So my son decided that A&D ointment would make good hair gel. And now after washing it like 8 times his hair is still greasy and nasty. I thought about trying mayonnaise but someone told me it would just make it worse. Any suggestions?

Feb. 29, 2008 at 11:45 PM I second the dish soap idea. My brother has had brain surgery 13 times and it's what we always use to get the ointment from the incisions out of his hair. If you have swim goggles have him wear those. No matter how hard we tried he always got some in his eyes without the goggles.
