Kool-Aid Rinse on Natural Hair

When I was in college, I would do Kool-Aid or Flavoraid rinses on my permed hair. The end result was a redish brown tint. My natural hair color is jet black. So, now that I am a natural I wanted to see how it would come out.

  The Flavoraid powder used to be the best one to use because the powder was much finer and would stick to your hair better.

Here's what I used:



Unsweetened Packs
Things You Need:
The amount of packs for each flavor that you use depends on the color you're trying to achieve.
I usually add more grape if I want my hair to have more of a reddish brown color with the Punch

1 pack of orange
2 packs of grape
2 packs of punch (red)
Shampoo, Conditioner, Leave-In Conditioner
Gloves
Butterfly Clips
Comb

Make sure you get the Unsweetened Packs!

I added a little bit of water to the bowl. Be sure not to add too much water, like I did in the picture :-( lol The mixture should be more like a paste... more powder than water. Mix until smooth.


It smells better than it looks lol



After putting on my gloves, I dipped my hands in the bowl and scooped out the mixture and rubbed it on my hair. I left it on for 5 to 10 minutes, rinsed, shampooed my hair, and applied a leave-in conditioner.
(If you are going to try this, remember that it is a rinse. When you shampoo your hair, it's normal to see a lot
of the color in the sink).



After deep conditioning my hair, I finger coiled my hair (not pictured).
