It may take a while. I have a friend who somehow got a pitcher of Kool-Aid on her hair, and she had blue hair for a week. May I suggest trying it in summer?

It depends on how long you allow the kool-aid to set in your hair. The longer you have it in your hair, the longer it stays in.

YOUR ALL CRAZY TO PUT COOLAID IN YOUR HAIR

 

Answer by Somebody that works at Hairmasters
Submitted on 6/17/2004
Rating:  Rate this answer: Vote
  Ok, I mixed Kool Aid (grape/purple) with conditioner and put it in my hair and it stayed in for two and a half months. I left the Kool Aid in for like, 12 hours, but it was totally worth it cause I got an amazing color (light purple). I have black hair, so I had to bleach it first (and I did wash it with shampoo after i dyed it). Also take note that I have what some people may consider long hair (down to the bottom of my ears). All in all, studies have proven that it's different for everyone. People with more fine hair seem to lose their color quicker then normally for some reason. I hope that helped you guys out. I'm currently working at Hair Masters and we can answer tons of questions. ROCK ON!!!

First, if you have dark hair or any kind of brown hair...BLEACH IT... not blonde hair dye...has to be bleach...then don't use the conditioner...with your hair rinsed from the dye...throw on your Koolaid mixture (1 tablspoon of conditioner to one package of Koolaid-unsweetened, or you will have a sticky, awful mess on your head) let it set as long as possible.. then rinse. VIOLA!!! You have color... and yes.. toothpaste takes it out...

to make highlights all you have to do is use tin-foil and then get the strips of hair u want to highlight and paint the die onto it w/a square of tinfoil underneath. When all the hair u want is covered fold over the tin-foil. Continue w/the rest of the hair u want to highlight! good luck!

READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ATTEMPTING. I WILL LAUGH AT YOU IF YOU DON'T. Okay, some of you are right on it, and some of you are just crazy. You have to mix conditioner with Kool-Aid UNSWEETENED mix. I assure you, if you use sweetened, you're hair will be a disaster! You need about 2 times as much conditioner as you would need if you were to condition your hair. Put it in a bowl. Then, put 2 UNSWEETENED (sugar-free) packets of Kool-Aid (color is your choice) in the bowl, and mix well. You might want to wear clothes you don't mind getting messed up, so that if anything drips on them, you don't have to freak out. Put on rubber gloves and massage the mixture into your hair. Pile the hair on your head, and wrap in plastic wrap. The longer you leave it there, the longer the color will last. If you have dark hair, you will need to bleach it first to get any noticeable change. If you have red hair, this may not work at all, because red hair is hard to dye. Once you have sat as long as you can stand with the Kool-Aid in your hair, take off the plastic wrap and rinse your hair until the water runs clear. DO NOT stand in the shower to rinse your hair. Lean over the side of the bathtub and put your head under the water. If you have a detachable shower head, use that. If you stand up, the color will run down onto your body, and leave you stained. It comes out with a good scrubbing, but you would rather not have to deal with it, trust me. Once you're done, you can go about showering as normal. Hope I've helped.

Wow. Reading all this is really helpful, but what if you just want to dye the ends of your hair. I know what you are all thinking "duh! you just dip the ends in the stuff." or "just rub it into the bottom of the hair!". The only problem with that for me is that my hair is layered, and short. Longest hair is to my shoulders, shortest hair is to the bottom of my nose. Hope you can help, thanx a bunch!

Hey, it's me again. I massaged the koolaid into the ends of my  hair, and let it sit over night. The next day, my hair with the colour in it was all crunchy, and I couldn't stick a comb through it. I decided to just wash it out, and the colour came out very easily with shampoo. What did I do wrong? (My hair smells like lemonade, yum, lol)

I have found that if you only want to do the tip then you should, mix 1 packet of kool aid with 1 cup of water. Then soak the ends in it for 2 hours. Then let it dry out, and rinse it. then when you shower if you use condtioner in it every cople of days it will stay in for a long time.I got mine to stay in for a year and a half once, then i got it cut out of my hair.

