Hot! Gallery Yes, I Wash My Hair with Mud & I LOVE it!

Guest Blogger Naturalsunshine writes:

Yes, my hair is in love with mud… well technically it is not mud. In actuality, it is bentonite clay. In fact, clays like Bentonite clay and Rhassoul clay are known for their cleansing and anti-bacterial properties. Now, before you tap into your inner mixtress and break out the measuring cups and handmixer, you should know that you can buy an organic, clay infused hair wash already expertly hand crafted, bottled, and packaged. It is called Terressentials Organic Pure Earth Hair Wash and comes in a variety of fragrances like lemon, cool mint, and lavender garden. I can thank Naptural85 and the forum Long Hair Care for inspiring me to purchase my first bottle and giving up shampoo and conditioner indefinitely. I started using Terressentials Mud Wash because it is cost effective. Instead of purchasing/repurchasing a shampoo and conditioner, I can just buy one product that can do the job of both. That’s correct, I use Terressentials Mud Wash as a shampoo and conditioner. It also effectively detangles my hair. I simply wash with Terressentials and then deep condition.

Terressentials Organic Pure Earth Hair Wash is…

Cost Effective (Can work as a shampoo, conditioner, and detangler)
USDA Certified Organic/Hand crafted
A good option for curly hair

**all USDA certified organic**

Price: $10.75 plus S&H

Size: 8 oz

Claim: Our unique, non-lathering, detergent-free Pure Earth Hair Wash, made from a special washing clay, attracts and removes oil and dirt for soft, full, shiny, clean hair.

Fragrance: The Lavender Garden works best for curly hair and the smell is terrific– just like the lavender essential oil.

Consistency: The clay wash is thick but very smooth. It’s not gritty at all!

Results: After using the mud wash, my hair is clean but not stripped. My hair is also fully detangled and smells refreshingly like lavender. Moreover, my curl pattern is defined and my hair strands have a bountiful supply of moisture! I love this product because a little goes a long way and it saves time!

  1. Hey sunshine! Thank you, I am glad that Terressentials Mud Wash works for me too. It is exciting to have a great shampoo. I am sure the mud wash can be beneficial for locs too! In fact, Teressentials has a help page about using their hair wash with locs. Click here for info:

  2. I just received some clay as a prize and I’m super scared to try it. I’ve always read great things about the benefits but it’s always a question for me since I have dreads.
    I don’t want to use it and then have to apply yet another product to get rid of buildup.

    I’m glad it works for you, though. You seem to be in love lol
