How to use Bentonite Clay in your hair?


Yes! Bentonite clay is pretty much the greatest find since waterproof mascara cream but you do need to take care when using it to ensure you don’t mess up your hair or your bathroom!

  • Do not use a metal bowl or spoon when making your bentonite hair mask. Bentonite clay draws out metals and toxins out of whatever it touches and will transfer that to your hair, You are safer using Plastic, glass, porcelain or wooden items.
  • Make Sure to thoroughly rinse all the clay out of your hair with warm water before it completely dries.
  • If you doing this over a sink pour hot water down the drain after washing off the bentonite hair mask to avoid drain blockage.
