Lemon juice

Lemon juice can be used to remove hair dye from skin. The powerful acidic nature of lemon juice easily breaks down the dye’s active ingredient and is a mildly abrasive. You can mix it with baking soda and apply on the skin but avoid it if you’ve sensitive skin and especially near the eye area. Leave it for few minutes and wash off with warm water. Apply a moisturizer as lemon juice dries off the skin.


Vinegar is another home remedy that works like an exfoliator to remove hair dye. Vinegar helps remove dead skin cells which clean off dye color too. Combine an equal amount of vinegar and water; stir well. Saturate a cotton ball with the solution and rub it over the stain. If you experience any redness or irritation discontinue the use.

Tips to prevent getting hair dye stains

Prevention is better than cure, so be pre-prepared before coloring your hair to avoid any colorings on your skin.

  • Dye on the day you haven’t washed your hair to allow the natural oils to work as a stain removing agent.
  • Always wear gloves before attempting to dye your hair to avoid getting the dye on your hands.
  • Wear a head band or wrap a cotton cloth a little bit closer to your hairline to set a boundary between the perimeters of your hair line.
  • Coat your hairline with petroleum jelly to prevent getting dye stains on the hairline. Also, apply petroleum jelly behind your ears and the back of your neck.
