Why don't you use a coloured hairspray?

The crazy colour (or other semi) will probably take several washes before it comes out completely, depending on the porosity of your hair.

Or you could try coloured extensions?

As above, it depends on the porosity, if you have bleach etc, what about a wig ? X

chalks perfect, dont get oil base ones they stain hair, your looking for soft pastels! oil ones are a pain to get out and feel sticky :) xx
