How to remove hair dye from skin, 5 Easy Home Remedies

By manisha   

Hair dyes give our hair a new color to your hair but at the same time can stain our hairline and hands, which looks very unappealing. Sometimes these hair dye stains can cause skin irritation as well.

So following are the home remedies to remove the hair dye stains from skin:



  • Cotton ball: 1
  • Toothpaste: pea-sized (or as per the requirement)


  1. Put the pea-sized toothpaste on the cotton ball.
  2. Rub the cotton ball on the dyed skin area gently for 2 minutes. Toothpaste helps to remove the stain and can be used on fingers and face as well.
  3. Leave it the same way for 3- 4 minutes.
  4. Then, rinse the area with lukewarm water. Use your fingers to rub the toothpaste off that area.
  5. And the stains will be removed. If not, then repeat the same steps once more.



  • Lemon peel: half a lemon(or as per the requirement)
  • Towel (dipped in lukewarm water): 1


  1. Take half a lemon and squeeze out the lemon juice.
  2. Now take the peel of that squeezed lemon and turn it inside out.
  3. Rub the inside out part of lemon peel on the stained skin area, gently.
  4. Keep rubbing it for 3- 4 minutes.
  5. After you are done rubbing the affected area, take a towel and dip it in the lukewarm water. Then, gently clean the affected area with the towel.
  6. And the stains will be removed! If the stains are still visible, repeat the same steps once or twice.



  • Baking soda: ½ teaspoon
  • Liquid detergent: ½ teaspoon
  • Cotton ball: 1


  1. Mix the baking soda with liquid detergent. Baking soda has antioxidant properties which helps in the deep cleansing of the stain and liquid detergent will help in the application of baking soda.
  2. Take a cotton ball and dip it into the mixture of baking soda and detergent.
  3. Using the cotton ball, apply and rub the mixture on the dyed skin area until the stain fades away.
  4. Don’t rub it for more than 3-4 minutes though.
