Pink lipstick is pretty great and all, but I have to admit I’ve been especially curious about trends that are completely out of my comfort zone. I’ve been mildly obsessed with mermaid hair for that reason, and any girl who can rock some watercolor hair automatically earns girl crush status in my eyes!
Hey, did you know you can dye your hair with Kool-Aid?
Supplies you’ll need:
1-2 packs of unsweetened Kool-Aid (how many you need depends on how thick your hair is)
A disposable plastic cup
A dark towel
1. Prepare the Kool-Aid mixture
Turn on the water and let it get warm. Fill the cup 3/4 of the way full with warm water. Take your Kool-Aid packet(s) and pour them into the cup. Stir. Now you have your mixture.
2. Prepare to dip-dye your hair
Before you begin, place your dark-colored towel by the sink. You’ll probably want to sit for this, since it takes 30 minutes. Put on some old clothes and sit down at a table. Place your cup in front of you. Put your hair in a ponytail and dip your hair into the cup. Dip as much as you want to dye. If your table is low, you might want to put your cup on top of some sturdy books. Be careful though. If you spill Kool-Aid, it will stain everything. Leave the hair dipped for 30 minutes.
3. How to rinse the Kool-Aid out
Once the 30 minutes is over, carefully walk to the sink with your cup. Don’t spill it. Rinse your hair out until the water is clear. Don’t shampoo it. Just make sure you get all the Kool-Aid out. You should have a dark-colored or old towel sitting conveniently by the sink. Wrap your hair in it until it dries. Once your hair is dry, it should look awesome!
Even if I never go any further than re-pinning some of my favorite mermaid hair pictures on Pinterest I wouldn’t be opposed to some hair chalk experimenting in the near future. Here are some of the dreamiest mermaid hair inspiration I found – What do you think, would you try this trend?
