Alex Hair Chalk Pens & Color Smash Hair Shadow

First I colored my ends with a purple Alex Hair Chalk Pen and below are the results:

You can find Alex Hair Chalk Pens in a number of places online and sometimes they carry them in Target or Ross in the little girls department. They will usually cost anywhere from $5.99-7.99 for a pack of 5. They come in both regular and metallic colors. These colors will last in your hair a good week.

After about a day of rocking the light purple in my curls I decided to vamp up the purple by using two different shades of Color Smash Hair Shadow Purple. I just went back over the light purple with the hair shadow. Below you will find the results:


Color Smash Hair Shadow will only last you about a day unless you set the color with hair spray (something that I never do) Color Smash Hair Chalk can be bought at many salons for $12.99 for one but I have found the best deals on them on There you can get a set of 12 for about 20 bucks. For those of you who may not know what the Color Smash Hair Shadow looks like here is a visual:

All these color changes happened within a weeks time without any dryness or damage being done to my hair in the least!! No matter how many other ways I may try or come up with to temporarily color my hair, Hair Shadowing will always be my first love! <3 <3 <3
