How to Remove Hair Dye Stains Off Your Skin

Some women prefer to color their hair at home, not just because it’s more convenient but because it’s a lot cheaper. However, dyeing your hair at home can be messy. Even those who have mastered the art of at-home hair coloring still dye their skin from time to time. That hair color looks great on you, but not on your cheeks, ears, neck, forehead or scalp.

Although these stains become lighter as the days pass by, it would be better if you can remove it right away so you can go out and show off your new ‘do. Here’s how to get rid of those dye stains using some household products.

Makeup remover

Regular soap and water won’t remove dye stains. Try a stronger solution – makeup remover. This is one of the safest home remedies to remove dye stains. This is especially recommended for those with sensitive skin.

Baking soda

Baking soda can actually scrape off dead skin cells due to its abrasive nature. Combine equal parts of baking soda and liquid detergent. Get a wash cloth or a cotton ball and use it to scrub the solution onto the dyed skin. Rinse with running water. If the stain doesn’t come off, you’d be better off trying another method of dye removal.

Baby oil

Still can’t seem to get that stain off your skin? Try baby oil. Dab a cotton ball in baby oil and rub it on your skin until the color fades. Leave it on overnight and wash off the next day.


Detergent will work the fastest, but it’s not recommended for people with sensitive skin. Detergent can be quite harsh, especially if used on the face. We suggest using it on your hands, rather than your face.

To remove stains, rub a small amount of laundry detergent onto the dyed area of your skin. Scrub the area using a clean cloth or cotton.
