4 Temporary Ways To Get Pastel Colored Hair.

Black Girls Pastel Hair

Pastel hair has been spotted everywhere from the runways to celebrities like Willow Smith, Frank Ocean, and Rihanna. While colors like cotton candy pink and perriwinkle are too cool to pass up, the dying process can wreak havoc on hair, especially some types of black hair. Consider these temporary solutions, which are also pretty cost-effective.

1. Hair Chalk.

This is probably one of the most popular temporary hair color solutions as you can purchase kits with a wide range of colors. Pro-tip: this method is extremely temporary, we definitely don’t recommend going out in the rain or swimming with chalked hair. Also, like most hair coloring, hair chalk can stain clothing.

2. Spray Colors.

Spray color can often produce a sticky, heavy, appearance but generally tends to wash out with much more ease than other temporary hair color methods.

3. Cream Eyeshadow.

No, seriously, this works! We swear. In fact, it works almost too well. Using creamy eyeshadows will definitely give you a bold color that will hold up nicely. The only downside is that it takes a lot to get it to completely wash out. We recommended following up with a deep conditioner after the removal process.
