Always wanted to add a little color to your hair, but the rents
wouldn’t let you? Well, here is your chance to add a fun pop of color
to your hair! Mom and dad will let you color-up, 'cause it's not
permanent, it washes out. Have fun as you connect with your inner punk and see what color streak looks best on your hair! Dyeing colored streaks in your hair with supplies from the grocery store is super-easy and fun.
What You'll Need:
Kool-Aid assorted colors (2 packets per color)
What You'll Do:
1. Wash and dry hair. In a cup add 2 packets of Kool-Aid to 1/8 cup of warm water, and stir until dissolved.
2. Section off the strands you want to dye and place them into a folded piece of foil. Paint on the Kool-Aid dye, making sure to coat all hairs thoroughly. Fold the foil over and bunch it closed to secure the dye inside.
3. While being careful not to burn the scalp, heat the foil using a blow dryer. Let it cool for 20 minutes. Rinse your hair in cold water, apply a hair conditioner, and let it set for 20 minutes. Rinse and style your new colored locks as you like.
