my husbands a dready painter and he get's paint in his hair sometimes. He usually wears an old tam or bandanna while painting to try to keep it out though. A few years ago he fell off a ladder and dumped a full gallon of paint in his hair in the process. It came out fine after a little while. Was it latex or oil based paint?? Oil based will not come out w/o using paint thinner, which i do NOT recommend pouring over your head LOL! Latex will peel off kinda like plastic but it will take time either way.

when I get paint in my hair I put nail polish remover on a cotton ball and just go over each spot with it and it comes right out. This wouldn't work if you had a ton of paint in your hair tho

yea do what Lex said.....pouring thinner over ur head is not recommended but u can definitely use thinner on the cotton ball and work it out....just make sure it doesnt get onto ur scalp. other thing u can prolly use is surgical spirit (Rubbing alcohol), we also use turpentine to get the paint off our hands but maybe it not a good idea to use it on hair, as it is quite toxic. hope u sort this out soon

cheers
