My current obsession is officially the beautiful flower, Hibiscus. The scent, color, and the overall positive results my hair is experiencing is beyond words. So naturally I must share my talents. 🙂
First, here are some facts about Bentonite Clay & Hibiscus:
Bentonite clay is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. Bentonite can be used externally as a clay poultice, mud pack or in the bath and, in skin care recipes. A good quality Bentonite should be a grey/cream color and anything bordering “pure white” is suspect.
Bentonite clay is unique, due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
Hibiscus is a cleaning agent, It also works as a natural hair dye. Heals split ends, and thickens hair. When searching for a good Hibiscus powder, look for a powder that is well grind. Otherwise it may have a gritty consistency, and may not apply to hair very smoothly. Which can be messy. Below I have post where I purchased my powder.
With these properties, there should be no reason why they can’t go work together. So I put them together! 🙂
- 2 spoonfuls of both Bentonite Clay & Hibiscus powder
- add 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
- add a tiny bit water (be careful not to add to much, this cleanser should be a paste consistency)
- 1 spoonful of coconut oil, castor oil and olive oil
- 4 drops of hemp oil
- mix and apply to damp hair.
- leave in for 15-20mins,
- rinse, and condition.
After using this cleanser, hair feels clean, soft, looks shiny, is full of body. I was amazed by the result on my first uses. As well as how manageable my hair was for days. This is a new added routine that I am happy to make time for.
If you need, or want a natural cleanser. Give this try. You won’t regret it.
