Transcript of Which one is Better, Kool-Aid or Hair Dye?

Which One Works best; Kool-Aid or L'Oreal Hair Dye? Purpose:The purpose of this project is to discover which of the two is a better hair dye is; Kool-Aid or L’ Oreal hair-dye. Hair is delicate and so it has to be handle properly that is why we want determine which one is best to dye hair with less damage, Kool-Aid or hair-dye.

Procedure:In order to complete this project, we had to gather all of our supplies which were three Human hair wigs (or a strip of human hair but it has to be able to be split in two even sides. If have wigs the heads of the wigs is required for each wig.),six packets of sugar free cherry Kool-Aid, one kit of color red of L’Oreal, plastic wrap, one small pot, one small container enough to hold 24oz,1 towel, and finally paintbrushes. We dyed only half of each wig with the L'Oreal hair dye; we did this with all three wigs. To get the mixture for the dye you must follow the directions that are inside the L’Oreal kit. Next we dyed the other half of each wig with Kool-Aid. In order to dye the other half of each wig with Kool-Aid we were needed to boil the six packets mixed with water. Let the mixture cool off for ten minutes. Then we took the hair that we wanted to dyed, and dip it into the Kool-Aid for ten minutes. We did this for all three wigs. Afterwards we wrapped the dyed hair with plastic and let it stand for six hours.

Conclusion In the end, we found that even though the L’Oreal hair dye was invented especial in dying hair, the Kool-Aid had a better effect than the dye. The side of the wigs that were dyed with the normal hair dye ended up being hard tangled and had already started to create spilt ends, while the side of the wig with the Kool-Aide dye was soft and not as tangled as the other side. It was brighter in color than the actual L’Oreal dye and there were no sights of spilt ends. Abstract Potential hazards associated with the experiment are that the hair dye contains peroxide and other chemicals that can be hazards if contact with skin. The hair dye is flammable and dangerous if inhaled, has any contacted with eyes or swallowed. If the dye has any contact with eyes rinse thoroughly with warm water for 15 minutes. Keep the clear plastic wrap away from children or babies to avoid suffocation. You will need a parent or guardian to assist you in using the stove to avoid being burn.
Precautions taken during this experiment are to wear gloves, a mask cover your nose and mouth, and have hair tied back making sure it does not come in contact with chemicals. Gloves are necessary to avoid getting any of the dye on your hands. The mask should be worn so you are safe from inhaling the chemicals of the dye. All loose hair should be tied back to avoid getting any dye on your hair. Safety
The purpose of this experiment is to gain more knowledge on hair dyeing and to discover what product works best interest causing less hair damage when being dyed.

Based on our research, we believe Kool-Aid will work better to dye hair than with regular hair dye because in our research it says that hair dye can cause split ends, dryness, and cause the hair to feel rough. While our research on Kool-Aid it did not report that it is harmful for the hair because its main ingredient in hair dying or dying any fabric is its high concentration of food coloring which has been reported that it has no damage on hair.

Control & Variables:
•The control for the experiment will be the amount of hair dye and Kool-Aid we will be using and the color of the wigs that are all the same color.
•The independent variable is the amount of Kool-Aid we will be using and the amount of L’Oreal hair-dye.
•The dependent variable is the reactions the wigs will have to the hair dye whether positive or negative. Purpose & Hypothesis •Over 75% of women are dyeing their hair and a growing percent of men coloring their hair is following the women’s percent.

•Dying hair was first started in ancient Greek. People that were consider heroes would have their hair cleaned with harsh soaps that bleaches and leaves the hair with a reddish color that represented honor and bravery.

•The real actual hair dye wasn’t invented until the early 1900’s by a French chemist Eugene Schuller. His invention started off the company L’Oreal

• Every hair has three layers—the inner fibers make up the medulla; the cortex surrounds the medulla; and the cuticle is the outer layer that protects the inner the more sensitive components from damage.

•There are two main ingredients for hair dye; Hydrogen peroxide and Ammonia. Hydrogen peroxide is used for strengthen the new color throughout the process and helps the color to last longer. Ammonia is intended for separating the cuticle to allow the new color to penetrate the cortex of the hair, changing the color of the hair to the dye

•The first Kool-Aid in 1927 was liquid refreshment and it was named “Fruit Smack.”

•Kool-Aid is the official soft-drink of Nebraska.

•Kool-Aid is high concentration of food coloring, and because of the high concentration of food coloring Kool-Aid is not just used as a beverage, it is also used for dying fabric and even hair.

•There are 2 best methods for dyeing your hair with Kool-Aid

•One called the dip and dye and another named the paste and paint Literature Review

Methods of Procedures
1.Gather all materials.

2.Set up the wigs with a towel underneath (with their proper equipment; the wigs should be on the “heads”). If using strips of hair place the 3 strips on the towel on a flat surface area.

3.Split the wig (or strip) into 2 even parts. Use a bobby pin or hair tie to separate each side. Do this to all the wigs.

4.Label each wig with letters or numbers.

