My freind and I just dyed my hair brown. I gave her the gloves they give you in the box and I was using my bare hands to apply -- DUH for me! Anyway my hands now look completely bruised!!!!!! I can't get the dye off! I've tried everything-- including bleach!

Any ideas as to what can take this stuff off! I gotta go to work tommorrow!

I never use gloves, but I always rinse as I go. If noone has an answer I would call the number on the box. I wonder if gasoline would work? or maybe paint thinner?

Tisk Tisk Tisk, lol I never use gloves when I do blonde colors but darker ones I always use. You can find a color remover for skin at Sally's forget the name of it but it works great. I use it around my clients hairlines after I applied the color. If that doesn't work you will most likely have to let it wear off.

Yeah the color remover from Sally's works great. I think its called, "Clean Touch Haircolor Stain Remover"

Well, I've found stuff at the drug store by Scuncci.. it's like a hair comb brand, but they sold hair dye remover towelettes. Really cheap! They work really, really well.

Sally's is a beauty supply store here in the US, I am sure you could find a store just like it around where you are.

I don't know if this would help but maybe soaking your hands in olive oil. I know that it helps for paint. Sorry about your dilemma.

They work really, really well. I've seen that too!! They actually have a whole kit for preventing dye on the hands, clothes, hairline etc. It even comes w/ a "cape"....I'm at a loss for words. You know what I mean.

If you are desperate try checking the eyelash dye section of Shoppers Drug Mart, some of the kits come with dye remover. That's the only place I've ever seen it in Canada.

Also, color removes color...
Not really gonna help you now, but in the future, if you get some on your hairline or wherever, when you go to rinse it out... rub some of your 'color coated' hair over the spots on your skin, and it comes off
