How to Dye Your Hair With Kool Aid

If you are looking for a way to make a bold and colourful statement with your hair, look no further than your grocer's powdered drink aisle. More than just a sweet treat on a summer day, Kool-Aid packets can be used as a temporary hair colour. Because of the wide array of Kool-Aid flavours, there are many different colours you can choose from. It is best to use unsweetened Kool-Aid packets, as these will prevent your hair from getting too sticky.

Instructions

1 Protect your skin from getting dyed by using petroleum jelly. Dip your finger into the jelly and spread it on your forehead, neck, ears and hairline to keep it from getting stained with Kool-Aid. After you have finished dyeing your hair, you can remove the jelly with a warm rag dipped in a soapy water solution.

2 Bleach or lighten your hair as desired. If you do not have blonde or light-coloured hair, it may be hard to see the Kool-Aid dye. Consider using a bleach or colour fixing solution to lighten your hair and prepare it for dying. Bleaching also helps the hair become more porous and absorb more colour.

3 Empty several Kool-Aid packets into a small bowl. The more packets you use, the more vibrant your hair colour will be. Sprinkle in several drops of cold water to create a paste. The ratio should be approximately one tablespoon of colour to every teaspoon of water. Add a few drops of colour-safe conditioner. This will not only soften your hair, but it will help the dye to distribute evenly throughout the hair. Mix it together with a colouring brush.

4 Spray the hair lightly with a spray bottle. Use your colouring brush to apply the dye throughout the area of the hair you want to cover. Once your hair is completely saturated, allow it to sit for as long as possible. To help the colour to really set, consider wrapping your hair in plastic wrap and taping in place overnight. Be sure to cover your pillow with plastic or a case you don't mind getting ruined.

5 Rinse away the dye with shampoo as usual. Use a conditioner in the hair, especially if you bleached or lightened your hair before dying. Let dry and style as desired.
