below are the ingredients i use and how it benefits the hair and hair growth

Bentonite Clay is naturally occurring clay found in Fort Benton, Wyoming and to the rest of the parts of the earth. This kind of clay has been widely used as detoxifier and has been known already in the field of alternative medicines since the primitive times. Human beings make use of it as detoxifying agent that gets rid of body toxins, it can be used as skin cleanser, and antiseptic. This makes the clay very beneficial in the human being’s digestive systems, skins and hair; thus, it is usually present in personal care products such as lotions, shampoos, conditioners and creams.

Bentonite clay when used on hair traps the residues to accumulate in the scalp and the fungus that cause the scalp to itch. To establish the level of benefits that Bentonite clay can give to the hair, one needs to be informed first about the minerals that are found in the said clay and how these elements and minerals can help in the development of the hair and in treating hair problems.

Bentonite clay contains:

Magnesium
It is a very necessary mineral in the body so cells in the body can survive. It is an anti-aging mineral used by the cells to function and produce energy. It rejuvenates and detoxifies the cells. Thus, without these minerals, the hair is not capable of growing and it becomes dull.

Potassium
This is the mineral that transport cellular wastes into the external surface so it will be washed away. Without this, the wastes build up, causing the cells to malfunction and will not be able to produce more cells. With potassium, the hair becomes healthy and supple making it resistant to breakage and split ends.

Silica
If silica is deficient, the hair becomes lifeless and dull, prone to split ends and the scalp turns dry for it aids in moisture retention. When the natural moisture is retained in the body, the connective tissues become resilient so, pre-mature aging possibility is hindered. Thus, silica can provide strength to the hair, stops hair fall and hair breakage.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR BENEFITS
Hair is on the mildly acidic side of the pH scale and has an ideal pH of 4.5 to 5.5, which is close to that of an apple cider vinegar rinse (pH 2.9).

On the other hand, many of the hair care products we use, such as soap-based shampoos, bleaches, hair colors, and permanents are strongly alkaline.

Rinsing with apple cider vinegar will help balance the pH of your hair and remove the buildup that can result from the use of these styling products and inexpensive shampoos.

Rinsing will also close the numerous cuticle scales which cover and protect the surface of each hair shaft. This imparts a smoother surface which reflects more light and as a result leaves your hair shinier, smoother and easier to manage.

OLIVE OIL HAIR BENEFITS.
Olive oil is used for cooking purposes all over the world because of the various health benefits that it offers. However, not many people know that there is a link between olive oil and hair growth. While it is said to be good for treating several skin ailments, olive oil is said to be the best cure for hair loss. There are several benefits of using olive oil for hair growth which are as follows:
One of the best advantages of using olive oil for hair is that it helps in preventing as well as curing hair loss. Most people have hair loss because of the presence of a hormone called DTH which causes the hair follicle shaft to decrease. Applying olive oil to hair prevents the production of DTH hormones on the scalp, thus getting rid of the problem of hair loss.
The presence of antioxidants in olive oil makes it an appropriate hair oil that promotes overall scalp health. The hair damage caused due to excessive use of chemical based hair products can be treated with the help of olive oil, thus giving room for growth of healthy hair.
Apart from the fact that olive oil is an effective treatment for hair loss, it also acts as a natural conditioner for hair. In other words, applying olive oil on hair makes it shiny and soft.
The antifungal and antibacterial properties of olive oil is a great way to get rid of problems like dandruff and head lice. Moreover, massaging your hair with a mixture of olive oil and lavender oil is very relaxing and acts as a great stress buster.
