    I would suggest getting purple highlights and pretend like you did it on purpose. Or maybe it's in a place where a haircut will remove it?

    You can try a small amount of dawn dish washing soap and warm water.

    I have a problem. I was bored and got blue Sharpie in my hair and I can't get it out. My mom will freak out when she sees my blue hair and if I don't get it out by tonight or in the morning I will be going to school with blue hair and I will be known as Sharpie girl. Any advice or tips on how to get this out?

      I put pink, purple, blue and black sharpie in my already highlighted/colored blonde hair for colored highlights. (I know I'm an idiot). So far, I used dish soap, shampoo, vinegar, "oops" hair color remover, fingernail polish remover without acetone, and alcohol. NOTHING will get it out! Any more ideas people ? Please HELP

      You can use coconut oil! :) Just saturate and wipe down the hair piece with coconut oil, then wash that area with shampoo.

      You might have to let it grow out or color all your hair with the appropriate type of color.

      I currently have sharpie in my hair.

      Its red and I thought it looked cool and I noticed after one wash it was fading already so I applied more. Well its been about 1 month and it still hasnt come out.

      I don't know how to get it out but I talked to my father and he said that Sharpie has acetone in it and acetone is a thinner so he said eventually my hair will fall out.

      So if I were you I'd stop wither the sharpie once you get it out.

      Does sharpie make your hair fall out?

      Editor's Note: I don't know why it would but I suppose it is possible.

      I put sharpie in my hair[my hair is brown] and after a couple of washes with shampoo it will come out. It just seems to get all over your towel.

      Can you get red Sharpie out of brown hair? It's been in for a while now, but I want it to come out now! What should I do?

      Try saturating the colored hair with rubbing alcohol. You might have to apply more than once - it dries very quickly.

      If the color comes out, you need to wash your hair afterwards.

      My friend said she wanted to color my black hair with a silver Sharpie. It's been in a day; I think I got one side of it out, but there is still some in. How do I remove it?

      Keep shampooing daily and it will eventually be gone. ;-)

      Can someone suggest anything for removing permanent purple ink from bleach blond hair? A friend of mine who has waste length hair, picked up a marker to hold her hair up in a bun... Unbeknownced to her the cap came off and leaked a nice big extremely conspicuous blotch of ink in the middle of her hair. She tried washing it out with shampoo but it didnt have any impact on the stain.

      Lemon juice might help. Section off that strip. and then use old cloth with hair sandwiched in between and blot like. Call a local beautician also. (10/08/2005)

      The only thing I know that will definitely take it out is nail polish remover. But, I don't know if this will damage her hair. (10/10/2005)

      Nail polish remover will work, but must be the kind WITH acetone. Good luck! (04/27/2006)
