  • If the dye is at all runny add more conditioner.
  • You want it to be nice and thick.
  • Mix and mix until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • After a bit of mixing you will have amazingly vibrant hair dye!

My girls had so much fun with this that they wanted to make hair dye in every color of the rainbow!

To do this we simply repeated the process above using a different Kool-aid flavor each time.  Not only did the hair dye turn out awesome, but my entire house smelled amazing, too!

Kool-aid Hair Dye Application

  • First, determine what parts of hair that you want to dye, and then separate it into sections.
  • Use a hair dye applicator to paint the selected sections of hair.

  • You can use one color of dye or many.
  • You can dye a strand or two of hair or your whole head.

  • Get creative and have fun with it!  
  • Just be sure to fully saturate the desired areas.
  • Once the desired strands are saturated in dye you can twist and secure them using hair clips.
  • Use aluminum foil to help keep sections separated of necessary.
  • Allow the hair dye to sit for 30-60 minutes-the longer the more vibrant the results.
  • Then, wash your hair as normal, and be wowed by the results!

As I said, you can use one color or many.
You can dye sections, the whole head, or just the tips.  
Get creative & have fun with it!

Tips & Tricks:
  • Worried about a long term commitment?

  • If using multiple colors of dye you may want to use plastic wrap to keep the colors separated.
  • As with most dye this will stain skin & clothes.  
  • Be sure to cover the surrounding area and have paper towels on hand.  
  • I also recommend wearing gloves.
  • This hair dye is permanent and does not wash out.  It does fade slowly over time though.
  • Kool-aid can be purchased in bulk in a variety of colors on Amazon here.