For the tooth paste you can use it with both fluoride and whiting if you have light colored hair. If you hair is dark just try and find some tooth paste without eather.
If you leave the stuff in over night it should be fine, but if you use foil be careful. Your movements in your sleep could make your color blotchey. franny, you said you tryed it and it didnt work, how did you put it in your hair???

i just put cherry red streaks into my dirty blonde hair. this is how i went about doing so:
I sprayed my hair down with water, and brusehd it so it was all even. i then mixed a baby food jar full of conditioner with about... 1/4 of the koolaid. because it didnt mix so well, i had to put it on the counter and swirl it around, but in little parts. i didnt use foil, seeing as how last time i did, i ended up with a nice slice on my ears and neck. so then pulled tiny sections of my hair, and starting at my roots down, covered them in the mixture. i let it set for about... fifteen minutes before i dryed it with a blowdryer. ive done several of my friends hair, one of which was a light brown. i dyed it orange, and it came out nicely. i would suggest getting someone else to do it if you have terribly hand-eye coordination. i also died a head of jet black hair red. that was awesome. whenever the light hit it, it was a shiny red color. another tip: the cheapest brand of koolaid you can get is the best. its made with the least amount of stain-resistant products. hope that helps! :)

It makes me laugh that chances are I'm alot older than you guys. But we used to do this in the 80's all the time. It works best if you bleach out your hair first, with peroxide usually sold in beauty supply stores if you have a friend with a cosmetology lisence or if they sell the stuff in the drugstore. I ld not recommend this if you have damaged hair because you could be bald from the bleach.  Then after you bleach out then put the koolaid on your hair with conditioner or water probably with conditioner would be best. Let it on for as long as you want for the amount of color you want.  I would not recommend letting this on overnite.  You could wake up and scare the crap out of yourself.  Plus I think once the stuff dries out it doesn't work.

Good Luck!

I dyed my hair with cherry Kool-Aid and it stayed in for about 2 months. And yes I wash my hair everyday.  When you are dyeing it, keep the Kool-Aid in your hair all day if you can.  The longer it is in during the dyeing process the longer it will stay in.

Basically, if your hair is as dark as a dirty blonde tint or maybe even darker, you have to bleach it first.  Not only will this make the color last longer, but it will appear much more intense, maybe even brighter than you intend.

Ok, I am in two plays, and for one of them I'm playing a goth, and for the other one I'm playing a chorus girl from the '40s.

For the goth, I want to dye my hair purple, but I need it to come out right away because the other play is around the same time, and if it doesn't wash out, they will kick my out.

I have very fine, dirty blonde hair. How long should I leave it in and how should I take it out? Should I even do it at all?

Hello there everyone! I am a hair stylist and color expert at TAZU hair salon (TAZU hair inc.). And to respond to Cole's question about dying your hair with Kool-Aid, most of you are correct. There are a couple of things you need to understand about dying your hair with Kool-Aid. Number one, Kool-Aid is a powder with a very high concentrate. Which means that it is very susceptible to staining/dying things. Which means certain hair colors will respond to it very quickly. And with that said, IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE LIGHT COLORED HAIR, DO NOT DYE IT WITH KOOL-AID!!! The whole point to using Kool-Aid is, to avoid the damage hair dye will do to your hair. If you are already willing to bleach your hair, then you mys-well just use a store-bought dye on it. There are plenty of dyes out on the market these days that will dye your hair the same colors Kool-aid will and give you the optimum results. Bleaching out your hair does so much damage, damage that usually cannot be un-done. I cannot stress this enough!! People, you CAN get these hair colors without bleaching your hair, with store-bought dyes! Now this is only for people who have dark hair. And the reason why I am saying this is, people who have dark brown-black hair will not be able to see results by dying their hair with Kool-Aid. It is a simple fact, accept it! So if you do have dark hair, you are the people who are going to need to use store-bought hair dyes. But for the rest of you who have light colored hair, from my experiences with Kool-Aid dying, you will need to mix it with conditioner. And the reason why is, Kool-Aid is a very pasty powder when mixed with water. The conditioner will make the mixture smooth and way more manageable when it comes down to the actual dying of the hair. For every Kool-Aid package you use, you will need two table spoons of conditioner. I also suggest adding a couple of drops of water. Mix all these ingredients together. After you have done that, you will need to apply the mixture to your hair. The objective is to make-sure all the mixture is applied to the hair, EVENLY. After you have done this, leave it on for 15-20 minutes. If you have light colored hair, there will be no more of a color change to your hair, after 20 minutes. Rinse with cold water. Rinsing your hair with cold water will help the dye to set better. After you have done this, towel dry and style as usual. I do suggest that you use a old towel or one that can be damaged. As you may get a bit of access hair color on this towel. And it's as simple as that girls and boys! Enjoy the pleasures of dying your hair with Kool-Aid! And remember people with dark hair.. Kool-Aid simply is not an effective hair coloring dye for us! Accept it!

