For those who are new, Rhassoul Clay is the paramount ingredient in Naturalicious products. We worship it; and for good reason. With all of its natural abilities, it proves to be vital in the busy, natural woman’s self-care routine.
For thousands of years it has been used to cleanse and restore the skin and hair. The word “Rhassoul” actually derives from the arabic language, meaning “to wash.” And it’s so red-carpet-exclusive that you can only find it deep in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
My fav clay gives our hair life and here’s why:
Clean as a whistle
Rhassoul Clay binds itself to impurities, toxins, dirt, and buildup, and then rinses away with water taking all that with it. Essentially, it acts as a magnet to all the bad stuff, but leaves all the good stuff, like moisture. And you know we need dat moisture!
It’s also known to draw out the harmful chemicals from commercial hair products. Think of it as a natural detoxifier; a way to start fresh. Beyond just cleansing, this clay helps to eliminate dandruff and is safe for most skin types, including those with eczema and psoriasis (but, of course, always consult with your medical professional first if you have these challenges).
Strong Hair = Mo’ Hair!
Rhassoul Clay is like the gym for your hair. Ok, that might be a bit of a stretch, but hear me out. One of the main reasons people have a hard time growing their hair is because of the wear and tear of commercial shampoos. The chemicals in that stuff strip everything, including moisture, from hair and leave strands dry, brittle, and weak. Eventually the hair gets tired and just breaks off.
The magic in Rhassoul Clay is in its ability to grab ahold to the nasty ish without disrupting the scalp or hair shaft. Naturally, our hair is pretty strong. If we continue to give it what it needs, rather than the stuff found in most shampoos, it will grow!
Condition Me Baby
The major key of Rhassoul Clay is that it simultaneously cleanses and conditions.
Because as it’s carrying away the gunk, it’s leaving behind super minerals like silica, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium. It nourishes the hair with yummy food. The hair is fed all of these great minerals, thus resulting in shiny, soft, and happy tresses.
So you can rest assured knowing that if you do allow someone to touch your hair (don’t let Solange see this) they will be in for a nice, pleasantly soft surprise!
