Impromptu Bentonite Clay Application & Review

Hair before application, my hair is dry.


I have way to much time on my hands of late, so I decided to a Pretty Curls Bentonite Clay treatment on my hair, as this was totally on a whim I didn't have much in stock so I googled some mixtures.
A lot of the online sources mix the Bentonite Clay with Aloe Vera Juice or herbal infusions, I didn't have any of that so I used water, Olive Oil and Pretty Curls Sweet Jojoba Oil.

Bentonite Clay is a sedimentary clay from volcanic ash and is an effective and powerful healing clay full of minerals that are great for cleansing and detoxing hair and skin.

Baby Poo! BIG NO NO DO NOT USE METAL UTENSILS LIKE I DID!!

I think the mixture is suppose to the consistency of pancake mix, mine looked like baby poo (guess I better get used to that!) it took a lot of mixing to get as smooth as possible. applying the clay was very messy and gunky but I managed to get the mixture on my hair in 15 minutes

It was a bit like applying a relaxer....

Half way done

all done!

The finish result looked alot like a relaxer with out the torture of scalp burns! I left the clay on my hair for 30 minutes

wet hair after rinse and condition

washing out the clay was simpler than I imagined and my curls felt nourished instantly and super clean. I conditioned my hair MMMhair conditioner and used Root2Tip Honey Rain Juice as a leave-in, I stretched my hair by smoothing in Root2Tip Twurly Butter then I two strand twisted my hair which I will leave over night.....Now I'm off to order some Aloe Vera Juice so I can use it next time as I'm a Bentonite Clay convert!

Two strand twist

*DO NOT like me use metal spoon or bowl when using bentonite clay as I have now learned it can cause the clay to be less effective! FAIL!!!!!
