What to do if you get hair dye on your skin

According to Healthline, there are a few different things you can try when trying to remove hair dye from your skin, but it’s important to keep in mind the location of the hair dye stain. If the hair dye is on your face or near your hairline, reach for olive oil or a small amount of toothpaste, then leave on the skin for a few minutes, before rinsing. If this doesn’t work, go back to basics and try soap and water. 

If it’s on your hands or body, opt for rubbing alcohol or nail polish, using a cotton bud to spot clean. Again, be sure to rinse your skin with water after the dye has been removed, as it tends to be harsh and drying for certain skin types. Baking soda mixed with water is another option. The key is to remember to be gentle. “No matter what, always be careful not to rub your skin raw,” Beverly Hills-based dermatologist Ava Shamban warned Allure. If the hair dye doesn’t come out, you’re better off just waiting it out rather than damaging your skin.
