Bentonite Clay Hair Mask Treatment >> Video

I absolutely love Bentonite Clay treatments. I usually do them about once a month and it always leaves my hair soft, manageable, and strong! I also have better curl definition and tons of body! - This treatment was done on unwashed, slightly damp hair as an alternative to clarifying my hair with shampoo. 

The Acetic Acid in Apple Cider Vinegar gently removes product buildup, excess sebum, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Apple Cider Vinegar is also beneficial for treating dandruff, nourishing the follicles, and strengthening hair at the roots. 

You can find Bentonite Clay in most Health Food stores. Aztec Indian Healing Clay is the brand I normally find in stores like Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Vitamin Shoppe.

Bentonite Clay masks are beneficial for:
  • Transitioners and naturals alike that are looking for a gentle way to clarify
  • People who have adverse reactions to shampoo [allergic reactions etc]
  • Those looking for natural alternatives to include in their regimen periodically
Bentonite Clay benefits:
  • Gently draws out oils, dirt, dead skin cells and product buildup
  • Imparts sheen
  • Improves wet-combability [which makes detangling a breeze]
  • Enhances natural curl pattern
  • The nutrients in the Bentonite Clay nourishes the follicles
Points To Remeber:
  • You can do this treatment as often as you like
  • You can use any liquid of choice [herbal infusions, tea, apple cider vinegar, and coconut cream are all know to produce desirable results]
  • For best results, don't let the clay mixture dry on your hair [I usually leave the mixture on for about 20-30 minutes]
  • Because Bentonite Clay draws oils and toxins from your tresses, it is recommended that you follow up with a conditioning treatment to restore a bit of moisture
  • Do not use metal utensils or bowls to aid in mixing the Bentonite, as contact could reduce the therapeutic effects of the clay [due to the chemical reaction of the metal interacting with the clay].
