Experiences with Rhassoul Clay

dmiller311dmiller311 Posts: 122Registered Users
Hey Ladies!

I recently purchased a pound of Rhassoul Clay and was wondering how some of you create your deep conditioning paste from it. I created my own yesterday and it was (1) a little water (2) didn't coat my hair well.

How much of the clay do you use? What do you mix into it? Are you happy with the results? Let me know.

    I mix mine with coconut milk until it is the consistency of yogurt (a little thicker than that actually). I add in a little bit of coconut oil and honey as well. It makes my hair feel clean and conditioned at the same time. I have not done it in a while and I need to get back to using it.

    My rhassoul clay never seems to get to the right consistency. When I mix it with warm coconut milk, it feels like wet sand that you use to make the sand castles at the beach. I dont like that and when I put it on my hair its just so lumpy and gritty. Isnt it supposed to be more like a paste? I bought it from Mountain Rose Herbs along with bentonite clay and they both are really bad consistencies. I bought the Aztec bentonite clay from the health food store and it was so much better than the clay I got from MRH.

    I got my rhassoul from Anita Grant. It comes in a block so I usually use two cubes and mix with a can of heated coconut milk to dissolve the cubes. It doesn't form a smooth mixture but I wouldn't say it is grainy like wet sand. I think more like chocolate cream of wheat.

    I have only tried it with coconut milk but it leaves my hair feeling great and moisturized and it is not too difficult too rinse out.

    It might depend on the quality of the clay. I get mine from From Nature With Love and I have never had a problem. Also adding coconut oil and honey might smooth it out more. But otherwise, you are putting mud on your head.

    Yea I agree. I think from now on I will order my raw ingredients from FNWL or TNS in the future. No more experimenting with other vendors

    It seems like you're all using rhassoul as a deep treatment. I was taught it's meant to wash your hair....Right? That's actually what I use it for (also since my hair can't stand normal shampoos) but now I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong....

    Help me out here! Do you guys only use rhassoul for deep conditioning or also to clean?
    When you use it for conditioning to you also clean your with other products before or afterwards.....
    So confused....:help:
    3C, very fine (and fragile) hair

    Wash:Rhassoul, once every 1 or 2 weeks
    Condition: AO Honeysuckle Rose
    DT: Jessicurl weekly deep conditioning treatment
    Henna: once every 2 weeks
    Leave in: Yes to cucumbers

    On s'en fou!

    Yes I'm Dutch, yes my hair is kinky, start dealing with it!

    Okay... so, I've searching the net a little bit and turns out rhassoul is actually for washing. The word comes from 'ghassoul' which literally means 'washing' in berber. The clay has for centuries been used for washing body,face and hair and is known for it's great qualities as a strengthener and a wash which detoxifies but doesn't strip the skin and leaves the natural oil production of the skin intact.

    Think it's kind of what Anita Grant has made out of it (no offence!) that makes everyone using rhassoul as a deep treatment.

    Would like to know what kind of experiences you ladies have with rhassoul.
    Anyone also using rhassoul to wash?

    Yes, i have used in the past to wash my hair, but never as a DT. I got mine from France (im in the UK)but it was imported from morrocco. It also loosened my curl pattern, like henna does. When i mixed it with water it was silky kind of mud, no grittyness at all and it washed out really easily left my hair clean conditioned and detangled.

    Lavera does rhassoul in a tube for hair washing. Its also silky to the touch.
    hair type - definately 4a

    wash - any baby shampoo

    conditioning styler - homemade blend with shea, coconut, avocado mango, plam, castor, almond and essential oils

    For the people using rhassoul to condition (especially the Anita Grant rhassoul bar), do you have to do a DT afterwards, like you would after an amla treatment, or do you just use the rhassoul itself as a DT? If, for e.g. I did an amla treatment, would I be able to DT afterwards with Rhassoul or would it be best to stick to HSR?

    After re-reading, I realise how daft this sounds, but am genuinely confused. Lol

    Hello All,
    This is my first post here but I was wondering about washing with clay. I went to my local organic store and they didn't have any rhassoul clay so I bought green clay instead. I used it on my hair and cannot rinse it out and can hardly comb through my hair. So does it really make a difference that I use rhassoul clay or could it have something to do with my water being hard or my hair just not liking it? Anyone else tried any other clay types?
    Thanks a bunch

    Noodlenaps, rhassoul clay has been used for cleaning the hair and removing toxins and gunk out of it. It works very well for me


    However you can use it to DT as well. You just had to add other ingredients in to do so.

    If you use it for a dt you necessarily won't need to do anything afterwards. You have to access your hair. I only use it to wash my hair. Usually i don't have to add a thick conditioner because my hair is light and airy.

    I suppose I use the clay for both washing and conditioning. I used to apply it to my dirty hair to cleanse it. More recently, I cowash then apply the clay with honey and coconut oil in it. My hair comes out soft, silky, squeaky clean and less frizzy. Plus it it much easier to apply it to damp hair as opposed to dry hair.

    Thanks Shawnyblazes, guess I just have to experiment both ways and see what works.

    Hmm. I've ordered twice from Mountain Herbs and the quality was great. I've ordered marshmallow root powder, Irish moss powder, Rhassoul and Fuller's Earth.

