Clay Hair Mask For Oily Hair

Clay mask for Shiny hairClay mask for Shiny hair

 

If you have oily hair, clay hair mask is a great natural option.

I particularly like fullers earth or multani mitti for greasy hair. This wonderful clay is very effective at absorbing excess oils and impurities from your scalp, leaving it clean and revitalized.

The addition of lime peel powder gives shine and softness to your hair and may help with dandruff. Here’s how to make this simple and effective clay mask…

Clay Hair Mask For Oily Hair

Optional add-ins

  • 1 tablespoon licorice powder (optional, helps with hair loss)
  • 1 – 2 tablespoon shikakai powder (optional, adds volume and balances oil production)

Mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth paste.

Apply the mixture into your scalp and hair. Put on a shower cap or cover your hair using a thin cloth (like muslin) and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse well with warm water.

Tip: Use this mask once a week or once every two-week to balance your scalp oils.

Note: You can also try other clays such as bentonite or green clay.

    Love your blog! Keep up the excellent work! I was wondering though if this recipe can be used as a shampoo to wash out oil from the hair after head massage? And would it work with other clays such as rasshoul clay or will that leave hair greasy? I have very oily hair near the roots but very much dandruff and itchy/sensitive scalp. Store bought shampoos are ruining my long hair but it’s the only thing I’ve tried that can wash out the oil I massage my hair with 🙁

      Hi Sara, Thanks for your love.
      Yes you can use clay mask as shampoo. And go ahead and try different clays to see what works for you.
      You can also try adding other ingredients like: orange powder, shikakai, aloe vera, rosewater etc to it.
      Let me know how it works for you.
