I’ve discovered my absolute favorite DIY hair masque for my 4c/4b natural hair. I wanted to use it twice to make sure my reaction to the masque was consistent. Each time I’ve used this for my hair I am amazed with how many curls just come out of nowhere as I’m washing it out of my hair. If you haven’t tried Indian Healing Clay/ Bentonite Clay+ Apple Cider Vinegar for your hair, you need to stop what you’re doing and try it NOW!
What You Need:
Apple Cider Vinegar $5
In a plastic bowl or cup, pour a generous amount of clay into the container. Mix about equal amount of ACV to the clay so that it forms a creamy mix.
I used about 40-50% of the jar within one use lol! I plan on using it more sparingly next time so I can at least get 3 uses out of it. I plan on doing the clay masque at least once a month.
How to Use it:
This clay is a cleansing clay and takes out all of the dirt, toxins, and metals in your hair so it’s purpose is more of a deep cleanser. I first section my hair into 4 sections and then start with one section by first making it damp using a spray bottle. Breaking the sections into even smaller sections, apply the mixture to each strand of hair from root to tip. I make sure to massage my scalp as well. Now if you’ve used Indian healing clay as a face masque, you know that it gets really hard and dry fast. But you can feel the tingly and pulling feeling so you can definitely tell it’s working. On your hair it will feel dry at the time but don’t let that stop you from completing the masque. It takes about an hour for me to apply the clay to each stand and I then cover my hair with a plastic bag for about 30 minutes. I use the remaining clay for my face for the last 10 minutes of the time.
After the 30 minutes are up I head into the shower to rinse it out with warm water. The clay just melts from my hair and I can immediately feel hundreds of super defined curls! I can feel my hair super moisturized and with more curls than I ever feel after using any other type of cleanser or even deep conditioners.
Lastly, I follow up with a conditioner to make sure I get any remaining clay from my hair and scalp. I seal with coconut oil to lock in all of the moisture. I am always amazed with the results!
I usually never wear a wash and go because I feel like my curls dry up and get too tangled or frizzy., However, with this masque my curls remained defined and in tact the next day so I finally wore a wash and go. I never knew my hair was this curly and I love that this DIY masque brings all of the coils and curls to light.
Stay tuned for more updates and my very special grad photoshoot coming soon!
As always, remember to…
