Apple Cider Vinegar. I usually use 1 cup vinegar and mix it with 1 cup water (use distilled water if you have hard water). Wash your hair, rinse it well. Pour the vinegar/water rinse over your hair and let it sit. I rinse it out, but you don't have to and your hair doesn't smell like vinegar either way. I only use it once a month.

I second apple cider vinegar although I use a 20-70 ratio but then again I use it every time I wash my hair rather than once a month.

Oh also if you can try and use Braag's/something with 'the mother' in it (sounds creepy doesn't it?). It's a lot better for your hair/skin/insides whatever. ACV is my HG for everything. haha

Or try Herbal Essences Degunkify. It's a clarifying shampoo for either extremely oily hair or hair with lots of build up. I use it once or twice a week to keep my oilness in check but it's also ace at getting out the gunkiest products I've used.

Some swimmers on here recently were saying the baking soda one is good. I just tried the apple cider vinegar deal earlier this week and it was AWESOME!

baking soda makes my hair sticky. Bases can lift the scales on the hair and make it tangle, acids smooth it down. Either baking soda or vinegar will cut the build up, but if you use too much baking soda you can end up with the rougher hair. vinegar is a much easier way to go. Just don't vinegar after shaving!

me too for the apple cider vinegar. most clarifying shampoos will get a normal amount of hairspray build-up out. If you have beauty queen levels of hairspray that are building up in your comb, then definitely the apple cider vinegar followed by a clarifying shampoo and the conditioner of your choice.
