Gorilla glue is one of the most difficult glues to remove once it has dried. The ability to hold is one of the selling points. Using a hot oil hair treatment can often help remove the Gorilla Glue. I recommend leaving the treatment on longer than the directions indicate, 1/2 hour or more will be needed. Actually my wife got some in her hair last week. She applied WD40 heavily her hair, but I cannot recommend doing so for legal reasons. Either process will take time for the hair to absorbed the oil. The trick is to get the surface the glue is applied to saturated with a oily product to lessen the grip. The removal will not be easy. There are no products made to remove these polyurethane glues. I have heard of using Vaselines to aid in the removal. My wife did get it out and after washing here hair there was no evidence that the Gorilla Glue had ever been in her hair.
