How do I use ApHogee 2 step treatment

So I read the instructions but was confused about how long I should leave it on. Do I leave it on until my hair dries?

Any other suggestions about using this? Thanks, Melanie

    I used my hand dryer until my hair was completely dry before rinsing it out. Not sure about air drying.

    I think you want the heat from the hair dryer! It says to use it under a hood or a hair dryer.

    If you have very long hair, and you're gonna jump into the shower at one point, make sure you take your shirt off BEFORE you make it like a helmet heh. My hair is so short it doesn't make a difference for me. I can remove my shirt without agitating my hair.

    DEFINITELY use a hood.

    I have short hair (like a couple inches above my shoulders), and I thought I could just let it air dry-yeah, after 6 hours, I thought to heck with this.
