How to use green clay on hair?
Here are the steps to regain healthy hair and a healthy scalp!
It's all about the clay-water mixture. Mix about four tablespoons of green clay powder with lukewarm mineral water in a bowl until you obtain a very smooth, even elastic paste.
Little tip : add a spoonful of honey to your mixture, this will prolong the elasticity and humidity of the mask. Then, you are free to personalize your dough. After all, who knows your hair's needs better than you?
You can add a few drops of essential oils.
For example, you can use lavender oil (healing and regenerating), rosemary (revitalizing) or sage (hair growth). Tea Tree oil is recommended against dandruff , while Yilang-Ylang oil will fight against hair loss while restoring shine to your hair. You have the choice !
Take a good dose of clay in your hand and apply it directly to your scalp .
Distribute the preparation evenly over your entire head, and above all, do not touch the ends!
In fact, the latter are often already very dry or even brittle, so avoid the potential disaster. Therefore, choose an oil for the ends , such as linseed oil or almond oil , which strengthen and repair this brittle hair.
So back to our clay. Once the mask is applied, gently massage your scalp , then leave for around twenty minutes . It's time to relax and take care of yourself.
Besides, did you know that green clay can also be applied as a facial mask?
