Sahara Clay

Description Baka Beauty's Sahara Clay is an Original, 100% natural, clay hair treatment and facial mask. This 15 minute treatment can add years of life to your hair. It is an excellent deep cleansing treatment for locks. Sahara Clay can be used to deep cleanse hair and skin. The all natural clay extracts impurities from hair and skin leaving a clean, smooth finish. Sahara Clay is:
  • Hair deep cleanser (especially good for locks)
  • Skin cleanser-makes a wonderful facial mask
Sahara clay is great for locks because it deep cleanses like no shampoo can and leaves no residue. Use periodically to leave your locks squeaky clean. The clay will never unravel formed or mature locks. It is a deep cleanser which removes impurities from the hair and skin, deeper than soap or shampoo. It is not harmful to the hair and can remain on the hair with heated moisture (heating cap) for up to 1 hour. Without a heating cap it can remain on the hair until it the clay begins to harden state. Then rinse and condition. The Masai tribe in Eastern Africa use a red clay on their hair. This provides a gentle hair relaxer effect on the hair. Sahara Clay will have this same effect. Sahara Clay can safely be used on straight (white) hair as well as on African American hair. It provides a deep cleansing and will make white, gray or blonde hair brighten. Sahara Clay will gradually relax the hair, to a certain extent.

As a facial mask, Sahara Clay will deep cleanse the skin, leaving a smoother appearance.

Safe for all hair types.
Ingredients 100% Sahara Clay. The Sahara Clay is an all natural clay directly from the dry desert earth. When soaked in hot or warm water, it becomes a mud.
Instructions As a hair cleanser or finish to Natural-Laxer
  • Soak a little Sahara Clay in 2-1/2 ounces of hot tap water.
    Each package is enough for 2-3 applications.
  • Stir into smooth paste, adding water as needed
  • After shampooing and conditioning, smooth onto wet hair with hands using upward motion from roots to ends
  • Smooth onto edges of hair
  • Leave in for several minutes. At least 15 minutes.
  • Do not shampoo after clay treatment
  • Rinse with water to leave a clean lustrous finish
  • Condition and moisturize
Each package is enough for an average of three treatments. Depending on the amount of hair you have, you may get a little more or a little less.

As a facial mask
  • Mix as instructed above. Place clay on face and let sit for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Rinse off
  • Do not leave on the face for longer than 20 minutes. Face may appear reddish immediately after rinsing because the impurities are drawn to the surface. The redness will subside quickly. It also can be used as a poultice, for acne, or boils.

As an alternative to the Natural-Laxer
  • Mix, as instructed
  • Smooth throughout hair
  • Apply a plastic cap
  • Sit with a thermal heat cap for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Rinse with water (do not shampoo)
  • Condition and moisturize.

Tip: If too much Sahara Clay is mixed, or too much water is added, you can drain off the excess water and allow the Clay to air dry for later use.

I used the Sahara Clay for years. I mixed it with a bit of olive oil and rose water. I have used a heat cap for one hour and rinsed thoroughly. I rolled my hair, sat under the dryer. When it was dry, I wrapped it and tied it up over-night. The next morning it looked amazing. Had a nice bounce. I almost got whip-lash from flinging it so much (lol). I used it 3 times at 7 day intervals. On the 21st day, I rinsed it well, left it wet and applied a crème activator to it. I let it dry naturally. BEAUTIFUL. Now I use the (already mixed version). Much easier. Try it and let me know how you like it. Oh! We did my Great Grand Daughters hair for her first day of school. Thank goodness there are no ink wells in the desk. She also almost got whip lash. Enjoy!

Great Product!

Tried the Sahara Clay on my hair last night for the first time and was surprised at how quickly it worked on my hair. I followed the instructions for application and used a heat cap for 20 minutes, such great results for such a short amount of time, I will leave it longer next time. Hair felt soft and my texture was more visibly defined and still looks great today, cant stop admiring my coily curls! Can't wait to try it as a facial mask too only wish it came in additional sizes...

so I have very course dry 4b hair, this is my 5th time buying this. I love how it makes my hair soft and loosen my curl pattern, in manageable way. Plus I have noticed a difference in the strength of my hair, because my hair 4b it's all brittle and it can easily brake, this has help to strengthen that. !!!

After only one use my hair was so soft and easy to manage - even the new growth. I used regular tap water this time, I plan to try it with the rose water next time.

Good, But Less than Hoped For
September 17, 2009
It was easy to mix and apply, but the directions on the jar was specifically for cleansing vs. an alternative to relaxing so a bit confusing at first. It did exactly what was advertised, softly relaxed my natural curls. Left hair a little dry, but my curls are extremely tight so I'm going to try the Natural-Laxer next.
ProsAll natural, used on both face and hair without any irriation or burning. Great cleanser.
ConsLeft hair a little dry so conditioning after is a MUST. A bit hard to rinse out due to tiny rocks being in the clay.

What is the difference between the Sahara clay and Natural-Laxer? What are the different results you would see from each product?
If you are looking for smoothing of the hair and relaxation of the curl pattern, you are going to get more effective and faster results with Natural-Laxer MIX which has Sahara Clay along with a combination of herbs.
