Removing Hair Dye from Skin?

I dyed my boyfriend's hair and he has hair dye all on his forehead and ears. We have tried everything to get it off; any other tips?

There is a product at beauty supply stores (such as Sally Beauty Supply) you can buy made by Clairol called Clean Touch and it's gentle to the skin. Just follow the directions. In the future carefully spread a very thin layer of Vaseline (or other petroleum jelly brand) along his hairline and on his ears. Be sure not to get the jelly 'on the hair' or the color won't take correctly in those spots.

Rub ash from an ashtray to remove the dye. Then wash.

Ash did not work

Phone the number on the box of hair dye and speak to someone from the company. They have a help line.

The only thing that really works is nail polish remover. I know that sounds terrible, but I use it everytime I get my hair done. Just dip a Qtip or cotton ball or an old washcloth in the remover and gently rub on the areas that are stained by the dye. Don't rub too hard. When you're finished removing the unwanted dye, wash the area with soap and water. Better yet, shampoo the hair. Hope this helps.

I get my hair colored at the local beauty school. They use something called Sea Breeze on a cotton ball. Works great. You can buy it at any drug store or Walmart.

That wouldn't make sense, sea breeze is a scalp treatment, they most likely are using a for of "color off" which you can purchase, but simply applying it like sea breeze

Stay with me here. Toothpaste. Scrub with rough washcloth or tooth brush. Ears will be clean!
