Dye your hair with Jell-O by mixing a packet of Jell-O with hair conditioner in a small bowl, then applying the mixture to your hair. You need Jell-O, hair conditioner, a bowl, petroleum jelly to protect your skin, water and a towel. The process takes approximately one hour.
- Select your colors
Select the colors you want to use in your hair. Purchase Jell-O in these colors.
- Prepare the mixture
Mix one packet of Jell-O and hair conditioner in a bowl. Avoid mixing the colors by using a separate bowl for each Jell-O color.
- Protect your face, neck and ears
Apply petroleum jelly around your hairline and on your ears. This prevents the color from staining your face, neck and ears.
- Apply the Jell-O mixture.
Coat the hair with the Jell-O mixture. If you are using different colors, section the hair, and apply each color to a different section. Dampen a towel in warm water, and wrap it around your head. Wait one hour.
- Rinse your hair
Remove the towel from your head. Rinse the Jell-O mixture out of your hair, and wipe off the petroleum jelly. Style your hair as desired. The Jell-O color lasts from seven to ten washes. If you want to keep the color longer, repeat the process once the Jell-O fades.
