I will share with you my current hair “shampoo” or Clay wash. I’ve been using a clay wash these past months, and I love the results on my hair. It leaves my hair shiny; it deep cleanses the hair and scalp, restores my hair; it’s all-natural and affordable.
This DIY shampoo is amazing for a deep wash and will leave your hair feeling fresh and clean!

I tried different recipes and this one is my favourite so far. The combination of ingredients leaves my curls defined, smooth and shiny.
¼ Rhassoul Clay
¼ Bentonite Clay*
½ cup Apple Cider vinegar
¼ cup Water
1 cup of Aloe Vera Juice
2 tbsp Glycerin
2 tbsp Ayurvedic or any oil of your choice
10 drops Peppermint essential oil
10 drops Rosemary essential oil
1 plastic funnel
*Please note you should use plastic tools with Clay. Using metal tools will reduce the healing properties of the Bentonite Clay.
Let the mixture sit for 15-20 minutes, allow any lumps to dissolve, and all the ingredients combine.
Part your hair in four sections, apply the clay to your hair, from your tips to your scalp, and massage.
Let it for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and apply your desired conditioner.
