There are loads of other “old wives tales” out there when it comes to removing hair color from the skin. Though many of these will depend on how much color has seeped, how permanent the blend is and where it is located, one of these “home-tested” methods might just do the trick for you:
- Dab a cotton ball or Q-tip in olive oil, and gently rub on the stained area until the colors fade.
- Spray a bit of hairspray onto a cotton ball. Before the color has time to dye, rub the cotton ball onto the stained area of skin to break the bond of color to the skin.
- Mix some baby oil and facial cleanser together, and apply to the stained area with a washcloth. Apply in a gentle, circular motion to exfoliate.
- If your skin is not sensitive, you might even try a bit of nail polish remover on a cotton ball. Apply to the stained color to remove.
To prevent hair dye stains use a hair protective oil or Vaseline around the nape of the head
