If you can't convince them, confuse them.

Someone I went to school with used koolaid to dye her hair pink.. she had way beyond shoulder length, light blond hair and it stayed pink with very little fading until it grew out.

Finally something i know about.

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!

-jill

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."

I don't think it's so disturbing, people dye wool with food items all the time! See onions, blackberries, tea... lots of things can be used to dye hair of all kinds. In fact, these natural dyes were the very first.

That's not to say Kool-Aid is good for you... I have no idea what exactly is in the stuff. I'm just saying that we eat things all the time that are capable of dyeing our hair  Wink
