Calling all women (or men) who dye their hair.....

Hi Everyone... I was wondering if anyone has a secret trick to get hair dye off skin. I colored mine last night and there are some spots along my hair line that are very discolored right now.....please help.....

Thanks.....

I accidentally dyed a huge spot on my hand dark brown once (the dye somehow got inside the glove). I used rubbing alcohol and non-acetone nail polish remover. I've also heard that you can use milk (on a cotton ball) or as bizarre as it sounds, hand cream with cigarette ash. I haven't tried either of those, so I don't know if they work, but if you're desperate, it's worth a shot.

A good way of avoiding getting the color along the hairline in the first place is to apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly right up to where the hairline begins.

Keeping a towel nearby dabbed in hot water so you can catch spots is also good, I find.

I had friends who used nail polisher remover. I've never dyed my hair so I have no personal experiences to offer.

I can vouch for the nail polish remover. I definatly get dye on my hands alot and being as I choose to make my hair bright red, this is usually a problem. But yes, to reiterate try putting petrolium jelly around your hairline, it will keep your skin its intended color. If all else fails, just tell people that you wanted to die your skin and that it is haute culture.

Yeah, if I ever want color, I use temporary stuff because I like offbeat colors like purple and blue.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I normally dye my hair reds and blonds so the color isn't noticable, but after deciding to go dark brown last night, I learned why people do the Petroleum Jelly trick.... and will remember for next time....

I will try all those, leaving the cigarette ash's for the last desprete attempt!!

Thanks again....

i usually use a bottle of hair dye remover...it really works!

but i've been bleaching it lately so i haven't had to worry about looking like i got ketchup or blood on my scalp (since i switch between dark red and platinum blonde)

That's what I was just wondering. It would've come in handy a month ago when my hair was eight different colours all at once. Well, okay, not eight, but it was brown in some parts and redder in others. I had to wash it 28 times in one weekend to get it to fade enough that I could go to work on Monday. Never dying my hair again. Unless I get really bored this weekend....

My roots are really showing--I haven't touched up my hair since January. Don't know if I should let it grow out or just dye it again...

they sell it at like sally beauty supply and shiznit, basically the places hairdressers go to get their supplies. some of them you can't go in though unless you have a cosmeotology license, but that's just here and there are places where it doesn't apply.

i dunno if it works on hair though, just skin...but if it doesn't i know there's stuff that you can put on hair to strip it of the dye.

what colour were you dying it and what colour is your hair naturally?
