Clay is good for cleansing and detox which can help draw out a build up that’s left behind from the number of products applied to the hair as well as pollutants in the atmosphere.
What you’ll need:
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Oils: Coconut, Almond, Castor, Avocado, Tea Tree, Olive, Vitamin E
Putting it together:
- 1/2 cup bentonite clay
- 3 tablespoons water
- 6 tablespoons ACV
- 1 tablespoon of each oil **(recommended to start using only 3 oils at a time)**
Your clay should always be a yogurt consistency.
Apply all over your hair. It’s easier to start at the roots massaging the mixture into the roots and working your way down to the tips of your hair. If you have big, luscious and thick hair it may be easier to section off the hair (4-5) and apply to each section for better coverage.
(If you find the clay mixture to be too chunky when applying it to your hair, fill up a spray bottle with water and spray onto sections to loosen it up and make it easier for spreading)
Leave in hair anywhere between 5- 20 minutes (or however long you feel is best)
You can leave your hair your hair wrapped in a towel or even in a plastic bag. You can leave your hair down and let it soak that way too.
You can add conditioner if you like
If you pouring the mixture down the drain when finished, make sure there aren’t any large clumps. Use hot water and apple cider vinegar if needed to help the draining process.
