Removing permanent marker from your hair poses a bit of a challenge, due to the porosity of the hair. Run the cloth over your hair until all traces of color are gone. Pump hairspray works best in this situation, as it allows you to remove the lid and pour the hairspray onto a cloth. One caveat of using Sharpie markers is that the permanent ink will not wash out, nor will it fade over time. One additional effect of the Sharpie on hair is damage caused to the hair, as the hair underneath the marker will dry out and potentially break off. Washable markers are exactly what they say they are: washable! They will not stay in any hair type permanently. Sometimes it takes more than one washing to remove them, but they will definitely (eventually) come out. It doesn't matter if it's Crayola or not, but if it want it for sure to come out, use washable markers. Leave it in for a while (if you leave it in for 24 hours, that is great). After you put it in, rub some regular conditioner on it and leave it. That is going to make it last longer. While protein-based, natural human hair is easy to color and holds dye easily, synthetic hairs, like those used in dolls, wigs, and hair pieces, is a bit harder to tint. Permanent marker ink, like that found in Sharpie pens, makes an effective, vivid, and easy-to-mix dye well-suited for this kind of coloring.
