So last week I was having some serious scalp issues from the deep-condition I did the weekend before. I deep conditioned over night which was a big mistake, the product build up I had totally cancelled out the shampooing I did. My scalp was flaky and super itching so I asked you guys for some advice and the lovely Ibi from Hey Natural Beauties was kind enough to give me some advice on what I could try to relieve my scalp. Now for the longest time I have been dying to try the bentonite clay rinse , I’ve had it for a good while and use it for facial masks every couple of weeks (amazing stuff btw!) but I want to do a rinse on my hair too because I heard it’s great for lifting dirt from your hair as well as depositing healthy nutrients in your hair. So I decided to try it this weekend to help with my scalp issues and see what it was all about.
Now as you can see from the last picture my hair is not exactly what you call clean. In fact my scalp was even more dirty after this but this could also be as a result of me not rinsing thoroughly enough. You really need to go to town on your scalp with your fingers when you do this. And I should have known this from just using the mask as a facial, this stuff does not come off that easily. So that could be one of the reasons why it cleanse my scalp or perhaps it just wasn’t a strong enough cleanser. I think I should have gone ahead and shampooed first and then done the clay rinse. After the clay rinse my hair was so soft there was no need to condition after! I can definitely see what all the hype is about! I did it on a day old bantu knot without detangling and my hair was fine!
So today I’m going to have to give in and wash my hair, I will be shampooing with the Giovanni Tea Tree Shampoo. So even though the clay rinse didn’t do what I wanted it to do for my scalp it left my hair feeling really soft and moisturised after so I will definitely be including this in my hair regime every couple of weeks!
