kool aid dip dyed hair - July 18th 2015, 01:26 PM

I'm planning on dip dying my hair with kool aid but have a couple of questions about it:
Question the first: how long will it last?
Question the second: will the containers I put it in also be stained?
Question the third: which colours show up the best (I have dark brown hair)?

Thanks for reading.

Hey there! I have never dyed my hair with Kool Aid, but this resource had some great tips for doing it and answers some of your questions. Good luck!

I had a coworker who did this with kool aid (she was 15 yrs old at the time :P) and I think she said it lasted for 6 months but then she had to redo it. I think it depends on each person's hair, the original color and thickness.
I think red is a good start for this project but it's really up to you. I know that for certain colors like blue and green, if you were to dye it with actual hair dye you would have to bleach it white first but I'm not sure if you gotta do the same for kool aid.

I wouldn't put sugar and artificial crap on hair, talk about gross, dried out and sticky

To answer your questions:
1. I expect a wash or so, as you have dark hair.
2. Yes.
3. It's difficult to get dip dye to show on dark hair. Purple is probably your best bet but it won't look vibrant, just tinged.

I did it two years ago with red koolaid and it never came out! I had to see a hair dresser after four months with the still bright red koolaid.
My hair was so long and I didn't want to cut it out, so she washed and even tried bleaching it but it turned orange! In the end she had to cut my hair...
I recommend not to do it!
