When slime gets in your hair, it can be hard to come out without cutting your hair if you do not know the right methods to follow. But this article will teach you the best methods to get it out.
I have gotten slime in my hair as well, and so do some kids at my aunt’s daycare. These methods that I will show you have been used plenty of times and work magnificently. So let us begin getting that slime all of your kid’s hair or your hair. Slime and silly putty have a similar texture, they just have different names.
5 Methods To Remove Slime Out Of Hair
Below is the 5 best method that will remove every slime from your hair. With the methods below, it will work best if you have someone to help you pull the slime out of your hair once the methods start to work on it.
1. How To Remove Slime From Hair With Baby Oil
Oil mixed with slime is a bad combination for the slime. The slime needs a surface to stick on, and if you put oil in your hair when you have slime in, it will allow it to slide right out. Plus, baby oil is great for your hair to add some moisture.
Step 1. Get a bottle of baby oil or olive oil and rub a generous amount in the palm of your hands. Once you have done that, gently rub your hands in your hair where the slime is until you feel the slime coming out of your hands. It might take a few seconds or minutes for the oil to work.
Step 2. Once you have gotten all of the slimes out, make sure to give your hair a proper wash or massage the olive oil in your hair to give it a healthy, shiny look.
2. How To Remove Slime From Hair With Ice Pack
Using an ice pack to get slime out of your hair might seem bizarre. But this method works marvelously because the cold temperature from the ice pack destroys the structure of the slime. Slime doesn’t go well with too much heat and too cold of a temperature.
Step 1. Find a small zip lock bag and put 5-6 ice cubes into it. The reason for the zip lock bag ice cube is that it can bend to the curvature of your hair and freeze the slime stuck in your hair.
Step 2. Once you have made that ice cube pack, place it on the area with the slime for a few minutes until the slime feels hard and can break apart, or it feels like it can be pulled off your hair easily.
3. WD-40 To Remove Slime Out Of Hair
WD-40 is a very multipurpose tool that a lot of people do not know can do things that you have never taught off. Using it in your hair might not seem so smart, but using a small portion of it will do the job if you get it out fast.
Step 1. Use a cotton swab or part of a microfiber towel and wet it with some of the WD-40. Do not spray WD-40 in your hair because it was spread too much and is hard to come out.
Step 2. Once the cotton swab or the microfiber towel is wet with the WD-40, you can lightly blunt the area with it. Do not let it stay in your hair, only wet the area, then start to pull out the slime. Once you have gotten all of the slime out, you must wash your hair out properly with shampoo and conditioner.
4. Washing Your Hair With Conditioner
As mentioned in some of the methods above, slime reacts differently to oil. You might be wondering how it is that conditioner will get the smile out of your hair. Well, to answer that question, you will have to look into why we put conditioner in our hair. The conditioner has oil in it and will loosen the slime in your hair.
Step 1. If you have large chunks of slime in your hair, you will need to pick out the large chunks before you go into the shower to put the conditioner in your hair. You can pick the large chunks over the bathroom sink.
Step 2. Once you have gotten out the large chunks of slime, you need to step into the shower and wet your hair. Pour a generous amount of conditioner on the area where the remaining of slime is, then add some to the rest of your hair. Let the conditioner stay in your hair for 10-15 minutes.
Step 3. Once the time is up, you can brush that section of your hair out, and the slime should come right out. You can also use your finger too to pull it out. Once all of it is out, you need to wash out your hair properly.
5. Rubbing Alcohol To Get Slime Out Of Hair
Rubbing alcohol is a great all-round product that you can use on a lot of things. That includes getting the slime out of your hair. What the rubbing alcohol will do is slowly break down the material that holds the slime together.
Step 1. If you have a spray bottle, you can pour some of the rubbing alcohol in and spray some on the area that has the slime. Again if there is large junk of slime in your hair, pick it out first so that the rubbing alcohol can work better.
Step 2. If you don’t have a spray bottle, wet part of the microfiber cloth or cotton swab and lightly blot the area where the slime is in the hair. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes so that the rubbing alcohol breaks down the slime.
Step 3. Once the time is up, you can slowly pick out the slime out of your hair. If your finger cannot get it out properly, let someone hold your hair in their hand and scrape the slime out with a butter knife. Make sure to wash your hair out properly when you are done.
Having slime in your hair isn’t that dangerous, but it is best to try and get it out because it will clog your hair together. If the slime is in your kid’s here, you will need to get it out immediately because they will be bothered by it and try to take it out their self and break their hair. Immediately follow one of the methods above if it gets in your hair or your kid’s hair.
