Default how to get beeswax out of one's hair?

More specifically, Murray's Beeswax, with ingredients containing Petrolatum, australian beeswax, and fragrance? I've tried washing it in hot water and with shampoo, but theres still plenty left in there

Do you remember that episode of the Simpsons...

...where Lisa gets gum in her hair and everyone puts in their 2 cents as to how to remove it? She ends up with peanut butter, mayonaise, etc. in her hair. Good family fun.

Is cutting your hair an option?

I guess an explanation is in order I was attempting to make dreadlocks, and beeswax is used in order to keep the hair together and help it lock together. I used Murray's, but the petrolatum in it achieves the opposite for my hair, so I need to get rid of it before I try to make dreads again.
Heating it to that temperature is probably not that good of an idea...maybe a last ditch thing or something. Thanks for the response though, any others?

Use an iron and a paper towel.

Don't heat it; freeze it.

It'll become brittle and you'll be able to flake it off.

Either that, or find a razor.

That should do it all right, if not then prepare for the shearing.

Try turpentine or kerosene, that'll probably get it out.

jobberd - multiple shampooings and conditioner and time are the only way to get it out. Pomade has a heavy percentage of beeswax and I used probably more than what was recommended a couple weeks ago. I literally shampooed my hair about 15 times (not including the times I used only conditioner) and there was still trace amounts of it left. It'll take another 2-3 days and shampooings to get it all out.
