How too: Dye your hair with Kool Aid


What you'll need:
 a pack of sugar free kool aid of any color, a small bowl, water, and conditioner. 



                                    #1.  put the kool aid in the bowl,
                       add a small amount of water and conditioner (make a paste)


 

                #2.  put a generous amount of the paste on the piece of hair you want to die,
                           than put a baggie over and secure it with a pony tail.

                     
                                  #3. leave it in over night, then rinse it out with cold water.





the lighter your hair is the better it shows, if you have dark hair try using a darker color like: 
 blue, red, or purple.



TIP! to get the kool aid off your hands/ out of your hair, rinse with baking soda!
