Ideal alternative to co-wash. Particularly suitable for oily scalps and hair that tends to build up. Cleansing effect without low-poo or shampoo. Helps with limescale deposits caused by hard water.
Are you ready to give your hair and scalp a natural break?
Then get to know the Clay Wash from Flora&Curl based on clay, which was specially developed for wavy and curly hair. The clay wash is both cleansing and nourishing. Press the reset button and let your curls get a fresh start. While the clay frees your hair and scalp from deposits that arise from hard water, for example, fruit powder made from coconut and banana provides intensive care for tired and stressed curls.
The unique formula of this clay wash is also enriched with peppermint oil and eucalyptus oil. Not only does it gently cleanse without any surfactants - making it just as gentle as a co-wash - but it also gives each individual strand shine, vitality and definition. Curls crave to be gently cleansed with as little and as gentle surfactants as possible so as not to strip them of their natural protection necessary to retain moisture and proteins in the hair. This clay wash is an ideal alternative to co-wash, especially for anyone who suffers from an oily scalp. It offers intensive cleansing without the use of a low-poo or shampoo, and also leaves the hair wonderfully soft and nourished.
In a bowl, mix 2 teaspoons of Clay-Wash powder with 6 teaspoons of warm water to activate the product. Attention: Do not use metals to mix, otherwise the effect of the negative charge of the clay will be neutralized!
Apply it to the scalp, and if necessary also to the hair. Ideally, the hair is already damp and completely detangled. If you divide it into sections and work it into each section, you can distribute the Clay Wash even more evenly so that it can optimally develop its effect on each individual hair. Cover your shoulders with a towel as you work in. Leave it on, for example under a shower cap for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse carefully with warm water. Optionally, you can gently massage your scalp while rinsing. You'll be amazed at how soft your hair can feel without conditioner! After deep cleansing with this product, other care and styling products have an uncontaminated basis to develop their effect more intensively.
Attention: The Clay Wash is not suitable for colored hair.
How is Clay Wash different from other cleaning products?
The Clay Wash from Flora & Curl is a purely natural product that frees the hair and scalp of all unnecessary deposits. The unique formula is a mix of cleansing clay, nourishing fruit powders and stimulating essential oils and is suitable for all curl types. It contains no synthetic petrochemicals, artificial fragrances, sulfates, silicones, harsh detergents, soaps or waxes. Since the Clay-Wash does not contain soap or other foams, no soap lime or foam will be created during use. The clay used is very powerful. Due to its negative charge (anionic), it has the ability to remove positively charged deposits (cationic), for example from hair products, from the hair and scalp. The Clay Wash therefore absorbs excess oils, toxins, heavy metals and impurities while stimulating blood circulation in the scalp.
It does a good job in two ways: on the one hand, it detoxifies the scalp and hair, and on the other hand, it brings them into a balanced initial state without radically removing the protective oil film from the skin and hair.
When in the routine should the clay wash be used?
It is used in step 2 of curl love, when cleaning. It replaces the Co-Wash or the Low-Poo. You can optionally work a nourishing conditioner into your hair afterwards, depending on your preference. After the clay wash, the hair can already be soft, shiny and detangled, even without conditioner. See how your hair feels after the treatment and then decide.
When and how often should the Clay Wash be used?
Use it as a cleanser when your hair feels unclean, stressed, heavy, or full of build-up. You can also use it on dandruff. You can also use it every 3-4 weeks to give your hair a break from co-wash or low-poo shampoos and it is also suitable as a replacement for a stronger deep cleansing with sulfates - if you are even considering such a deep cleansing , as it would, strictly speaking, not conform to the Curly Girl method.
How much clay wash should I use?
This depends a lot on your hair. On average, 2-3 tablespoons of Clay-Wash are recommended per application.
Why is it not suitable for colored hair?
Clay-based products are generally not recommended for color-treated hair as the absorption of the detoxifying cleanse can also remove chemicals such as artificial color from the hair. However, you can test it on a strand of hair; every hair reacts differently.

Clay minerals intensively cleanse the scalp by absorbing excess dirt, flakes and debris from the hair. Meanwhile, banana and coconut extracts make the curls soft and shiny. The minerals in the clay and the peppermint oil stimulate the scalp, encouraging stronger hair growth.
