Yeah, yeah, yeah. . . . it's been over a year since I last posted. I know. But, life has a way of getting in the way. You know? Actually, my kids had decided that they had had enough of mommy spending time blogging. They both asked me to stop spending so much time doing it. So, I took a year's break. But, life couldn't keep me away from blogging forever. It's just too much fun.
So. . . . . .last year I found all of those cute pictures on Pinterest of people who had dyed their hair with Koolaid. Some people said it worked. Some people said it didn't. I'm hear to tell you that it worked. . . . for me. In fact, there is still a faint little bit of pink left in my hair to this day. And I did it at the tippy-tippy end of May last year when my friends and I were going to run the Warrior Dash. So, that's what. . . . . almost 9 months now? I think the trick was using vinegar with it and leaving it on overnight.
Here's the picture of what my hair looked like the day after I dyed it.
It has actually faded A LOT since then. But, it is still light pink and people still notice it sometimes.
I've gotten lots of compliments on it. It was well worth the couple cents for the koolaid packets. In case you were wondering, I think I used grape and one of the light pink colors (I'm not sure which flavor.) I kept mixing different drink packs until I got a color I liked. The light pink ones weren't dark enough in the beginning, which is why I ended up adding grape. I just mixed it with a little bit of conditioner and a little vinegar. I put it on my hair where I wanted the color and wrapped it with aluminum foil. Then I put a shower cap on my head and slept in it!
The next day, I shampooed it out.
Have you ever tried coloring your hair with drink mixes?
