My daughter who is 11 has been wanting to dye her hair. Of course with her age I am not comfortable with that. This is the next best thing! It is easy to use and washes out with no damages. The hair chalk comes on the combs. All you have to do is pick your color and comb on the portion of hair you want to color. My daughter has a really dark brown hair so the color only shows a tint. I am sure with lighter hair it would be a more vibrant color. My daughter loves it though.
