I have really blonde hair and have never dyed it before. I thought it would be fun to put a red streak in my hair for the summer. Internet how to's said that the dye should come out in two to three washes. Now that summer is almost over I've tried everything to try and get it out. Baking soda, dishsoap, head and shoulders, laundry detergent, I even tried household bleach! Nothing has worked!! PLEASE HELP

Why not just get some haircolor the same color as your hair. Get one of those root touch up things and then you won't have a lot of hair color left over.

Red Kool Aid on blonde? That is very hard to get out, as you already know However, you can try peroxide. Not the kind you put on cuts, the kind in developer.

Go to a beauty supply store, a Sally's if you have one. Then use about an ounce of 20 Volume developer and mix it with a clear or white shampoo, just a little shampoo though. Then put it only on the part that has the Kool Aid on it. Let is sit for about 5 to 10 min. Then rinse out all the way.

Make sure it's 20 volume, not 10. 10 is deposit only. 20 is for lifting.

Also make sure your hair has no other chemicals on it. I read that you put some other chemicals on it, so make sure it's free from that.

Good Luck.

I have very blonde hair too. I dyed it with my friends about a month ago and now my parents really want me to get it out. And what sucks even more is that if I go to bed with wet hair my white sheets turn pink and one of my white T-shirts turned pink too! When I was dying my hair my friends said that it would last about 2 WEEKS, but it would possibly be longer because my hair is so light. So it has been way longer than I expected and I was wondering if there was a shampoo thing I could buy at Sally's.

My hair is blonde and I dyed it with red kool-aid last October. It is now March, and it is still in there just not as intense. That is about 5 months, several washings, and a coloring with hair dye that it has survived. I wish I could figure out how to get it out too! Sigh. I hope someone figures it out.

My advice... next time keep the kool-aid in your drink not in your hair...

I just dyed my hair too and then decided I didn't like the color so I decided to take a combination of peoples ideas and I found mine works AMAZING! Take a cup run EXTREAMLY hot water then fill the cup to the top then take the strand of hair and soak it in it until you see the color of the dye turn the water but I find it most helpful to put dish soap in the water it helps more than just the hot water!

I forgot to say just keep reapeating this step until its all gone it won't take just one time it might take many... when you dye your hair with Kool Aid its just basically sitting on your hair so that's why this hot water makes it come off better

I have had Kool-aid in my hair for over a year now, and it's still there. I've tried washing with dawn dish doap, baking soda, I've dyed it almost black, nothing works. If you decide to do your hair with Kool-aid, only soak it for like, 5-10 minutes. Then it won't last as long. But I soaked mine for like 45 minutes, and my hair is dark brown, and it's not budging to come out. So, I wouldn't recommend doing it!

I tried everything too, but found out that putting your hair in hot baking soda can start removing the Kool Aid. It'll take a couple times but in the end the color will start fading.

LOL I don't know how you could safely get your hair into boiling water? But in theory it could help because the hot water would open the cuticle and then if you washed or soaked it in dawn dishwashing liquid or a clarifying shampoo it might pull out some of the color. I've seen soaking hair extensions in super hot water mixed with dawn for 30 minutes lift out quite a bit of color if it's done not too long after the color is applied. Sorry, I don't know if this helps :)

Swimming in a chlorine pool for about 1-3 hours and it should fade a bit. This is what I did to help get mine out.

Try swimming in a chlorine pool for 1-3 hours. This will help a bit to fade it or possibly take it out. I tried this to help get mine out and it faded it quit a bit.

To get Kool-Aid out of your hair you use this mixture...
1 Egg
1/4 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of Mayo
1 squirt of Toothpaste
1/2 Cup of Hydrogen Peroxide

Mix it all together,
Work into your hair,
And cover the hair with a shower cap for 1 and 1/2 hours

Hope it works for you guys!

THIS DOES WORK!

*boil water and put in in a bowl.
*soak your hair in the water for 5 minutes.
*boil more water and add dish soap and baking soda.
*soak you hair in it for 5 minutes.
*rinse and wash your hair with dish soap.
*and then condition your hair with conditioner.

