There are certainly enough suggestions in this post if you take the time to read them. What have you tried?

The hospital clinic I use, they actually have a special shampoo in the rooms shower to wash that gunk out of your hair. Works well. I'll see if it has a name on it as I have my 3rd study Wednesday. Now remembering to get the blobs of it from behind your ears that's a different story. Lol. I went all day nearly after my last one till someone said what's that big booger behind your ear. Lol unreached back and went oops missed some. Lol.

I just used nail polish remover when I had mine done. Tried to take a shower but the guy in the other room was let out before me and used up all the hot water after less then a minute the water went from luke warm to freezing so I rinsed the shampoo out of my hair and said the hell with it and went home to take a real shower. The stuff they used on me was more like a hard crusty glue. Though it all came out with the nail polish remover. I washed my hair with that a few times - paying special attention to any of the crusty spots left behind were the sensors were removed. Then washed it a bunch of times with normal shampoo to get rid of the smell and nail polish remover. I survived :) Wish you luck.

Unless it's a budget sleep center they should remove most of it when removing the wires from you. I've had several studies and they all removed the glue for me - sometimes it smelled fairly toxic so keep that in mind too.

Maturity is the ability to stick with a job until it's finished; the ability to do a job without being supervised; the ability to carry money without spending it; and the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.
