Use hair dye barrier cream for preventing hair color from staining skin. Although purple hair for your skin color and texture offers great looks but it sure does not look good on the forehead. You may even end up with stains on your hairline and fingers for a day if you were coloring your hair at home without taking any precautions. These dye stains are however not permanent. But with a barrier cream they can be prevented. Prevention is always better than having to remove them afterwards from skin.
Protecting the Hairline
Use Hair Dye after Washing Hair – It is best to dye hair the day after washing it. This is because oils from pores and scalp act as natural protectors. They are the first defense against stained skin. They repel water and dyes are generally water based. Shampoo and wait for a day to dye hair. Actual color sticks better to dirty hair.
Protecting the Hairline Perimeter – Use hair dye barrier cream to create a protective wall just outside the entire head including the hairline. Apply a thick layer, but do not extend it too far in the head. Half an inch to an inch should be good enough. Do not let the stain barrier cream into the hair. Also apply hair dye barrier cream on the tops and undersides of the ears.
Protecting Hands, Shoulders and Neck
Wear Plastic Gloves – Do not forget the hands while protecting the hairline. Just wear simple disposable gloves in order to avoid blue fingers and nails. Wear gloves throughout the dyeing and even for the first few times while washing the newly dyed hair. come with several hair dye kits to make the process easier. Avoid wearing latex gloves if you are allergic since there are plenty of latex-free alternative gloves in the market as well.
Wear an Old Shirt and Wrap an Old Towel – It would be sensible to wear an old long-sleeved and high-necked shirt while dyeing hair. In order to protect the skin against stains, cover as much as it is possible. You can probably wear a designated dye shirt every time you color hair. Offer neck and shoulders some extra protection by wrapping an old towel around the shoulders. Wrap it tightly and secure it with a binder clip or duckbill. This will effectively prevent dripping hair dye from staining neck.
Immediately Wipe Away Any Errant Dye – No matter how much care you take, accidents happen. Hair color, sometimes can land up on face or neck. Wipe it off with a remover as soon as you notice them. Put up your hair in a bun or ponytail after dying your hair.
