Kaolin clay powder has superb absorbent properties making it capable of absorbing excess oils and toxins from your hair and skin. It has a high mineral content, as well as antiseptic and soothing qualities. Kaolin also aids in retaining moisture in the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
Kaolin is wonderful for curly hair, it can be used in place of shampoo and leaves hair soft, shiny and helps to define your curls. A Kaolin clay hair mask treatment coupled with 10-20 minutes under a low heat dryer may temporarily loosen hair / curl texture until the next wash and is a great hair mask to use before blowdrying or flat ironing your hair.
Mix kaolin clay powder with :
Mineral or rosewater for a clay face mask,
Apple cider vinegar, mineral water, honey and olive oil for a curl defining hair mask/shampoo alternative
or add a few scoops to a bath for a relaxing mineral soak.
