Hon! Have some confidence in yourself! I have never once seen anyone say, "wow, you really didn't do that very well did you" on here, so don't worry! So maybe you would have liked them to look "perfect". If you wanted something to look "perfect" and seamless then buy it at the store. I love them and am really impressed at the detail you went to even make them solvable! You made these, and that is awesome. Be proud of yourself!
This is such a fun thread! I recently have started buying some non-typical food item each week just to try it out and see what i like, so this gives me all sorts of ideas. Oh there are so many wonderful foods out there that are just waiting for us to try.
I think the craziest thing i have ever eaten was a "crocodile burger" in Costa Rica that i didn't know was real crocodile until i was about half-way done with it! it wasn't bad though, just a burger...
My favorite so far though is duck. I wholeheartedly recommend it, holy smokes, with some sort of fruity glaze, mmmmm...
in high school i dyed my hair a couple times with koolaid (grape and cherry). my hair is dark brown so it wasn't real noticeable in regular light, but in the sun, it was awesome.
first off, make sure your get the sugarless/unsweetened kind....you'll be a lot less sticky and less carmely...
i saw that someone already mentioned putting vinegar in - i never had a problem with it fading without, but it probably would be a good idea if you were concerned about that. the thing with koolaid is that it is really hard to get your roots because you kinda have to do a backbend into nearly boiling water for 15 min. (i did it for about that long, i assume that is pretty variable depending on how vibrant you want it). Thus, i just would dye my ponytail and anything else that i could get in.
Anyways, after you do that, blowdry your hair with the juice in it to lock the color. then leave it in for pretty much as long as you can. Wash your hair as usual, you may have to clean your shower afterwards....but voila! beautiful, WONDERFUL SMELLING hair!
oh, i was checking out online and typed into google "koolaid hair dye" and there were a ton of sites on it. i found one other way that people seem to say works, although i've never tried it. here it is.
"READ ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE ATTEMPTING. I WILL LAUGH AT YOU IF YOU DON'T. Okay, some of you are right on it, and some of you are just crazy. You have to mix conditioner with Kool-Aid UNSWEETENED mix. I assure you, if you use sweetened, you're hair will be a disaster! You need about 2 times as much conditioner as you would need if you were to condition your hair. Put it in a bowl. Then, put 2 UNSWEETENED (sugar-free) packets of Kool-Aid (color is your choice) in the bowl, and mix well. You might want to wear clothes you don't mind getting messed up, so that if anything drips on them, you don't have to freak out. Put on rubber gloves and massage the mixture into your hair. Pile the hair on your head, and wrap in plastic wrap. The longer you leave it there, the longer the color will last. If you have dark hair, you will need to bleach it first to get any noticeable change. If you have red hair, this may not work at all, because red hair is hard to dye. Once you have sat as long as you can stand with the Kool-Aid in your hair, take off the plastic wrap and rinse your hair until the water runs clear. DO NOT stand in the shower to rinse your hair. Lean over the side of the bathtub and put your head under the water. If you have a detachable shower head, use that. If you stand up, the color will run down onto your body, and leave you stained. It comes out with a good scrubbing, but you would rather not have to deal with it, trust me. Once you're done, you can go about showering as normal. Hope I've helped."
Wow, i came across this thread right at the perfect time. Could you pm me with the address? I should have plenty of time to make these! This is such a wonderful cause, and this is just another reason why the internet is a blessing. Thank you for doing this, I can't believe how much recieving these packages must mean to someone.
so it's sort of like if your boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't live in the same town and you miss them kind of swap? lol sorry i was just making sure
oh yeah...sorry, this is kinda cryptic. this would be for those of us who are in long distance relationships. either from military service, or frequent buisness trips, a mission, or a trip, or anything.
