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.

Reading a old post, what a waste when you can just ask the answer over, and over and over. Never a reason to read! Jim

Mineral Oil Lubricant Laxative: a liquid, I applied all over my head, heated with a hair blower and ran a fine tooth comb thru. I had to do two applications and it took 3 shampoos to remove the mineral oil BUT I am adhesive and itch free. I will adhere to the other suggestion and have a shot of JD just cuz this caused me such stress. :)

Oil interferes with many adhesives, and is used to dilute solvents.
Regular nail polish remover is part mineral oil, as straight acetone is not good to use in contact with skin.
There may be different formulas in use by sleep labs, and providing a removal product
would NOT be too much to expect, considering the cost of these studies.
HINT, HINT.

I just got all mine out with Beekman 1802 Body Wash and their shampoo and condition . I let body wash sit for 15m then rinsed in hot water. Followed by shampooing and conditioner as normal. No residue to extra scrubbing and my hair is super smooth like nothing happened. The products can be found at evine tv shopping or amazon. Good Luck I used ylang ylang and tuberrose flavor.

I recently had a sleep lab test. Best advice, don't wash your hair 5 days prior to test. After test, run a big bristle brush through your hair, run hottest water that you can stand running a comb through hair to loosen goupe in hair, then use conditioner, massage into head, comb through conditioned hair rinse, then follow through with shampoo, and conditioner a second time. Rinse, then while hair is damp, apply a leave in hair conditioner. Mine came out the first washing.

Rubbing alcohol worked well to remove the white paste from my daughters hair. I just put a good amount on a wash cloth then rubbed each spot and it came out with no problem and more importantly no hair loss.
