How to Prevent Hair Dye Stains on Skin


For many years, the only thing to turn to for hope was Vaseline.  Pure WHITE Petroleum Gel.

It just didn’t quite do the trick, though, as the ammonia in the haircolor would break down the petroleum jelly.

Plus, it was greasy, and it seemed that the jelly would break down and still leave stains.

AND THEN, it never seemed to fail, especially on fine hair… there would be a greasy leftover on the hair

Expecting freshly colored and shampooed hair often ended up a bit greasy looking.

So, maybe a little less staining, with now greasy hair…. ????  Not quite the look…

Stain removal solutions were the next “trick.”

Unfortunately, for sensitive folks, you realized pretty quickly it was a version of alcohol and ammonia that essentially removed the top-most layer of skin (chemical exfoliation).

So, at that point, you get some of the stained skin removed, maybe some redness, irritation, allergic itch, but it ALSO

would remove some of the color molecules you just put into the hairline hairs…  leading to hair color fade sooner than it should!

What to do?

We at Belegenza realized we needed to keep the color molecules from sticking to the skin yet still allowing color molecules to enter the hair.

How do we fill the pores of the skin, the micro-cracks-and-crevices of the top layer of skin so the color molecules can’t take hold?

In another OVER EATING FRENZY, Cheryl and I had another AHA!-moment!

When you bake a cake you don’t just smear grease on the pan, you use oils AND dust it with flour!

THEN, you pour in the cake batter, right?

When it’s time to remove the cake from the pan, all you do is flip the pan and the cake slips out!


We needed a thick oil, and a flour-like something to create that barrier to create that non-stick layer
on the scalp, so that as the color is placed on the new growth of the hair, it has this “protective layer.”

By the way… the TRICK to this is that the flour  we use settles onto the hair like a layer of dust that creates a blanket

of protection especially in the micro-cracks-and-crevices of the skin and scalp, and especially around the follicle lip that between the hair surface and skin itself.  This keeps the ammonia and dye chemicals from entering the actual follicle below the skin lip level.  PHEEW!!

That’s quite a sentence to read and visualize, right?

Well, in a nutshell, the oily flour mixture provides an amazing layer of stain protection, while still allowing the color dye to do its magic on the hair….even color resistant hair around the hairline ( for those of you who MIGHT have some grey to cover! LOL!)

By the way, the ONLY molecules of dyes that seem to still stain —-less than ever, though— are levels 2 and 3 of most brands.  This dye structure is simply …..evil.. when it comes to sticking on the skin.  So, though, you will have less staining than ever, there will sometimes be a bit of staining on those colors.. 2 & 3 are usually darkest brown or brown/black.  Funny enough… pure black hair color seems to be fine with Protect Base Cream & Stain Resistor.. again, that dye molecule seems to be kinder than 2 & 3!

Amazing way to protect from staining.

If you are the sensitive type, like Cheryl and I, you definitely want this between you and your next color or perm!

If you are concerned with toxicity of colors, this is your best approach to create a barrier as you color your hair. (We won’t tell anyone that you still use real hair color. Some of us have to draw the line somewhere…but come on… that color looks SO GOOD on you, right!?)