I found out that if you put 2 packets in conditioner like everyone else said, and put a little bit of vinegar (Yeah, I see you cringe)  It stays in a lot longer. But if you want it in just for a little while (Ex. A dare... Pep rally.. Halloween... trip to Granny's house...) Then don't. Durrh. Ok, this sounds dumb, but is lime Kool Aid green? I remember it being clear a few years ago...

Okay, first, it doesn't matter what type of conditioner you use, as long as it doesn't have chunks of undetermined slime floating around in it.  Second, unsweetened is SUGAR FREE, or NO SUGAR ADDED.  Third, any toothpaste should work, but if it doesn't, just try another brand.  Toothpaste won't kill you if you try it and it fails.  Fourth, THE LONGER YOU LEAVE THE MIXTURE IN FOR, THE LONGER THE COLOR WILL LAST.

If you have really dark hair (black/dark brown) and, let's say, you put in red kool aid, how will it come out? What about with a dark color of kool aid, like blue? I haven't tried it out, but I just want to make sure (seems someone has already tried it) so that I don't waste my time and because I don't want to bleach my hair.
Has anyone tried mixing in several different colors of kool aid in the conditioner?!
Cool aid is SUCH a good idea!! =ř

The thought of mixing the conditioner and the kool-aid together,putting it in your hair..wrapping it in saran wrap ..and letting it sit for as long as possible was okay till the rinsing part. did it twice (cold and lukewarm water) and had left it all in for almost 45 minutes. Have dark blonde hair...and a tiny bit of the color stayed, but not much really. I then tried food coloring and conditioner...let it sit for about 20 minutes..and then 1/2 rinsed it out, so it was able to be blow dried if needed. When my hair was semi-damp..i took a small paintbrush,took a small bowl and put the food coloring in there, and "painted" what i wanted , then did a light blow dry. Looks great now. Do not want anything permanent..just temporary..but the food coloring as far as the "depth" of the color to me is the way to go. Hell, even if you have to do it every other day...you can get food coloring at the dollar store for god's sake. Good Luck.

Unsweetened kool-aid is without sugar. The normal, 15 cent packets, where you add sugar. If you add sugar, your hair will be a mess, it will be all sticky and it wont work. Using conditioner with the koolaid will work better because conditioner seals your hair, trapping the color in with it. Dont use just water, it doesnt work. good luck with dying your hair!

O yeah, last year on St. Patricks day, I dyed my hair with Sharpie marker, I streaked it, and it came out a month later! It slowly faded, but it was pretty sweet, and I have orangeish hair! So if Kool-aid doesnt work, try Sharpie Marker make sure it is permanent. How well the color stays also depends on the absorbancy of your hair...my hair is very absorbant so color holds longer.

I've been dying my hair with Kool Aid for the past 2 years at least. I found it easier to first mix all the kool aid then soak your hair in it for about 15 min. After that I usually towel dry it and blow dry my hair. I think it works great and the color comes out really bold and bright. It does fade a little with every wash and since kool aid isn't that expensive I re-dye it everytime I take a shower. I've never mixed it with conditioner, but I would recomend to use a color safe conditioner. Also, it would be a good idea to put a plastic wrap over your pillow the first couple nights because the color does rub off.

Mix 2 packets of unsweetened koolaid + two handfuls or so of condition. Massage into your hair, then cover with plastic wrap. Let it sit for as long as possible. Ta-da. :P~ By the way, if your hair doesn't take the koolaid, a jar of hairdye is only about $10 at any beauty store.

