Indigo Hair Chalk

HAIR CHALK

It’s about that time of year where the warm sun and clear blue skies call us all outside. I can’t think of a better way to add even more brightness to your life, than with this vibrant hair chalk! These fun blues can add a slight change or a major pop to your daily look.

What You’ll Need:

2 tbsp. Indigo Powder, Ultramarine Blue, Bright Blue Jean
1/2 tsp. Kaolin Clay
1 tbsp. Witch Hazel
1/2 tsp. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 tsp. Distilled Water

**If you are not local, you can get all of this and more at Bramble Berry! They will ship directly to you!**

Wearing gloves, mix together the kaolin clay and indigo powder.

Create a slurry with the arrowroot powder and water. Mix it together using Bramble Berry’s white mini mixer. Microwave for 5 seconds. You want it a bit thick, but you want to be sure it doesn’t get gummy. I noticed anything over 6 seconds turned gummy.

Now is the time you will add the witch hazel to the dry powders. Hand mix together while still wearing gloves.

Once mixed, add the slurry to the mixture. Squish together until the texture is like modeling clay. You don’t want it too crumbly or wet.
If it’s too dry, spritz with witch hazel one spritz at a time.

Roll the mixture onto parchment paper until you get the desired shape you’d like. Allow to dry overnight.

We made three different colors using indigo powder, ultramarine blue and bright blue jean.

To use:
(From SoapQueen)

1. Wet the hair you’d like to chalk with a spray bottle.

2. Apply the chalk however you’d like to the your wet air.

3. Comb through to evenly distribute the chalk throughout your hair.

4. You now want to set the chalk with a heat source. I’d recommend blow drying hair and not putting a straight iron or curling iron on wet hair as that can damage it.

5. Style hair however you’d like, then spray chalked hair with hairspray so it doesn’t brush off onto clothing!

Enjoy!
