  • I wouls try to get a shampoo designed to clarify the hair. They usually will get all the gunk out of the hair like hair spray and wax. This might work. I am sure they have shampoo designed to do what you need. DONT SHAVE HER HEAD!

  • Do not put anything else in her hair. Just keep rinsing it out with warm water. After you've done this about three times with no left over suds, then use a shampoo without conditioner to wash the remains out of her hair.

  • Ask the pharmacist. Good luck! I am leaning toward the repeated shampoos, also.

  • Peanut butter gets gum out of the hair because of the oils in it. Try oil! Vegetable oil, mineral oil, whatever you have. I use olive oil because it puts moisture back into things and improves the elasticity. I know this from waxing other people, and myself.

  • hello, i am a hairdress and work with wax all the time doing different waxes. I have gotten wax in my hair. Sally beauty supply and possibly wal-mart has wax remover. It would work on her hair. I can tell you though, it feels just like baby oil so try that as well. For sure though the wax remover will work but youll have to be very patient and take a lil bit out at a time.
