lol That was a fun time….getting my hair back to normal.  I kept my style up the next day since we got up early to go on our honeymoon.  When I finally did take it down, I shampooed about 3 times, then put in some conditioner, let it sit for a few minutes then rinsed.  I also used a leave in conditioner for a few days.

I just shampooed a few times, lots of conditioner, and it was fine the next day.

It was pretty easy for me. After we got back to the hotel, I took out all of the bobby pins and the rubber band they used and then I went to bed. The next morning I took a hot shower and just let the water run over my hair for a while and washed it like normal.

@FromA2B2013:  I left it overnight, but I did have to shampoo my hair about 3 times (because my hair is so thick) and then conditioned only once.

I was too tired the night of to deal with it and just took all of the pins out of my hair and fell asleep. Sunday morning I conditioned three times and ran a comb through it to get the knots out. I’m still finding knots though almost a week later.

I haven’t had my wedding hair done yet, but from years of theater experience (that much teasing is no picnic) and fond(ish) memories of Prom and High School graduation, my trick was always to condition first to get out the big tangles and then shampoo usually twice before conditioning a second time.

I had the help of 3 people to remove all 163  hair grips ahhh the relief was amazing lol and then left it till the morning when the hairdresser advised me not to attempt to brush without washing, so run the hot water over and washed as normal.

Not married yet, but I had a trial and my hair was like that! I think I pulled out 80something bobby pins and then took half an hour combing conditioner through my hair in the shower to get out all the back combing and volumizer in it! It sure stayed put well though 🙂

It’d probably be a good idea to get a bottle of clarifying shampoo to help get the product out. I know that Herbal Essences has a version (Drama Clean), and other cheap lines do, too.

@FromA2B2013:  I shampooed a couple of times and conditioned as usual. The tough part was brushing. I brushed while the conditioner was still in then as usual afterwards. There were lots of knots from the curling and teasing.

I took out fistfuls of bobby pins and went to sleep.   The next morning I brushed it out, which was fairly easy.  It actually looked really cute and wavy so I didn’t wash it and wore it down and curly for the day.   In the evening I washed as normal.
