Here is instructions on a couple of ways to create cool dyed hair using inexpensive products:
Things You’ll Need:
Hair-dye application brush
1)Apply petroleum jelly to the areas of face near your hairline. This creates a barrier so the dye does not drip and dye your face.
2)Mix three packages of unsweetened Kool-Aid or a box of Jell-O into a bowl with a couple drops of water. Sweetened Kool-Aid or Jell-O results in sticky hair. Add a couple drops of conditioner to the mixture, and stir it together. The mixture should be more of a paste than a liquid. Use a Kool-Aid or Jell-O flavor that matches the desired color of hair. For example, “Lime” flavored Kool-Aid or Jell-O tends to be green, dyeing the hair green, “Cherry” flavored Kool-Aid or Jell-O tends to be red, dyeing the hair red, and “Grape” flavored Kool-Aid or Jell-O tends to be purple, dyeing the hair purple.
3)Use a hair dyeing application brush to work the dye onto the hair. Put a shower cap over your head and leave the mixture on the hair overnight. Remove the shower cap, shampoo and condition your hair and let it dry.

So cool! Thanks Emily!
