I wanted to use Kool Aid Pink Lemonade this time around, so I went to Safeway to buy it but that flavor wasn't available, so I bought Crystal Light Pink Lemonade instead. BAD IDEA and I'll tell you why. I didn't realize until I was done applying and then touched my neck and thought "this is weird why is my neck sticky." Crystal Light has natural sweetener which results in stickiness when dried as opposed to single packet kool aid which is unsweetened. Opt for unsweetened if you can. I found out later in the week when I visited Target that Target carries Kool Aid in pink lemonade. Woops too late.
1. The box of Crystal Light was $2.99 for 10 packets. In my mixture I used 7 packets, a packet of Kool Aid strawberry that I found left over from last time, a couple pinches of Kool Aid grape (which didn't seem to show up at all), a few drops of neon pink food coloring, a little bit of water, and conditioner and mixed it all together. And don't forget gloves!
2. Applied it on my hair and combed through it to make sure I got everywhere. Then I clipped it up and put on a shower cap, then laid a towel out on my pillow and slept on it.
3. Washed it out in the morning, and voila! I would suggest just rinsing it out and not shampooing right away.
I was going to talk more but this is a relatively text heavy post so there you go. It's just past 10pm but it feels so late because I've been waking up at 5am since Saturday so I wouldn't miss the gymnastics event finals as they stream live. There's lots of events tomorrow so I have to wake up at 5 again and probably go to sleep now.