Do this a few times like one or twice a day

I did the same thing I dyed the ends of my hair red for the summer with my friend the internet how to's said about 2 weeks its now been over a month and I wanted it out for school picture day I did some research and I made my own solution; fill a mug halfway with water and the other half hydrogen peroxide (warning hydrogen peroxide will burn your hands so wear gloves) then add about a tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of dish washing liquid. Add some conditioner to the mixture (dandruf conditioner works better) now mix it up with a plastic spoon. (WARNING do not use metal, the hydrogen peroxide will wreck it) now dip the dyed hair in it and let it soak for 5 minutes then leave your hair dripping wet and wrap it up in plastic wrap and secure it with an elastic now sleep with it like this and in the morning have a shower and unwrap your hair you will see the water turning red do this every night until its gone. Hope this helps.

Guys, I have heard that toothpaste work really well, you have to go to shower and take a toothpaste with you and when your hair is all wet then use the toothpaste like conditioner in the area with the kool-aid and then wait for a while and then wash it off in the shower, I have heard that it works really well, good luck! ;)

I got super blonde hair and dyed my hair with red Kool Aid. Shouldn't have done it. Worse, I boiled the Kool Aid so it's going to stay in even longer. :(

Sep 16, 2012, 06:27 PM
No!! Never, ever, ever put peroxide in your hair. Any kind of peroxide that u put in your hair will burn your hair then it will fall off and u can end up going bald. Never use hydrogen peroxide.

My white pitbull managed to dump one of those 5 gallon drink dispensers full of cherry koolaid on himself and then lay in it until I came home. Any advise on how to get him white again? Or at least not Double Bubble pink?

It may take a very long time to completely eliminate the color from the Kool Aid, so unless you are willing to have funky colored hair for an indefinite period, just don't do it to begin with.

I did the same thing. I have really light blonde hair and I put Black Cherry in my hair. I wanted it out so bad. I saw somewhere where it said
- boil some water
- pour it into a bowl
- wait about 10 minutes for it to cool down
- soak your hair in the hot water for 5-10 minutes
- after that boil some more water
- after you boil that put it a bowl
- add baking soda and dish soap
- let your hair soak in that for 5-10 minutes
- rise it out with warm water and put some conditioner in your hair

I also have Kool Aid dye stuck in my hair but I have 2 ways that I am going to try. 1) But your hair in white vinger and water to wash it out. I know that it sounds bad, but it worked for my friend. 2) Use baking sode and wash it out:)

All right people I got it out in ONE DAY!! :D here is how I did it (p.s. I have a brown ish blonde hair color and its COMPLETELY NATURAL) kk so anyway I wanted this crap OUT.OF.MY.HAIR. THIS DOSE WORK
*i first took a shower and used pantene pro-v pure and strong strengthening shampoo then the same thing only with conditioner naturefusion and washed my hair TWICE WITH IT
*then filled my bathroom sink up with HOT water and before soking it I scrubed AND I DO MEAN SCRUBED head and shoulders dandruff shampoo and conditioner green apple let it sit for 2 min. with it wet already then soked it in the HOT WATER got OUT THE SHAMPOO n' stuff outa my hair.
*HOWEVER this is NOT GOING TO get it ALL out it will only lighten it up after that I let it dry out a little bit till it was only damp then I got out a pan with only A LITTLE BIT OF dawn ultra with olay hand renewal dishsoap then I put a little bit of oxi-clean in the pan of hot water then I put my hair in a pony tail and turned the fire on after setting the pan on the stove I also set the timer on for 10 min. and set my hair in the pan until the 10 min. were up also swish your hair around a bit I helps move it around while soking it in the water after the 10 min. were up it was OUT I am currently jumping for joy the only down side your hair WILL most likely SMELL so re wash it after wards enjoy your reagular old hair back hope this will help p.s. YES my hair was back to its origanal hair color I am just bursting with happiness!!

STOPPPP!! No boiling water for crying out loud! My daughter did the same thing, we ended up just buying a hair dye close to her color and even though the places where the koolaid is, is darker, it looks pretty good! The easiest and safest solution!

We used Oxi Clean and it worked! The water must be very hot. I put a half a mug of water in the microwave for 90 seconds and added a generous teaspoon of OxiClean. It bubbles like crazy and I had to immediately pour it into a bigger bowl. Soaked her hair for 5-10 minutes. You will see color coming out in foam within 2-3 minutes. The water turned red and I was going to rinse her hair and repeat but didn't need to. I had her wash and condition.

Nothing works I have tried everything to get mine out! I have dirty blonde hair and I dyed my tips with grape Kool Aid at the beginning of summer and then a few weeks later it turned red. I have tried every home remedy there is and nothing will come out!! The only thing I can think of doing anymore is cutting my hair but I really don't want to do that! HELP!
