I tried something new this morning and it worked really well. I know a lot of people like to rinse upside down, but I just couldn't make this work comfortably in the shower. So after I put cond in my hair, I put it up in a french twist with a bear claw clip and put a shower cap over my head (this gives a mini treatment), then I dried off, and got dressed. Then when I was ready I rinsed my hair in the kitchen sink (nice deep sink, with hight faucet, and a water filter). This made rinsing upside down very controlled and easy. I was also able to do a cold final rinse without freezing.
