My first bentonite clay treatment of the year. This stuff really works for 'my' hair, it leaves it unbelievably soft each time I use it.👌 I know this doesn't work for everyone and everyones hair is different.
Before I apply the bentonite treatment to my hair, I do so on wet/damp hair and spritz more (warm) water if I feel my hair is getting dry during the application process.
OIL -I'm extremely generous with my oil choice in my bentonite clay mixture which definitely helps maintain my hairs moisture and maybe assists in the extra softens after rinsing it off. I use EVOO which mixes very well with the ACV and Bentonite clay.
DURATION - Keep the mixture on my hair 20-30mins no longer than that.
MAIN benefits of bentonite clay I've visibly noticed with my hair are that it:
1. Softens hair (leaves my hair feeling so so so SOFT!)
2.Makes detangling easier/faster
3. Cleanses and breaks down scalp buildup (known to get rid of toxins in the scalp)
4. Makes hair appear fuller (as it clumps curls together).
5.Definitely improves the elasticity of my hair (a plus for detangling)
6. Makes my hair much darker like I've dyed it jet black .
7. Defines curls
Amongst a long list of benefits, using bentonite clay has also been known to prevent hair loss and stimulate hair growth👌
I try and do it at least every two weeks if my hair is easily accessible.
