My son is 2 and he does the same thing. I use the wash cloth method. While in the tub, I get a wash cloth very wet, wet his hair with it, put the baby shampoo on the cloth and rub into his hair, then i rinse the cloth, get it very wet again and repeat until the shampoo is gone. He doesn't freak on me anymore.
My dad said my younger sister was the same way and he gave her a hand towel to hold over her face, with vaseline saturated cotton in her ears. She had tubes.
