MY CURL DIARY: Ghassoul Clay

This post is powered by Brand Backer. For more information on my disclosure click here.

I’ve heard of using clay as a hair treatment, but until now never knew that it was all that beneficial.  When Zakia’s Morrocco sent me their Ghassoul Clay to try I was ready to use it on my curls and my face.

What it does:

Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask – A weekly mask with natural and organic clay from deep inside the Ancient Atlas Mountains of Morocco are the perfect skin treatment for cleaning, detoxifying, toning and rejuvenating. A facial mask treatment made from Ghassoul clay can be relaxing and give your skin a new healthy glow. Ghassoul clay’s most impressive properties in skin improvement are its capacity of absorption and adsorption due to its high level of ion exchange. Ghassoul is a mineral rich, light brown clay that blends extremely well with water making its application to the face and skin a smooth and delightful experience. Use on skin and hair – it even makes for a fabulous shampoo; mix a small amount of powder in your favorite shampoo – wash and rinse. Super cleansing!

How I used it:
I mixed some up with water and olive oil (which my hair loves, but you can use your fave – coconut, argan, etc.) I applied to my ends as after applying conditioner.


I also mixed up a thick paste for my face with just water.

My results:
I thought my hair would be dry, but it felt pretty good. The face mask really tightened my skin (a good thing for shrinking these pores!)

Why I like the product/brand:

Zakia’s Morocco products are 100% pure and natural.  The company is a woman-owned,  family business which works with women’s cooperatives in the Agadir region of Morocco.

I’m looking for some unique ghassoul clay recipes for skin or hair treatments. Please drop me a comment if you have an suggestions or tell me if you ever have or would try clay for your hair?
