MissDQ tells us 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.
You should've rubbed Vaseline around your hairline and ears... Try scrubbing your skin with soap.
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!
you deserved this. I dont understand how you could get it all over yourself. I bet you are a blonde (:
cigarette ashes! it's gross but it definitely works. use it to e black dye off my forehead. beauty school trick!
