How To Dye Your Hair With Kool-Aid
The first thing that you will need to understand when learning how to dye your hair with kool-aid is that it works much better on hair that is already a lighter shade. Dark hair doesn’t react very well to kool-aid. In fact, it typically will only show up as a tint. The second thing that you will need to understand when learning how to dye your hair with kool-aid is that it is difficult to apply to an entire head of hair and is therefore typically applied to a portion of your hair or a couple of sections.

This leads us to the two different methods used when learning how to dye your hair with kool-aid. The first method is a method called dip-dying and involves simply dipping the section of hair you want to be colored into a cup of very warm water mixed with the kool-aid color of your choosing. The supplies that you will need include: Unsweetened kool-aid packs (the number of packs depends on length and thickness of hair being colored), one dark-colored cup or disposable cup, one old towel, and an old outfit that you don’t mind being stained with kool-aid.
Begin by mixing your kool-aid packs with the very warm tap water in your cup. Fill it approximately ¾ of the way to the top. Twist the section of hair that you want to be colored into a ponytail and submerge it into the cup of kool-aid. Let it sit in the kool-aid for about 30 minutes and then rinse it out of your hair. Continue to rinse your hair until the water runs clear. This method should last anywhere from 1-3 months or longer, depending on how light your hair was before you colored it with the kool-aid.

The second method used when learning how to dye your hair with kool-aid involves using a thicker mixture of kool-aid and conditioner. You will need ¼ cup of conditioner, something to apply the thick kool-aid mixture to your hair, a few bowls and spoons for mixing the different colors if necessary, approximately four packets of Kool-Aid, and some plastic wrap. Begin by mixing each individual kool-aid color and conditioner into a separate bowl using the spoon to mix it well. Use a toothbrush or small paintbrush to apply the mixture to the desired sections of hair. Be sure to apply a good amount of the mixture to help it set well. Wrap the section of hair that the kool-aid blend was applied to in the plastic wrap (so that it doesn’t stain your skin or clothing) and let it sit for a minimum of 45 minutes or as long as overnight. The longer it sits in the wrap, the longer the coloring will last (or so the theory goes).
