How to get conditioning stuff containing petroleum jelly out of your hair?

I’m white and I got this stuff from the ethnic aisle in Rexall called African Gold Coconut Oil Hair Conditioner. It says it contains Petrolatum… I left it in overnight, and I’m trying to wash it out and its not working too well. How can I get this out while still having the conditioning effects of it?

    this sounds funny, but it works……a little bit of dawn in your shampoo will help to take out the oily feel. i have done this to my own hair, when i once used vaseline as a last minute shine. (i was in jr high). use dawn, its the only one that will not strip your hair. hope this helps
