DIY Rhassoul Clay Hair Mask
Rhassoul clay can be purchased for about $8 a pound. By mixing the clay with warm water, until it becomes a creamy paste you can create your own natural hair mask. Starting from the back up, apply the mixture to wet hair and cover with a plastic cap. Let the mixture sit on your hair for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing and washing. Leftover mask can be stored in a non-metal container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
For those who want to enhance the benefits of the clay, add essential oils to your Rhassoul clay. For those who want more volume and/or have oily hair, you can simply mix your Rhassoul clay with warm water. Instead of plain water, you can also add tea to your clay and/or oils. The Rhassoul clay mask will also give your hair shine.
