After watching a video a week or so on FB, of a lady with koolaid dyed hair, it got me thinking... Then the other day, Jilly asked if she could color her hair with the spray crap we got for Halloween...which got me thinking some more.... I hate that spray crap, it gets all over everything. If she wanted some color maybe we should try the koolaid thing, and see how that works. I read some stuff online about doing it, and thought we'd give it a try. Our first set of directions, and the green color she picked, didn't work. So the next day we tried again, with new directions and a different color choice. This time we did Tropical Punch, in other words red (or pinkish depending on how long its left in). Jilly's hair smelled really good :) We got streaks in her hair, and wrapped her head in Saran Wrap. Off she went to play with her latex glove filled with water, that she named Lawrence (weirdo!).
In the mean time, I made dinner. Bree stripped naked, and tried to scotch tape herself, then the cat. We have such a loony bin here.
After dinner, it was Kelsey's turn for koolaid hair dye. She picked blue. We got her streaks in, and off she went. She left hers in over night.
Apparently there are some colors that work better than others. Jilly left her dye in for a few hours, and got some results. Kelsey who left hers in all night, has basically NOTHING. She's pretty bummed. I think the fact that Jilly's hair is practically white, the dye took better then Kelsey's who has a dirty blonde, nearly brown hair color.
Here are some pics of Jilly, can't really see it good from the front in these pics, its a faint pinkish color:
Not to bad for about $.60 worth of Koolaid eh? I'm sure if she left it in longer the results would have been more dramatic. She's happy with it, thats all that matters.
QOTD: Have you ever colored your hair with Koolaid?
