Over the summer, I was over a friend's house when I spotted her daughter sporting a new set of colorful strands of hair. As it turns out, little miss Bailey Zelnick got crafty in the kitchen instead of the beauty parlor to add accent to her locks. She shared the beauty "How To" with me, as a great way to switch up your normal hairstyle without diving into the world of permanent hair color.
- Pick out your favorite colors of unsweetened Kool-Aid.
- Bring water to a boil. Use two cups of water for every quarter cup of Kool Aid.
- Add the Kool Aid to the boiling water. The color should be vibrant.
- Pout the combination into a ceramic bowl so it holds the heat.
- Portion off the section of your hair you want to dye, and dip it in the water.
- Let it sit for 10 to 12 minutes if you're a blonde, longer if you're a brunette.
Just a note - the color can last for up to three months if you're a blonde, one to two if you're a brunette. I love, love, love this idea as a temporary but safe way to color your hair. I'm often so indecisive about color, but knowing I could transform the tips of my tresses at home for a short period of time is quite tempting! Will you try it? Tweet me a pic if you do!
