A deep conditioning would be needed right after you are done flaunting your colored hair, as the chalk will suck the moisture in it. For blonde girls, a clarifying shampoo would be great for removing all of the colors. Never go to bed without washing your chalked hair as the color will come off and you do not want to hassle yourself of getting the stains off of your pillow cases.