I dye my hair w/ koolaid all the time. I have only mixed it w/ conditioner once and that doesn't work very good, what you do is just wash your hair and towel dry, then you just use your fingers to put the koolaid where you want it. Then you leave it in for like ever, I've left it in for almost 24 hours, but you don't have to, The longer you leave it in the longer it lasts. After your done waiting you rinse and condition your hair, wait about a day before you shampoo. Only shampoo your hair when its dirty like ever other day. It has lasted up two almost two months before fadding alot. I have only tried this w/ cherry flavored koolaid. You get a pink color

Once i didn't lean over the tub to rinse it out and i had to go to school w/ a big red stripe down the front of my face, my coverup wouldn't work and i have ready sensitive skin and couldn't scrub it out, it was hilarious. also if you dye it w/ out the conditoner don't wrap it up, just let it dry in a ponytail or down, its uncomfortable down cause it really crunchy, do this when no one will see you cause its hilarious lookin, your hair feels like a hardhat! to avoid gettin it all over your forehead put tape along you hairline, vaseline doesn't work cause it always gets in your hair and that stinks horribly, it won't dye and its hard to get out. Also if you want to get the koolaid out just get in a clorinated pool, takes it out in one to two swims, so if your experimenting do it over the summer. I have never tried toothpaste cause i usually don't want to get it out.

Okay people, You don't know how to bleach your hair? You go down to the store and find the box of bleach not blonde hair dye BLEACH. I would recomend Garnier Fruitist How ever you spell it. I have dyed my hair 29 times. I had black hair and I used that and my roots were  really blonde and the tips were a light brown. After you can dye you hair with the kool aid. Follow with the instructions above.^^

Okay this is straight form my mother and she was dying her hair with kool-aid for YEARS!!! anyways...what she said to do if you want it to last a long time is to boil some water and make a thick sticky paste with the powder...and then leave it in...want it to last longer? leave it in longer...this way your not wasting you conditioner...and then you just rinse it out with some water and poof you got kool-aid hair...also if your hair is darker you should use blue or grape kool-aid...it's the only ones that will come out...blondes can use anything...anyways...

Advice Thin Hair doesn't hold color well so that might be where some problems are coming from.  Also when you dye you hair DO NOT use the conditioner that comes with the kit it keeps you hair from absorbing the Kool Aid color.  The Tooth paste with take the dye completely out if you bleached you hair or you're a blonde otherwise it will only speed up the process.

okay people there is another way of dyeing your hair with kool-aid that my sister told me about and it works.First you get a pot about 3 to 4 inches deep and put water in it, put it on the stove and let it boil, next after its done boiling put a pack of unsweetened kool-aid in the pot and stir until dissolved then dip the hair you want to be dyed in the pot keep dipping your hair in a nd out until you get the shade pf color you want then leave in for about a day or so and then when you go to take a shower let your hair drain to where it runs clear and there you go. PS if you get kool-aid on your head toothpaste will take it off but toothpaste wont take the kool-aid out of your hair no matter what kind you have. I've had my hair dyed with kool-aid about 5 months ago and it wont come out.!Have fun!

for the last day of school, me and my friends died our hair with kool-aid. My friend did orange bangs, pink, red, blue, and green streaks and it turned out awesome. Her hair is a normal blonde color. My other friend, she has medium brown hair, did red in the front, green on the sides, and blue in the back. The red turned out the best, the green looked...interesting and the blue didn't show up at all. I did blue bangs, green sides and a red streak in the back. My hair is a dark blonde and all of our hair turned out awesome!!! We even used packets of not only kool-aid,but wylers and a cheap brand from shop-and-save. we mixed them all together and the color was awesome. The only thing was that all of the purple show up like a grayish green color when we mixed the powder with conditioner. How do you guys get an awesome bright purple??? I luv ya!!

To the loser who left the dye in their hair for an hour...  Of course it didn't work!  I always leave mine in over night.  Also, to the people with dark brown hair...  I have dark brown hair also, yet I don't bleach my hair and the dye works fine, you just have to stick with certain shades.  If you want Pink Lemonade colouring, then yes, you'll have to bleach your hair.  I tried a blue-ish koolaid, turned out to make awesome green streaks.

