I daren't try washing my hair the usual way, because I'm worried it won't rinse out, as there's quite a thick amount [sorry for the gross detail, i feel sick just thinking about it]. Can the hospital do it for me? Or will they just think I'm being a drama queen? I feel like I'll need a really strong chemical cleanser to get rid of it. I have no idea how to go about this. Been hiding my hair under a hoodie all day, so that no-one could see my blood-stained hair. It's at the back of my head.

Do you have a wound you can't get wet? Try taking a fine toothed comb and combing out some of the clumps. Shampoo and conditioner should work, Shy. Your hair is light so it might stain but it will fade soon. Maybe soak in a hot bath. :-(

rofl Things happen. Thanks. Gotta say, it's quite a rock n roll injury to have. But I'm still grossed out by it.

If it has already been soaking in your hair awhile,
I do not think plain old washing will hurt it any more.

But I would get right on it.

Thanks hun ;). I'm scared to look in the mirror at it. I won't be able to comb it, when it's dry, as it's formed a hard clump. So I can only do it when it's wet.

I know, right? ;) The longer I leave it, the more I keep thinking about it.

You might want to try some baby oil first and let it soak for a while, then try combing it and then don't forget to shampoo it. Detangling spray will also work.

Get in the shower, warm water, shampoo, conditioner.

Dried blood is not like super glue or bubble gum.

It will just wash off.

peroxide breaks down blood.. works great getting it out of clothing. Though if you have a wound I would not try it unless your Dr. recommends it.

Update- I've got most of it out. There's just a very tiny dry clump now. I used very hot water, and shampoo, and conditioner. I used medicated shampoo, as I thought it might work on it a bit better. My hair looks ordinary again. At least most of it is almost gone.

Coca Cola is used to clean dried blood from crime scenes.

Shaving your head would work.
