I love using bentonite clay for cleansing and conditioning, but when my curls start to feel crunchy dry, I make chocolate!
This rich, moisturizing rhassoul clay deep conditioner has 4-ingredients. If you’ve been on the fence about trying a mud wash or clay conditioner, make this recipe your first!
- helps remove toxins from hair and body
- contains high levels of silica, magnesium, calcium and potassium, which are excellent for healthy hair and skin
- softens and conditions hair
- elongates kinky curls
- adds shine
If you have any leftovers of this recipe, keep them in an air tight container and place it in the refrigerator. If you’re using this Chocolate on the same day, saran wrap will work.
If you’re making a big batch and have lots left over, you can freeze this clay for up to 6 months.
- 3 tablespoons rhassoul clay (I buy mine from here)
- 1/4 cup cocoa butter (melted, add slowly)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons warm coconut milk
- Add all ingredients to your mixing bowl.
- Stir until the clay is smooth.
- If you like a paste consistency, add less coconut milk. If you like it more like a chocolate sauce (like mine above) add more by the teaspoon.
- Once the clay is mixed, apply it to your hair.
- Let it condition for 45 to 60 minutes.
- Optional: Add a heat cap for a luscious deep condition!
- Rinse well! This clay likes to hide in my coils more than bentonite clay, so make sure to rinse well, then rinse again!
Optional Liquid Substitutions:
Don’t have warm coconut milk? Try:
- aloe vera juice
- coconut water
- distilled water
- grapefruit juice
- green tea
- homemade flaxseed gel

The $90 Bonus Recipe | Rhassoul Clay Acne Treatment
The Talking Stick Resort, in Scottsdale, AZ used to offer the most AMAZING revitalizing skin treatment. After prepping my face, massaging my skin, applying a nice warm towel, and about 5 more things I fell asleep on (it was so relaxing!) — my skin looked and felt better than it ever had.
And it should have for $90.
Thank goodness it was for “research” and during Arizona’s Annual Spa Week (which usually takes place in April; here’s a link from last year)). All participating spas across the state, often mark down their services by 50% or more.
Which brings me back to the $90 treatment.
When she gave me the product she used, there were two ingredients listed — rhassoul clay and water.
I had tons of this stuff at home! Over time I noticed rhassoul clay could be too drying by itself on my face. So I started adding raw organic honey, and almost started giving spa facials in my bathroom.
The $90 Rhassoul Clay Acne Treatment
The honey in this recipe will gradually lighten dark spots (like acne scars), and give your skin a nice healthy glow.
- 1 teaspoon rhassoul clay
- 1/4 teaspoon raw organic honey
- 1/4 tsp water (add slowly)
