Question How to get out the EEG glue?

My sister had some seizures from taking demoral. Dr ordered a EEG just to make sure that was the cause. The probes were attached with some kind of glue, 2 different tubes mixed together. The glue is stuck in her hair,, short of cutting it does anyone have any suggestions to get it out.. Thank You

Re: How to get out the EEG glue?

fingernail polish remover and combing.

washing your hair MULTIPLE times helps as well.

apply the fingernail polish remover directly on where the glue is using COTTON BALLS, let is sit very briefly, then try to comb it out if it can lighten the hold of the glue; and wash hair with shampoo. REPEAT process as needed.

USUALLY this is a pretty good remedy.

Unless others have been found better ways around...


BTW, I say apply it that manner to try and avoid irritation to your hair and more of the scalp. Other substances may work as well (isopropa may work) but they could irritate or be annoying more I think.

You could also try letting the shampoo SIT IN for a few minutes before washing it out and see if that helps loosen it.

good luck getting MOST of it out... all is not a guarentee right away.

Hi - I have medium-length hair and what I did was shampoo my head up in the shower and just leave the suds on there while I got out, brushed my teeth, got dressed, etc. Rinsed with warm water several times and almost all of it came out.

Also consider trying some vegetable oil on the scap and let it sit and warm to the body's temp. Then wash & comb with shampoo.
