Review: Aztec Secret: Indian Healing Clay

I tried this product on a whim... And when I say I whim I mean I saw a tweet about it, bought it, and used it without even knowing what it was supposed to do. Bad idea. Bad idea because that was way too impulsive for my liking. Anyway I ended up liking it and using it in more than one way.

How I used it: I mixed equal parts of water and clay as instructed and applied to clean, freshly shampooed hair.  After about 20 minutes I rinsed clean, and did not apply a conditioner.

How I liked it: I didn't really see much of a difference initially, my curls did look more defined which is never a big deal for me. I did notice how clean my hair felt. I had mix feelings about it, I like my hair clean but this felt TOO clean. After some research I discovered that it was used for cleansing the hair and removing buildup, which I never get. Once I found out exactly what it was supposed to do, I decided it may not be for my hair (although it did a great job and I would recommend it, I just don't use that much product to need it unless its for post-protective styling reasons).

After this trial and error, I used it on my face as a mask (it's original intended purpose). It made my skin soft, and rinsed off without drying it out, which is a big plus for me. I don't see any difference in my skin yet, but I will keep you updated, my hair is causing some breakouts on my forehead, so I'm excited to see if it works!
