10 Beauty Benefits of Rhassoul Clay for Hair & Skin
For centuries, rhassoul clay has been used in the ancient world as a prized beauty ingredient. People from ancient Egypt, North Africa, Rome, Greece and Turkey have all gained from the numerous beauty benefits of rhassoul clay for hair and skin
Rhassoul clay is a natural clay mined in the Atlas Mountains of North Africa. It has been mined since the 8th century and is super rich in many minerals including silica, iron, magnesium, potassium, sodium, lithium and trace elements.
Why was it mined all the way in the 8th century, you ask? Well, for its beauty benefits of course! It is traditionally combined with water and used as a skin and hair purifying ingredient.
Rhassoul clay was also used as a sort of mud wrap for the whole body. This amazing mineral-rich clay has lots of beauty benefits for skin so without further ado, let’s get on with them!
1. Exfoliates Dead Cells
Flaky dead skin looks unsightly. Fortunately, rhassoul clay has a mild abrasive texture that helps scrub off dead cells from the skin, leaving it smooth and soft.
2. Purifies & Deeply Cleanses Pores
The soaplike form and molecular structure of rhassoul clay makes it very efficient at deeply cleansing out clogged pores. It helps suck out dirt, grime and pollution from deep within the pores, thereby purifying them.
3. Reduces Excess Oily Skin
Rhassoul clay soaks up surface oils and stale sebum stuck deep within the pores. This prevents pimples, blackheads and comedones from forming!
4. Softens Rough & Tough Skin
Got rough knees and tough elbows? It’s time to use rhassoul clay to soften those stubborn patches! Rhassoul clay also helps with cracked heels and bumpy skin!
5. Tightens Large Pores
Because it has natural astringent properties, rhassoul clay tightens skin and shrinks large pores.
6. Fights Dandruff
Got dandruff? Try rhassoul clay! It helps exfoliate dead skin as well as balance sebum secretion on the skin which helps fight off dandruff.
► Dandruff Hair Pack: Mix in a bowl 1 tbsp Natures Bath & Body Rhassoul Clay Mask Powder, 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (most likely a staple in your pantry) and enough water to form a paste with a medium consistency, not too watery, not too thick. Now add in 7 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil (order here www.naturesbathbody.com) and mix again. Use as a hair mask for 7 minutes then wash off very well to fight off dandruff.
7. Acts as a Natural Shampoo
The saponin content in rhassoul clay makes it a good shampoo alternative. Saponins are natural cleansing agents found in certain plant material that forms a sort of lather when mixed with water.
► DIY Rhassoul Clay Shampoo: Mix up ¼ cup of Natures Bath & Body Rhassoul Clay Facial Mask Powder in enough Rose Water to form a paste. Now add 5-7 drops of Ylang Ylang Essential Oil (order here www.naturesbathbody.com). Stir well. In the shower, wet your head then massage the paste on your scalp and strands. Rinse off with cool water. Your hair will feel squeaky clean and soft.
8. Conditions & Detangles Hair
Rhassoul clay is cleansing and makes hair soft, silky, shiny and manageable! When you use it as a hair mask, it acts as a natural conditioner to provide the extra silkiness your hair deserves!
► Conditioning Hair Mask: Mix up 2 tsp of Coconut Oil and 2 tbsp of Raw Honey in 2 tbsp of Natures Bath & Body Rhassoul Clay Facial Mask Powder. Slather this on your locks and leave it in for about 5 minutes. Rinse off well with tepid water. Try de-tangling your hair – isn’t it so easy?! Your hair will be tangle-free in a very short time and will look conditioned and silky!
9. Detoxifies Skin
Clays are known for their detoxifying effects on the body because of their high levels of ion exchange. Rhassoul clay is no exception! It draws out not only dirt and sebum but also toxins and wastes clogging the body.
10. Soothes Skin Irritations
Rhassoul clay has a skin soothing effect as well! It helps with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
How To Use
