While AirPods and Nespresso makers are some of this year’s most popular holiday gifts, this unexpected find — which is just $10 right now — is also proving to be a hit with shoppers.
This six-color hair chalk comb set with over 3,000 five-star ratings, which happens to be Amazon’s best-selling hair chalk overall, is quickly rising to the top of the retailer’s Movers and Shakers chart. Many Amazon reviewers rave about the marked-down hair chalk and call it “fantastic fun,” making it the perfect last-minute holiday gift for creative kids and adults.

Unlike other hair chalk products, which can be messy or tricky to apply, these colorful tools comb the temporary hair color onto tresses and make it easy to apply a little or a lot of color. Each set comes with red, orange, pink, purple, blue, and green chalk, which washes out in the shower. You can layer them to create custom hues and make them last a bit longer (up to three days without washing) with a little hair spray.
With the holiday season and gift buying in full swing, sales have skyrocketed and increased by 100 percent this week alone. The $10 find is the perfect size and price for a stocking stuffer, white elephant gift, or fun last-minute trinket to give to folks young and old. Reviewers say it’s a great present for all ages, describing it as “great for gifting” and the “perfect gift for the girl who loves beauty.”
Parents love it, too, revealing it’s a fun way to inject some color into a dull day at home. “During this period of confinement (COVID 19), it has been hard to keep the kids busy,” one reviewer wrote. “I purchased the chalk hair combs and painted my hair — I will let you imagine the surprise on my kids' faces when they saw. We ended up spending a good portion of the day ‘painting’ our hair in different colors. This is a very safe and inexpensive way to have fun as a family. I highly recommend it.”
