I need to dye my hair temporarily, but I don't have any hair dye. I need a method that safe and works on different colors and lengths of hair (I have friends who need to dye their hair too). I would also like the method to be quick and also easy to wash out. Bonus points for a method that can have different colors.
Directions 1. Be very sure to use UNSWEETENED. 2. Mix one packet of Kool-Aid with the water in a pot. 3. Heat until boiling, stirring. 4. Remove from heat and cool to a temperature that is warm but not hot. 5. Dip as much hair as possible into the mix. 6. Then, with your head over the pot, ladle the kool-aid over the hair.
Use a different pot with different color, and carefully dye with the other color. If your hair is long enough, use a pony tail so you can separate the colors more easily.
It lasts a couple of weeks, depending on how often you wash your hair. You can speed it up by soaking it in a solution of baking soda and vinegar.
Temporary Hair Colour Spray
You can consider using the temporary hair color spray, they are availble in many colours in the many online stores such as Amazon, eBay, walmart, etc and they are washable. :)
They are pretty cheap and easy to use as compared to the permenent hair dye.

I have a few home remedies.
- You can use beetroot juice to give your hair a nice reddish tinge.
- Applying a coffee mix helps to darken your hair.
- Henna gives your hair a nice mahogany shade (henna comes in different shades so you better have a look at the label before purchasing some. )
p.s: The effectiveness of the above mentioned home remedies vary with the natural shade of your hair. The lighter your hair colour is, the more effective the remedies are.
