Have you ever heard of washing your hair with clay? Clay is actually really beneficial for your hair, just as it is when applied to your face in a face mask or when used in a DIY deodorant. It detoxes and leaves your hair shiny and clean with lots of volume. Here we use kaolin white clay as a base for our natural shampoo paste, which you can use in place of conventional shampoo. It is particularly good for those with fine or naturally oily hair, as it leaves the hair nice, clean and voluminous, but not too dry. It also works for those with coarse or frizzy hair for its ability to tame the hair. Depending on hair length. This recipe makes enough for approx 2 applications.
Mix all ingredients together until you have a smooth lump free silky pliable paste. If it's too thick, add another teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
Scoop into a small glass jar ready for use.
How to Use
Massage into damp hair, from roots to tips until well coated. Let it sit for 2 minutes then rinse out thoroughly with warm water. Blast with cool to cold water to seal the hair cuticles. Gently towel dry as normal and follow with a herbal conditioning hair spritz if desired. Use within 2 weeks. In may thicken between uses, and if it does just add some water to it.
