I like to newshautelinks 2018 2018 13 think that I’m a “cool mom”. At least I can be. But when it comes to dying my kids hair I’ve always been against it. I want(ed) to keep my kids hair as pure as possible so even hair products rarely touch their heads. Kind of weird since obviously we wash their hair and who knows what all those crazy chemicals really do but I digress.
Disney’s came along last week. with her purple hair and ‘s blue hair. Of course, my girls went nuts over their hair and began asking again if they could dye their hair. I finally agreed (yep, without even talking to my husband) but with only 3 weeks until school starts up we needed something completely temporary. I still wanted something less harsh so as I’ve seen before, we went the Kool-Aid route and I’m going to show you how to dye your hair with Kool-Aid.Dyeing with Kool-Aid was fairly simple but on my oldest’s dark brown hair it didn’t really take. We tried both purple and red and soaked it for a long time but you still couldn’t see the color in it. I think next summer I’ll probably make it up to her by getting her hair dyed professionally once and forall.
My youngest’s insanely blonde hair did just as I hoped it would – GORGEOUS bright color. So if you’re looking to experiment and want a temporary color that’s semi less chemically (yes, that’s a word) go grab a few Kool-Aid packets and follow along to learn how to dye your hair with Kool-Aid.
What You Need
You’ll first want to cover your table with plastic wrap and put on disposable gloves. We still ended up with some splatters of Kool-Aid on the table but I later got it out with rubbing alcohol. Next time I’ll cover the table with a bigger piece of plastic wrap for sure. Also, you’ll want to use an old towel around you because it will get stained too and it doesn’t come out.STEP ONE Boil water and on stove in a small saucepan. I wanted to make sure the color was bright, bold, and lasting so I put 3 Kool-Aid packets in with 1 cup of water. I added more kool-aid and less water to really saturate the hair with color. STEP TWO: Once the Kool-Aid is at a rolling boil remove from heat and transfer to a. As soon as possible, carefully submerge hair. Water is extremely hot so go slowly. I put my daughter’s hair in a high pony tail then only put her ends in so we would end up with a faded tips look. STEP THREE: Lift hair out of dye and carefully separate the hairs and resubmerge. I did this a few times to be sure every hair would have dye on it. After about 10 minutes slowly remove hair, squeezing out excess and blot with a towel (DON’T RUB!). STEP FOUR: Let hair COMPLETELY dry then wash as normal.
You’ll then have beautiful, temporary hair color!
