Everything You Need to Know About Rhassoul Clay: For Hair and Skin Detoxification!

Originating from regions of Africa, Rhassoul Clay is a powerful detox for our scalp.

But why does one need to detox the scalp?

As said, scalp detox plays a crucial role in growing healthy hair.

When our scalp is jammed with impurities as well as toxins, our hair follicles nearly choke out, and this leads to halting or slowing the hair growth.

Regular cleaning is a mandate. Rhassoul Clay is said to do a pretty good job of purifying our scalp so that our hair can grow uninterrupted and thicker without any blockages or impurities.

Never heard of Rhassoul Clay?

Don’t worry…It’s not your fault. Once upon a time, this clay used to be famous in Morocco as well as Egyptian regions as it had a lot of beauty benefits. But now again it’s gaining popularity.

Details: What is Rhassoul Clay and Where Does It Come from?

Rhassoul is a mineral-rich clay which is unearthed from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The name ‘Rhassoul’ comes from the Arabic word ‘rhassala’ which actually means ‘to wash’. Amongst the North African regions, the purpose of both soap and shampoo was served by this for over hundreds of years. It was one of a sought-after beautifying aid.

This ancient clay is said to be formed under the Atlas Mountains through the process of volcanic activity as well as geothermal changes. When first mined (i.e. during the initial stage), Rhassoul Clay is chunky, brown, and soap-like clay.

Post this, it is washed with mountain sourced river water, filtered and finally left to dry naturally in the desert sun. This nearly untreated as well as sun-dried clay has a smooth silk-like feel and it is pinkish brown in colour.

Rhassoul is said to be exceptionally high in minerals such as magnesium, silica, calcium and iron, thus, making it highly nourishing for both skin and hair. It’s also non-irritating and helps to moisturise and soften the skin.

Even today, Rhassoul Clay is a highly valued beauty ingredient. It is part of the beauty offerings made to the bride by the groom’s family on the day of the conclusion of Moroccan marriage.

Hair Benefits of Rhassoul Clay

Just like other clays, Rhassoul Clay has a negative charge – that is what helps in detoxifying our hair.

How does this happen?

The process:

When we combine clay and water, the clay swells and becomes gel-like. This gel binds to dirt as well as grease and during this process, it unclogs the hair follicles and cleans the scalp of all present impurities.

Just like other clays, Rhassoul does not lead to drying of hair. On the other hand, it’s best known to improve elasticity, moisturise and condition hair, and make them super soft. The crucial minerals in this ancient clay not only enhance hair at its roots but also encourage healthier new growth. It is even known to scale down hair loss as well as thinning.

Because of these soothing and healing effects, this clay is also beneficial with eczema, dandruff and dry, flaky skin.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
