I put shea butter (Palmers Shea Butter Formula)on my dry hair and left in overnite. That was yesterday...I have shampooed my hair more than 10 times with almost anything i can find..regular shampoo, clairifying shampoo,oily hair formulation, dishwashing liquid, castille soap, etc. Nothing is taking this matted greasy feel out of my hair!! Any help would be sooo appriciated!! :(

Oil dissolves oil. So, maybe try using a deep conditioner with a heat cap for 20 minutes. Then, shampoo once again with your regular shampoo. :D

When that's happened to me, I've rinsed really well with hot water, shampooed and conditioned (left the conditioner on while I did other shower stuff), and rinsed well with hot water again. I find that the hot water is the key to getting it out of my hair. Fortunately, if I have enough shea in my hair to have to go through this, it tends to protect it a bit from the shampoo and hot water.
If that doesn't work, there's grease-cutting dishsoap. :(
If all else fails, there's the option of just slicking it back in a bun and washing it daily until it returns to normal.
Let us know how it goes.

tym! I'm glad to see you :D, but sorry it's under these circumstances! :-(
I was looking at Palmer's at the store the other day and saw mineral oil second on the list of ingredients. :shock: Could that be what's so hard to get out of your hair? Perhaps you could try mixing some baking soda with your shampoo 50/50 and gently wash your hair with that. I freed my hair from the bondage of shellac, er, excess hairspray over the weekend doing that.
I hope you find something that works for you, tym!

The same thing recently happened to Igor with Palmers, her post is down the page a bit under "Hair Blooper". In case you missed it, here's the link: http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/viewtopic.php?t=9182 HTH :)

I second the oil idea. You may want to try a deep treatment with a heat source with either Jojoba or Olive Oil. That was my first instinct. If it doesn't workl, at least it won't have done any more damage.

I have just had quite a battle getting an olive oil based product out of my hair :( :twisted: after six or seven shampoos I lost count.I let it dry then worked a lot of conditioner through it and rinsed.It is mostly out now.This also happened to me in 1987 I finally got it all out after three days.Big hugs :grouphug:
