These colors are very fun! That is what caught my eye and had me interested! Their cute case (tin, durable and fun colored!) Was ideal. The directions of application said to grab a small piece of hair, place the color stick onto hair, place thumb behind and slide down. Stays till u wash it out. Sounds simple enough! However, once home and package opened. I was pleased to see that each color was wrapped on its own to keep color from mixing. I was under the assumption these were chalk, dry style chalk hair colors. I was wrong. They are more a waxy almost like oil pastel crayon. When I placed on my hair, it left my hair extremely unmanageable. Was sticky, uneven and rubbed off on my shirt pretty bad. I only did two pieces. And changed my mind. I couldn't brush threw my hair at all, had to wash it out twice. It seemed to leave my hair brittle in those sections.
