The first step before you dye your hair with Kool aid is to spread some petroleum jelly on your skin; especially ears so that the color comes off easily if it falls on your skin. Not take the flavors of your choice and mix them. You can also use a single flavor. Now add very little water to the powder. Make a paste, do not make it liquid or else it won’t stick to your hair.
You can also add a little conditioner to the mixture so that the color spreads evenly on your hair and it also helps in making a smooth paste. Now mix all these ingredients well till you get a smooth paste without any lumps.
Now spread this mixture into your hair. Its better if you take help as this can get messy if you try doing it yourself. Use gloves to prevent coloring your hands. Massage the hair and not the scalp. You can also do tips or highlights using Kool aid but you’ll have to use highlighting wand and wrap the highlighted section in tin foil.
Once you’ve done dyeing your hair with Kool aid hair dye, wrap the hair with sandwich wraps or tin foils. Secure it with tapes so that it remains tight and the moisture doesn’t evaporate. This will also keep you from getting color all over your furniture and floor.
Now keep it overnight and have a good night sleep. Remove the wrap and wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. The color on your skin will wash off easily so don’t worry about that. Comb your hair and wait for it to dry. You will get an amazing color as well as the smell of the Kool aid flavor used.
