Colouring your hair gives your locks a chic upgrade, no doubt. But that perfect colour looks good only on your hair, not on your hairline, neck, ears and fingertips, right? Confused about what we are talking about?

Dyeing your hair at home can be a life-saver. It is quick, cost-efficient and produces decent results. However, the downside is the incredibly high chance of it staining your skin. The good news is, even though hair dye stains may seem stubborn, all they need is a little careful rubbing with the right ingredients, and you’re good to go! Try these brilliant hacks to remove hair dye stains instantly

Take precautions

Apply a thin layer of Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly before applying the hair dye to prevent it from staining the skin. Doing so will create a barrier between the dye and your skin, keeping those hair dye stains at bay. Another trick is dyeing second day hair instead of applying colour on freshly washed hair. The natural oils that your scalp produces will act as a layer of protection against hairline stains.

Use a face scrub

If you see stains on your skin after you have already dyed your hair, then use a gentle face scrub, such as the St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub immediately on the affected area. Massaging the scrub over your stains will help loosen them. But remember that over-scrubbing could lead to skin irritation.
