anyone tried it?
i know it sounds dumb, but has this been posted before? my cousin told me when he was in high school, his friends would dye their hair with kool aid. i was wondering if it really shows up on black asian hair rather than blonde. does anyone know the pros & cons?

i found this link on a brunette kid who tried it:

i don't think food coloring has ability to dye your hair... but damn why would you do that? Buy some actual hair dyes, mini cooper!

My friends did it .. haha; it looked pretty cool though =)

The thing about dying your hair w/ Koolaid is that it's temp. so you can wash it

out at the end of the day, because color hairspray makes your hair really hard

and looks "fake". Koolaid looks a lil better in my opinion.

My friend told me how to do it once but I forgot ... lol.

That's pretty clever actually if it's permanant haha.

It's better than real hair dye that damages your hair.

I've always wanted to! Alas, I would have to bleach my black hair.. no can do. Kool Aid will give you really bright colors.

i've tried it before...when i was in middle school.

if your hair is really dark then you wouldn't really see the difference.

if you have lighter hair then you can see the color...be careful cause it's different on everybody.

red looks nice with brown hair.

some people who have black hair go with purple and blue.

the blondes avoid the green and use the orange/red.

it really depends on who is using it.

it's temporary and the intensity of the color depends on

how much you put and how long you leave it on.

another thing is, it sometimes colors the back of your neck

your hands, your cheek...yeah...

Why someone would do that is beyond me.

It would cause a stench or smell hanging around the air around you and it'd be too easy to remove. It probably doesn't even look like it's dyed with black or brown hair. It'd probably stick to your clothes if you have long hair as well.

Yes, I hate Kool-Aid.

Yes... I tried this when I was like 9? I wanted to make 2 strands of my hair blue (I was 9.) I used blue Kool-aid, but since my hair was blonde it turned green.

I thought I was cool.... sigh.
