Bentonite Clay - Nature's most powerful healing clay rich in scalp soothing minerals, binds to toxins, excess oil and debris. We only use unrefined, sun-dried Bentonite Clay.
Morrocan Rhassoul Clay - Rhassoul Clay contains scalp nourishing minerals of silica, magnesium, potassium, calcium and superior absorption properties. It’s been shown to be effective at detoxifying, absorbing oils and removing dead skin cells. It comes from deep beneath the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The use of Rhassoul Clay dates back over a thousand years, used by those of high status in ancient Rome and Egypt. We use naturally quarry mined, sun-dried and untreated.
Organic Coconut Powder - The vitamins and essential fatty acids naturally found in coconut oil nourish the scalp and help to remove sebum build-up from hair follicles. Our organic Coconut power adds luster, shine and softness to the hair, preventing hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length.
Organic Banana Powder - Banana is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins which help in softening the hair and protects the hair’s natural elasticity preventing split ends and breakage. Banana creates manageability, shine, growth and controls dandruff.
In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp of the powder with 6 tbsp of warm water to freshly activate the treatment. Apply to hair and roots, and let sit on hair for 10-15 minutes under a plastic cap. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water and be amazed!
Tip: For best results apply on damp, already detangled hair and apply to twisted sections. Cover shoulders with towel.
Where in my curl routine does a clay wash go? Before shampoo and conditioning? Instead of shampoo? The clay wash is used to clarify the hair and scalp, in place of a shampoo. One of the great things about using a clay wash is that it's optional to follow up with a conditioner. When used alone it can leave curls soft, shiny, and nicely detangled. Whether you do, or do not follow up with a conditioner is a user preference.
How often should you use the clay wash? It can be used to clarify and condition your hair every 3-4 weeks. If your hair is extra dry, you can use it every 2 weeks.
How much of the formula do I use to wash my hair? Depending on your hair needs and length, you will use an average of 2-3 tablespoons of clay formula for each wash.
Is it suitable for use on colour-treated hair? Clay containing products are not usually recommended for colour-treated hair since the absorption may remove chemical treatments. We recommend patch testing before use.
What is the detox period? A consideration when transitioning to natural cleansers is the use of silicones in many commercial brands. Silicone and other artificial substances coat the hair much like plastic to give it slip and shine. If you have been using commercial shampoos or conditioners containing silicones, sulfates and other harsh chemicals for a long time, your hair will need to detox. The absence of harsh detergents and chemicals combined with the goodness of natural clay means that after three months of regular use, you should find that you don't need a separate conditioner as your curls will naturally feel softer after a clay wash.
How is the clay wash different from other cleansing products? Our Clay Wash is a pure, all natural, clay-based clarifying treatment, concocted with earth's softening clays, sweet fruits and stimulating organic essential oils for curls, kinks and coils. It contains no synthetic petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, sulphates, silicones, surfactants/detergents, soap or wax to leave a residue on the hair or scalp. As the Clay Wash contains no soaps or foaming agents, there will be no lather at all. It is formulated with Bentonite clay, an incredibly powerful clay, possessing a negative charge (anionic). It has the ability to remove positively charged (cationic) conditioners and products that can build up on the hair and scalp. Micro molecules supercharge absorption power, pulling oils, toxins, heavy metals and impurities and stimulating blood flow.
It does double the job: Our clay-based cleanser is the perfect deep clean detox formula that cleans your curls gently, yet effectively while it conditions and replenishes it without stripping curls of essential moisture and proteins.
