FML - The follow-up

Today, I dyed my hair. And my forehead. And my ears. And my arms. And my hands. FML

MissDQ Say more :
I've been dying my hair since I was 14, so know what I'm doing. I just now live in a tiny house with a tiny bathroom and my hair is just shy of my butt. I usually use a mirror to make sure I'm ok, but because of the length of my hair I have to do it upside down over the bathtub. It got on my arms while doing the main body of my hair, ears and forehead are a no brainier and I had a couple of spots drip down the gloves while I was doing the ends. I managed to get it off my face thankfully because I had to go out in public. The box said to use a wet towel with shampoo on it when you rinse it out, which I did and it didn't seem to be working so I attacked my face with exfoliating gloves and it did the job. I've now got to work out how to scrub the purple off the vanity and in the bathtub. I do wipe it straight away but it stains right away too. It's a super dark mahogany since I have to use 2 bottles. Looks blackish in the shade and red in the sun. Came out far better than I expected and I've never gone dark before so it's a nice change. Adds to the 'new me' thing I've got going.

You're supposed to put the dye in your hair, not use it as bubble bath. I would ask if you were blonde, but that's a stupid stereotype. And I think it's a moot point now anyway.

Rubbing alcohol. My hair is fuchsia and it always ends up everywhere. Rubbing alcohol takes it out like a charm. Even on the bathtub. Also, it'll get Sharpie off your skin.

Must be, otherwise I would hope OP would've known enough to use gloves, put Vaseline around the hairline and ears, and be careful with the dye! However OP, in case you just forgot, the dye will come off your skin in about a day or two so no need to worry :) if you want to help it along, scrub at the dyed areas with warm water and either soap or shampoo (hair dye is designed to come out faster under warmer water and soap/shampoo), or try nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol, which will basically remove anything from your skin. Good luck!

I'm a brunette and I redye my pink streaks every couple of months. When I do it myself it gets everywhere no matter what. Red/pink colours stain the worst.
