Keeping it even MORE Simple! ( No Products)

I tried the clay wash last night(see here) and learned that it's best to not use a bunch of products when using this method to wash your hair.  This clay is USDA certified organic so, no guessing.  Side note, I learned from Terressential customer care about a California lawsuit against hair companies that market their products as natural/organic, yet actually use chemicals and synthetic ingredients.  SMH!  I knew this, but two companies that I have used were on this shortlist.  Check it out here & here !!

Anyhoo, as I mentioned before, clay washing calls for no products to avoid buildup, etc and Terressential's highly suggest that you only need natural organic ingredients.  I was recommend oils and butters for my hair, so I have decided to use these products exclusively for 2 months and give this regimen a try.

In my previous post here, about keeping it simple, I was still using a leave-in, styling lotion and several different conditioners for co-washing, thus still suffering from a little PJism, LOL!  But now, my regimen will be product free.  And by product I mean no already concocted hair stuff by a manufacturer.   
What I will use to maintain my hair:

  • Clay Wash ( Rhassoul & Bentonite Clay)
  • Oil or Butter Blend
    • examples: Jojoba Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Coco Butter, Coconut Oil (may make my own mixture or just choose one, I'm not sure yet)
  • Water ( Rosewater, Tap water, Distilled water)
  • Aloe Vera Juice/Gel
  • Flaxseed Gel

That's it, Let see how this goes, fingers crossed!!  I will be going from 11 or 12 items to 5, hmm!  I will start this regimen as soon as I receive my clay wash and get my Devachan dry curly cut!!!

If this works, my pockets will love it, Lol and I will have product I must get rid of!! 

Stay Tuned!

Note: PJism still in effect, now trying to buy up every oil/butter I read about....must fight temptations, LOL!


  1. Jojaba Oil is my absolute favorite! Not just for hair treatment, but for facial treatment too! It always leaves my skin feeling silky smooth =)

    1. I use jojoba as the base/carrier oil for my facial moisturizer. It sinks into your skin so fast yet leaves it feeling incredibly soft. My skin feels like a rose petal since i started using using it---no lie!! I can't stop touching it, that's how soft it is. I am a PJ too so I have been buying other oils (natural and organic, of course) that I add to the jojoba. I like walnut oil and emu oil, meadow-foam, rosehip---to name a few. I go for the ones that help cellular repair and wrinkles. My skin is beautiful since I started using the oils instead of the very expensive skin and face products I was using before. Oh, and I got this INCREDIBLE horsetail butter from Camden-Grey that feels like a dream, next I will try their lavender butter. Both can be used on skin and hair!!! I mix the various oils with raw organic honey to cleanse my face and that's all I need----honey by itself won't remove makeup but when you combine it with the oils it does a phenomenal job. Just LOVE going natural---wish I had years and years ago!!!!!!!!!!
