Rhassoul Hair & Scalp Cleanser
Rhassoul Hair & Scalp Cleanser
Washing hair with... mud?! It seems to defy logic, but this all-natural soap-free cleanser effectively removes oils and impurities – cleansing without drying and leaving your hair so soft, you may decide to leave your conditioner on the shelf - permanently!
Rhassoul offers a completely different hair-cleansing experience that simply has to be tried to be believed.
It's understandable why this unique clay has been a favorite in spas and hammams for centuries – it's ideal for all hair types. And if you have a sensitive scalp, this may just become your favorite hair cleanser!
How to Use
For a single application, simply mix the contents of one packet with your desired amount of water, shake, and distribute the liquid throughout hair. Massage (as with a normal shampoo) and rinse off. For an instant scalp soothing hair mask and extra cleansing power, simply leave the mixture on for 2-5 minutes. Rinse. Dry and set hair as usual.

A Bit About Rhassoul
It seems impossible that a clay can cleanse hair, but Rhassoul (also known as Ghassoul, Moroccan Soap Clay, and Moroccan Lava Clay) has the ability to cleanse both scalp and hair gently and effectively, leaving it soft and silky smooth.
Tolerated by even sensitive skin and very dry hair, Rhassoul is found only one place on Earth – the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.
Rhassoul consists mainly of (the stevensite mineral) ghassoulite, but also contains minerals such as quartz, gypsum, dolomite, magnesium, and sepiolite. It belongs to the montmorillonite group of minerals. Minerals in this group increase in volume as they absorb.
Fun fact: rhassoul can absorb over 150% of its weight.
How it Works
Rhassoul cleanses by drawing impurities and fats from skin and hair. Because it is sebaceous gland-friendly (read: it won't irritate those little glands that produce sebum to lubricate your skin and hair), both hair and skin are left clean and soft.
One might think a clay that absorbs impurites will also draw moisture, but rhassoul 'magically' only absorbs the undesirable bits from skin and hair.
Sound too good to be true? Rhassoul simply has to be tried to be believed.
No Soap - No Suds - Yet Clean
Switching to rhassoul from regular shampoo might feel odd at first - there are no suds and no lather, but it is a truly effective cleanser - passing even the traditional 'squeak test' after rinsing. Are you a fan of pre-shampoo coconut oil treatment? Rhassoul will remove every last bit – simply leave the mixture on for 2-5 minutes before rinsing.
Developing This Hair Cleanser
After experiencing the many positive aspects of cleansing my hair with rhassoul, I wanted to find a way to take 'the bother' out of using it.
Normally, rhassoul is sprinkled into water, then allowed to absorb for 5 - 10 minutes before stirring. The mixture is then adjusted with more water (or rhassoul) until the desired consistency is achieved. This almost always takes longer than expected. The mixture is then applied as a hair mask, left to sit, then rinsed off. Despite the never-fail great results, it's a time consuming, messy process.
After experimenting with numerous proportions, application methods, and packaging possibilities, I am happy to offer a truly all natural hair cleanser that is not only easy to make and a pleasure to use, but gives a consistently beautiful result.
I hope you enjoy using this product as much as I enjoyed developing it.
