Detoxing – Not Just For Your Body



Hair has a negative (gain electrons) charge. Most conditioners contain positively (lose electrons) charged ingredients.  According to French Physicist Charles-Augustin de Coulomb, positively charged particles in conditioners have a natural affinity to negatively charged hair strands (Electrostatic Force).  These positively charged ingredients sit on the hair shaft. They are water resistant agents that seal the cuticle (outer layer) while improving softness and shine. Examples of positively charged ingredients are Dimethicone, Behentrimonium, Polyquatermiun 4, 7, 10.

Bentonite Clay is negatively charged. This is why detoxing the hair with Bentonite Clay occurs rapidly.  The clay removes all of the positive toxins from the fair shaft upon rinsing the clay from the hair.

To apply detox mixture:

  • Mix equal parts of Bentonite Clay and Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass or plastic bowl until it forms a paste;

(never use a metal bowl or mixing utensils);

  • Section your hair into four quadrants;
  • Apply the mixture to each section;
  • Cover with a plastic cap;
  • Let it sit for 30 minutes;
  • After 30 minutes rinse the Bentonite Clay;
  • Then deep condition the hair with Raw Honey for ten minutes;
  • Repeat this process one time per week.








During the detoxing process avoid styling the hair with blow dryers and flat irons.

Use pure oils such as Organic Argan or Coconut Oil to define your natural curl pattern, or twist set the hair.

If you need to shampoo more than once a week, mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with one cup of water.  Apply to the hair then let it sit for 3 to 5 minutes; rinse and condition with raw honey.

Natural detoxing is the best way for the body and hair to achieve optimum performance.
