How do I get hair dye off of skin?

I dyed my hair earlier and there are still stains on my upper forehead and ear lobes from it.. i tried wiping it away with cold cream and rubbing alcohol but neither worked. Any other ideas?

  • Before you put hair dye next time, put some shampoo on your ears and forehead, back of your necks etc. It will just wash off. Good luck!

  • At work we use cheap perm solution, or you can go to a beauty supply store and purchase actual remover that removes haircolor from the skin...

  • It will go away on its own after a couple of showers. Are you in a rush or what?

  • It will wear off after a few washes. I was gonna say alcohol or acetone.
