Clean Up Tips for Skin and Hair

  • Dust off or blow off as much powder as possible before you jump in the car or plop down on your white sofa!
  • Color powder washes right out! Just take a shower, grab a bar of soap and some shampoo and you should be set! In our warehouse we use Dawn dishwashing soap – it seems to do the trick on washing it out of skin.
  • If you have light colored hair – sometimes the colors can have a little bit more staying power! It will wash out in a few days. We say wear it loud and proud! But if you have prom the next day and you don’t want blue streaks in your hair, then you may want to wear a hat or try oiling your hair with coconut oil before the race.
