Hi everyone. This is basically my fall and winter wash regimen for my 4c natural hair. I do this “no poo” method in between washes with real shampoo and it also helps with dry scalp. I typically shampoo once monthly then use this method in between.
The key ingredient is Bentonite Clay
I mixed it with the following products:
1. Ampro vitamin E oil
2. Queen of Kinks, Curls & Coils Soften Me Tangle-free!” Pre-poo Detangler & Nourishing Conditioner
3. 2 cups of your favorite tea. I used Publix’s decaffeinated black tea.
Basically, I use bentonite clay, conditioner, oil and tea to create my treatment/ shampoo. I mix it so that it has the consistency of a runny moisturizer. The thicker it is, the more clay you will use and the harder it is to rinse out. I like to save on clay, so I make mine thin. Also, it’s easier to apply throughout your hair.
I apply the bentonite clay treatment in four sections and I keep it in for 3 hours if I plan on washing during the day otherwise I will leave it in overnight and finish in the morning.
This is a cleansing, moisturizing routine and it’s a lot like a cowash. It is an excellent detox for the hair and doesn’t overdry it. That’s all there is to this simple instruction for how to wash your natural hair for added
