Take a shower, wash your hair and comb it out while it's still wet. Also using baby oil on the spots is said to help really well.

Use lots and lots of conditioner. It may take a few washes, but it should come out. Trust me, I had sap in my hair and it came out within a

Lots and lots of conditioner. Try using a leave-in conditioner once you're done washing your hair as well, and brush frequently. It will come out, but if it doesn't, it might be worth going to a stylist for help!

a) what the hell is a paint party!
b) How can I get invited to a paint party?!?!
c) I agree with those above. Use conditioner and baby oil. Peanut butter removes gum apparently...maybe try that? You may also want to go to the drug store and get one of those really fine toothed combs that they use to remove lice...that might help get the leftovers out.

also, shaving your head might be an idea

As it was already said, just try lots of conditioner or baby oil and that should help get it out while you brush...it just might take a bit of time and effort
