Kool-Aid Dip Dyeing

Nov 14, 2012

Love the look of dip-dyed hair and want to try it yourself? Mom won't let you dye your hair? This is a temporary solution that's easy to do and much less of a commitment than actually dyeing it at the salon -- just get a parent's permission before you try. It lasts 4-8 weeks with regular washing. Many celebrity icons have embraced the dip-dyed look. Most notably,you've seen Christina Aguilera's blue tips on The Voice, and on just about half the girls in any given Middle School or High School homeroom. 

Check out this YouTube video and then check the supplies list, what to do steps and stuff you need to know before trying it yourself!

 

 

Supplies:

  • 1 packet of sugar-free Kool-Aid
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 saucepan
  • 1 pot holder
  • 1 heat-proof spoon
  • 1 container
  • 1 towel
  • paper towels

Instructions:

  1. Boil the water in a saucepan. Holding the pan with an oven mitt, carefully pour the boiling water into the container. Mix the Kool-Aid into the container and let it cool for 2 minutes.
  2. Drape a towel over your shoulders and find a comfortable position where you can dip the ends of your hair into the mixture and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Carefully remove your hair from the bowl and blot it lightly with a paper towel, just enough to remove the drips -- don't rub! Don't let the dye drip anywhere but the towel because it will stain.
  4. Let your hair dry naturally.

Things You Should Know 

With regular washing and conditioning, the dip-dye will last 4-8 weeks. If your hair is damaged by sun or chlorine, it will last longer. The color will change and fade over the weeks. If you want to remove the dye more quickly, wash your hair 4-5 times in a shampoo made to remove chlorine or build-up from hair or use a very strongv and inexpensive shampoo like VO5. If you have darker hair, it may show up only as highlights.

1: A. It'd be rude to neglect her; I'm also a nerd, though, so no big deal at all. 2: A. I'm shy anyways, and most of the popular gals at my school are repulsive with how narcissistic they are o.o 3: Uh, my friends wouldn't bully a random second grader girl, but if they were, I'd tell them to stop. She's just a second grader, and she doesn't need to have real low self-esteem already, or ever! I do notice younger children tend to be way more sensitive than older ones, so I'd make sure she's okay afterwards. That'd be so sad if a second grader really was being bullied tho ;-;

In the part where you said they started bullying you... what were some of the things they specifically said? If they were just calling you insensitive or racist, tell them it was an accident. You can apologize about the racist comment. If you show you really are sad about it, they'll know you mean it. I hope everything goes well and gets better ^-^
