Tips for Getting Rid of Dye From Your Skin

  • Apply lotion to your hands to restore moisture after each treatment.
  • And before your next at-home-dye job, remember first to coat stain-prone areas, like the nape of your neck, your ears, and forehead with petroleum jelly, a pea-sized amount of hair wax or a rich body cream which will act as a barrier, and prevent stained skin.
  • If you have small cuts in your skin, do not use the toothpaste or lemon juice.