Well, we did it.  and it was still visible on our unbleached hair.  It turned out more green than blue though (we used a mix of the blue raspberry lemonade and some other blue one...  Two of the raspberry to one of the other flavor and enough conditioner to make it about the consistency of Elmer's glue).  It looked much bluer in the bowl than it does on our hair (which, as we said is greenish now), but it is easily noticeable.

actually it works better when you take lots of packs of kool-aid and then boil water-rolling boil then you keep it hot and soak your hair in it--if your hair is dark then you do it for a long time it took me like 4hrs but it did it 3 months ago and its still really bright,it stays for a LONG time!! plus if you put vinegar in it it lasts longer.

hey i have light brown hair and i just wanted my tips done and i used cherry kool-aid (in the packet) and what i did is  i boiled about 2 cups of water in a small pot on the stove and after it was boiled. i stirred in the kool-aid packet and stirred it n then i dipped in my "side Bangs" and i had my mother dip in the back tips of my hair. i love it... its in right now i dont know how long it stays in yet cus i just finished but i would recomend to wear grubby clothes cus it drips. if u dont want it RED! RED! then use a comb and run it through cus it wont be as dark. Thats wut i did first and i was like a light pink not very noticeable. But yeah talk to yall later good luck, o and also turn the stove off when u stir in the koolaid it shud be hot enough and have someone hold the pot under ur hair as you do it and it wont drip as much.Love yall!

I have a friend who wanted to dye her horse's coat rainbow for a costume thing, she used the cool ade and it worked really well. The horse is a strawberry blonde for all you un-horsey people and I found that the black cherry unsweetened worked the best, it came out with sort of a reddish black color and stayed in. You still can find some color in his coat now, five months later. Byzy, hope you people that need to dye horses found what you need.

 

Answer by TamGlam

About 5 years ago I decided I wanted to dye my hair with Kool-Aid for Halloween. I had heard about the technique from my mother's co-worker who used to be into "punk", and often used Kool-Aid to dye her hair. I have naturally light brown hair and wanted to go red. I ended up using a combination of Strawberry and Cherry.
I didn't use "unsweetened" Kool-Aid and I didn't bleach my hair first. I left it in for approximately an hour before rinsing it out. I was very happy with the way the color came out and it lasted until I had to cut it off (several months later). I was quite impressed with the results, but I got to a point where I honestly wanted it to come out. After a couple of weeks the constant smell of the sweet, sugary Kool-Aid made me quite ill. At that time I wasn't aware of any "toothpaste" method of removing Kool-Aid (does that work for removing Kool-Aid from anything else?).    

Now, several years later, I want to try it again but this time as highlights (or more technically low-lights).
So I guess my point is the results are entirely individual. What some of you are suggesting is the only way to do it isn't necessarily accurate. But to be on the cautionary side, I suppose it doesn't hurt to use only "unsweetened" Kool-Aid. As far as bleaching, personally I would recommend doing a test spot first. Unless it is absolutely, unequivocally necessary for your personal taste to bleach your hair-DON'T. It causes quite a bit of damage to your hair and strips it of it's natural moisture, among other problems you will encounter. Definitely heed the advice of using conditioner in that case!

If you insist, do your research beforehand! You might want to read websites like this one:
hairboutique.com/tips/tip6430.htm  
I found that site just by doing a Google search for "bleach hair damage".

But then again I am kind of paranoid about what I do to my hair. I like my hair (well it can be a love/hate relationship at times!), and I don't want to have to worry about beating myself up with regret later on in life about something I do to it now. For instance, like my mother who used to IRON (WOW) her hair because she wasn't happy with her naturally curly hair (which by the way, I'd give anything for!) and now has EXTREMELY dry hair! I don't blow-dry my hair (another way to damage hair), I don't use styling products in my hair (like I did in the '80's, just because it's not soft and natural), and I very rarely put chemicals in my hair. That is one reason I liked the idea of using Kool-Aid as a dye.
My advice to all of you: Do research before you do anything to your hair, because you may have to live with the consequences of whatever you decide to do for the rest of your life.

