Beauty Day: Aztec Indian Healing Clay Wash

Supplies

Raise Your Glasses, Ladies! Today marks the first wash day of the 2012; a year that has so much to look forward to! Since I started the Protect Ya Ends Challenge, I decided to start the year out with my amended monthly routine!

Monthly, I will:

  1. Pre-Poo Oil Wash with Amla Oil, using the finger comb method in 4 twisted sections. Cover hair and let sit for at least 1 hour, usually over night
  2. The next day, apply Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.  Concentrating on the scalp, massage to remove impurities. After 10 30 minutes, rinse thoroughly!
  3. Co-Wash with Cheapy Conditioner (Hello Hydration or any Herbal Essences or even dollar store conditioner)  Omitting this step because I now add the cheapy conditioner to my mix.  See recipe below.
  4. Using a solution of ACV diluted with water, I go through each section and cleanse my scalp using an applicator bottle.
Apply Clay in Sections

My Indian Clay Mix Recipe:

  • 1c of healing clay (adjust to fit your hair needs)
  • 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 c water (or however much you need for your hair to get consistency)
  • 4 tsp of olive oil
  • 1/2  cup of conditioner Cheapy Conditioner (Optional)
  • Plastic Bowl and mixing utensil (or any non-metal item will do)

Combine ingredients until a smooth paste is achieved. (Lumps are typical. For a smoother consistency, use more water).  I lightly misted my hair with water and then applied in sections. After 3o minutes, I rinsed in semi-cool water, and followed up with my deep conditioning routine.

Hair Loss during Detangle

My Results:

1) Scalp is clean and build-up free
2) Hair was mostly detangled, which resulted in more manageable hair and less hair loss! The pic to the left is the amount I lost, compared to the size of a thimble! I was thoroughly impressed.
3) Hair has sheen
I’m off to finish the deed! Will post pics tomorrow for the Tuesday Morning Takedown!
