applying this to my hair, and I really loved the results! I found that majority of the colour stayed put until I washed my hair, although brushing it through definitely made the colour more subtle and not so bright. The Lady Jayne Colour Bomb hair chalks are a great way to change up your look without going for something more permanent! Afterwards there was a little bit of mess, but I just threw an older towel down on the floor and it was fine! The packaging says to be wary of the colour staining clothes in case you do happen to get some on you, but I had no problems with that at all.

The Lady Jayne Colour Bomb Applicator & Refills cost $9.99 each from anywhere that sells Lady Jayne

Have you tried the Lady Jayne Colour Bomb hair chalk yet? If so, what are your thoughts? Do you like the idea of having fun coloured hair?

  1. These sound great! I have a pink Kevin Murphy colour bug, but it actually barely shows up on my black hair, and fades off really quickly. These sound much better (for the price!) and seems so much easier to apply with the applicator!
