I desperately need some help!
Dd does a lot of swimming and the hairdresser recommended using a leave in conditioner. I got a coconut oil one but think I used far too much . Now dd's gorgeous hair looks like you could fry chips in it . I've tried washing up liquid as recommended by someone and its helped a bit but not enough.
PLEASE PLEASE what can I do? Dd went to school with it today but I'd really like it to be normal tomorrow.
this may sound odd and not sure if you've tried it but put the shampoo on BEFORE you wet her hair..........this is what you are supposed to do to get particularly stubborn styling products out (like heavy wax).
so on dry hair put some shampoo on and comb it through.........try and rub it in if you can and then rinse it, and reapply shampoo to wet hair.
another trick is to put talc onto dry hair and leave it for a while and then wash hair.........it should help soak some of the oil off the surface of the hair.
Fabulous, thanks guys. The conditioner resembled the "Black and White" hair goo that dh uses.
Anyway, I used washing up liquid on dry hair, wrapped it in a turbietowel for a while then washed it out with some crappy shampoo. (Don't have any of that de-gunking shampoo as I don't use any products). Its looking loads better now, certainly will invite no comment from school friends tomorrow
