    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.

    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?

    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)