    I just tried rhassoul clay for the first time! I like it. I think it has made my hair a little softer, shinier and slightly reduced shrinkage. I will say this... It did not dry out my hair. As for the benefits I think I experienced I will have to try a few more times.

    All I did was mix with hot water. I did not add any other ingredients. It was easy to mix and very smooth and creamy. I did it thin enough to be able to spread but thick enough that it would coat. Sort of a paste consistency. Thicker than cake batter.

    Well I have used this for 6 weeks straight earlier this year as a DT. I don't use the Anita Grant Rhassoul clay. I bought my clay from Camden Grey, in bulk. It didn't dry my hair out or loosen my curl pattern. It adds moisture to my hair. I posted in another Rhassoul Clay thread, but my recipe is pretty simple.

    Rhassoul
    chamomile tea
    marshmallow root
    vitamin e oil

    I leave in for about 30-60 mins and rinse. I do a conditioner rinse after just because it's part of my routine. Leave a little of that in and style accordingly.

    Um, gonna have to backtrack. I'm not liking the rhassoul on my hair. It's not horrible but my hair without it is better. I'm not sure that shrinkage is reduced as my hair looks the same to me but density is reduced and detangling is breeze. However these are the only pluses. Moisture is not enhanced in fact it makes my hair slightly drier and disturbs my curl definition. I'm covered in a halo of frizz. Also, I just noticed this wash that I still had clay on my scalp...if i worked hard enough I could make sure I rinsed enough but I don't want to work that hard. My olive rinses that I love so much leave me with greasy hair after doing the rhassoul treatment. Maybe because it binds to any clays still remaining in the hair. So while I can adjust things to make it work for me I prefer simple...So rhassoul is off my list. I'll use the rest for my skin.

    @alsaxon, you should mix the rhassoul and other clay for that matter with lukewarm or warmed to the touch water (I use tea). This prevents clumping and easier application. Also add an oil to it. I like vitamin E oil. Remember it can act as both a deep conditioner and cleanser. Try that. I use a rinse out conditioner when I'm done.

    Thanks Raquelle,

    My mix is actually smooth and creamy upon application and seems to rinse out well but apparently it does not because I still see it on my scalp. Maybe I need to scrub the scalp when I am rinsing it out. I also use a rinse out conditioner at the end but I use it after the olive oil not the rhassoul. Meaning I rinse the rhassoul out, do my olive oil treament and then rinse out with my rinse conditioner. Maybe I should the cowash after the rhassoul and it will prevent the oil from sticking and maybe it will wash the clay off my scalp better.

    I think I give up though. I like simplicity and its not like I really needed the rhassoul I just wanted to try it to see what all the rave was about. I guess the PJ in me reared its ugly head once more.

    I was having the same problem with the clay. I got it from MRH so I think its their particular quality which isnt up to par. I had also ordered bentonite from them and I compared my mix to the one I made from the Aztec brand and the clay mix with the Aztec brand clay came out so much better and didnt leave my skin or scalp or hair ashy

    As I have found my new baby daddy...yesterday I got the Butters n Bars Conditioning Hair Masque (which is mainly rhassoul clay and pink clay) at a natural hair meet up...and awwww maaaahhh gawd! It's like the benefit of a henna treatment (smoother, softer hair) without the need to DC after. My hair was so soft that I just used a LI and wore Izzy all big, and I have MAJOR HIH syndrome right now so I've basically messed up my hair, but I don't care! Izzy feels like chocolate mousse!

    Furthermore, I looked at the ingredients and decided to test it on my face and yuuuuum! I had been doing bentonite clay treatments, but those are a little drying and initially my face looks like I have sunburn until it calms down...but with this masque, my skin feels soft and supple, with no redness.

    This is definitely my favorite DC I have bought (yes, I'm aware I could make it, but seriously...I'm lazy and 6oz is only $7) rather than mixed in my own kitchen, and I'm about to order more, so I just wanted to share with you all.

    I got a sample of that mask a while ago and it immediately went moldy on me so I didn't use it. I have been wanting to get my hands on some rhassoul clay though. I just cant decide where to buy it. Last time I bought some from Mountain Rose Herbs and it was horrible. Nothing I did could make the mix feel beneficial. I'm hoping it was the quality of that particular clay but idk. I'm may order it from Garden of Wisdom because they have some other fruit powders I have been looking for and would like to add in a clay mask.

    CocoT when did you get yours? She has added a preservative to the mix now, so maybe it won't get moldy.

    Oh it was quite a long time ago. I think it was in April. I'm glad she finally added a preservative.

    I added some powdered goats milk I got from whole foods to my bentonite clay (about 60:40 ratio) masks randomly and I lurvee it.. Before I was going to giveaway my bentonite because seemed too harsh for my skin, the redness doesnt bother me because I do it at night, but it just seemed like it was too drying & didnt make a noticeable difference. The goats milk counteracts the dryness & has AHA's so it exfoliates lowkeyy, when I rinse my skin feels velvety not stripped and looks smoooth the next day!

    Also, honey prevents it from drying hard and makes it less harsh too.. still havent tried bentonite on my dang hair though, Ive got marshmallow powder and all that, I guess ill try that next wash day!
