My girls are never happy with their hair!
Becca has beautiful thick strawberry blond straight hair and Emma has beautiful, brown naturally curly hair that I am so jealous of. But they hate it. They always complain that they want their hair colored, highlighted or anything but their own natural color.
When I found out you can "dip dye" your hair with Kool-Aid
As I was preparing for our experiment with dip dying, I got in touch with Sarah from The "Riff" Raff Life to ask her some questions. Apparently she has had clients who have permanently dyed their hair with this stuff!?! I was sure to tell the girls this - just so they knew it was a possibility. Their hair is long anyway, so we could always trim it up a bit to cut out the color if we had to.
So ready to see what we did?
Dip Dye Your Hair with Kool-Aid
What You Need:
- 2 Kool-Aid Packets
- 1-2 Cups Water
- Chose your color and put 2 Kool-Aid packets in pot with water and bring to a boil.
- Boil for 5 min.
- Dip hair in Kool-Aid a few times, leaving hair in liquid for about 30 seconds each time.
- Let sit (or dry) for a while and rinse out with water.
We let her hair sit for about an hour and kind of dry almost completely before she rinsed it out.
And this is what it looked like when it was all done...
I LOVE this! I think it's so cute and different... AND EASY!
I do hope it washes out so we can do another color without a hassle, but we will see. I will update and let you all know!
What do you think?
It's MAY 2013 and this red color has faded a LOT but it can still be seen in her hair. Just an FYI - it doesn't not come out the way it has in Becca's friends hair. Becca's friends hair - it comes out within a few washes.
