  Have you ever dyed your hair with Manic Panic and discovered that all your skin is stained after rinsing out the dye?  

Do you have dye traces on your hands, face contours, and ears?


First, I’ll tell you not to worry because it’s nothing serious.

The dye stains left by Manic Panic on the skin are easy to remove. After all, a semi-permanent dye gradually fades with washing.

Therefore, using the same logic, Manic Panic stains should disappear from your skin after washing them once or twice.

Today, I’ll tell you how to get them off your skin. Still, before you start applying the dye, remember to protect your skin to avoid staining.

The problem is that some pigments in Manic Panic hair dyes are more intense.

For example,   removing skin stains from a Manic Panic pastel pink hair dye is not the same as removing skin stains from Classic Vampire Red hair dye, which could stay for days.  


It’s also not the same to have a dye stain on your earlobe, which you can conceal with a lock of your hair, as it’s to have all your hands stained with blue dye.

So, today I’ll tell you about these five methods for getting Manic Panic stains off the skin, from the simplest to the most complicated.

These methods can also help you get stains out from other semi-permanent dyes, like Splat, for example.

Method 1: Use Manic Panic cleaning wipes

Manic Panic Dye Stain Remover Wipes

  Manic Panic’s Dye Away Wipes are specially designed to get dye stains off the skin on the face, neck, and hands.  


They’ll remove all stains, regardless of color, from the lightest to the most intense. Moreover, they don’t have ammonia, so they won’t irritate your skin.

Each pack contains 50 units, so they’re worth the price.


Method 2: use argan oil to remove dye stains from the neck and face

All you’ll need is a few drops of argan oil and a cotton pad, like the one you use to remove makeup from your face.

  • Place a few drops of argan oil on the cotton pad.
  • Press the cotton pad on the stains and   leave it on for ten minutes.  
  • Apply more oil with the cotton pad and wait two or three minutes.
  • Remove the oil residue.


If traces are still left because you have applied a very intense color, you can leave the oil on the stained areas overnight and wipe it off in the morning.

Your skin will be moisturized and free of color residue.


Method 3: Remove Manic Panic dye stains with solid coconut oil, especially if your skin is very sensitive

  If you stained your sensitive skin with a very intense and strong dye color,   I recommend you use coconut oil to get the stains off your skin.


For years, cosmetologists have recommended using coconut oil as a makeup remover, because it moisturizes the skin while removing makeup.

I have found that it can also remove dye stains.

  • With your finger, apply a thin layer of the solid oil.
  • Leave it on for three to five minutes.
  • Remove with a paper towel.


Method 4: Mix baking soda, detergent, and lemon for darker dye stains

  I only recommend this method to remove the darkest dye stains off your hands.   The skin on the face is very delicate, and both this method and the one I’ll tell you about below could irritate it.

  • In a glass, mix one tablespoon of baking soda, 1/2 tablespoon of detergent, and the juice of 1/2 lemon.
  • Apply the blend to your hands with a cotton ball, and rub them gently.
  • Rinse your hands with warm water.
  • Apply moisturizer to your hands because baking soda and lemon juice dry out the skin.


Method 5: Mix a 20-volume developer and conditioner for stubborn Manic Panic dye stains on your hands

If I were you, I’d try the previous method before this one. If you applied a semi-permanent dye, you didn’t want to use a developer and ammonia.

However, maybe you have an important engagement and you cannot show up with stained hands. Then, this method will be foolproof to leave your hands completely free of dye stains.

  • Mix 50 ml of a 20-volume developer in a plastic container and 50 ml of moisturizing conditioner.
  • Apply the mixture to your hands like a moisturizer and leave it on for ten minutes. The conditioner will moisturize your skin while the Manic Panic residue is removed.
  • Rinse your hands with warm water and white soap, and apply moisturizer.



If you usually stain your hands with Manic Panic hair dye, I recommend you use Manic Panic Panic cleansing wipes. You can use them to remove stains from your face and hands because they won’t irritate your skin.

Plus, they are inexpensive and offer excellent performance.
