- Immediately cover hair with a plastic cap and allow to sit for 35-45 minutes. Please do not carry overnight or for long hours.
- Rinse well with lukewarm water or room temperature water, massaging hair and scalp to ensure all traces of clay are removed from the hair. When you think you have rinsed enough, rinse some more.

This treatment makes your hair curly, soft, and shiny. It could last for days.
You can apply this clay mask to your face. It helps tighten your face pores and eradicate extra oil, dirt, and bacteria that cause blackheads, acne, and pimples.
