    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 package Kool-Aid, unsweetened
    • 6 cups water
    • paper towels
    • plastic wrap


    1. 1
      Be very sure to use UNSWEETENED.
    2. 2
      Mix one packet of Kool-Aid with the water in a pot.
    3. 3
      Heat until boiling, stirring.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and cool to a temperature that is warm but not hot.
    5. 5
      Dip as much hair as possible into the mix.
    6. 6
      Then, with your head over the pot, ladle the kool-aid over the hair.
    7. 7
      Do this for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Wring out hair and pat dry with paper towels.
    9. 9
      Don't wrap in a towel as it will absorb too much colour.
    10. 10
      At this point you could wrap your hair in plastic wrap and leave overnight or for several hours.
    11. 11
      Then, uncover and let dry.
    12. 12
      After it dries, rinse repeatedly, shampoo and condition.
    13. 13
      Note: The excess colour may stain your skin.

      I've tried this way before, but that's too much water - the color will be diluted. I generally would use about 1/2c of water for shoulder-length hair. What I've learned since then is to mix the kool-aid into hair conditioner. Wash your hair and apply the mixed conditioner. Allow to sit overnight (if possible). Then rinse hair and do not shampoo for the first 24-hours. It works much better than water method!
