How To Remove Splat Hair Dye From Skin

Whether it’s your scalp, forehead, wrist, neck or any part of your skin, we have easy DIY solutions that you can do at home without putting a lot of effort.

Makeup Remover

If you have sensitive skin, try using a makeup remover in a cotton ball and rub the area where the splat hair dye is stained. After that leave it for a few minutes to sit and do its job perfectly and rinse it off with lukewarm water. This method is effective and simple that anyone can do.

Oils actually help to lighten the stains and quickly remove barely-there stains. If the stain you have got is not that dark and pigmented it can be said that an olive oil or baby oil can make them go away if you apply the oil to the affected areas and leave it overnight. I suggest to rub the areas where the stains are, then next morning clean it first with a damp towel and then use a face wash to wash the oil properly from your skin.

While you must have tried a toothpaste to fade a pimple scar, it also helps lighten and remove a splat hair dye stain. Mostly, toothpaste contains baking soda which is an active ingredient helping in the removal of stains. For this removing method use a white and non-gel toothpaste. There’s no rocket science, just put little toothpaste on the stains and gently rub. Then, remove it with a washcloth or a removing pad that you use for makeup removals. Lastly, wash it off with warm water.

Hydrogen Peroxide

A mixture of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide can actually help remove the splat hair dye stain on your skin, yes, just like other stains they remove. Also keep this formula light as it can be harsh if used in large amounts on your skin. For removing the splat hair dye with these ingredients, just scrub the area where you have stains with a wet towel and leave it for a few minutes. Rinse off with warm water to get rid of the solution on your skin.
