Help ASAP - need to remove dark hairdye from skin/scalp - v. urgent!
I Am A Tit. I have dyed my hair very dark - pretty close to black. I have to be somewhere Very Important at 4.45pm. Time is pushed, very pushed and I may also be out in the rain with a light coloured shirt. I need to remove all the stains, scrub and flannel hasn't worked. It looks awful around hairline, just...dirty. I am so stupid, no moey to buy hair colour remover and DH doesn't get home until ater I have gone, so totally not an option. I need to make sure it won't run, and tidy myself up! Any tips? thankyou so much
I told someone else this recently but head & shoulders original shampoo does a fab job of taking colour out to a degree,put it on dry hair & massage into hair/scalp for a few mins evenly then lather up,re rub & rinse.Use it on your face patches too as it works like a stripper,make sure you use a good conditioner after as your hair will be dry otherwise.A good hairdresser gave me the tip & it works too :0
can you not see if any friends have any H&S as baby shampoo won't do it,it really does strip the hair (a reason I would never ever use it normally) but if you have a friend or neighbour that has some,explain it's an emergency & you have been a tit (love it).........I would most certainly hand it over if it was me
For marks on the skin put a dab of toilet bleach on some loo roll and dab it on the skin. Stand next to the mirror ans watch it fade then wash it off straight away. Don't get distracted- if its on more than a minute or so it will start to burn and thats not nice, but I've used this many times to get black dye off my forehead!
