homemade hair dye - Freaky Styly





Homemade hair dye

Kool aid natural hair dye


The infamous Kool-Aid, not only good to drink and seriously colorful but also very useful as a homemade hair color


What do you need:

  • Packet of unsweetened Kool aid (depending on the length of your hair and how strong you want it)
  • 1 tablespoon Corn starch or some drops of natural hair conditioner


How to do it:

Mix the appropriate amount of Kool aid in a bowl; use the unsweetened kind not to get sticky hair. Remember you can also mix colors to get fascinating off the grid results…but we didn’t say that in case somebody asks…

Add a few drops of water to make a paste, don’t make it too watery. Then mix in the corn starch or some drops of hair conditioner so you can apply it more easily. Stir well to make a smooth lump less paste


Before you start put some petroleum jelly on the skin around your hairline and especially your ears; this will make it easier to wash leaking colors off

Now the fun begins! Apply the color paste into your hair, cover from root to end and massage it into your hair not your scalp; you might need some help with this

Wrap your hair in plastic shrink wrap to avoid leakage and secure it with tape. This will keep the stuff in your hair…and not on your pillow because you’ll have to leave it in overnight


Sleep on it and dream nice, happy and colorful dreams to boost the whole coloring process…well we hope it does anyway

In the morning take off the wrap and be very surprised by the results. Now wash your hair thoroughly, put in conditioner and wash it again

Take a comb through your hair and let it dry to settle, the color will be less obvious when your hair is dry


Tip: the lighter the color of your hair, the brighter the results. However if you are a brunette don't add lighter colors, it could make your hair turn gray-ish and quiet ugly frankly, but that’s an opinion not a fact. If you have darker hair you could slightly bleach it with hydrogen-peroxide, careful with the strength and quantities!





Homemade hair dye

Food coloring natural hair dye


Another homemade hair color option is natural food coloring. Liquid or powdered, the ones to color drinks, icing, cakes etc


What do you need:

  • Food coloring of choice
  • Shampoo


How to do it:

Pour the food color of choice in an empty shampoo bottle. Remember you can also mix colors to get some wild and interesting results. Add some shampoo (not too much) to make it easier to apply. Shake to mix it all well

Before you start put some petroleum jelly on the skin around your hairline and especially your ears; this will make it easier to wash leaking colors off

Now the fun stuff; wet your hair and apply the color shampoo into your hair. Cover from root to end and massage it into your hair not your scalp; you might need some help with this. If you have blond, light or bleached hair leave it in for about 30 minutes. For darker hair it obviously takes a bit longer, about 1 to 1.5 hour

Sit down, read your favorite magazine or book and think nice, happy and colorful thoughts

Then rinse it out with lukewarm water

Take a comb through your hair and let it dry to settle, the color will be less obvious when your hair is dry

Well there you go, have fun and enjoy your new colorful hair… and life style


Tip: same as above, the lighter your hair color the brighter the results. However if you are a brunette don't add lighter colors, it could make your hair turn gray-ish and quiet ugly frankly, but again, that’s an opinion not a fact. If you have darker hair you could slightly bleach it with hydrogen-peroxide, careful with the strength and quantities!



Final note

Because  of radical results and or possible allergic reactions, always try and see how your body reacts to the separate ingredients you use

Do a patch test first before making your own homemade hair dye to ensure you don't have any allergic reactions
