Remove Hair Dye from Hands
Q: I have just dyed someone's hair black and I didn't wear any gloves. How can I remove the black tint off my hands? As it has stained, and not removing. Please help as soon as possible!
Soak your hands in a bowl of "first aid strength" hydrogen peroxide. This will require a long soak, but will be safer for your skin. Use a nail brush and some baking soda to buff the skin and nails during the immersion process. This may take several processes, but it will help to remove the stain.
A more dramatic approach is to use chlorine bleach on a cloth to swab the stains on the skin. Allow it to sit for two-three minutes then wash hands thoroughly with warm water, followed by cool water. Be advised that this can severely dry out the skin. So be sure to follow up with a good moisturizing hand cream.
Your other option would be to wait and let the color stains simply "wear" off.
