deep cleansing acting like bleach

Hey guys just want to know if anyone has stumbled across this problem!!
I'm trying to remove pink from my hair and i don't want to touch bleach, my hair is quite thin and doesn't take to it very well in dread form, so i tried a deep cleanse on a test dread before i did my whole head.
Problem is after rinsing and rinsing my hair started going all elastic and feeling soggy/ slimey?? it looks and feels like it's been sitting in bleach for hours!
Any ideas why baking soda would cause this?
i really don't want to screw this set up at such an early stage in their life.
