My daughter wanted to color the ends of her hair for the last week of school. The Kool-aid created a very pretty ombre look!


  • 2-3 packets of Kool-aid
  • 6-8 cups water
  • pot or bowl
  • old towel


  1. Put water in a pot or bowl. Add Kool-aid packets, stirring to combine well.
  2. Wrap towel around shoulders and sit on something that allows your hair to hang into the Kool-aid mixture.
  3. Put as much of your hair into the mixture as you want, and let sit for 45-60 minutes. The longer it soaks, the brighter the color will be.
  4. Squeeze out excess liquid, then rinse hair thoroughly. Continue rising until water runs clear. Then dry hair.
