Bentonite Clay is a great nourishing clay that has many benefits for both your hair and skin. Think of this clay as a hair detox that gets rid of all the impurities in your hair and on your skin. When I use a Bentonite Clay my hair feels really soft and moisturized.
So what is Bentonite Clay exactly? This clay is formed in the earth via volcanic ash and when water is added to it, it reacts like a magnet in our body by pulling all of our toxins out. This is why you may see so many people using this particular clay as a face mask because of its ability to pull all of the toxins out of your skin which cause acne. But did you know that it can have the same affect on your tresses?
When I just want to clarify my hair really quick this is one clay that comes to my mind to reach for. Flourishing Tresses Bentonite Clay has Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E just to list a few ingredients.I don’t usually have time to sit for an entire day and just do a complete hair treatment for my hair. This is a really quick solution for a person that still wants healthy hair but they don’t have the time or energy to put in a real effort.
The best thing to do is add this mixture to your hair when it is semi-damp and get every inch of your head saturated. After the mask is applied I always put a shower cap on my hair and then sit under my hair dryer to make my head hot enough to heat up the mask and really open my pores. If you do not have a dryer to sit under than I recommend putting a shower cap on still but instead do some chores around the house for about 30 minutes to really get the heat to rise to your head. After you have waited about 30 minutes rinse all of the clay out and add conditioner if you want, but it’s not needed as this co-wash has enough oils and butters to make your hair moisturized.
