Grey hairs needed urgent attention, couldn't find Vaseline to make protective barrier, now have dark brown ears, forehead (and elbow )What will get it off? I only have acetone-free nail-polish remover, which doesn't work.Bleach?
I was going to say nail varnish remover. I know it would be harsh- (but you sound desperate.) What about white spirit?
Baby wipes might be worth a goVim...?
I had to give my ears/forehead/neck a good scrub with the scourer side of those sponge pads last weeek Hurt like hell but managed to get it all off!
Maybe try those fake tan remover wipes you can get from Boots 17? Or lemon juice? Not sure why I think lemons, but maybe it will work?You poor thing
oh my god your title made laugh out loud. i do this every 6 weeks and have virtually stopped caring! i think a good bit of exfoliating is what works best. i'd try an alcohol based toner or some such chemical thing that burns.good luck!
I would go for the baby wipes. They did the trick for me when I had hairdye on my neck! Good luck ...
Update:Baby wipes: didn't work at all (although maybe that's a good thing)Vim: dunno, it's not 1952, so I don't have any Surgical spirit: worked a bit, made eyes waterDomestos: Worked like a charm!
In the hairdressers where I used to work, when this happened with darker shades we used milk to remove the colour from skin.But the best thing to do is when you are washing off the colour add just a little water and massage head and all round the hairline(especially ears) and it takes it off.Hth
domestos! wow - that's hardcore. you suffer for your beauty. well done.
PMSL @ thread title
what's pmsl mean, nomdeplume?
For future reference, Clearasil works like a charm - worth keeping a bottle 'for emergency use only', esp. if you're planning on doing roots in six/eight weeks!Or (and I don't know why this works, but my hairdresser used to do it years ago), hairspray on cotton wool.I too PMSL @ thread title, but not as much as I did at Domestos...
Milk? Clearasil? Cotton Wool?You're all wusses, the hard stuff is what you need!
