  • Non-metal bowl and utensils


  • 1/2 cup bentonite clay powder
  • 3-9 tbsp water this is dependent on whether or not you're using apple cider vinegar or essential oils
  • 6 tbsp apple cider vinegar optional - if you're not using apple cider vinegar, use water instead
  • 3 tbsp carrier oil of your choice you can use coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, almond oil, etc...


  • Start by measuring the bentonite clay and add to a non-metal bowl.
  • If using any carrier oils, mix them in with the clay now.
  • Then, add your water or apple cider vinegar and stir the concoction using a wooden or plastic utensil.
  • Let the mask aerate for a few seconds.
  • Stir really well until the consistency is yogurt-like.
  • If you feel like the mask is too thick, add a little bit more water. If it's too thin, add a little bit more clay.
  • Saturate wet or damp hair and leave on for 25 minutes. Rinse out while massaging the scalp, and follow up with shampoo and conditioner.
