How do I get rid of left over EEG adhesive from my hair?

I just had an extensive EEG w Video monitoring for 3 days at home. The adhesive won't wash off my hair. I have washed it and conditioned it 2 times. I have abrasions from the cleaner they used before putting the leads on and burns from the adhesive (they look like 2nd degree burns and feel like them too). I have a raw scalp and 2 1/2 feet of hair. Help! Any suggestions???

Go to a shop and let them wash it for you. I had that issue also but my hair is short. Good Luck I think you earned a trip to a shop.

try: shampoo, let some baby oil sit in the eeg stuff, shampoo again--repeat several days.
saves going out to get your hair washed. had it once a week 3 wks in a row!!

Lots of conditioner even the cheap stuff put it on run a comb through then your normal wash baby oil makes your head greasy
