  • I saw something on youtube that said if you take a bit of your unused hair dye you can remove some if you get it on your skin. I've never tried it yet though.

  • I dye my hair black, and I have alot of little hairs here and there that the lady dyes but then I got black spots all around my hair line. I use PRO-RETINOL 100% VEGETAL +ENZYMES DE JEUNESSE. It a gentle cleansing lotion for makeup...but it gets some of the dye off. Not all of it, but it makes it lighter, harder to see.

  • My friend who used to work as a hair stylist told me to use cigarette ash to remove hair dye from skin.  I've never personally tried it however.

  • Cigarette ashes. Get the skin damp and rub the ashes in then wash with soap and water.
