Full Answer

  1. Prepare the mixture

    Pour 2 tablespoons of shampoo into a bowl and add 1 teaspoon of baking soda. Mix the two ingredients together with a spoon until a smooth liquid forms.

  2. Place the mixture in the hair

    Scoop some of the baking soda and shampoo mixture onto a wide-toothed comb. Comb the mixture through the hair. Continue this process until the mixture is all through the hair. Allow the mixture to remain on the hair for 15 minutes in order to give the baking soda time to break down the hairspray build up.

  3. Shampoo the hair

    Rinse the baking soda and shampoo mixture from the hair. After it is rinsed out, shampoo the hair to ensure that all of the baking soda has been removed from the hair. You may need to shampoo twice. If hairspray remains, use a conditioner on the hair. Normally, conditioner removes the remaining hairspray. Conditioners, especially light cream conditioners, work well to remove styling products from the hair.
