EliTheAdorable tells us more.
All of you who gave me things to say to customers, they were hilarious! Also, I'd like to explain a little bit. The reason she didn't have any gloves for me to wear is because the hair dye she bought didn't come in a box. It was two metal tubes of the stuff in a bag, that was it! I knew better but let her talk me into it anyway. It's definitely my fault, I take full responsibility because I've dyed hair before (mine, mainly) and I know what it can do and if she had told me about it any sooner, I would have brought my own gloves. Oh well, just another funny story to tell. As for work, I went up to the restaurant (I don't live more than 2 miles away) showed my manager my hands and explained the situation. He laughed about and was understanding. Luckily, someone was able to cover my shift, I just needed to clean my hands ASAP! Thank you for all of the suggestions on how to get it off! They're returning to their normal shade of porcelain white (which makes it even more obvious) but I'm definitely going to speed up the process! Sorry for the long comment!

I've used hair dyes that don't stain my skin. I almost always get some on my skin even though I always wear gloves. That being said, the chemicals are really not good for you. That's why you're not supposed to massage hair dye into your scalp. So OP made a pretty dumb mistake.
Sorry OP, but, hey- why not work at a tire shop until your dye washes off! First Comment First Vote!
But why wouldn't you wear gloves anyhow? Everybody knows those chemicals are pretty strong, and yes, stain whatever they touch
I hate wearing gloves because it makes me feel like I can't get into the hair as well. I've been dying my hair eccentric colors for 4 years so I've had the stained hands. Through my experience make up wipes, acetone (like nail polish remover), or just time will take off the stain from hands, necks, and foreheads quite nicely. Anyway I just came to say I hate wearing gloves, it's a matter of preference and if you're willing to deal with the consequences.
