The product that has been loved by many beauty mavens as a face mask can also be used to create a deeply moisturizing hair mask! Natural hair and DIY lovers, this one is for you! Made of just one ingredient, 100 percent natural calcium bentonite clay, this offering works wonders with defining your curls, hydrating your hair, softening the hair and removing dirt and buildup from your hair seamlessly.
You may be wondering how you could create a hair mask with bentonite clay and the answer is pretty simple- with products from your kitchen! Simply place equal parts Aztec Secret Indian Clay and Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar ($11.49, Amazon.com) into a bowl.

Combine the mixture until you achieve a smooth consistency. Add more clay or liquid if needed.
Next, you need to split your hair into four sections. Apply the mixture to each section and allow the mask to work its magic for up to 20 minutes. Rinse out and follow up with your normal styling routine.
Whether you’re working with curls, coils or kinky hair, this mask will define your natural texture beautifully! Best of all, you can show your face some love at the same time with a skin mask.
