I just dyed my hair with koolaid and then got it out so easily! Usually it takes up to 2 weeks to fade out of my hair naturally. I'm going to share with you how I did this. First, if you've dyed your whole head of hair, you'll need to follow a different method. You should click here to read how to do that. Now, let's take a look at the awesome dye job I just did on myself:
It was so cool. If you want to find out how to do this, click here. I was sad to have to get rid of it, but I did it for the benefit of all of you out there who want to get koolaid out of your hair fast!
*Before you do this, just know that it will dry your hair out, so you'll need to make sure you know how to deep condition your hair with extra virgin olive oil or some other deep conditioning oil.
The first thing you need to do is boil some water in a pot (enough to dip the dyed portion of your hair in). Note: I have no idea if sticking your hair in boiling water is bad for it. Once the water is at a rolling boil, you should drop in a tablespoon of baking soda. It will fizz up so just keep that in mind. I didn't know it was going to do that and it scared the crap out of me.
Then you should take it off of the heat and place it on the counter by the sink. Dip your hair into the pot of baking soda water. You'll hear some fizzy noise, the water will turn red (or whatever color you dyed your hair) and then it's gone. Just like that. I continued to dip my hair in the water for about a minute just to make sure I got it all out. **Leave your hair in the baking soda water for less than 30 seconds. This should be enough time to get it all out.
Pour the water into the sink, rinse the hair off and that's it. I still can't believe it was so fast and easy. Here is a picture of my hair after removing the koolaid today:
My hair looks kinda bad here because for some reason it got extremely tangled after doing the baking soda thing. I put some conditioner in it so that's why it looks kind of stringy. Instead of leaving it alone, I tried to fight with it so now I have a boat load of new split ends. I was already needing a trim...
Be careful with your hair after you do this. Also, try not to do this a lot of times. It may or may not be damaging to your hair.
*Edit* Maybe it would be a good idea to actually wash your hair after rinsing out the baking soda. I have been informed that some shampoos may chemically react with baking soda. I have used regular Suave when washing out the baking soda with no problem. I'm still alive. Someone mentioned that if you use Head N Shoulders or dandruff shampoo while baking soda is still in your hair, there could be a bad reaction.
If you haven't dyed your hair yet, do a strand test and test this out before doing all of your hair. I'm only sharing that my experience was extremely positive when I did this and I can't see why it wouldn't work for everyone. That said, just because it worked so well for me and didn't damage my hair DOES NOT mean it will be the same for you. You are doing this at your own risk and keep that in mind. There are definitely other ways of getting koolaid out of hair. You don't necessarily have to do it this way if you don't think it's a good idea.
