Clay Detox on 4C hair

Bentonite clay has been very useful for detoxing the body for centuries. Many naturals use the bentonite clay that has been made for face-masking, but for me I bought an edible one by Pure South Nz even though I was not going to eat or drink it. This clay contains 100% bentonite clay and it’s benefits include removing toxins, heavy metals, for immune defence, clearer complexion, PH balancing etc.. click here to read more. But I thought these good traits might help my hair as well. I would say that any form of pure bentonite clay would work, the brand doesn’t really matter to me.




Starting with dry hair.



I wet my hair to dripping wet.

I then mixed my detangling mix which contained aloe vera juice + apple cider vinegar + conditioner + coconut water.I then applied and detangled my hair thoroughly.





I then washed off my detangling mix. I prepared my ingredients;


I needed raw apple cider vinegar and aloe-vera juice to mix with the clay . The clay is meant to be handled with non-metal equipment because metal interacts with the good effects we are looking for.

I then applied the clay mix straight away, on wet hair and let it to dry onto my hair. I stayed for about 45 minutes  with the clay on my hair uncovered.



I decided to mask my face as well.You will notice that I couldn’t smile on my selfies because the skin was held tight! LOL!

Then…Wash time! Until the water was all clear.

After a few days, stretched hair looks amazing, my hair normally feels light, detangled and just lovely after a clay mask,

I am not a chemist but I know that the clay binds all the dirt and takes with it down the sink!!

Thank you for stopping by! Keep those fro’s slaying ladies!

Until next time
