WHAT IS ACTIVATED CHARCOAL? AND WHY SHOULD YOU USE IT? (2 days left)
It is charcoal that is specially prepared to become 'activated'. Activated means it has gone through a process to create even more pores and surface area to the substance. Those extra pores make it work even better.
It is loved in skin care because it makes pores cleaner and smaller. The toxins that are floating around us in the air adhere to and begin to clog our pores, this causes complexion issues. In the scalp toxins and clogging can impede hair growth and cause other scalp issues as well.
It is also great for oily skin. If you are struggling with an oily scalp, and not getting the relief you desire with oil treatments, charcoal may be just the thing that does the trick by balancing things out in your scalp. It has the ability to pull excess oil away from the skin. Use it or a charcoal product just once a week to avoid over drying though. As with many things hair related, too much of a good thing isn’t necessarily creating an even better thing.
It can help treat acne, since it is slightly gritty, and offers the gentle exfoliation you need. This gentle exfoliation may help sluff off skin accumulation on your scalp, too.
It’s a great deep cleanser with out being chemical laden. Again, it isn’t needed or recommended as a daily cleanser, as some oil and moisture is essential.
It can soothe skin irritation, too.
Use it to rid your hair of toxins. When used on hair it can pull out dirt, oil and toxins just as it does on skin. It will also add volume to your hair from the purifying action. If you hair is feeling weighed down, that typically isn’t just a feeling but a physical truth. If there is enough dirt, oils, and other grime on your strands, it will weigh down your hair. Regular shampoos are great at removing surface dirt, while charcoal will pull out even more, all without leaving any residues behind, your hair will feel lighter and have more volume and bounce.
Another great benefit of charcoal is it works to remedy scalp conditions, dandruff, redness, oily and itchy scalp's all may be relieved with charcoal, depending on severity and cause.
