Add Colour to Your Natural Hair in 2 Easy Ways

Have you thought about colouring or dyeing your natural hair? Lots of naturals out there with TWAs, Locs, Waist-Length Hair and everything in between, have colored hair ranging from fiery red to beautiful blues to blonde and more. Just search for "coloured natural hair" and you're bound to be greeted with many images of lovely naturals in an array of rainbow colours.

But what if you're not quite ready for a drastic change? What if you want to test the waters a little bit, and experiment before making a commitment. Well, here are 2 very simple ways to add colour to your natural hair.
  1. Hair Chalk! Yup, you read right - chalk! Hair chalks can come as the stick chalks you remember from nursery and primary school, or in little tubs. They come in a dazzling variety of colors, so it's really up to you!

  2. Hair Spray! Actually, hair spray was the genesis of this post, as a friend asked me where she could get coloured hair spray in Nigeria (for the record, I don't know where, but if you do please share). This offers a quick and easy way to get some colour in your hair. Be careful though, as your fingers may get stained. See a short video below of a natural who used hair spray.
I also saw online where someone used eye shadow to put colour in her hair!

NOTE: be careful while using these items, as they can leave color on your hands and/or clothes.

Have you ever tried using any of these methods to colour your hair? If not, would you?
