    I just read on another forum that a lot of nappies use clay as a hair mask. Has anyone done this? Is it just like a flour smoothing? Does clay give anything special to the hair?

    Rhassoul is a good one for hair. Use Google to research on the properties.

    I agree; I used to use Africa Spa Hair & Body mud.. It contains Rhassoul Mud, but I have not been able to find it lately. I recently ordered some Dead Sea mud from FNWL, so I'll see how that works.

    This is what I found somewhere else. Interesting...

    Clay mask is used for deep cleansing and it also extracts impurities from hair.

    The ghassoul (Rhassoul) is excellent strengthening for hair. Advised for the fatty hair, it degreases without pickling nor to damage, cleanses the scalp and controls the secretion of sebum while reviving the brilliance of the hair

    Shulta has a product advertised on her site containing Rhassoul clay although she has not opened yet but hopefully it will be soon as I really want to try it.

    Oh yeah, I think I've seen the same information but it is for Moroccan Red Clay not Rhassoul. This is the difference:

    - Kaolinite aka: Moroccan Red Clay
    Moroccan Red Clay
    kaolinite
    Moroccan red comes from deep below the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This clay is a strong cleansing clay that will draw excess oils from the skin, stimulate circulation to the skin, and act as a powerful astringent for oily skin and hair. It is used in many spas around the world. Use it in facials and body wraps. Moroccan red clay also makes a nice natural color additive for soaps and powders.
    Limit to 1 application per week. Do not use for sensitive or dry skin types.

    - Rhassoul - this is my favourite and it is the most versitile - I use this in my cubes & hearts. My supplier extracts Rhassoul from the Atlas mountains of Eastern Morocco. He tells me that the actual word comes from the Arabic phrase meaning "to be washed". Here is some more information about it and the ref website link below.
    Moroccan LAVA
    A truly exquisite spa quality clay from ancient deposits unearthed from the fertile Atlas mountains of Morocco. Rhassoul is a mineral rich, reddish brown clay that blends extremely well with water making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience. High in silica, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, and sodium, this clay is surely one of the finest treasures for pampering your skin. Its extraordinary power of absorption makes it more effective than other clays for cleansing, de-toxification, and general skin treatment. It can be used as soap, skin conditioner, shampoo, and facial and body mask. It washes like soap and leaves a unique, sweet scent on the skin.
    Taken from: http://www.alpinenaturals.com/powders.html


    It really depends on the type of clay you are using & what you are using it for.
    I have never heard of Rhassoul being an irritant and have all my products reviewed by a cosmetic consultant in France & then certified by a chemist - something would have been mentioned to me regarding the labelling part of my PIF when I submit my recipe for safety assessement & certification. However, the condish I make is a deep conditioner *not* intended to be used everyday - only once every 2 weeks or 4 weeks as a deep treatment - depending on the amount of conditioning your hair requires.

    Here's some more information on clays:
    http://www.kitsforcrafts.com/info_ce...play.asp?id=10 -> Handmade skin care for kids that kids can make - this one is fun!


    - White Amazonian Clay - According to the manufacturers specification:
    The clay is an oleaginous soil that has a great number of shades, depending of the origin.
    It is a natural product, very rich in mineral salts, that take the toxines to the skin surface
    removing them. Rich in iron, aluminium, potassium, calcium, boron, sulphur, clay was quite
    popular natural therapy, well-know for its beneficial effects in headache and stress
    illnesses.
    There is an active clay native from the Amazon called AMAZONIAN WHITE CLAY.
    Brazilian indians used geotherapy very often, clay may protect them against skin problems
    and to protect them from biting insects.
    This Amazonian clay is the result of the dissociation of the Amazon organic products
    where unsaponifiable fractions of these products are retained, there is to say, they are
    absorbed by that clay type.
    Therefore, they are full of nutrients that combat free radicals and they channelize positive
    energy.
    This product is effective when its drying is made by sunshine to energize it.

    The AMAZONIAN WHITE CLAY can be applied in natural treatments with the following
    properties:
    * Relaxation
    * Skin regeneration
    * Hydration
    * Cleaning

    Suggested Applications
    * Face pack is suggested between 15 to 50%
    * Body pack is suggested between 15 to 50%
    * Skin and body products such as regeneration, cleaning, hydration and others are
    suggested between 3 to 10%
    - Volclay - Classified as sodium bentonite, mined & has the consisting of micro fine particles and supplied as a free-flowing powder. It's used as a suspending agent, viscosifier, binder and emulsion stabilizer for cosmetics.
