Marshmallow Root comes from a plant native to Africa that has been used for centuries to prepare herbal treatments. It has moisturizing and soothing properties that make it effective for revitalizing hair. The mucilage in marshmallow root binds with hair proteins and makes the strands appear thicker and more defined, acting as a natural conditioner.
Sweet Almond Oil helps damaged and dull hair become shinier & stronger. It's lighter than many other oils, which makes it excellent for leave-in protection. Because of its lightness, it is also excellent for finer hair that gets easily weighed down. It contains proteins and vitamins A, B and E, all of which help add shine to dull, dry hair, working as a sealant.
Grapeseed Oil comes from the seeds of wine grapes. This oil is rich in antioxidants, has a light texture and won’t weigh hair down. This means it's perfect for those with even the finest, thinnest hair. It works as a natural de-frizz and cuticle sealer to help lock in moisture, tame frizz, and combat split ends.
Hydrolyzed Rice Protein amazingly increases hair volume, since it naturally contains both positively and negatively charged amino acids. Hair is negatively charged. The positively charged amino acids in this protein bond with the negatively charged hair structure and the additional negatively charged amino acids repel each other, creating a volumizing effect.
Burdock Root Extract which is extracted from the leaves and roots of the Burdock plant, contains mucilage and essential fatty acids to help hair retain moisture long term.
Our unique cleansing formula is infused with Peppermint and Eucalyptus oils. It gently clarifies, bringing shine, definition and vitality back to each strand. Hair needs to be cleansed naturally without stripping it of essential moisture and proteins.
“I love this product. It removes all product build-up without drying your curls. My curls have never been as defined and shiny as when I use the Clay Wash - just amazing.'' — Customer Review
In a small bowl, mix 2 tbsp of the powder with 6 tbsp of warm water to freshly activate the treatment. Apply to hair and roots, and let sit on hair for 10-15 minutes under a plastic cap. Then rinse out thoroughly with warm water and be amazed!
Tip: For best results apply on damp, already detangled hair and apply to twisted sections. Cover shoulders with towel.
Please note: The Clay Wash is not suitable for colour-treated hair.
How is the clay wash different from other cleansing products?
Our Curl Refresh Clay Wash is a pure, all-natural, clay-based clarifying treatment to help press reset on your curls. Our unique formula is concocted with earth softening clays, sweet conditioning fruits and stimulating organic essential oils for all curl types: curls, kinks and coils. It contains no synthetic petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, sulphates, silicones, surfactants/detergents, soap or wax to leave a residue on the hair or scalp. As the Clay Wash contains no soaps or foaming agents, there will be no lather at all. It is formulated with Bentonite clay, an incredibly powerful clay, possessing a negative charge (anionic). It has the ability to remove positively charged (cationic) conditioners and products that can build up on the hair and scalp. Micro molecules supercharge absorption power, pulling oils, toxins, heavy metals and impurities and stimulating blood flow.
It does double the job: Our clay-based cleanser is the perfect deep clean detox and curl reset formula that cleans your curls gently without stripping curls of essential moisture and proteins.
Where in my curl routine does a clay wash go? Before shampoo and conditioning? Instead of shampoo?
The clay wash is used to clarify the hair and scalp, in place of a shampoo. One of the great things about using a clay wash is that it's optional to follow up with a conditioner. When used alone it can leave curls soft, shiny, and nicely detangled. Whether you do, or do not follow up with a conditioner is a preference. See how your curls feel afterward.
When and how often should you use the clay wash?
Use it to clarify your hair and scalp, when hair feels dirty, heavy and weighed down with build-up and the scalp feels the same and is flaky. This can be used every 3-4 weeks, to give yourself a break from gentle shampoos, in place of harsher sulfate-based clarifiers.
How much of the formula do I use to wash my hair?
Depending on your hair needs and length, you will use an average of 2-3 tablespoons of clay formula for each wash.
Is it suitable for use on colour-treated hair?
Clay containing products are not usually recommended for colour-treated hair since the absorption may remove chemical treatments. We recommend patch testing before use.
What is the detox period?
A consideration when transitioning to natural haircare products is the use of silicones and sulfates in many commercial haircare brands. Silicone and other artificial substances coat the hair much like plastic to give it slip and shine. If you have been using commercial shampoos or conditioners containing silicones, sulfates and other harsh chemicals for a long time, your hair will benefit from a detox. The absence of harsh detergents and chemicals combined with the goodness of natural clay means that after three months of regular use, you should find that your curls will feel naturally softer after a clay wash.
