There are several methods to remove or get of hair dye from the skin but a lot of the success of these methods depends on the type of hair dye used and on the type of your skin. This home made remedy might be useful to remove hair dye. Use baking soda or dishwashing liquid with lemon by applying it to a damp cloth and rinsing it off. Using leftover dye and then wiping it off can also be a method of removing hair dye.

Toothpaste is also helpful in removing dye but it may not work for everyone. But it is a cheap and easy method and there is no harm in trying. There are several other ready made hair dye removers available in the market. These products are specially made to remove dye form skin. But remember to first check it out on some unobtrusive area of the body to ensure that you are not allergic to it and follow the product label instructions for the best results.

My mom got red hair dye all over her hands when she dyed my younger sisters hair. We looked online for solutions to get rid of it. I found one saying to use chlorine bleach, but my mom said 'no' because she knew it would burn really bad. Then I found one saying to use hand sanitizer. My mom tried it out, and it worked. She didn't complain about any burns.

If you need to remove red hair dye, use hand sanitizer and repeat it several times.

I use bleach on my hands everyday cleaning and it has NEVER burned. Nowadays, though, I look for somethng for eco friendly.

I'll tell you what I do for the same:

Mix baking soda with enough dish washing 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.

This is the homemade remedy for the same.

Baking Soda Toothpaste! I'm always messing about with my hair and constantly removing dye from my hands. Toothpaste is very effective in all sorts of cleaning / removing situations.

You should try this simple solution i know. Try using a toothpaste which is non-gel on an old toothbrush and scrub that part of skin having hair dye stain.

If it's non permanent then it will take sometime and if would wear off in a few days. You can also help it along by washing your hands a whole lot. Good Luck

I just dyed my own hair (dark brown) and had dye on my face and hands - I used LA's Totally Awesome cleaner full strength - you can pick it up at The Dollar Tree for a buck. I have tried bleach, Windex, cleanser you name it I have tried it and nothing worked - I literally just tried Awesome cleaner and it's GONE!

After I dye my hair RED, I always put facial lotion around my hairline to take off the excess dye. It's always worked for me.

Either windex just make sure not to get in eyes or before you wash the color out of your hair take some shampoo and rub it into every where you get the color... Then wash off when your washing your hair works everytime:-)
