Recipe for getting olive oil/conditioner OUT of your hair?

I tried the olive oil/conditioner deep treatment this morning and it was a partial success... my hair is incredibly curly, but it still has a lot of oil residue in it so it's oily rather than shiny. What's the correct recipe for removing the excess oil from your hair?

I did:
2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons conditioner, 2 drops lavender oil

stroked onto dripping wet conditioned hair and wrapped in a tshirt turban, then allowed to air-dry for two hours. (it was going to be all day but DH rang up and told me he was coming home to pick me up to go shopping! Cue emergency hair-wash...)

Attempted to remove with vinegar rinse (2 tablespoons white vinegar, 2 cups warm water) but it didn't take much out...

So I tried a lemon conditioner treatment - 2 tablespoons conditioner, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon water to make it runny...

It didn't get it all out. What can I wash my hair with tomorrow to get it all the way clean?

2b/3a - fine but lots of it
goals- to grow hair to bsl, maybe a tad shorter. to learn to love my hair :S
just use a little shampoo? or an ACV rinse?

shampoo is my first thought - if you are on CG then

baking soda rinse and/or acv rinse
that will definitely take it out - be careful of drying it too much

a little non-sulfate shampoo. 1:1 ratio of oil to conditioner is way high. Maybe 1:4 if you try it again?

I've used lots of oil before, but it takes lots of finger scrubbing to get it out. I can get it out with just a co wash, but again, lots of scrubbing and rinsing.

I pulled it out with baby shampoo... but then I had to start from scratch because ALL the oil was washed out of it. I'm going to try again soon using much less oil in proportion to the conditioner - it was just far too heavy for wavy hair.

To follow up on this, the "Lemon-Aid" should've had the juice of at least half a lemon (the real recipe calls for a whole lemon), not 1 tbsp, if allowed to rest on the hair a little bit after working it well I'm pretty sure it would've gotten more of the oil out without stripping it all out like shampoo would.
