Dying your own hair saves time and money, but mistakes do happen! When it comes to hair dye, it is very easy to stain clothes, skin, and pretty much all other surfaces around us. I was told that back in the 70's and 80's, salons would use ashes from cigarettes to remove hair dye stains from their customers. This sounds a bit unappealing if you ask me! The trick to removing hair dye stains is preventing them in the first place.
To prevent strains from happening, all's you need is a little olive oil. Take a cotton ball with olive oil on it, and go along the hairline. What this does is prevents the dye from going directly on your skin. It will instead hit the oil, which makes it a breeze to wipe away.
If you already have a stain, using the oil and rubbing it in a circular motion should remove it. For hard to remove spots, using a mild facial cleanser should do the trick. Let the soap sit on the skin for 2 to 5 minutes before rinsing. If all else fails, nail polish remover will get the job done. Do not use that if you have sensitive skin!
