i think because you have to let it set in that they went to scratch while the product was still in that's it kind of just almost spread onto a couch
I've actually almost done this before. I scratched an itch, and caught myself before I almost set my hand back down beside me on the couch. It's really not that hard to forget you have hairdye on your head, especially if you're new at it.
HanBanana15, even when I was a n00b at coloring my hair, I never forgot that I had hair color - please, let's call it what it really is and not product - on. It's not as easy to forget about as your suggesting. I'm always aware that I have color on my head when I'm coloring my hair. I also never sit on my couch unless I'm wearing one of those plastic shower caps. And, even then, I don't lean back on my couch.
Thanks for the suggestions guys! Just want to clarify a few points: I dye my hair every six weeks, and have for years. Never had a mishap before. I always use the same non - drip colour, pin my hair up onto my head with a bulldog clip and cover with an old towel until it sets. This time, I was tired, forgot what I was doing, scratched an itch and put my hand on the sofa beside me. I ended up with three dark purple (almost black) finger marks on my deep red leather sofa. My alarm then went off, so I ran upstairs to wash off the colour - still having not noticed. It must have been 60-90 minutes later before I came downstairs and noticed my mistake. I figured baby wipes are excellent for removing hairdye from skin, the sink and the bath, so tried that first; but the only thing that achieved was soapy detergent residue and the stain being spread. I then tried the leather cleaner that came with the sofa. Obviously that didn't work either so I tried bleach wipes. They started to remove the marks, but also the red colour from the leather; so obviously I stopped what I was doing and called the company for advice - just waiting on them to get back to me. Also worth adding, the cushions don't remove so I can't flip them and the sofa was custom made so I can't put a cover over it. I have currently hid the stain with a blanket so my parents don't come in and judge.
