How can you get Super Glue out of your hair?

A:

Quick Answer

To get superglue out of hair, cover the area with conditioner, and comb through it using a fine-tooth comb. If conditioner is not strong enough to remove the glue, try using rubbing alcohol. Let the alcohol sit for five minutes before combing so it has adequate time to break down the glue.

Oils including cooking oils or baby oil can also be used to get glue out of hair. Coat the affected area with oil, let it soften the glue for about 20 minutes before carefully working the glue out of the hair. Thanks to its oil content, mayonnaise is another acceptable substitute.

Mixing baking soda and a small amount of water is another appropriate method of removing glue from hair. After mixing the two ingredients into a paste-like consistency, apply the paste to the hair, and let it sit for a few minutes before brushing it out.

If oil, rubbing alcohol, baking soda and conditioner do not work, visit a hairdresser to see if she has any commercial products that can remove glue from hair. Alternatively, one can cut off the pieces of hair affected by the glue. Depending on the amount of hair affected by glue, a new haircut or style may be advised.
