Top 5 Benefits:

  1. Bentonite is a good source of essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and sodium.
  2. Bentonite promotes healthy hair growth by cleansing hair follicles and removing dead skin cells.
  3. Bentonite is great for getting rid of and preventing dandruff by effectively absorbing extra sebum from the scalp, which is a primary source of dandruff-causing fungus. While it soaks up sebum, it also scrapes off the dead skin cells, which eventually become dandruff flakes.
  4. Bentonite is an effective scalp detoxifier that draws out and soaks up toxins from hair and scalp. Regular usage of bentonite clay can keep your scalp free of infections –– both bacterial and yeast.
  5. Bentonite gives your hair a vibrant shine when you combine it with apple cider vinegar and water, for use as a hair rinse.

How to Make Your Clay Wash:
