My Crown of Curls - Bentonite Clay
Bentonite clay, is considered by many as a healing clay and has been widely used. When applied to the skin, it is thought to absorbs toxins and poisons that get trapped in the skin. The clay typically originates from the mountainous Wyoming region and mined directly from the earth. It’s coloring can range from light gray to off-white with little to no odor. It’s filled with minerals and is considered by many to have a shelf life of 4-5 years.
There are two main reasons why bentonite clay has a ton of benefits. First, because it is negatively charged (when combined with water or apple cider vinegar). It draws out toxins from the hair, which is positively charged. Second, it contains many minerals that are essential for hair growth like sodium, potassium, and calcium.
- It gets rid of dandruff: Dandruff forms when a fungus called malassezia infects your scalp. This fungus thrives on the extra sebum that is secreted by your scalp. Bentonite clay soaks up this extra sebum and makes your scalp inhospitable for this fungus, thus preventing the formation of more dandruff. It also scrapes off the dandruff that has already accumulated on the head.
- Aids hair growth: As we mentioned earlier, bentonite clay contains sodium, potassium, and calcium – minerals that are essential for hair growth. But, additionally, it also removes dead skin cells from your scalp and cleanses hair follicles that, in turn, boost hair growth.
- Protects from infections: We’ve already talked about how the negatively charged bentonite clay mask draws out toxins from your positively charged hair. It also cleanses your scalp of oil and buildup. Both these actions combined protect your hair and scalp from bacterial and fungal infections.
- Adds shine to your hair: Besides working as an excellent hair mask, bentonite clay also makes for an excellent hair rinse that adds intense shine to your hair.
My 4c hair was just giving me the world of problems! Tgat was until my friends introduced me to your products. And. MY friends are mad persistent human beings ! So I went and I purchased your clay, elixir and Lavender cream and let me Just tell anyone who hasn't tried them yet... don't even question it .. Get them ! It is worth the time and money. My hair is more defined, it shreds less, it has starred growing and it is much more healthier.
These products are just simply amazing.❤
As a first time user of Bentonite clay, (in my hair), I must say that my experience was deeply satisfying! It was recommended by my sister who has 4b/c hair & she got awesome results!!! So I was motivated to try.
Admittedly, my own hair is 3b/c so rather than it enhancing my curls it gave me such a light clean & airy feeling!!! Was soft to the touch & incredibly bouncy!!!
So much so that a week later, I am still amazed to see that it is still so easy to manage & absolutely tangle free. The biggest bonus being that I haven’t experienced as much shedding as I did in the weeks prior to that.
Just bear in mind that it can have a drying effect so be sure to include your conditioning as usual especially if you have natural hair!!
I also love it as a face mask!!! So an all-round excellent product!!
