Work gently down hair (may not be bubbles), rinse well. Repeat application (very important). Rinse for several minutes with warm water, massaging scalp, to get all soap out of hair. A vinegar rinse (50/50 vinegar/water or all vinegar) will help remove residues from scalp and hair. Leave vinegar in hair several minutes, then rinse out. It will take 8-20 washings to get the chemical residues out of your scalp. It will be months before all of it is out completely. Most people will not need conditioner.Very dry or course hair will benefit from a toxin-free conditioner.
