I had the pleasure of using Terressentials Pure Earth Hair Wash in Organic Lavender Garden. I had read the reviews, watched some awesome reviews, and have been eyeing clays for some time. Buying
this clay reminded me that I had some rhassoul clay or deep condish that I got from anitagrant.com some time ago! That’s what trying this product did. It inspired me to find out more about bentonite clay, what the difference are between rhassoul clay and bentonite clay (awesome interview with Anita Grant on CurlyNikki who breaks down the difference), and completely leave shampoos behind for this leg of my natural journey!
But this is not even the review! Here are some pics from day 1 and 2 of my 5 day terressentials detox. My hair still feels so good, I don’t want to wash it and it’s been about 5 days. My hair is usually itching so much I have to run to the shower by now!
I placed a plastic bag on my head and kept the clay on for about an hour every day after washing. I tried 30 minutes but my hair was even easier to detangle after an additional 30 minutes.
During the 5 day detox, I discovered something else amazing about my hair–she LOVES apple cider vinegar rinses!
Look at the photo above and then compare it to the photo below:
That’s not funny business with the camera, I turned my head under the same light after my acv rinse. My hair is softer, shinier, and less frizzy after these rinses and I have an wonderful recipe right here.
I rinsed out the acv on most days except one but didn’t notice a difference. I just didn’t want a faint hew of vinegar in the air when I walked by!
Here are the finished pics from day 2. Since I’m detoxing my hair I didn’t want to put anything non-natural or not homemade on it. I sealed in the moisture and twisted my hair with some castor oil, a few drops of nettle (to strengthen the hair), lavender and rosemary to enhance circulation and blood flow to the scalp), and lemon (for a light scent and good feelings:).
This motivates me to keep making/testing things, and I’m curious to see if I notice any other subtle and big changes to my hair like the apple cider vinegar discovery. I’m already excited about the results and I give Terressentials a LAVISH 10 on my scale of AWESOMENESS! I would buy it again although not at this time. I really want to make it myself to see if I can make something close or better than that!
I bought more bentonite clay, with marshmallow root powder and some other delicious extracts and herbs I’m going to try on my hair. I am BEYOND excited about all of this and I would have never tried all of this without Terressentials. It has helped return my hair back to its thickness and fullness. I have curl definition now and I’ve never had it all the way down my hair shaft. I love getting my hair wet just to look at it!
I do credit most of this healthy newness to my overall healthy hair care regime and homemade goodies. Terressentials has been a big part of the speeding up of the “lavishly healing process” with a immediate and instant before and after change to the feel and look of my hair.
If you are on the edge with whether or not to try this product I hope my experience helps you make your decision!
