How I Used Bentonite Clay On My Natural Hair

Hello everyone!

I took down my marley twists after four weeks as opposed to six weeks which I had previously planned. I had recently bought bentonite clay and I could not wait to use it on my hair.




The first thing I did was to detangle with African Naturalistas Moisturizing and Detangling Conditioner. As always detangling was blissful. I was also glad that I didn't loose too much hair.

Next, I made my bentonite clay paste which comprised of
Apple Cider Vinegar 
- Aloe Vera Juice 
- Coconut Oil 
- Lavender Oil.

I mixed everything together to make a paste which was a tad lumpy and applied it to my hair. After which, I covered it with a shower cap and satin bonnet and I went ahead with my business. An hour later, I rinsed out with cold water. Can I just say that I absolutely loved the results?

My hair was squeaky clean, soft, moisturized and well defined. My 4a coils were literally popping. I knew I could get used to this every wash day. So, I finished up with a chamomile and black tea rinse. After which I moisturized with the LOC method using Profectiv Mega Growth Daily Leave-in Strengthener, my oil mix and whipped shea butter.


This is easily one of my favorite wash days in long while.

Have anyone used bentonite clay before? How was your experience?

Love, coils and curls

    2. Don't worry, we shall get there.
      But I tried something that helped me detangle in a little less than an hour.
      Just soaked my hair with water and conditioner and the comb was breezing through, little no tangle.
