By now, you’ve probably settled into a stay-at-home haircare routine. On the other hand, perhaps you’re still throwing beauty darts at the wall to see what actually sticks. Understandably so, hair color is a point of concern for many because we usually leave dye jobs to the professionals. However, with salon hours extremely limited and box dye readily available, touching up roots and testing new shades at home is more popular than ever. And since that inevitably leads to a spill or two, the best hair color remover wipes are having a moment as well.
A dollop of dye on your hair strands can be easily redistributed with a brush or gloved hands. But that same dollop on a bathroom sink or your skin can quickly settle in and leave behind a barely-there stain that will always bother you. Thankfully, there are plenty of hair color remover wipes and pads soaked in a gentle mix of exfoliating and soothing ingredients to erase unwanted color without causing irritation. Most of them are also affordable—check out some of the best options below.
Framar Kolor Killer Wipes
If you want more bang for your buck, these multipurpose wipes clock in at just under $10 with 100 wipes in one container. The gentle, but effective formula includes exfoliating lactic acid, dead sea salt, and soothing aloe. Plus, the fresh and clean scent will overpower the strong hair dye smell.
