More Clay Washing!

I know I have posts about Clay Washing and Hair Detox, but here is an updated recipe of mine and ways to personalize your own recipes!

·         2 Tbsp  Bentonite Clay
·         2 Tbsp  Rhassoul Clay ( Great Conditioner!)
·         10 drops  Lavender, Peppermint  and Lemongrass EO (optional) 
·         1 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel 
·         1 tsp ACV 
·         1 tsp Honey
·         Water -mix until you get desired consistency

Mix all the ingredients in a glass bowl (metal will mess with the natural minerals in clay)
  • Apply to damp hair and massage into scalp.
  • Cover w/ shower cap and let sit on your hair for 15-20 minutes ( do not let it dry)
  • Rinse

Ways to personalize this recipe:

  • Use Aloe Vera Juice/Hydrosols/Coconut Milk/ Herbal Infusion(leaves, flowers)/Decoction(roots, bark) in place or in combination with water
  • Add Herbal Extracts
  • Add 1-2 tsp of light oil ( sesame, avocado, jojoba)
  • Add veggie glycerin in place of honey
Use any left overs for a facial!!

I prefer my mix to be thicker, but some like a more watery consistency so play around with the amounts of clay used until you find your desired mix!
