What is Rhassoul and where does it come from?
From Morocco, comes this remarkable natural source, reddish brown cosmetic clay known as Rhassoul.
It has been used for over 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner, and the finest spas across the globe currently utilize it for therapeutic benefits.
Mined deep beneath the Atlas Mountains in Eastern Morocco it must be extracted under extremely special conditions.
Through meticulous selection, and extensive contact with the raw material we are proud to offer this rich Rhassoul that is truly unique in quality and purity.
When first mined, Rhassoul clay appears as a polished brown, soap-like clay, which is chunky in appearance and resembling rocks. After further refinement and micronization, the end product is a smooth almost silken earth.
How does it work?
Rhassoul is a natural, mild cleanser. Unlike soaps and shampoos Rhassoul contains no surfactants and cleanses gently by absorbing impurities and excess oil. With a pH of 6.9 – 7.5, Rhassoul is THE choice for natural and chemical-free hair and skin cleansing.
Rhassoul is an absorbent clay that dissolves in water and plus-ionizes its mineral content when dissolved. The ionized minerals help to fill up the NMF (Natural Moisture Factor - natural cellulite between cells) that is lost by our skin through stress and aging. Its use has a positive effect on keratin carries out recovery promotion of the damaged of horny layer. When added to water, the Rhassoul-paste is used to adsorb the oils, dead
skin cells, and dirt from the surface of the skin, scalp, and hair.

My First Rhassoul Clay Hair Treatment
This is how mix my ‘Rhassoul Clay Treatment’ I use about 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of warm water and 150g of rhassoul clay. I was not planning to use the whole 150g, but I added to much water and so I have no choice; it was bummer I tend to be good at getting these power mixes right on, awww well there is always a first.
I mix it up and let it sit for a while it was a bit runny and I wanted a thicker consistency so I added a squirt of Mizani Moistufuse conditioner which did the trick of getting to the perfect consistency.
I then co-washed my hair with Aussie Cleanse and Mend conditioner (US version), loves this conditioner. I blotted dry my hair a bit then I apply the rhassoul clay mix in sections and then cover with two shower caps. I was hoping to do it for an hour, but I got busy doing bits around the house and it left in for about 5 hours.
I then rinsed it out and I really like the results, it made my hair feel so soft, clean and conditioned. It made the natural parts of my hair the curls seemed more defined and was big and felt heavy. I really liked the results and the feel of my hair afterwards. I am going to order some more and do another treatment, so far really nice results.
