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
Butterfly Clips

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).


  1. Shut UP! I've never heard of this! I'm going to the store right now to buy flavoraid. My husband is probably going to shake his head in confusion. Whatevs.

  2. hey hey
    would appreciate if you followed my blog
    lots of love !!

  3. LOL@ Charish! Yes, that is going to mess his head all up lol. But, he will be ok. I remember the Kool-aid rinse was the thing to do in high school. But, I didn't try it until later on.
