Kool-Aid Hair Dye? It Works!

How To Dye Your Hair Using Kool-Aid
Sometimes you want something different and interesting. Sometimes you want a special color they don’t sell at the store, such as red, white and blue for the Fourth of July or a mix of green and red for Christmas. What can you do to get the perfect shade? Well, remember the last time you spilled Kool-Aid on your clothing and had a horrible time removing it? Kool-Aid stains and if it stains that means it dyes, so hair look out it’s time for a world of new colors coming your way. The idea is courtesy of Tabs24x7Official. She looked adorable in the brilliant blue hair and could wear it everyday. That might not be the case for everyone.

As the video suggested, the coloring works best on blond hair, but I could picture giving darker hair some cool undertones, such as brilliant red or enriching the color with orange or golden nectar. The color will eventually wash out after many, many washes, but to get it out quicker, Head and Shoulders shampoo, a stripping shampoo or plain dish washing soap also works. If you have leftover Kool-Aid, you can make great lip gloss by melting ½ cup Vaseline in the microwave in a microwave safe container for four minutes and then adding a packet of Kool-Aid. After allowing it to cool a few hours it’s ready to use. You can use it to match your perfect Kool-Aid hair.

What you need:

  • 3 Kool-Aid packets (color of your choice)
  • White hair conditioner (of your choice)
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Aluminum foil
  • Cup of hot water

Heat a cup of water in the microwave or stove, then slowly pour the water into a mixing bowl with Kool-Aid.
Pour the Kool-Aid mixture into a separate bowl with the conditioner. Now your custom-colored hair-dye is ready! Part the hair into sections and drench each section in the dye.
Finally, when the chosen section of hair is colored, wait an hour before rinsing with water. Let dry, and your gorgeous new look is complete.
