What are the properties of clay?
Clay is a true concentrate of beauty. This rocky material has the ability to capture energy from the sun and air, and transform it into function regenerative for body and hair. Used as a hair product, clay helps to purify, nourish, cleanse, hydrate, regulate, but above all to absorb. It is therefore an excellent care for hair, allowing to deeply cleanse the scalp.
Which clay should I choose for my hair?
There are several types of clays: white, red, green or yellow, there is something for all tastes and above all, for all types of hair! The color of clay differs according to its composition in mineral matter and more precisely, in silica (natural form of silicon dioxide which is used in the composition of many minerals such as clay). Thus, the intrinsic properties of each of them will potentially vary.
If you are prone to dandruff, choose white clay. Very similar to green clay but less absorbent, white clay will gently cleanse and purify your hair.
Ideal for oily hair or to give a boost to tired hair, red clay will provide flexibility and volume to your hair. Richer in iron oxide, red clay is perfectly suited if you want to invigorate your hair.
Green clay contains more minerals and absorbs all impurities from your scalp. It is therefore recommended for hair tending to grease very (too) quickly. Purifying and detoxifying, once the green clay is applied as a mask to your hair, no need to supplement with shampoo, its action is enough for your hair!
If your hair or scalp is fragile and / or sensitive, prefer yellow clay. The latter is the gentlest and least irritating of all. It will therefore balance and purify your scalp without attacking it.
