Borboleta hair chalk

Borboleta hair chalk
Hey there sugar peas!20746451
I decided to take a little break from the Japan travel diary because there’s so many other things lining up right now but I promise that I won’t forget about it and that I’m going to show you every place I visited.
A few days ago I went through the countless beauty stuff I got in Japan and came across a purple hair chalk I bought at the Donkihotei in Tokyo. They were mostly sold out and they didn’t have the colors I first had in mind but I took one nevertheless and tried it out the other day.

I’ve always wanted pretty pink oder baby blue hair but I’m too chicken to actually dye or tint it that way. But for everyone who’s a chicken like me, there’s hair chalk! I frankly don’t know how the colors would look with dark hair but with mine it worked perfectly and since it’s a Japanese product, I’m pretty sure that the colors works also on very dark or black hair because it’s just colorful dust on and not in your hair.

Even though I love pink, I was slightly disappointed because I already own a pink hair chalk and was really curious about having purple hair and in the selfies I took, the hair looks even more pink than it actually was. I didn’t wear gloves when I applied it which was a big mistake because my hands turned out deep purplish and everything I touched got purple imprints. And I also renounced to fix the chalk with hair spray, simply because I don’t really have hair sprays except for a sea salt hair spray which I used before I put on the color.

I was kind of worried that the color wouldn’t come off my hair any everything I touched but of course it got washed out right after the first shampoo. My brush though is still purple and there’s still fingerprints everywhere. This can easily be avoided and I will totally stick to the instructions the next time. :totorosmile:
Although the color doesn’t look that vibrant and is of matte finish, I enjoyed playing around with it and am definitely going to buy a decent fixing spray so I can wear this without fear of leaving stains on my clothes. What do you think? Is pink wearable all the time and do people judge you more quickly? I didn’t feel so strange to me but I’m afraid (yeah, I know I shouldn’t but I do!!!) what people may think of me!

Sorry for the messy hair and such but obviously I didn’t do this mess after, but before I took the shower. I can totally recommend this to anyone who’s thought about dying his hair but doesn’t know which color to pick. They’re not so expensive (at least this one wasn’t) and you get a good idea of how you might look with colorful hair. Of course it’s really amateurish and even a stupid, untalented person like me can pull it off but it’s still worth the money and you get fast results without having anything permanent.

Have a nice sunday everyone and see you soon~ :on:

  1. Also ich besitze auch hair chalk, hab sie aber bis auf einen Testversuch noch nie richtig benutzt. War ne ganz schöne Sauerei. xD Und leider funktioniert es mit meinen dunklen Haaren auch echt nicht so gut.
    Finde aber, dass es eine super Alternative zum färben/tönen ist und das pink/lila steht dir auch ganz wunderbar. :)

    • Echt jetzt? hätte ich nicht gedacht, dass er auf dunklem Haar nicht so stark zu sehen ist.. :(
      Danke für das Kompliment! :tanoshii:

    • It’s great to hear that I’m not the only chicken here.. :tongue:
      I’m happy you think so! I just know so little about this matter that I don’t know what options there are…

  2. Hey danke für dein kommi^^ du hast ja echt nen tollen blog! ^^
    Danke, sparen macht zwar nicht immer spaß aber am Ende weiß man wo für man das macht. Der Japan Tag ist wirklich toll. Wir haben in Düsseldorf ein Japan Viertel mit 12.000 jap. Einwohnern, Hotels, Geschäften,… eigentlich pilgert man das ganze Jahr da hin, nur an diesem Tag kommen alle zusammen (ca. 100.000) aus ganz Deutschland und am Ende gibt es ein Feuerwerk.^^
    Danke dir! =)

    • Hallo Ayumi!
      Danke für den lieben Kommentar! ich kann mich gar nicht erinnern deinen Blog besucht zu haben aber vielleicht ist das schon eine Weile her?! egal :D Nach Düsseldorf muss ich bestimmt mal!

  3. Omg, the pink looks REALLY beautiful on you! So cute! Jelly! I’d never be able to pull that off!! hehehe. I think any colour would suit you tbh. :P
    By the way, I saw the comment you made on my post and thank you so much you’re so sweet! :D I checked that comment using my phone and I swiped it some way accidentally so the comment has been removed and I tried every way to get it back but I don’t know how to! So I just want to say I’m SO sorry and it was an accident because I didn’t want you to think I deleted it on purpose! If I could, I’d make it reappear because it was a lovely comment! I love your blog (So Kawaaaai! hehe) so the last thing I’d want is for you to hate me.
    Keep it posting! :D

    • awwww…. :w:
      you’re too sweet! But I’m actually really pale and don’t know if green or turquoise would suit me ^^.
      I left you a new comment but it isn’t as good as the old one :( Sorry!!! Happy to have found your blog :blinkheart:

  4. You look awesome with that colour!
    As I’m searching for a job I don’t want to permanently colour my hair in an unnatural shade, but since I was little I wanted to try violet hair, so I was thinking about chalks. Maybe diy.
    I already have a sparkling pink non permanent die, but I never know when to wear it. Maybe on carnival…

    • Thank you Piperita!! I’m glad you think so! I can absolutely recommend this!! Curious to see the results on your super long and beautiful hair!!

  5. I wonder if those chalks would work on dark (read: black) hair. I’ve always wanted to try them, but I’m afraid they wont show on me. Do you have any black-haired buddies that have successfully tried them out?
