HOW TO COLOR YOUR HAIR WITH KOOL-AID

I am going to teach you how to color your hair by using Kool-Aid. Make sure when using Kool-Aid, you don’t use the pre-sweetened Kool-Aid, for it will make the hair very sticky. First, I am going to have you put on gloves to prevent staining. If you don't want to wear gloves, be aware that your skin may stain but that you can still remove the Kool-Aid from it and I will have the directions on how to remove the Kool-Aid from the skin at the end of these directions. Don’t use the artificially sweetened kind, as the chemicals might irritate your eyes. You may need to use more packages than recommended here, depending on the length of your hair, and how deep you want the color. Suggestions for suitable Kool-Aid matched to a hair shade change are: Tropical punch is great for a brighter red, Cherry works for a deeper red, Black-cherry mixed with strawberry works for a bright red, Mixing raspberry and grape can make a purplish red, Experiment with variations of your favorite Kool-Aid colors to create other colors. Second, now add the Kool-Aid packages to a small bowl along with adding a small amount of water to the Kool-Aid and make sure the powder dissolves creating a smooth paste, not a liquid. Next, add a few drops of conditioner to help the color from the Kool-Aid permeate the hair more evenly. Adding conditioner also helps to make a paste, which is easier to handle.
Once you are done applying Kool-Aid to the hair, wrap the person whose hair you're dying in towel(s) (or a garbage bag with a clip to keep it in place) to avoid stains. Remember that Kool-Aid can stain fabric, so use an old towel or cloth. Once done coloring the hair, wrap the hair in several long strips of sandwich wrap. You'll then have to sleep in it, so do a good job! This step is important not just to protect your
