How to do Bentonite Clay Treatment
I started using bentonite clay early on in my natural hair journey to rid my hair of excess product build up. It allows me to cleanse my scalp as well as keep my hair clean from product build up. I also like that this mix can be used as a facial and womb clay pack. Bentonite clay withdraws impurities from the blood and the can be ised to make sure that you do not have any areas that need to be removed. The uses for this treatment are endless you can use it as a hair treatment, a mask or womb clay pack to remove toxins from a particular area. I love to make sure that my henna clay masks keep my hair feeling light and refreshed.
A bentonite clay hair mask will not only remove toxins from the hair, but it will also leave your hair feeling smooth, thick, and shiny. Toxins can build up over time from the environment, from using shelf brand shampoos and conditioners, and even from using hair spray, gels, and other hair care products
Bentonite clay may contain a mixture of sodium, potassium or calcium in varying degrees that are better for internal vs external cleansing. I used Aztec Indian clay which is 100% pure calcium bentonite clay
