Unhappy Removing EEG glue from thick hair?


After an annoying five day V-EEG, I have so much glue stuck in my hair. The problem is that my hair is extremely thick and it won't come out. It took ten washes with a 24 hour EEG. These "Oh just let conditioner or oil sit in your hair for 30 minutes" does not work! I even let conditioner sit in my hair for eight hours last night and it is still in there!
Thanks in advance!

Lots of very warm water and rubbing at the scalp often allows the glue to crumble, and then you can gently pull the crumbled bits down to the ends of your hair. I had a 2 week video EEG and I didn't find the conditioner worked either.

Hi,
I found using a lot of warm soapy water and a toothbrush to scrub the glue off my head and hair was a big help. I had my video EEG for 5 days. Here's wishing you well and May God Bless You!

Water is the only option. Don't trust conditioners.

Well for me I just shaved my head both times. It was less of a headache.

You can also try loosening it with alcohol. Then warm soapy water, a few times until it's out.

That's what I do also. I get it cut short before going in. It helps the leads stay on and makes the glue easier to remove after.
