1 Answer:


There is no valid medical literature regarding the composition of clay which is clearly beneficial for hair care.

Clay which is usually used for generations for the treatment of body skin and hair is clay that contains certain chemical compositions (Bentonite clay). So not all clay soils in nature can be used to treat hair.

So, we have not been able to provide information on what content in clay soil is useful for hair care.

From the medical literature we found, clay (bentonite clay) turned out to function to absorb certain plant poisons and pesticide content. In addition, the function of clay soils needs to be further investigated.
