Hair chalk for kids

Does your child love dressing up or fancy dress parties? Take their creative play to the next level with the best hair chalk for kids. Select from the colours of the rainbow and transform their hair with fun shades that wash in and wash out.

Vicky Thear, a senior colourist at SALON64, gave us some advice when it comes to using hair chalk for kids. She said, “Hair chalk is a great way to experiment with hair colour for children and super easy to use! With kids constantly wanting to get creative with their own hair more and more hair chalk is the perfect solution keeping both parent and child happy being a great temporary measure.

“Make sure that the ones you buy are non-toxic (which all should be) and be careful if your hair is particularly light and porous as the colour can stay in this type of hair a little longer than perhaps advertised.

“They are great to use for parties, festivals or to keep children entertained in the ‘new life’ we are all experiencing at the moment!”
