What is the Maximum Hydration Method?

By . - Monday, February 08, 2021

I came across the Maximum Hydration Method browsing through various hair boards where women were complaining about extremely dry hair that wasn't responding to regular washing and deep conditioning. 

I have to warn you that this method is not for the lazy natural. This method takes time, but the results have been phenomenal for many women.

What Is The Maximum Hydration Method?

The Maximum Hydration Method is a hair care regimen, typically comprised of five steps, designed to increase moisture levels in the hair until max hydration is reached. 


2 cups Greek yogurt

2 tbsp baking soda

2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp raw coconut amino acids or regular amino acids 

1/2 tbsp raw honey

1 tbsp unsulfured molasses

1/2 an overripe banana

3/4 tbsp avocado

1 egg (optional)


Step 1: Apply Mixture

Apply to dry, detangled hair, saturating it from root to tip. Once each strand is evenly coated, put your hair up into a shower cap and leave on for an hour. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Step 2: Clarify

Apple Cider Vinegar Mix: Add 1 part water to 1 part apple cider vinegar to a spray bottle and apply to hair. Leave the mixture on for 30 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

Step 3: Co-Wash

Step 4: Bentonite Clay Rinse


1 cup bentonite clay

1.5 cups of warm water

1 tbsp of honey

1 tbsp of olive oil

Apply this mixture in small sections and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water thoroughly.

Step 5: Appy Your Styling Products 

How Often Should I Use The MHM?

I believe you should listen to the needs of your own hair. Try this treatment as frequently or infrequently as necessary.
