My first Bentonite Clay Mask
So this weekend I decided to try out the Bentonite Clay Mask on my hair. My hair has a really dry texture and I was looking for a way to get some extra moisture in it. I have to say that it looked a little intimidating at first. After all, what could it hurt, so I went to Earth Fare and purchased a bottle of it. I looked at a couple of YouTube video to see how people were mixing and applying it to their hair.
I decided that since it is a new year, I would stop being afraid to try new things. So I mixed it with Apple Cider Vinegar and applied it to my hair. This is the messiest process I have ever done, but after applying I did see the curls come out in my nature hair. I am transitioning so I had two different textures. The curls began to pop right away, which made my heart smile.
After applying the product to my entire head and the product started to harden, I started to panic. This was the last thing I needed, I was trying to put moisture in not take it out. I decided that the damage was already done, so I would leave it on the 30 min everyone was talking about. After I removed the shower cap I had placed on my head, I realized that it had soften up a little. So I rinsed the clay out and to my amazement, my hair was soft and the curls were still there. I have decided to use this in my hair maybe once a month or once every other month.
