If you're looking for a homemade hair mask that cleanses, detoxifies, removes product buildup and softens all at the same time, I have the perfect product for you.

Bentonite Clay

What is Bentonite Clay and what are the benefits?

Bentonite clay is a natural clay that has the ability to absorb toxins, heavy metals and chemicals, while at the same time dispensing powerful minerals to heal the body. It has the ability to remove positively charged (cationic) conditioners and products that can build up on the hair and scalp. It is also said to have the ability to draw out toxins, heavy metals, chemicals, and impurities. It helps cleanse and lift impurities from the hair, aiding in conditioning, shine, softness, and definition.

Where can I buy it in South Africa?

You can purchase your bottle of Bentonite Clay through Natures Choice for R37.50

WARNING: NEVER mix, store, or otherwise let clays come into contact with anything metal. There is potential for reactivity, and reduced effectiveness.