I hope some of this information has helped. Good luck!! :-)

Okay, Okay...this is not rocket science here. This is all trial and error. First things first...For the people who can't keep the color in(may have dark hair or color will not easily stick) try this  But WARNING the color will not fade out until at least a year or two...HEAT IT UP. If you use the Kool-Aid packets, just put one or two into a sauce pan and heat it until there is steam from it. DO NOT Boil then stick your hair into it, it will ruin the base strand of your hair! Dip whatever hair you want to in it and only keep in there for a couple of minutes. I bet your hair changed colors now! And I bet it won't come out for awhile!!! Also for another tip...Don't use pink lemonaid unless you have blonde hair because it will not do anything!!!! It's a light pink, if you put that on dark hair it is just a waist of time!    
Love and Light,  Elisha

Ok!Me and a few friends are planning to do this whole koolaid proceedure. So am i supposed to mix this with conditioner or water, i only want tips n streaks, my hair is dark brown so how long should i leave this stuff in? I want it to show up, but i am definitely NOT bleaching my head! So how long should it be in there? Do i wrap it in clear wrap or tinfoil? Oh, and should you leave it in longer depending on the colour? THANKZ!!

I have read that a vinegar rinse is good for your hair because it restores the hairs natural pH.  I am going to try to dye my hair the old fashioned easter egg style where you mix food coloring and vinegar; only I'm not sure how long I can sit through the smell of vinegar.  I'll let you know how that works out.

HI there all first of let me stater the obvious well for some it may not be so obvious
Instructions on applying Koolaide
1. Pick your color I find that red,orange,green and blue look best for my blonde corored hair. and The purple (although not very noticible) looks GREAT on brown hair.
2. I would suggest you wear a pair of plastic gloves and an old clothes or apply the koolaid when you first get out of the shower ( I find it works best dying my hair when my hair is dry so the dye doesnt drip out of my hair) next brush out your hair so it lays the same way that you part your hair generally so that when you apply the dye (if you do streaks) it wont look all patchy

3. for streaks: wet a cotton ball till u can flatten it out to look like a pancake, Fold the sides up so it looks more like a taco, then poor a small amount of koolaid onto the cotton ball and put a very very TINY bit of water onto the koolaid just so it doesnt go into your hair all clumpy.Select a bit of hair that you want to dye and take the cottonball and wrap it around the hair as close to the root as you can get and slid it down slowly ( as not to drip) till you get to the bottom of your hair. brush your hair again and repeat again untill your satisfied with your streaks *note the color looks ALOT darker when its wet than it does when it drys so if your wanting A dark color apply the dye dry your hair and then apply some more.
4. blow dry your hair :) then your done!

Koolaid Pros and cons
Pros :Ok they make this stuff for you to DRINK so theres nothing in there that is damaging to your body., It gives color for about 3 days and then fades IF you follow the instructions I have included
nice Inexspencive way to die your hair
Easy to apply
No harmfull chemicals
WILL NOT HARM YOUR HAIR , it does not cause split ends and will not give you mumps or measels or last for years and years and it will not kill you!

Cons
Not very dark color
May stain hair for a few weeks depending on prior dying
For any questions please email me @ fiona@van99.com

Okay I am going to try to highlight my hair with Kool_aid,again. But just so you know you can highlight dark colored hair by bleaching the parts you want highlighted and putting it in foils. Get a square of foil, place it near the end of the root, use a medium paintbrush, and paint on the bleach. Let it sit for about 30min to an hour, IMPORTANT, Rinse out the bleach. Partially towel dry you hair. Pull out the same strands you bleached and repeat the same procedure with 2 tbsp. of conditioner, and 2 packs of unsweetened Kool-Aid, Double the amount for longer hair. Again Paint it on with a medium sized paint brush, and wrap it in foil, keep it in as long as you possibly can stand it. Then rinse it out. If you have to  bleach your hair, this excludes you blondes..  Condition your hair regularly, the bleach can really screw up the condition of your hair.

Lots of people have asked "What is the unsweetened kind?" and nobody's answered, so here goes. There are two types of Koolaid. One comes in a box and you just add water. This is already sweetened: don't use this. The second kind comes in a pouch and you add water AND sugar. This is the unsweetened kind. At least it is until you add the sugar! This is the kind you want to use. But whatever you do, DON"T add the sugar if you're using it to dye your hair!!!!

Well umm ohk! i tried dieing my hair with Pink Kool-Aid and it didn't really work...but then again my sister did it and it lasted all summer...you have to leave the Kool-Aid in for a long time or else it wont work!

For great color, first bleach your hair do not wash it with conditioner but use vinegar in the water this will get the shampoo residue out of your hair them, mix the cool aid and apply to your hair, leave for as can.
them rinse out.

