Make Hair Conditioning Clay – Recipe

1/4 cup jojoba oil
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons white clay (kaolin or China clay)
1/2 cup water
Heat together the jojoba and coconut oils until the coconut oil has melted.  This doesn’t take long, perhaps 1 to 2 minutes.  Combine the melted oils with the clay and water, and stir well, then pour into a clean container and label.

To use: Wet hair and pour a small amount into your palm (approximately 1 tablespoon).  Massage thoroughly into your hair and scalp.  Wrap your head with plastic and cover with a towel turban style.  Let the conditioner sit on your hair for 10-15 minutes, then shampoo as usual.  You may have to shampoo twice to remove the conditioner.  If the mixture separates between uses, simply run hot water over the closed container to remelt the coconut oil and shake gently to mix.
