I have superglue in my hair. This will be day 3, I think.
I really have no idea how it got there. I was working with superglue the other morning, a couple hours later I was in the shower without incident, I do my hair, I get dressed, sit down. A few minutes pass and I suddenly feel like the side of my forehead is sticky. My hair’s sticking to it. I pull the hair away and suddenly it DRIES. Into a clump. Near my scalp. I really, really don’t want to cut it.
I’ve scoured the internet for remedies and tried:
-acetone-based nail polish remover
I kept hoping it might somehow fall out on its own but there has been no change. Help!
(PS I hope this is the right board!)

I read this from a blog from 2005. I hope this helps and good luck!!
“I’ve been able to get super-glue out of people’s hair by GENTLY breaking-up the mass of dried glue by squeezing the hardened mass between regular pliars. After the mass is softened-up from the pliars, TAKE YOUR TIME and GENTLY keep making the hardened area’s softer by manipulating it between your fingers and SLOWLY & GENTLY sliding the glue off of the hair strand. (This works best with fingernails that are just past the tips of fingers and protected with nail laquer. A small-tooth comb can help as well.)
The main trick is to do everything SLOWLY & GENTLY and do it on DRY HAIR. Wet hair will break easier. You may use a oil-based conditioner first and leave it in the hair for a day or two to also help soften up the glue. But be sure the hair is completely DRY before trying to work it out of your hair!!”
