People have used homemade preparations to dye their hair for centuries, trying everything from peroxide and lemon to achieving a beach-blond look, using sage and rosemary to rinse the gray. If your children are desperate to become green or light blue, there are temporary opportunities to enjoy this form of self-expression. Hair dyes made with Kool-Aid dye the hair in a variety of colors, but the effect lasts only a few days and in many cases washes the first shampoo.
One of the best things about using Kool-Aid for hair dyeing is the true rainbow of colors to choose from. Kool-Aid drinks are available in all varieties from pink to light blue to dark purple. The color of the drink is the color you are trying to reproduce. However, the natural color of your child's hair affects the end result. If you haven't adapted to a particular shade pattern, you should pay attention to the tips below. Those who have light hair in the beginning can choose any color. The end result will be about the same color as the drink. Redheads probably need to be removed from green or blue pigments, as the end result may be a little healthy. Brown hair works well with red or orange tones and those with black hair achieve good results with blue, purple or dark red (black cherry).
If your child has oily hair, you should make it as clean as possible before applying the color. The oil surrounds the hair follicle, making adhesion more difficult. So wash your hair and then apply baking soda while it is still wet. Let the baking soda run for 10 minutes and then rinse with warm water. If the hair is normal, wash it before applying the color and if the hair is dry, simply spray it with water to seal it. Once your hair is wet, dip a towel over your shoulders to protect your clothes. Then make the paint mixture. Pour the contents of the selected non-sweetened Kool-Aid into a small bowl. Add ¼ cup of hair rinse and mix until well mixed. If you do not have a hair conditioner, use mayonnaise. For a longer color, add a tablespoon of white vinegar to this mixture before applying.
Once the dye is combined, apply it to the hair. If you apply it with your fingers, be sure to wear disposable gloves. Alternatively, the strips can be applied in ketchup with a brush or an old spray bottle. To dye a full line of hair, apply the dye and then comb the hair. Wrap the treated hair in a plastic wrap and wait 60 minutes. Rinse and style as usual. To remove, wash your hair as usual. The color is usually rinsed in three to five shampoos.
