Fill the disposable cup with hot water.

Pour the food coloring into the hot water until you get the desired color you want for her hair. Putting more drops in gives the color a deeper hue.

Dip Barbie's hair in the water (be careful not to dip her head in) and hold for 30 seconds in order to give the hair a good coat.

Rinse her hair under the faucet to wash out any excess food coloring.

After rinsing, set the Barbie down to dry on paper towels for 30 minutes.

Things You Will Need
