Alternative Method:For tougher hair grease jobs you can apply a little bit of Dawn dish soap to the mess. Use a similar massaging technique as you would when normally washing or scrubbing your hair and scalp.
However, in this case you should wet your hair before application of one or two tablespoon full of the liquid. Then, you should massage the detergent in as well as possible.
