How To Get Koolaid Out If You Dyed All Your Hair

My recent post about getting koolaid out of your hair will not work for someone who has dyed all of their hair with koolaid because it requires the use of boiling water. That would obviously burn you if you tried it. So now I'll tell you how to get koolaid out of your hair if you've dyed all of your hair. There are two ways you can try:

Way #1:

Here is the first way: Get ready for your shower (meaning like take off your clothes), then put baking soda in your hair while it's dry (before you get in the shower). Just coat your hair with it. Turn the shower on and let the water get warm like usual. Then get in the shower and rinse the baking soda out of your hair. Be careful not to get it in your eyes. End by washing your hair with a clarifying shampoo. This may need to be repeated until all of the dye is out.

**Update: You can also use Head N Shoulders shampoo to get koolaid or any dye out of hair.

Way #2:

You'll need a pan big enough to dip all of your hair in. You may even plug the kitchen sink and use it. All you need to do is fill the pan or sink with warm water. It should be as warm as you can handle without it being uncomfortable. Then put baking soda in the water. Mix enough in so that the water looks cloudy. This may take just a few spoonfuls or half the box. It depends on how big your pan is. You can play with the amount until it works for you.

Now flip your hair over and dip it in. This will take a while so you may have to do it several times in the day before all of the koolaid is gone. Just be careful not to get it in your eyes or ears! The water will turn whatever color you dyed your hair.

Mine turned orange because of my most recent dying adventure:

Again, you'll need to dip your whole head of hair for as long as you can, possibly several times in order to get the dye completely out. You'll also need to wash it because baking soda really tangles up your hair. This can be really annoying, so try the first way to see if it will work before trying this.


  1. on way 2, does my hair need to be dry?

    1. I don't think it matters. It would probably work either way. You can also shampoo with Head n Shoulders and it should also come out that way.

  2. Does it damage your hair? Like make it split ends.?

    1. I don't know. I had split ends before doing it so it's hard to tell. But I do know that it at least strips your hair of the natural oils (which happens anyway all the time due to chemicals and stuff). I know that some people even use baking soda to wash their hair instead of shampooing their hair. But you have to at least deep condition your hair when you are done. Don't use one of those stupid deep conditioners with the chemicals and stuff. Go to the food section of the store and get some extra virgin olive oil.
