Always wanted to dye your hair, but were afraid of the commitment? Have you ever thought about dying your hair a different color, as often as once a week? You can — easily, safely and cheaply with Kool Aid. Whether teenager or adult, you can still have pink hair on the weekend and be ready for work on Monday. Kool Aid is a great way for you to “let your hair down.”

Things You'll Need

Put on plastic gloves. Cover your shoulders and chest with an old towel.

Empty the Kool Aid packets into a small bowl.

Squirt 2 to 3 tablespoons of conditioner into the Kool Aid. Mix until you get a thick paste.

Comb the mixture through your hair. Use your fingers to massage it into your hair, but not into your scalp.

Cover your hair with plastic wrap. Leave on for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

Remove plastic wrap. Rinse your hair with water until it runs clear.


  • The lighter your hair is, the more the color will show. For dark hair, you may need several applications of Kool Aid.
