There is a clay that is found in Morocco that has been used as a soap for many years as it offers gentle cleansing action for skin and hair. It is completely free from surfactants or any other additives. This makes it an ideal for cleansing sensitive, blemished skin and sensitive scalp, as well as being effective against dandruff or oily hair.
Ghassoul is ideally suited to strengthen the hair; recommended for all hair types because it does not dry the hair, it reduces the production of sebum, while the hair is left shiny and soft.
Ghassoul has the same cleansing effect as a natural shampoo; it cleanses and reduces oiliness on the scalp and hair, without causing damage. Hair that is treated with Ghassoul is left looking wonderfully shiny and soft.
How to use:
Mix the clay with water in a glass or wooden bowl, using a wooden spoon until a homogeneous paste is formed. Apply the paste to the hair, face and body using circular motions. Rinse thoroughly.
- For oily skin: mix with rose water.
- For dry skin: mix with almond oil or argan oil.
- For dry hair: Leave for 5 – 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
- For oily hair: Leae for 15 – 20 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
