What I did was fill my sink with water & put a 1/2 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in the water. I began to rise my hair in the sink. my hair dried pretty quick but once dry my hair was hard, shedding & red. After soaking my hair in Softee coconut oil grease & covering my hair with a plastic cap/satin scarf my hair was fine. But I wasn't happy that it made my hair shed.
