7 Effective Ways To Get Flarp Out Of Hair

Flarp is known as a “noise putty,” that comes in its own plastic container.

When they are pulled up and pushed back down into the container, the flarp putty will make air bubbles’ sound (kids tend to love it).

Therefore, it is also the reason why so many children in the fun process have flarp on their hair.

With most other putties, when flarp gets into the hair, it is quite challenging to remove.

I have encountered this situation with my beloved niece, and I have also gained some useful experience.

In this post, I will share a few things you can do to get larp out of anyone’s hair without having to cut the hair.

How do I Remove Flarp From Hair?

Surely you will feel very annoying when flarp stuck on your hair or the kids.

I’m going to give you something that you can do to get rid of flarp out of your hair with easy-to-find ingredients such as shampoo, conditioner, apple cider, or all available oils and kinds of butter. It worked very well for me.

Things you will need:

  • A cup
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Apple cider
  • A wide-toothed comb
  • A fine-toothed comb


  1. Step1: Pour about 1/4 cup of hair conditioner into your hands and put conditioner into the hair, especially onto the putty and hair strands where it’s stuck.
  2. Step 2: Use a wide-toothed comb in order to comb through your hair gently to remove the bulk of the putty. The conditioner will help loosen the putty from the hair strands.
  3. Step 3: Hold your head with Flarp in the hair over the sink or bathtub and pour a stream of apple cider directly on top of the Flarp putty. This will help dissolve the rest of the putty.
  4. Step 4: Use a fine-toothed comb to comb through the hair to get rid of any last bits of flarp from the hair.
  5. Step 5: Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner to remove all cider from your hair.

  • Peanut butter

You only have to apply one of the oils or kinds of butter available right above to coat small sections of the flarp hair.

Then, use a fine-tooth comb to pull the flarp slowly little by little out of the hair.

What is this Flarp used for?

It can be used to lift prints off newspapers, mold shapes, or make farting noises.

Flarp attracts kids because it makes a noise when air bubbles get trapped inside the dough.

You can use your finger in the flarp, and how you move your finger will determine the difference in sound you can create.

What happens if you eat Flarp?

The product contains boric acid, so it is a risk for children. Compared to adults, children seem more sensitive to boric acid toxicity.

Boric acid must be toxic to children if they are accidentally licked or swallowed.

High levels of boric acid ingestion can have a long-lasting effect on a child’s development and future reproductive health.


Above are a few ways I have presented to help you can use shampoo, conditioner, apple cider, oils, and kinds of butter in removing flarp quickly at home without worrying about having a haircut.

However, it will also cause trouble and take your rest time.

Ideally, if it is necessary to use flarp, after using, you should store it in a place where children can’t find it.

Also, keep an eye out for children as they play with the flarp to avoid the risk of licking, swallowing the flarp, or trapping onto their hair.
