There is a fast way to dye your hair with koolaid and there's also a slow way. The slow way takes at least 6-8 hours. The fast way takes about 30 minutes. I'll tell you how to dye your hair with koolaid fast.
You'll need to be okay with dip-dying your hair. You could dye all of your hair instead of just dip-dying, but it would probably be too messy. Dip-dying is the best way to dye your hair fast.
Supplies you'll need:
- A packet or two of unsweetened koolaid (how many you need depends on how thick your hair is)
- A dark plastic cup or a disposable plastic cup
- A dark towel or old wash cloth
- Old clothes
- Warm water
Before you start, if you have any concerns about not being able to get the koolaid out of your hair, you should do a strand test first. Dye only a small area of hair and then use this method to get the koolaid out. If it comes out, then you're good.
If you have brown hair or dark hair, it may not show up as well.
Prepare the koolaid mixture
Turn on the water and let it get warm. Some people use boiling water. You don't have to do that. All boiling water does is it gets the koolaid to soak deeper into your hair which might make it harder to get out later. Just use warm water because it does just as good of a job. So fill the cup 3/4 with warm water. Take your koolaid packet(s) and pour them into the cup. Stir. Now you have your mixture.
Prepare to dip-dye your hair
Before you begin, place your dark-colored towel by the sink. You'll probably want to sit for this, since it takes 30 minutes. You will also probably want something to do like reading or browsing the internet. Your head mobility will be limited during this time, so keep that in mind. Put on some old clothes and sit down at a table. Place your cup in front of you. Put your hair in a ponytail and dip your hair into the cup. Dip as much as you want to dye. If your table is low, you might want to put your cup on top of some sturdy books. Be careful though. If you spill koolaid, it will stain everything. Leave the hair dipped for 30 minutes.
How to rinse the koolaid out
Once the 30 minutes is over, carefully walk to the sink with your cup. Don't spill it. Rinse your hair out until the water is clear. Don't shampoo it. Just make sure you get all the koolaid out. You should have a dark-colored or old towel sitting conveniently by the sink. Wrap your hair in it until it dries.
Once your hair is dry, it should look awesome.
