Hey Curlies,

Sure there are a lot of shampoos on the market promising clean hair, but there are also other hair cleansers that can not only get rid of build up, they can replace traditional shampoos, conditioner sand deep conditioners.

Over the past year I’ve tried a couple of “no-shampoo” clay cleansers for my curly hair and have found a couple make my list of favorites.

So if you’re not convinced on why you should try a clay wash here are some pros:

  • Clays are all natural and you won’t have to worry about harm chemicals
  • They leave your hair feeling soft, not stripped and brittle like some shampoos can
  • They can replace your typical washing, conditioning and deep conditioning products
Cons? There really aren’t any. You will obviously notice the difference in texture since clay washes are…well clay and not shampoo, but they get the job done.
