On a recent trip to Bed Bath & Beyond, after searching thru all of the amazing kitchen gadgets and picking out a new shower caddy, I stumbled upon a clearance endcap in their personal care section. On it I found a can of Metallic Teal hairspray for $5 and of course, had to buy it. I’ve never used hair chalk although I’ve been tempted to try it. My sister has experimented with crazy hair colors for years and always has a streak of pink, purple, blue or a combination of colors in her hair (my mom hates it!!). I figured this was an easy, cheap and temporary way to try out blue highlights.
I tried it this week and wanted it a little subtle since I was going to work and had no idea how vibrant it would be. It went on easily, but didn’t really seem to stay. I felt like part way thru the day it just wore off – but I may not have put enough in – I didn’t want it to be too crazy. I’ll keep experimenting and probably use more next time. I also searched Pinterest for some ideas on teal highlights. These are all pinned to my ‘hair’ board. (I should really rename that board – totally boring name).
Once this can of spray is gone, I’ll probably start to experiment with semi-permanent dyes. Jerome Russell Punky Colours got good reviews on Ulta. I’m sure my mom will love having both of her daughters with weird colored hair 🙂
