Removing Hair Dye From Skin: Home Remedies Plus More
Below I've gathered tips for removing hair dye from skin, from some of the best ideas I've found from around the web and from readers of this site who've shared their home remedies with me.
I've got suggestions for using both specific products, and also items you should be able to find around your home to remove these stains from your skin.
The thing is, most of these stains are preventable.
I know this doesn't help you right now, if you've got hair color on your skin and can't get it off, but remember, in the future, to avoid some of these problems by using gloves when applying the dye to your hair to prevent stains on your hands.
In addition, put a barrier cream on your face, around your hair line, to keep stray drips of dye from coloring your face.
Along with the tips below in how to remove hair color from skin below, I've also added one for preventing these stains in the future.
In addition, I've shared on the main hair dye stain removal page of this site tips for preventing such marks on your skin from a home hair dye professional, so be sure to check that out too. She gives a recipe for a homemade barrier cream, which I've listed.
Finally, before we begin, I want to remind you that you should always consider your safety and health first, before using any of the methods listed below, since stained skin is far superior to making yourself ill, so safety first!
Plus, I'm always looking for more tips to add to the page. Therefore, if you've got a great home remedy to share with me, or know of a great product for removing these marks, please share it with me here, and I'll add it to the page.
When coloring your hair, you want to prevent hair color stains on your skin from occurring, if possible.
The video below gives tips on how to keep your skin from getting stained.
In the video the professional hair dresser uses a heavy conditioner, and uses it as a barrier to keep the dye from getting onto the skin. She places the conditioner around her neck, and top of her ears.
She further cautions that you don't want to get this heavy conditioner on the hair itself, but instead just on the skin around the hair.
If you don't have a heavy conditioner at home, you can also use Vaseline, petroleum jelly, or another heavy lotion or cream.
What this does is it creates a protective layer over your skin which prevents the hair dye from actually touching your skin and dying it.

The video below has two stain removal tips for dye on your skin.
The first is to remove dyes, such as from food coloring, from your skin using toothpaste and a washcloth.
The second tip is for how to remove hair dye stains around your forehead hairline.
She suggests to rub the hair dye into your skin while the hair dye is still wet and on your hair.
She says it sounds crazy, but it works.
I agree -- it sounds crazy.
However, removing the stains with toothpaste is more likely to work, since toothpaste can be slightly abrasive, and help rub off the stains.
Did you know toothpaste actually has a lot of cleaning uses around your home, beside for your teeth. You can check out my article on toothpaste uses here, to get more ideas for how to use this product, or share your own tips.
