I'm really enjoying my natural hair journey. I'm learning that some products work for my hair and others don't, there are hits and misses but overall I've mastered some techniques that work for me. A new regimen that I've learned that my hair absolutely love is using a clay mask treatment. I got the chance to try out the Zakia's Morocco Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder and it really changed my mind about the way I treated my hair.

Ghassoul clay also known as Rhassoul clay is a  natural and organic clay from deep inside the Ancient Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The clay has cleaning, detoxifying, toning and rejuvenating properties which will leave your hair and skin feeling brand new. Ghassoul is a mineral rich, light brown clay that blends extremely well with water making its application to the face, body and hair. It's also a great soothing treatment for dandruff and psoriasis.

I did my research and found out the Ghassoul clay is a great softener and moisturizer for hair.  It removes products build up and toxins from the scalp, as well reducing dry hair. I decided to make a D.I.Y clay mask recipe of my own. I must say this recipe came out really good *pats self on shoulder*. To make the clay mask for my hair, I used:

  • Zakia's Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder
  • Water
  • 10 drops of Peppermint Oil
  • 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • 1 Glass Bowl (Do not use a metal bowl or metal mixing utensils) 
  • 1 hair applicator brush 

 Once I was done mixing all of the ingredients, I sectioned of my hair. Before I applied the mixture, I lightly misted my hair with water so my hair will have some slip when I applied the clay mask. I applied the clay mask to each section of my hair, making sure that it was completed covered. I left it on my hair for about 2 hours while I did some house work, but I recommend leaving it on for at least 30 minutes. 

I washed out the clay mask and I was amazed! My hair was stretched, elongated and my curls were super defined. My hair and scalp felt amazing. I will be doing this ever month or ever other month because it rejuvenated my hair. Zakia's Morocco currently has this powder on sale for $10 here. I believe that this is an amazing treatment for natural hair and you should try it atleast once. 

Have you ever tried Ghassoul Clay?
