Rhassoul Clay

Hello Beautiful People!

Recently, I’ve been experimenting with new hair routines and the first on my endless list is Rhassoul Clay! Let me tell you a bit about it….

Benefits (or so they say) are as follows:

1. Softens;

2. Moisturizes;

3. Reduces dandruff and product build up (I have a LOT of that); and

4. Aids in detangling

My experience:

1. Reduced dandruff and product build up; and

2. Increased curl definition

My recipe included:

1. Rhassoul clay… lots of it! I have a full head of thick, jet black type 4C (Wura thinks I deserve a league of my own- “4D”) hair.

2. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

3. Virgin Organic Coconut Oil

I purchased Rhassoul clay and Coconut oil from my number 1 Natural Hair Consultant- Beautifully Nappy, you can buy yours HERE.

I can’t even lie, my hair wasn’t any softer, neither was it easier to manage. But I must say, Rhassoul clay did wonders for my dandruff and in general it was a fun experience. Have any of you ever used Rhassoul Clay? Reap any benefits… please share.

Con you say DEFINITION?DSC_0115

Look at that shrinkage…. about 75% of my hair length disappeared…. AMAZING! The curl definition is ridiculous!

Would I use it again…? Yes, infact I have! It’s always a fun experience and my Mum’s reaction is the same everytime… “JESU!!!” (Jesus in Yoruba).

Shrinkage… the Struggle!

Shrinkage…. I hate shrinkage!

I’m faced with the woes of shrinkage as often as I have a wash day. I find that my hair works like a defense mechanism, as moisture touches the ‘fro, each strand retreats into a tangled mane recoiling back to the roots. I often feel estranged from my hair when this magic happens, I mean compare my shrinkage to the stretch. It’s a battle I face often enough and yet I can’t seem to combat the struggle.

Last week I decided to document the magic that occurs with every wash day. A reminder (if you like) of what I go through as often as I wash my hair….

Does anyone have any tips on how to overcome the struggle that is Shrinkage? If you do, please share as more often than not, I end up blow drying which leaves my ‘fro stripped and thirsty and so hard!

Ps: I used Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) to wash my hair for the first time. It was fantastic! I totally recommend it.

PPs: I’m feeling pretty good today, the intern in my office tried to guess my age and her guess was 21, LOL. Love it!!!
