The Ginger Clay Mask
“The Ginger Clay Mask” acts as a natural humectant and detox, keeping your hair moisturized and cleansed. The mix is also great for thickening thin hair and contains zinc-which increases scalp stimulation and strengthens your hair’s protein structure.
What You Will Need:
• 1 Tbsp. Jamaican Black Castor oil(affiliate link)
• 1 ½ cups of Bentonite Clay(affiliate link)
• 1 Tsp. of Organic Ginger Root Powder(affiliate link)-
• 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar(affiliate link)
• Stainless steel bowl and spoon
►Before you pour the Bentonite Clay(affiliate link) into your bowl, determine how much mix you will need for your hair depending on its thickness and length. I have mid-back length 3c/4a hair, so I use about 1 ½-2 cups of the clay powder as base for my mix.
►After you pour the clay into your bowl, gradually pour in the apple cider vinegar(affiliate link). If you see the mix begin to bubble, do not be alarmed-it is supposed to do that. Also, the more vinegar you apply, the easier it is to rinse out.
►You can either apply the mask to your hair after you’ve sectioned your hair off and detangled or section your hair, apply the mask, and then detangle. Either way, your hair should be dry before applying the clay.
►After you apply the clay mask to your hair, let it harden on your hair. I suggest washing it out with warm or hot water and then rinsing with cold water to keep your hair from drying and frizzing.
