Family Fun Crafts: Hair dye using Kool-Aid
I’m sure you’ve seen it everywhere, moms with a color streak or colorful tips in their hair. When I was in college, I paid almost $200 once to get orange hair with a white stripe for my college graduation. Okay, so it was really amber color with a blonde stripe, but it was still almost $200!
A few weeks ago, we were watching TV and my boy saw a commercial for some type of hair coloring kit and the girls were making pink and blue stripes on their hair. He turned to me and asked if I wanted that hair dye for my birthday because he would like my hair to be pink. Ummm…yeah, I kinda would!
I have always thought it was cute when people had just a touch of color in their hair so I’m taking notes from my friend, Mariana from The Domestic Buzz, and her tutorial on hair dye using Kool-Aid:
Dyeing hair with Kool-Aid… so Kool!
As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I created a Kool Creation by dyeing my daughter’s hair with Kool-Aid drink mix and entered the Kool-Aid + Big Time Rush Contest.
When I was in high school my friends and I would dye our hair with Kool-Aid before football games. Purple, usually, as that was one of our school colors. Fast-forward 15 years, and I find myself teaching my daughter the same trick! A fun hair dye that is easy, affordable and not permanent? AWESOME!
How to dye your hair with Kool-Aid
We started off by visiting Walmart to buy Kool-Aid…
Maya already knew that she wanted red, so we grabbed a few packets of Cherry Kool-Aid. Maura wanted to try purple, so she opted for Grape.
We also added a few other Kool-Aid product to our shopping cart…
You can dye your hair with Kool-Aid in just a few simple steps!
1) Choose the color (flavor) you’d like.
2) Untangle your hair.
3) Find a bowl that you don’t mind staining and pour the contents of 2 Kool-Aid packets into it. I used 3 for Maya’s dark hair.
