Clay Washing for Natural Hair Health and Growth



Clay, mud, and fine-grained earth are all words that describe our mineral-rich favorite detoxifying miracle for our bodies and hair. Whether you choose bentonite, rhassoul, or kaolin clay, they all offer benefits that to some far outweigh shampoos. If you want to ditch shampoos for their harsh sulfates and surfactants, but find co-washing inefficient, then a clay wash may be the perfect solution.

These clays are born of the earth, and as we love using what the earth has to offer, clays never disappoint. In recent years they are becoming popular but many cultures throughout our history have been using clays to heal and rid their bodies of toxins.

Tips for Washing Natural Hair



by Michelle of Radiant-Brown-Beauty

We all have to regularly cleanse and condition our hair. We know we need to do it, but sometimes you just don’t feel like it!  I personally don’t mind a few hours of doing my hair... I look at it as 'me time'.  Yet, there really are times (although rare) that I want wash day to be quick, but still effective.  So, here are 3 tips that I have found to help get the job done efficiently--

I. Pre-Poo the night before
Pre-pooing is basically, applying a natural oil, conditioner or both, to your hair prior to washing it, to get it ready for the manipulation that is to follow. When you pre-poo the evening before you wash, it allows that pre-poo concoction (whatever it is) to really soak into your strands, making the wash process much easier. I have literally applied my pre-poo to tangled hair, gone to bed and when I got up the next morning to wash my hair, the tangles melted away under the shower stream. I’m currently using coconut oil mixed with Aubrey Organics GPB or another conditioner.

More often than not, you wind up skipping steps or not doing a thorough enough job. In my experience, it doesn’t pay to try to properly wash AND style my hair when I’m pressed for time so I’ve found it better to do so when I’m completely free or close to it. This means less stress for me and there’s also a practical benefit…

Natural Girls Be Like... #WashDay





This #WashDay meme spread like wildfire in the natural hair community, and while utterly hilarious (ranch dressing and a Bible though?), this fun-poking photo does hold a grain of truth.

I've come to realize that many naturals and transitioners simply do entirely too much on wash day.

As hilarious as this meme is (I get the giggles all over again just looking at each item individually) it'd be nice if wash day wasn't a joke.

Here are three key ways to make wash day a little more manageable, and a little less, well, see above.
