Then, repeat the steps of applying the conditioner bar and combing till your hair is tangle-free. Rinse as usual. Lastly, be sure to use a microfiber towel to dry your hair out. An old T-shirt will also do the trick just fine.

If you choose not to add vitamin E, please keep the conditioner bar refrigerated to avoid mold and bacterial build-up.

This bar will last you a good 4-5 months.

You can make your double boiler by using a stainless steel bowl. Place the stainless steel bowl over a container with water.
