My question is what can you use if you get hair dye on your skin? Because I used the Dark & Lovely Natural Black hair dye and I had got some on my face,hand and my ears. And was wondering if you had some suggestions on what I could use..

dish soap, scrub hard.

toothpaste works...but make sure you use PASTE and not GEL....it's the granules in the toothpaste that help scrub it off.

I've found that sitting in a steam room or in a really hot sauna sweats it out faster than scrubbing or anything else.

Razors.....see if your scrape all the skin off where the dye is...it all works well.....but then you have the acesss bleeding...but it still works pretty good

Think of hair dye as the tarnish on silver or the green on copper. To get it off, mix the ash from one whole cig with a pea-sized dollop of pump soap (and some bicarbonate of soda if you want abraision). Applied to an old dirty penny, this cleans it in seconds. Now to the hair. Apply this paste to the affected area (your hairline and around the ears, probably) and then scrub hard before thoroughly washing your hair, scrubbing scalp etc. Repeat again if you still see the ring of dye - but no more after this.

If you dye your hair a dark colour it takes about 48 hours for the colour to go from the scalp no matter what but the cig-ash thing will allow you to leave the house on the first night without looking like a freak. Lots of dyed skin exfoliates the next morning when you wash, and it's all gone by hair wash three.

(Steam is good: like I need an excuse to go to a Turkish bath)

Soap and shampoo have always done the trick for me. What doesn't go away by light scrubbing the night I dye it is gone after I take a shower the next morning.

That's for real dyes. The one time I tried Manic Panic I was fucked.

Not much help now, but a tip i picked up when i was a saturday girl in a hair salon, was to rub the tint in into the hairline as you rinse it off, it loosens any tint that's stained the skin and should mean that there's no staining when you've finished rinsing.

leigh (leigh), Monday, 29 March 2004 14:19 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Hairspray should work too and hairdressing suppliers sell stain remover.

leigh (leigh), Monday, 29 March 2004 14:21 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Nail varnish remover can help, but be very careful and don't get it near your eyes.

Anna (Anna), Monday, 29 March 2004 14:38 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

And next time, smear vaseline round yr hairline before commencing.

I'm telling you, go to your gym and sit in the sauna or steam room for a while, take a shower, repeat the cycle a few times, and it will be gone.

Astringent... its wonderful

Jesserta, Thursday, 15 April 2004 00:55 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

well, i was sceptical but the oxy pads worked!!! i used the sensitive ones. i've seen someone try nail varnsih remover and get in their earings...it wasn't good. Go with the pads. Stain remover the best though.

its true...hair dye takes out hair dye.. rub a little bit of that into the stain then rinse right away.. other wise try using the conditioner...i think this works real well with the cheaper stuff... even better, prior to dyeing...lay on a thick layer of conditioner aroud the hair line and neck.. there will be no stainage after you wash.

Van, Saturday, 30 July 2005 06:09 (twelve years ago) Permalink

eh, just use laundry bleach. cheap n easy. dont forget to rinse.

I nearly had a hair dye disaster last night. Rich dark chestnut brown seemed to be turning me into Cuddles the Chimp (IMG SRC="http://www.henderson-management.co.uk/img5.jpg">). I washed it off after three minutes and all is well, but it was a lucky escape!

It is too early for me to think clearly about blue writing and stuff, obviously.

It's my hen night tonight, and I can't remove the hair dye, I used dark brown and now I have black patches everywhere:-((((

I don't want to go out like this, so what's best PLEASE!!!

OK, I tried the bleach works wonders, stinks though, got to get rid of that now:-(

I have done the same at times and what worked for me was good old fashioned javex on a cloth and don't scrub too hard. It bleaches the dye right out.

I second Liz's vaseline tip: if one remembers that then there is no need for all the exfoliation/bleaching.

Mooro (Mooro), Monday, 1 August 2005 09:11 (twelve years ago) Permalink

vaseline tip thirded. anything oil based. works for adhesives, too!

yeah, same thing happened to me just now. i tried the toothpaste, astringent, and nail polish remover, they all failed for me. but bleach worked really well. it all came off. only downside is the smell and in definetly burns.

the sure fire way to solve this problem is to purchase a marissa marchant album. once you listen to it, you will realize that you have much bigger problems.

dog droppings. yes they have to be fresh too. just smear some shit on your area where the hair dye is and it will come right off. try it.

I just used bicarbonate of soda mixed with a little bit of water. Made it into a paste and rubbed it around my hairline, it worked well as a gentle abrasive and is cheap and not dangerous (no chemicals that can burn)!

i had dye all over my hairline, so i used everything in my room to see what worked... i found that the best thing was cold cream... it is used to take off makeup...put a big glop on the area, let sit for a like 20 min... then take a gauze pad and wipe it off HARD!... thanks no applause

I had dyed my hair Black and somehow gotten dye on the tip of my index finger. I did'nt want to run out to the store again so I tried the Bleach and it did work but it did'nt get all of the dye off of my nail, but hey it was good enough and it does work with a old toothbrush and try sticking ur finger in a cup of bleach for awhile.

I think the oxy pads don't really work i tried it but only some of my black stains on my skin!but anyways I think hydrogen peroxide works wonders on any color on your skin!well thamx for listening

Hair dye off skin:
Bleach (prolly fastest but can feel/smell terrible)
Peroxide (not as fast but less awful)

Self-tanning accidents:
If it is a small place like a blotch on the heel or knee, take a nail file and rub the skin off
Rub whitening toothpaste on the spot
Grin and bear it, Oompa Loompa

Yr SO stopped brushing her teeth:
Too bad for you

This is my first time dying my hair and just wondering, when would it be safe for me to dye my hair again. Anyone?? I dyed it from black to a Chesnut.

Thank You!!

Sherry, Tuesday, 2 May 2006 05:59 (eleven years ago) Permalink

OK thank you for alerting me to that which I've left out.

It depends on the brand and the process, how often you really should do it. No more than once a month (unless you are in an actual emergency situation and your hair has gone a horrible color and needs correction--in this instance GO TO A SALON, NOT YOUR OWN HOUSE). Wait as long as you can between colorings because even if you're careful about applying it to the roots only it'll get everywhere. Additionally, make sure to use some deep conditioner occasionally between dyings, which will help keep your hair from breaking too badly.

You can try toothpaste, you can scrub hard, you should have used vaseline, but in the end, you've just got to look people square in the eye and think "Fuck you, I dye my hair"
