11 Steps to Dye Hair With Kool Aid

How to Dye Hair With Kool Aid: 11 Steps

If you'd like to experiment with a different hair color but don't want to make a long-term commitment or use harsh chemicals, there are some "home remedies" that do the trick. This article will show you to dye your hair with Kool-Aid drink mix powder. The color will last several washings, and your hair will smell like the flavor used!


1. This technique will be more effective with lighter hair than with darker hair. Nevertheless, these steps will demonstrate that using Kool-Aid can still dye( more of a small tint) dark hair.

2. Put on gloves! Don't worry if you don't though, you can still remove the Kool-Aid from your skin.

3. Add the Kool-Aid to a small bowl. Use unsweetened, to avoid sticky hair. Don't use the artificially sweetened kind either, as the chemicals could bother your eyes. In this example, three packages of Tropical Punch are used for a reddish tint. You may need to use more packages, depending on the length of your hair, and how deep you want the color. This is a very messy process. (Blue is best made by combining blue raspberry flavor with a little grape.)

4. Add just a few drops of water to the Kool-Aid. You want a paste, and not a liquid.

5. Add a few drops of conditioner to make the color from the Kool-Aid permeate the hair a little more evenly. It also helps make a paste.

6. Mix the three packages of Kool-Aid, the water, and the conditioner, until you get a smooth paste. All the lumps have to be completely gone.

7. Work the paste into the hair. This is the fun part. You need help for this. Try to massage it into the hair, and not the scalp.

    If you're doing tips or highlights, use a highlighting wand and wrap the dyed sections in tin foil.

8. Wrap the hair in several long strips of sandwich wrap. You'll have to sleep in it, so do a good job!

9. Secure it carefully with tape. This isn't just to protect the furniture, or to keep the dog from licking your head. It's to keep the moisture in, and the dye acting longer.

10. After a good night's sleep, remove the plastic wrap. Don't be dismayed by the gruesome colours on your skin ... everything washes off! See How to Remove Kool-Aid from Skin.

11. Thoroughly rinse your hair. Do NOT shampoo , apply conditioner, and rinse again. Then comb it out and wait for it to dry. The final tint will be less obvious with wet hair.

      Here's the final result. As predicted, dark hair will show only a tint, rather than a complete colour change. But the subject was quite happy with the result!
