The benefits of bentonite clay for the hair are abundant.
Bentonite clay is known to:

Don’t let me stop you. Try out this recipe and reveal your beautiful “popping” coils and curls
2 tablespoons of bentonite clay
1/3 cup of warmed up aloe vera juice
And then I add one tablespoon of honey.
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
4-5 drops of tea tree oil
4-5 drops of lavender essential oil.
Mix all ingredients together. The warm aloe vera juice will reduce formation of lumps and allow the coconut to blend easily. Once all ingredients are mixed into a paste, transfer into an applicator bottle for easier application. Dilute with about ½ – ¾ cup of water and proceed to wash your hair.
