I’m going to start incorporating product reviews. I’ll start off with products that I am currently using, like the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, and will transition into others. If you have any products that you’ve been eyeing to try let me know in the comments below and I’ll try to incorporate them in my product reviews. Happy reading!
What is the Product?
Clay has been used for centuries as a facial mask to beautify and refresh the skin. Its use throughout history, specifically green clay or bentonite, has been well documented.
Cleopatra used clay from the Nile River and the Arabian Desert over 1800 years ago, as a part of her beauty ritual. German and Roman spas used clay packs and treatments in the spas they built 4,000 years ago.
So, why not use the beauty tips and tricks of these ancient cultures these days?
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay offers:
- Deep pore cleaning
- 100% natural calcium bentonite clay
- Does not contain: additives, fragrances, animal products
How to Use the Product
There are many ways to use Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, either on the face to unclog pores or in your hair to remove product build up. When I use it, I mix equal parts of the clay with apple cider vinegar and water for my hair.
A smoother consistency works best for placing the mixture in a bottle. I section my hair and apply the mixture from the tip to the root, coating each strand.
I typically allow the mixture to sit on my hair for about 30 minutes then I rinse with warm water. After rinsing, my hair is very soft and manageable and does not smell like apple cider vinegar or clay.
How did the product affect my Hair?
The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay worked wonders to remove product build up from my hair gently while retaining my hairs natural oils. Once I rinsed out the mixture, my hair was a bit dry, but still manageable.
I followed with a moisturizing sulfate free shampoo and deep conditioner. I noticed the real difference after I allowed my hair to air dry.
My hair absorbed all of my products perfectly and retained moisture for an entire week.
Pros and Cons of the Product
- Pros: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is excellent for clarifying the hair naturally. If you’re allergic to sulfates, this is a great alternative.
- Cons: I learned the hard way that you don’t need to use Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay on your hair every week. If you do, you could strip your hair of its own moisture. I used the product twice in a row, and even though I achieved great results with the styling products, my hair was left dry until I used a deep conditioner. I recommend only using this product once a month or every few weeks.
