My hair is salt and pepper and I like it. I love the white. I accidentally got some Coppertone self tanner for your face on some of my hair. It turned the white to a brownish/yellow. It is just a few spots in the front. How do I remove it? I have shampooed, used baking soda paste, and tried green tea paste.
This happened about 3 weeks ago. I am about due for a hair cut. Short of getting a shorter cut than I want, how can I get it out?

You might want to spray some 3% peroxide on the spots to remove the stain. Leave the peroxide on your hair about 15-20 minutes, then wash out.
Thanks. I found that suggestion on the net last night. I mixed peroxide and baking soda, left it on for 15 min. rinsed. It took several applications but before I went to bed I have it all out but one little strand that is still slightly discolored. I plan on working it out today.
Bonus: The white in my hair is really bright and white now.
Perhaps using hydrogen peroxide or a facial bleach might work!
Years ago when my sister would flub up a dye on her hair, she would was it with Tide detergent and it would normally strip out the bad color. Good luck.
