What is kaolin clay?

The advantages of kaolin clay for hair
Great pH Balance
We use various products on our hair that end up disturbing the pH level of our scalp. This can affect our hair health and growth at a greater level. But thankfully, kaolin has got our backs. Its pH level is very similar to the pH level of our scalp, and that’s why it helps balance our scalp’s pH levels.
Excess oil on our scalp is extremely frustrating. It takes away all the beauty of our hair and we end up with a sticky scalp and hair. Kaolin clay is a one-stop solution for oily scalps because it can easily absorb excessive oil.
If you think that your hair is in need of deep cleansing, then using kaolin clay would be a great idea. It exfoliates and detoxifies the scalp.
What Can Kaolin Clay Do for Your Hair?
Using Kaolin clay as a hair mask is very common. As a hair mask, it can restore moisture to your hair and also heal a dry scalp. The best part of this clay hair mask is that it cleanses the scalp by absorbing dirt and residue.
One of the best parts of using kaolin clay for your hair is that it does not take away essential natural hair oils. Our scalp produces hair oils that are essential for hair growth. Our hair gets dry and prone to damage if these oils are washed out. Using Kaolin clay for your hair does not take away those natural oils.
How to Use Kaolin Clay for Hair
Using kaolin clay is very simple and easy. It works best as a detoxifying clay cleanser. It can be used for both the scalp and hair.
Just apply the detoxifying clay cleanser to your hair and scalp and let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes. It will get a little hard and dry, but that is fine. After that, just wash it with your choice of shampoo or conditioner and you will be good to go.