I didn't even use conditioner when I dyed my hair Kickin' Kiwi Lime ten years ago.  I'm pretty sure all I used was the unsweetened kool-aid packets, vinegar (to set the color) and hot water.  I also wrapped my hair in plastic wrap and let it sit at least overnight.  I have dirty blond hair - the color stayed in for longer than two months.  It was like a mountain dew green color.  So all ya'llthat say "It doesn't work, it doesn't work!" ya did something wrong, and all of you who are thinking about trying it don't believe them.  I thought mine would wash right out too but it stayed in that long and I had to go to my senior prom that way.

Well, I streaked my very light hair with blue kool-aid.  It worked pretty well. Unfortunately I couldn't let it soak for a very long time, because I was discovered, but it has been in through 4 shampoos and it is almost gone.  It began to look greenish after the first shampoo.  I like it very well and I'm glad it comes out because I've had problems with dying my hair before.

Step by step Kool aid instructions

first of all, you need to determine if bleaching is going to be necessary. Brunettes will need to bleach to achieve any kind of noticeable color, as will redheads. If you do have red hair, please understand that this may not work at all. Red is the hardest color to dye over. If you have darker hair, but all you're looking for is a tint of color, you don't need to bleach. Blondes will not need to either.

Do you want streaks or over all color? The basic instructions are the same for both. The difference is that streaks should be separated from the rest of the hair by wrapping in foil.

Bleaching is relatively simple. Buy a bleach kit from the store. You want a kit that specifically states bleaching. A blonding kit will not be enough. Mix the ingredients according to the directions in the box and apply to hair in a well-ventilated room. Put on a shower cap and wait the recommended amount of time. At this point, check the hair to see how much it has bleached out. If not enough, put the cap back on and wait another ten minutes. Keep checking your hair until it had turned a yellowish white color. Then go rise the bleach completely out. Do not use the conditioner that comes with the kit. This will close off your hair to the color.

Next you need to mix up the Kool Aid. Choose a color you like, the brighter the better. Mix two packets of unsweetened mix with a double quarter sized amount of conditioner. I cannot stress enough that this must be unsweetened Kool Aid. If you use the sugar-added type, your hair will be a mess. If you haven't bleached your hair first, go wet it. Put on a pair of gloves and apply the Kool Aid to your hair. If this is not enough to thickly coat the hair, mix up some more and continue. Wrap your head in plastic wrap and leave it. Leave it as long as you can stand it, all day if you can. The longer you leave it, the better the color will adhere to the hair.

Over time, the color will fade out. If you want it out quicker, toothpaste will speed up this process, but if you bleached the hair or you have really light hair normally, it will not remove the color totally.

Here are the rules:

I've used Garnier conditioner and it worked fine, so you could just use that.

1. Two packets of UNSWEETENED kool aid (pick any color)

2. 1 tablespoon of conditioner to every packet of kool aid

3. massage this mixture into your scalp. Let it sit there for as long as you can. (If you're doing this without your parent's consent, I suggest doing this at night).

4. I don't suggest rinsing out your hair in the shower. Dip your head into a bathtub and rinse it that way.

5. If you want to wash out the color sooner, use toothpaste.

MADE EASY.

Dyeing your hair with koolaid!? It's cheap, afforadable, and totally fun to do with a friend.

Steps
Mix two packs of unsweetened Kool-Aid with lots of conditioner, in order to make a pasty mix.
Dampen your hair.
Apply mixture to your head.
If you're doing tips or highlights, use a highlighting wand and wrap the dyed sections in tinfoil.
Leave it in for 12 hours if you have dark hair, or 6 hours if you have blonde hair.
Rinse out when you are done, and voila!



Tips
To avoid getting the dye on your pillow, wrap your head in plastic wrap, then cover your head with an old ragged towel.
If you don't like the results, the quickest way to get it out is with toothpaste.
Be patient! Some people think that this could damage your hair, but you are letting conditioner sit in your hair for 8 hours (average).



Warnings
Make sure you use unsweetened Kool-Aid. Anything else and your hair will be a mess.



Things You'll Need
Gloves
Small mixing bowl
Conditioner
2 packets of unsweetened Kool-Aid
Highlighting wand (for hightlights, but if you don't have one try a pipecleaner)
Tin foil/plastic wrap
Vaseline, to put on the edges of your face so it doesn't get dyed too.

