If you end up with glue in your hair, there are a few questions that you’re going to have, the first of which will probably be: “What just happened?!”. Once you get out of that phase, however, you’ll probably want to move on to the phase where you actually remove the glue from your hair. If you’re like most people, you want to get that hair back to the shape where you can use an ionic flat iron without experience abject terror, so let’s go over a few removal methods that will get your hair back to normal without causing serious damage.
The Commercial Route
When it comes to a disaster like this, you probably want to go the commercial route first. There are in fact products out there that are specially designed to remove glue from hair, but more than a few people believe that they are way too abrasive and are often marketed to those who are dealing with botched hair extensions. If you’re just dealing with craft glue, you really don’t want to go that route.
Try Shampoo and Conditioner
The quickest way for you to get the job done here is by using a shampoo and conditioner. As luck would have it, we offer some right here in our store, but remember that this will probably take a bit longer. You will need to be patient and gentle with your hair, at least as much as possible. Remember, if the glue has hardened at all, scrubbing too hard is going to have an adverse effect on your scalp, so be as careful as possible here.
Comb it out with Conditioner
This is one of the easier methods of getting the glue out of your hair is to apply conditioner to your comb and then run it from the scalp to the hair ends. You’ll begin to free the glue from your hair, and you will want to continue this process until your scalp and your hair are entirely free.
Use Rubbing Alcohol
It’s a pretty commonly known fact that rubbing alcohol can break down just about anything, and glue is no exception. You’re going to start by applying a small dab of rubbing alcohol on the affected area and allow it to sink in for about ten minutes. The alcohol will begin to loosen the glue, and then you can massage the area with your fingers. Finally, pull out your fine tooth comb, and remove as much as you can. Before you know it, your hair is going to be back to normal.
Getting glue out of your hair is a must before you start using any heat tools, such as your ceramic iron or hair dryer. We’re not going to concentrate on how it happened, but rather that it DID happen and try to treat the problem at hand. Using these techniques, your hair will be back to normal before you know it, and you’ll be ready to use your favorite tools and products once again.
As always there are more methods out there that you’re going to want to try, and if these don’t work for you, there is always something else. Glue in your hair might seem like the end of the world, but trust us, it’s not, and there is clean hair at the end of the glue filled tunnel.
