    Nail varnish remover (acetone free) is best thing for that! Gets it off straight away

    get some rubber gloves the kind u use for doing the dishes with bumps on the fingertips and get in the shower and massage your head for a while with some shampoo or soak in the bath with your head/scalp in the water then give it a good rub

    Shouldn't use certain types when pregnant but Windex does wonders getting it off skin...It's a tip I learned from a friend who is a hair dresser :)
    With the scalp it should come off with another wash or two... I hope.

    if you have any left over colour put some on a piece of cooton wool and give it a good rub on the bit you have colour on. i know it sounds odd but colour actually removes colour.

    yeah I wouldn't put any of that product in your hair to clean your scalp - it's okay if it's on your forehead or neck and you can put a bit on a cloth... but really... just massage and wash your hair a few times - it'll come out

    i normally use a toner to get it off, or if i dont have any, sounds odd but cotton wool soaked in milk helps aswell.