To those of you who have dark hair, you do not have to bleach your hair to die it with kool aid. I have dark brown hair and died my hair with wild cherry, cherry, and orange kool aid and it came out a beautiful color. So before you listen to all these people telling you to bleach your hair listen to me. I've done it so i think i have more experience. N-E ways have fun dying your hair and holla at cha gurl.

I did that to my hair today. me and my friends did it a little differently. we just mixed the koolaid with water, and let it settle for an hour or so , when we washed it a nice bit came out, but the colour which stayed was nice. im going to take it out though, i just tryed it for fun.

to put kool-aid in your hair you get your hair wet, then you put the bag of kool-aid all over your hair then you add a little more water in your hair and you then rub it all over and let dry. if you want to get it out use shout like the stuff you use on your clothes to get out stains.

I also have really short hair and was wondering how to do the ends, and how long it usually lasts. I have light blond hair (looks like Elisha Cuthbert's when she had really short hair). I was also wondering if one could mix Kool-Aidís, like Red pink and Orange to get a more neon pink?

Half of you are fools. All you have to do is put the 35 cents unsweetened koolaid in your hair for a while, longer depending on color then rinse it out dont wash it, conditioner will make it last longer, for tips just soak your friking hair!

So, the gist of the matter is, all you blonde peoples, how long did the color stay in? My parents might go a little crazy if it stayed in too long...but I'm REALLY REALLY excited to try! I need to have a dark purple, so should I just leave it in my hair longer? GBY!

I just tried it for the first time today without conditioning and I only left my bleached hair in there for, like, five minutes. (I didn't have much time at first, I'm going to redo it later) All the color drained from my roots to the ends. It left it in the most AWESOME blonde/strawberry/orange/red fade ever.

i have a medium light colored hair and i want to dye the ends of my hair red but i dont want to bleach it because i want this to be temporary. do i HAVE to bleach it to make the red really stand out or do i just leave the kool-aid in for longer?

guys are practicly right- but if you want a tint dont bleach ur hair- Bleaching it gives it a definant color- soo if you have blonde hair i would use any color besides red- red is the hardest to come out- Blue looks hott, may i add!

If you would like to give yourself kool aid highlights be sure to use an old pillow when you sleep the first few nights because the color may run.

If you did an allover color with koolaid...keep your color bright and vibrant by adding a teaspoonful (or less) of koolaid powder to your daily amount of conditioner!  Even if you are not using koolaid as a dye, you can still do the koolaid thing to make your hair look just a little brighter than usual (it works like John Freda's Glaze...but a lot better and a TON cheaper!).  For blond hair use lemon, red use cherry and if you have brown hair...try using coffee grounds instead of koolaid to keep your hair looking great!

You are all crazy for dyeing your hair with Kool-Aid.  Go to the store and spend a few bucks on the real thing.

I don't trust the koolaid dying method, I'll just stick to bleach and SpecialEffects dye - at least that stuff last for at least 6 months (at least it did with my hair...) If you want something more permanent I'd completely recommend it.

If you happen to read this, just know that I have never heard of a successful hair dying with kool-aid and conditioner. I recommend using vinegar and kool-aid (think easter egss), it worked for me and all of my friends growing up and didn't damage our hair. My friends had blonde, light brown and red hair and I have very dark brown hair and we never bleached it before we dyed. I usually dyed mine using cherry and it cam out awesome. Maybe I should quit going to hairstylist and try it again! Have fun and leave it in a really long time!

If you have darker hair put your hair in the dye and leave it in for 8 to 12 hours. Make sure your hair is damp.

I wanted to dye my hair red, but I just want to do highlights. lol.

I wanna make sure I'm getting this right. I put about 4 table spoons of conditioner in a bowl, then 2 pkgs of UNSWEETENED kool-Aid..my color pref. And paint it on my hair that I want highlighted, wrap them in foil and leave in for 20-45 minutes? Or longer than that? Tip my head over the bathtub and run it under the water until the water flows clean. Then I can blow dry it or towel dry it right?

hope this is right. lol

You don`t have to use that much conditioner and you don`t have to use tin foil if you do streaks..I`d probly be on the safer side to..But I just did mine and it looks good and I didn`t use that much conditioner or any tin foil..
