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

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.

    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?

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

      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.

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

      Archive: Permanent Ink In Hair

      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)

      RE: Permanent Ink In Hair

      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)

      RE: Permanent Ink In Hair

      The same thing happened to me I used nail polish remover and immediately washed it out with cold water this seemed to get it out almost immediately. (11/06/2006)
