R & R with Bentonite Clay

I have been into the “natural” thing for quite a few years now.  The more I have researched the more I have learned.  I had the night off work tonight and decided to have a glass of wine and some R & R.  I have been washing and detoxing my hair with an expensive bentonite “shampoo” for a few months.  I am EXTREMELY sensitive to chemicals and toxins that they put in “normal” shampoos.  I tried the hair wash as a last resort.  I was blown away at the results.  It took about a week to completely detox my hair.  It was funny because I thought that I was using a natural shampoo and conditioner but was shocked and upset when I looked up some of the lesser known ingredients.   Long story short what I was using before the hair wash was just as toxic as non organic suds.   The bentonite hair wash has been a life saver but I hated paying for it. I had to send for it and shipping alone was 10 bucks.  So I did a little moreresearch and discovered that I could mix my own.  I went to my local health supplier and found a one pound container for 10 bucks.  I have also found out that it can be used for many more remedies.  Hair wash, facial mask, soap, bath soaks, foot soaks, and even taken internally for detox.  So I did a little of my own mixing tonight.  I started with a facial mask.  I combined 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (used for its antibacterial properties), and a teaspoon of coconut oil (for moisturizing).  It blended up nicely and had a mousse like texture.  Next I mixed up my own hair wash using bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, a little purified water, some coconut oil and a splash of lavender oil for scent.  The hair wash (after the detox process) makes my hair soft, thick,  and shiny.  The only bad thing about using a hair wash is that you cannot use any other hair styling products (hair spray,gel, hair dye, etc.) because that would defeat the purpose of detoxing.  So I found a 100% USDA organic hair wax that is awesome.  So I poured myself a glass of wine and started my R & R.  I masked my face with the homemade facial mask.  After application I let it sit for 15-20 min.  It made my face tingle and tighten and left it really soft and smooth.  I then drew a bath and slowly added the clay by itself gradually under the running water.  I sat back and soaked with my glass of wine for about 30 minutes.  It made my skin soft and soothed my aching muscles.  I have been amazed at the results with the bentonite clay and it is so simple and easy to mix and make your own recipes.  I have added a few links at the bottom for some recipes and remedies that bentonite clay can offer.

What are the measurements for the hair wash mix?

Here is a link to a really great recipe.  http://thankgodimnatural.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/bentonite-clay-as-a-deep-conditioner-savvy-brown-co-signs-it/

I like to add about 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to mine(for conditioning) and a few drops of essential oil (for scent) Lavender oil works really well and has a great smell.  It all depends on the texture you like best. Sometimes you need to add a little purified water to it too.  I have found that a few days after deep cleansing with the clay if you wash your hair with castile soap(I use kirk's liquid castile) to get rid of build up it makes your hair baby soft.  I love it as a mask.  For my mask I just added 2 tbs. clay to 2 tbs. apple cider vinegar.  It works great and makes my skin so soft.  Best advise I can give is to just experiment with it.  You can find some great recipies on google for it too.  Enjoy.  If you have more questions let me know.  Oh...and here is another great link about living clay...http://www.aboutclay.com/clay_info.htm
