My Hair Favorites: Bentonite Clay

 

bree1Naturally hair is hard work. It takes time, consistency and patience. Anytime I come across a product  that makes my life a little easier I instantly get excited. So I’m going let ya’ll in on a little secret that has really changed my hair. Trust me when I tell you, you will see a difference in your hair within one use.

The product that I am talking about is Bentonite Clay. Bentonite clay can be used as a face mask or a hair mask. I have used it as both but I mainly use it on my hair. I leaves my hair feeling moisturized and it’s the best treatment to keep my curls popping.

Bentonite Clay can be purchased on Amazon. I believe I got mine for about $6.99. It’s a very earthy texture. It literally looks like dirt. You can keep things simple and just add water, but I like to add olive oil and apple cider vinegar to my mask. Make sure when you are mixing and using this product you do NOT USE METAL. Metal weakens the effectiveness of the Clay mask. I normally use the plastic bowl that I use for color. You can get one at Sally’s for like $2.00.
Once the Mask is completely mixed I like to apply to wet hair. I do not normally wash my hair before using the mixture because I don’t believe in do that task twice….. no thanks. I also make sure to cover my floor and my sink with a towel because the mask is messy. It cleans up very easy but I always end up making a mess, it never fails.

I like to part my hair in several small sections and work the mask through one section at a time. Its really as simply as that. Once the mask is in my hair I let it sit for 20 to 30 minutes and then I hope in the shower to rinse it out. One I have rinsed the make out I shampoo my scalp only and then deep condition.
I love the way my curls pop after using this mask. I only use it once a month but I would recommend you trying it for your self and seeing what is best for your and your routine. If you are protein sensitive you may want to be careful with this product.
Well fam I hope you enjoy this Mask because trust me it’s a must for me!!! If you want me to review more of my favorites or you have a product you want me to try out check me out at http://www.NaturallyBree.com
