Changing our hair color is the ultimate profound trend in house! Speaking of which, it’s not something that has magically dropped in trends in the 20th century. Hair colors has a long history of personality makeover transformation. Back in the times of Elizabeth England, women tend to fair hair via urine. Gross! Luckily with the advent of modern colors, we’re safer in using a much-less-gross-than-urine-formula for dying hair the shade we want. However, the effect of these strong color on hair is as strong as on the skin. It’s one of the biggest struggles we all deal with afterwards! To get the makeover we’ve been experimenting hair dyes for centuries. What we’ve learnt in the long run is to take countering measures to reach out for a clean dye.
And while you opt for removing dye off your skin, you might want to pay extra care to which option you go for which part of the skin as the skin where dye tends to fall is delicate, thus you want to use the most gentle method possible. While, the easiest way of all is to go straight for a professional product designed to remove dye stains, you most likely don’t have access to one at home. Instead famous celebrity Hairstylist, George Papanikolas, who is also Kardashian/Jenner hair colorist, recommends putting laundry detergent, dish soap, baby oil or olive oil on a damp wash cloth and gently rubbing the skin. (Detergent may work the best but those with sensitive skin may want to use an oil, which softens the skin and helps break the color). In addition to this, a more experimental route is one we can’t fully endorsed is cigarette as rubbed on the stain.” He notes, “I’ve never tried this technique, but it’s an old wives tale in salons.” Here are some of our favorite tricks to get rid of that pesky skin while at home!
Mix baking soda with enough dishwashing soap to make a paste. Rub this into the hair dye stain and work it in well. Rinse off the paste and your skin should be clean.
Usage of non-gel tooth-paste on an old toothbrush is yet another effective method to get rid of that stain. You just scrub the toothpaste at the stain.
Apply some petroleum jelly onto the stain and scrub in for as long as the color dispenses into the jelly and skin is left clean. If so, let it sit on the stain overnight and this should work.
Soak a cotton ball with nail polish remover and dab this onto the hair dye stain. Rub gently and you should see the dye begin to lift off your skin. Isopropyl alcohol works in the same way.
Last but not the least, a professional hair dye brush! For me dying hair was such a prick at times (it isn’t even an option when you want to stand out in the crowd. and) well, yes! i did too. By standing head high with a messy dye! After struggling for a secret trick to perfect dye I followed afore mentioned tips and tricks but, when I’m in a rush I more than often opt for a professional applicator that can save me some time. Here’s one I’m currently using for my hair dye.
