    Ah, the things the little ones can get into. My son used to cut his hair every time it was picture time for something. You just can't take your eyes off them!!

    I have to say I was going to suggest the vinegar rinse as well.It not only removes the oil from teh sunscreen but for all teh years our kids went to school they were made to use the vinegar rinse after every shower to deter lice.We NEVER had any lice and am proud of that fact. It is also good if you want silky hair,just leave in and don't worry the smell will disappear and if you can't stand the smell of the white vinegar you can substitute cider vinegar .We took an old 24 oz plastic soda bottle added about a tablespoon of vinegar to the bottle full of water for them to use each and every shower.

    I just remembered something my sister told me about. When she was in beauty school they made a special deep cleaning solution for their customers. It would get the buildup of shampoo and conditioner out of the hair. It was just baking soda in warm water--about 2T in 1C warm water--and work it through the hair and rinse. You might try that to see if that will work if the other suggestions here don't do the job.

    Hi

    My advice would be to use dish soap, as that will cut the grease and oil from the sunscreen, after you do that, I would recommend leaving some good conditioner in your hair, that will replenish any "natural oils" that you stripped out. Hope this helps.

    Ultimately, what I ended up doing was using canola oil to break up the zinc that was left over then I washed with Dawn dishwashing liquid. After that I rinsed his hair again a couple more times with white vinegar and then a light conditioner. On Saturday I will wash his hair again with a clarifying shampoo and then deep condition his hair. This has been quite an experience and I am going to make sure that we don't repeat it again!!

    hey Mom...it looked like shampoo. I think vinegar will help you might have to do a couple of times.
