Personally, I believe that nature has given us everything. But marketing and advertising convinces us otherwise.
What is Rhassoul clay?
Rhassoul comes from the Arabic word “rassala” meaning “washing’’. It is found deep beneath the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. This clay is probably one of the most perfect clays in the world, because it is ideal for all skin care and dermatological uses.
Rhassoul has been used for over 1400 years by nobles in ancient Rome and Egypt as a soap, shampoo and skin conditioner. It has an outstanding ability to cleanse, nourish and condition the skin and hair.
Properties of Rhassoul clay?
Easy to use Rhassoul is 100% natural and ecological.
It contains higher percentages of silica, magnesium, potassium, calcium and other trace minerals than other clays. These minerals make the clay highly detoxifying as they can actually exchange themselves for toxic compounds like metals in the skin. The clay not only works to remove impurities from your skin, it also replaces them with nourishing trace minerals. The clay’s high level of ions exchange makes it ideal for toning and enriching the skin. Perhaps the best part about Rhassoul clay is what it doesn’t contain! No petrochemical derivatives, no synthetic preservatives, no surfactants or artificial colors … all of which are common in commercial soaps and cleansers.(3)
Uses of Rhassoul clay?
Rhassoul clay may also help to improve the appearance of skin troubled by eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea. In addition, it helps with dandruff and thinning hair.
Using Rhassoul Clay as Shampoo?
The amount of Rhassoul clay you use will depend on the length and thickness of your hair.
With a non-metallic bowl and spoon mix the clay with warm water or rose water to obtain a smooth creamy paste let the mixture hydrate for 5 to 10 minutes.(3) Wet your hair and divide it into 4 sections. Curly hair is delicate and can be oversensitive to rough handling so apply clay gently. Leave it in your hair for about 15 – 20 minutes. Rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water, then condition and style.
The results are fantastic! Rhassoul removes build-up and leaves your hair clean, and moisturized!
