After a night dyeing my friends hair black with no gloves (dumb mistake on my part), my hands were so stained that I could not see my pasty white skin, LOL. I tried everything posted on here to remove it and my grandma suggested fabric softener and dish soap.
It worked quite well, I soaked my hands in it and scrubbed gently with a dish scrubber for about 10 minutes, and it was almost all gone. Then I lathered my hands with aloe lotion for 10 minutes and proceeded doing this 4 times in a row. Worked for me my hands are now clean and pasty white again =)
I wish you all the best with your own hair dye catastrophe.

I'll have to remember this! I do wear gloves but sometimes a hole develops in the glove or some dye seeps into the glove at the wrist opening. Thanks for the tip. (03/04/2010)
We learned in hairdressing school that hair dye removes hair dye so if this should ever happen again just add a little dye to your skin, lather with soap and rinse. It should work.
