After reading a number of blogs and watching videos I decided to go with MopTopMavens tutorial. I love her hair and admire her contribution to helping us grow longer healthier hair. So many journeys I see start from transitioning from relaxers and its refreshing for me to see someone who had a journey similar to mine recovering from heat damage.
I gathered everything I would need to mix the clay.
|I co-washed first using VO5 conditioner. I noticed MopTopMaven applied hers to dry hair but I wouldn't have been able to part it to apply the clay without it being detangled.|
|I separated front half from the back...|
|Starting from the back I applied the clay from root to end.|
There are a few things I want to note. Adding the ACV to the bentonite clay powder and the Aloe Vera gel may have aided in the fact the texture was much more smooth then the clay I used for my facial. Also, my conditioner that I have used now for over a year, had even better results then it does when I normally use it without detoxing first. Since this is such a time friendly treatment and can be used as often as I like, I will be adding this step moving forward prior to at least every other deep conditioning. I just feel without any build up the conditioners have a much better chance of offering better results.
