    Default Softening Marley Hair

    Now that it's winter, I'd like to wear marley twists as a protective style. I've actually been wanting to try them for a while but whenever I feel the hair it just feels really rough and scratchy like it would irritate my face and neck. I was curious if any ladies have tried softening the hair before installing twists? Or maybe you have a method for softening the twists after they're done

    I soak the hair in vinegar before I use it. It kills the itchies for me.

    I soak the hair in water and acv, then shampoo/ co-wash it. I spray it with leave-in condish. Gets the alkaline base off, but I don't know how much softening it does. Maybe a tad. It prevents itchiness, but the hair never gets as soft as I'd like .
