Hair Chalk


Suddenly the stores are full of this stuff! Hair chalk isn’t as bright as bleaching the snickers out of your tresses and then dyeing, but it’s perfect for the clubhussy who wants to go rainbow for the weekend, but still show up for school/work Monday morning in regulation black.

All you have to do is wet your hair, rub the chalk on it section by section, let it dry, then iron/curl it to set the color and make it last longer. No surprise, it shows up more brightly on light hair than dark, but it’s pretty bright even on black hair!

Sorry, this isn't a great picture, but you kind of get the idea.

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!

  1. I’ve used this stuff before, and oh my gosh it gets literally EVERYWHERE. I used lime green in a white bathroom….hours scrubbing it out of the tiles and sink. And even more time scrubbing it out of the bathtub when I rinsed it out. it works just fine, nice and bright green even on my red hair, but man I’ll never use it again.

    • Wow, I never thought about that, but OH YEAH it must be about the same as powdered paints, huh? Any surface that isn’t perfectly sealed must turn into a total color sponge. Thanks for the heads up! (And I’m dying to see your hair green! It’s such a gorgeous color of red, I can hardly imagine it as anything else!)
