How to dye your hair with Kool-Aid
Type: Hacks and remixes, Other
My 9-year old daughter is off to camp tomorrow and, being a part of the Green Team, needed all things green…including her hair. And since we weren’t quite ready for a $40 dye job, she researched temporary dyeing and came up with this idea.
She mixed 5 packages of lemon-lime Kool-Aid (choose your favorite flavor) with about 8 ounces of water in two small bowls. The less water, the deeper the color. She then put her hair into pig tails, dipped the two ends in the bowls for 5 minutes, then rinsed them in the same two bowls filled with clean water. She then wrapped the pig tail ends in tin foil (apparently she’s spent too much time in beauty salons), waited 5 more minutes, then unwrapped and combed out her hair. Even after washing and conditioning, the hair stayed dyed. Will see how long it lasts.
Seems like a fairly harmless way of adding a little flair to your hair for special events or spirit weeks.
Oh yeah, this is more about the tool I used to share this event than it is about the event. If you haven’t tried Thinglink, what are you waiting for? You can sign up for a free account through Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or email. With this tool you can create interactive stories based on a single background image. You can then add text, pictures, videos, and sound files. Once your Thinglink is published, you can share it to various social media outlets. There are a variety of customizations you can make, such as size, shape and color of the media buttons.
Thinkglink would be a great resource for students who have finished a novel or non-fiction text. Thinglink could also be used as an interactive resource for the ever-popular, static three-panel science fair display boards. How else could you use Thinglink?
Thinglink is available on iOS, Android and the web.
