Finally tried my Terressentials Hair Wash in Left Coast Lemon this morning. I diluted about a tablespoon in bottled water and placed in a plastic applicator bottle. It was a very running consistency and I applied to wet hair using the applicator bottle. The website for Terressentials suggests this for extremely curly hair. Working the undiluted mud into highly textured can make for a hassle to apply and even bigger hassle to rinse out. I know from when I made my own bentonite clay mixture. Anyway, after rinsing it out this morning, and rejoicing in how much I love the smell, which lingers, I noticed my hair felt kind of funny. It was moisturized, and I didn't feel the need to condition but it still felt odd. Not bad, just funny. As if something was still on it. And that is when I knew. Terressentials suggests a detox period for the first five to seven days of using the mud wash, in order to fully remove all toxins and chemicals from the hair. I myself haven't used a silicone product in a few months. I was hoping I wouldn't need a detox period, as other naturals have claimed to not need one. But my hair has spoken, and I plan to start fully detoxing my hair starting tomorrow. The page of FAQ's for Terressentials can be found HERE. It explains the detox period and addresses other questions/concerns people may have about the Mud Wash. It is so soon in the game to say how I really feel about the mud wash, but so far I like it. I actually prefer cleansing methods that don't involve suds (co-washing, mud washing). After rinsing out the mud wash this morning, I sprayed my hair with aloe vera juice and water, then applied some QB Castor and Moringa Softening Serum, then applied some OH Hair Dew. I plan to repeat this for the next week or so. If I continue to love the Terressentials, I will be buying a 16oz fairly soon.
