Kidadl's Top Pick

Whilst all the great hair chalk products on our list are highly recommended, if you're short on time, here's our top pick based on price, hair suitability and colours.

1. SYOSIN Hair Chalk

SYOSIN Hair Chalk

The SYOSIN hair chalk comes with 24 different colours to bring your hair to life! If 24 colours weren't enough, you can also combine all of these together to make a rainbow. Once you have created a wondrous hair chalk creation, you can simply wash it out with water and shampoo. They are very safe, non-toxic, non-allergenic and also environmentally friendly. Therefore, these are a great overall buy. If using on dark brown hair, it is best to have wet hair first so that the colour sticks more, and use hairspray or wax afterwards to lock the colour. For blonde hair, you can simply add the chalk straight to dry hair.
