"...dried in a purplish blot"|
My short-comings as a hair colorist are stained upon my skin. :p In purplish blots, no less.
I tried a permanent color this time, instead of my usual 'semi-permanent' color (which doesn't ever completely wash out). The color seems about what I usually have (maybe a little less red, hard to tell in the bathroom lights), but we will see how it wears. If I see the slightest sign of 'purplish' in my hair, I will be most displeased.

Sally's Beauty Supply has a product for removing hair dye from skin.
I do know that liquid laundry soap will strip hair color also, so maybe I'd just try a dab on that first.
Quick question: is liquid laundry soap a good thing to put on your hair?

Logically speaking, it can't be TOO harsh, or our clothes wouldn't survive. Granted, one is supposed to use Woolite for wool (which is, of course, sheep hair).
Good point, I hadn't thought of that.
I wouldn't do it on a regular basis, as I'm sure it also strips oils out, but for a quick once-to-get-the-color-out, I've done it.
I just conditioned like mad afterward.
Ah, good to know.
I now will go to you for hair-color questions. You might want to hide from me. ;-)
Hee. Well, I've been everything from "pillowcase white" to every color of the rainbow including multi-colored to dark starlings wing black (black that shined purple in the sunlight), so ask away, I don't mind.

Well, I hear-tell (from radcliffe
) that Dawn will strip color, too. But not very quickly from my hair, it seems. It does, however, clean out other build-up and some color over time, so I tend to wash my hair with that for the last week before I recolor.

But I would go looking for that product anyway, if the marks were a little darker.
What I don't understand is, how did I get a big ol' smear ON MY CHIN, gosh darn it!
:-) I've changed my hair color to blonde, and my shower walls are blonde. I think it is funny, my boyfriend, however, is not amused.

Heh. Yeah, the red on the walls is... amusing. Yes, that's the word. ;)
One of those "if you don't laugh, you'll cry situations, huh?"
i use permanent since for me I get a richer color - amusing since purplish is what i'm goign for

And the plum looks really good on you. But I tend to go for the warmer reds in my brown, rather than the cooler ones.
yeap, I actually noticed it when playing but forgot to say something
