Any tips for fading eyebrow tint?

Have nc'd as anyone who sees me this week will see I have fucked up the home tint job and I don't want to out myself grin

So, I mixed up black with a touch of brown for lashes and brown with a teensy smidge of black for brows. Cue DC entering the bathroom, asking questions and distracting me and, yes, I must've muddled up the trays.

Mercifully it's half term, but I would welcome any dye-fading tips as I do have to leave the house at some point.

Ooh nooo. Lemon juice, jolene facial bleach but don't leave it in too long. veet

Luckily I have Jolen but no Veet - it would really suck if I muddled those two in my current predicament!

*Disclaimer I accept no responsibility if said eyebrows fall out due to over processing with chemicals wink

A facial exfoliator, like the Dermalogica microfoliant, will help, a lot of the colour will be on your skin rather than the actual hair on your eyebrows and exfoliating will get it off.

What about something like fairy liquid (in v v small quantities so as not to blind yourself). It's meant to be great for stripping hair dye out. maybe lather a bit on a toothbrush and rub in?

Thanks, everyone!

DP didn't laugh at me when he got home but did say "Mmm, they are a bit dark". Not sure what to read into that.

I'll try exfoliating to start with, to get the colour off the skin.

Fairy isn't an option in this house - we use Ecover which I bet it lacks the chemical oomph of the green stuff but I might give it a go before resorting to the Jolen.

Lucky I wasn't getting ready for a job interview or something!

When did you do them, today?

They will have faded a lot by tomorrow. The you need to pluck, so that will help too.
Yes, yes, to exfoliating.
Don't use jolen etc as they could end up ginger.

Ps in future, don't mix, just use brown on eyebrows but leave it a couple of minutes longer, it can go quite dark brown that way.

Head and shoulders is meant to be good for removing hair dye.

I do mine black (I've got dark brown hair) and they tone down within a couple of days.
Definately try the exfoliator.

Pluck from underneath only, except if you have sticky uppy hairs like me in the middle. I only do a little bit there though.

I always have to pluck a little bit after tinting, or I do actually look like groucho marx.

Head and shoulders? Great tip.

They fade so so fast.
Or nail varnish remover
