For an alternative hair treatment, mix the clay with water, add your selection of essential oils (depending on the hair type) and coat wet hair and scalp with clay. Leave to dry and shampoo out (it is not necessary to shampoo beforehand). The white clay or moroccan red is excellent to help scalp conditions and greasy hair.
As a hair mask, it soaks up dirt, cleans hair and scalp. Its antiseptic capabilities stimulate blood microcirculation and gives volume to hair. Wash the clay out thoroughly. For best results use twice a week.
General directions for use
In a glass/porcelain bowl mix 2-4 teaspoons with a hydrosol or water (do not use metal in contact with clay as this detracts from the benefits of the clay). Make a paste to suit your preferred consistency, the thicker the paste the better the action.
If any clay is left over after use, it will stay fresh in a screw top glass jar for up to two weeks. Cover with 2cm of distilled water to keep moist and pour off water before using with your next application. Do not re-use used clay.
For body care mix clay and apply all over the body. Allow to dry, then shower off, following with your favourite body care oil.
