 Why Should You Detox

Detoxing means to rid the body of toxins or unhealthy substances. When you detox the hair you rid it of any product buildup that may have been left behind in your normal wash routine. Detoxing not only leaves the hair super clean and shiny but the skin beautiful and glowing.

A hair and skin detox can be accomplished using very affordable clays such as red Morrocan clay or bentonite clay. They are equally great for your hair and skin but you may find one more beneficial than the other. Rhassoul clay cleanses hair and leaves it bouncy and shiny. It benefits the skin by improving skin texture, unclogs hair follicles.  reduces dryness and overall enhances the clearness of skin. Bentonite clay, a healing clay, removes dead skin cells, soaks up extra sebum, and leaves hair shiny. It’s also perfect for oily and acne prone skin because it controls excess oils and helps reduce appearance for scars. Both clays provide very similar benefits but you may prefer one to the other.
