Reader Jarquisha (pictured above) shares a hair discovery;
After doing a detox on my hair using Bentonite clay, my eyes were opened to something I had never noticed before. All of the previous time that I had washed, conditioned, etc my hair, I always had to go through so much to get my true texture to not only show, but remain once my hair dried. That involved many styling aids, mainly Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. Even with that, my hair only lasted for so long before turning into a puffy mess.
Fast forward to my clay detox yesterday (my second time ever). All it took was a 15 minute clay session and NOTHING ELSE to bring out my texture AND maintain it.
I couldn’t understand why this was so until I did some research and stumbled upon Naptural85’s Youtube Video and thus the Terressentials website. This completely BLEW my mind.
So I’ve decided to keep my routine simple from now on: Terressentials shampoo/hair oils, my homemade flax seed gel (courtesy of Naptural85… I just LOVE her!) if I want a sleek style, braids or twists and my trusty coconut oil, shea butter and extra virgin olive oil. I never thought that being Natural could be so simple until now. My wallet (and my hair) will thank me later :)
I, too am a huge bentonite clay fan; what have your experiences been with it ladies? Do you get good moisture and curl definition from bentonite clay? Or did it not work for you? Share your experiences :)
