Did you know you could detox your hair? This process removes buildup from over the counter products that damage your hair.
Did you know you could detox your hair?
I had no idea that you could detox your hair until I read the book in a DIY beauty book years ago. The book called for making a mask made with bentonite clay, apple cider vinegar, and aloe vera gel.
Out of all the recipes in the book, the one I was most interested in reading about was the homemade shampoo recipe. Why? Because I have tried to use homemade shampoo several times over the last few years. I always go back to commercial shampoo because my hair becomes a terrible rats nest of yuckyness when I try to go all natural!
What I’ve learned is that our hair needs to detox, which can take several weeks to do.
During the detox stage your hair will be very dry and tangly (or as I said above – a terrible rats nest of yuckyness!). I have always had a hard time getting past this stage! Who wants to have nasty feeling hair? Not I!
Here is some good news! You can speed up the process by applying a detox hair mask to your hair!
I’ve used this detox hair mask several times over the years and I absolutely love it! My hair feels so clean and soft when I treat my hair with this nourishing mask. Now that my hair is detoxed, I get to enjoy healthy feeling hair!
