Changing the color of your hair with Kool-Aid requires an old towel, hair clips, a package or two of sugar-free Kool-Aid in the desired color, a large mixing bowl, wooden spoons, water and hair conditioner. Supplies such as petroleum jelly, latex gloves, Saran Wrap and a shower cap may be needed. This process should be done overnight for best results.
- Mix the color
Place a towel around your shoulders, and put on a pair of gloves. Mix the powdered sugar-free Kool-Aid packets in a mixing bowl with a couple of drops of water to form a paste.
- Separate your hair into sections
Separate your hair into sections depending upon where you wish to apply the color. Use hair clips to divide hair for highlights.
- Apply petroleum jelly to protect your face and ears
Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly around your hairline and on your ears to protect them from stains.
- Apply the color
Add a few drops of thick hair conditioner to the Kool-Aid mixture, and apply it where you desire the new color to show. Use your fingers to saturate each section thoroughly.
- Cover your head with Saran Wrap
Cover your head with Saran Wrap to keep the Kool-Aid dye from dripping. Wear a shower cap to help keep the clips in place. Sleep with the dye in your hair overnight.
- Wash and style as usual
In the morning, wash your hair and style it as usual.
