Then you will dry them and get the result of the first pic. Innit.
If you want to stay natural, just accept the Afro. Otherwise get a weav-on!

It really doesn’t go back to the result of first pic. It’s not a relaxer like the lady claimed but it makes curls way more defined. Bentonite clay is also the Magic ingredient of the maximum hydration method which reveals all curl patterns even on 4c hair types.

Stephanie Eustache Marline François I do this once a week or 3 times a month ladies. Try it out!

Lovely Licia

I’m confused, does it make your hair more curly or it’s a cleanse?

Angelia Wilford would you use this? I don’t know if I trust apple cider vinegar sitting on my hair.

Sierra Wright

It’s great for cleansing your hair. I wouldn’t use it often because it strips your hair of its natural oils but if you pair it with the bentonite clay and a deep conditioner like in the max hydration method your hair will be fine

Kenyatta Williams

It’s wonderful. I agree with Sierra, use it sparingly to rid your hair of product build up. Must use with a deep conditioner/ moisturizer.

Alejandra Montanez

Apple cider vinegar has anti fungal properties, so it’s great for your scalp.

Toy Jaynell

If you’re 4c texture the dickie method is the best thing you could do.

Lovely Licia

What’s that?

Toy Jaynell

It’s a method done in the shower that brings your curl pattern 4c and it works for me.

Lovely Licia

I’ll check it out, idk what my curl pattern is. How do you find out?

Lovely Licia here is an easy chart you can use to determine your hair type

Girl i WISH i could get my curls like that, the back is, but the front has more heat damage so it’s straight

Shawntay Orr

Angelia Wilford

Shellisa Williams I don’t know about all that.

Bernadette Maame Gyamfua

Missy Law

Bernadette Maame Gyamfua

ShiShi Maze

in the South it’s called white dirt that’s eaten, it’s usually sold in corner stores

Tishawn Fortner

They eat that in Haiti too I think.I read they eat mud but I don’t think that’s true.

Cormisha Cotton

How do I find out what hair texture I have????

Sarah Louise Augustin

Not really like relaxer it just smoothes out your curls so they are more uniform and less frizzy

Hummmm Shara LovingLife Patrice West

Shara LovingLife

Patrice West

‘Like a relaxer for curls’

Angela Camille

LaTamara Taylor another use for the bentonite clay you introduced me to!

Simcha Ruth

Where do you buy the clay?

ShiShi Maze

I’m 4B from everything I’ve seen…the ACV by itself as my rinse before my leave-in conditioner is makes my softness and zigzags pop back. I’ve tried both mixed but no real difference and it was a little tuff getting the clay^ACV paste of my hair.

Yairia Keys

Where can I buy this clay at??