5.First use the L’Oreal hair dye. Put on gloves, mask, and hair should be tied. (The following instructions are inside the kit of the box of L’Oreal) You will be doing the colored in green for all wigs
but ONLY 1 of the sections of the wig. In other words you are dying half of the wig with the L’Oreal dye.

6.Snip off tip on the cream color applicator, then remove applicator from bottle

7.Pour all of the ammonia-free colorant into the developer bottle

8.Replace applicator cap securely. Place gloved finger over open tip, pointing away from your face. Shake until the mixture is blended

9.Use applicator tip to make 0.65 centimeters partings through the rest of the section and apply mixture at the top area of each part to all wigs but only half of the wig.

10.Do not rub the mixture

11.Comb remaining mixture through the rest of the wig, saturating hair completely through to the tip

12.Leave on hair for 30 minutes

13. Rinse the parts of the wig that you have dyed with 110 degree water

14.Rinse until all excessive dye is gone

15.Evenly apply entire contents of after-color conditioner packette

16.Leave on for 2 minutes the rinse with warm water at 90-110 Fahrenheit. (you are done with dyeing the parts with L’Oreal you can wait until the hair is dry or blow dry it for faster results)

17. Now dye the other sections with Kool-Aid. Use the dip-dye method. New gloves should be put on if the other was stained, hair should still remain tied, and mask should still be on.

18.Pour all 6 packets of Kool-Aid into the small pot and add about 3-4 cups of water

19.Boil the Kool-Aid until it boils

20.Pour the Kool-Aid into the container you have and let it cool for 10 minutes( Make sure the Kool-Aid is at 90-110 degree Fahrenheit (but not too hot)because the heat is what opens the cuticle for
the dye

21.Place the section of the wig that is untouched into the container of Kool-Aid. Leave there for 10-15 minutes

22.Afterwards wrap the hair with the plastic wrap and permit the wig to stay at least 6 hours wrapped

23.Finally unwrap the hair and you should have half of the wig dyed with L’Oreal dye and the other half with Kool-Aid. Materials & Methods of Procedures
•3 Human hair wigs (or strips of human hair but it has to be able to be split in 2 even sides. If you are using wigs you must have their ‘head’. The heads that are used to demonstrate the wig is what you will need if you decide to use wigs. You need a head for each wig)

•6 packets of sugar free cherry Kool-Aid

•1 kit of color red of L’Oreal

•Plastic wrap

•1 small pot

•1 small container enough to hold 24oz

•1 towel

•1 Paintbrushes

•Bobby pins/ hair tie Materials Procedures Results

L’Oreal Kool-Aid
Texture softness-
Wig A: the texture seems to be softer than before, it does not seem to be frizzy and it is accompany with a nice shine to it.
Wig A: the hair texture feels very soft and it seems to be have a shine to it, no frizziness

Wig B: not that soft as Wig A and has less shine and seems to look dry and a little frizzy Wig B: very soft with a lot of shine no sort of frizz or tangles

Wig C: moist texture that is very soft no puffiness and has a shine to it. Wig C: the hair seems to have some tangles on the points of the hair, it is not moist, seems to be dry, with some sort of a shine.

Wig A: Even though the hair is soft it seems tighten and I find it somewhat dry. No tangles. Wig A: Had no tangles it was not that dry of a texture no spilt ends.

Wig B: It has some tangles with its dry texture and has already created split ends. Wig B: No split ends, no dryness and no tangles

Wig C: This wig seems to be moist with some tangles on the points. No split ends just tangles. Wig C: Only some little tangles on the points were found and the hair seemed to be a little moist.

Color Rate

Wig A: The hair color is a bright red with some darkness parts of brown to it. Color rate: 6 Wig A: Has a darkish red color all around. No dark streaks or light streaks. Color rate:8

Wig B: Has a darker color and the color seems to be reddish with brown color combined all together. Color rate:5. Wig B: Bright red all over. It is a red with a light side to it almost a dark pink. Color rate: 6

Wig C: Not as bright as Wig A not as dark as Wig B. Seems to be red with streaks of a dark red color. Color rate: 8 Wig C: Has a blood color. A very dark red all over. Color rate:9 Results/Data In the conclusion, we found that there are better ways in dying hair, maybe there is another and even better than using Kool-Aid on dying hair. Hair dye is made for dyeing hair but Kool-Aid was made for drinking yet it has other qualities. Kool-Aid became the less damaging compared to regular dye. If we ever every dye our hair in the future we would use Kool-Aid. We learned there are other ways to use things not just one way and that objects such as Kool-Aid. And others objects can be used for different things, not just for what they were created for.

If we were to redo this experiment we would want to change our question into, “which one lasts longer, Kool-Aid or L’Oreal hair dyed” because now that we know which one dyed hair better than the other, we can use the next quality when it comes to hair dyeing, how long the color lasts. We would test this as part 2 in comparing hair dyed and conclude which of the two are best for dying hair. Conclusion Brain, Marshall. "How Hair Coloring Works."
