My hair did not like bentonite clay treatment. My hair was dry and started breaking off badly, that was two weeks ago, it's just starting to get back to normal. I was really expecting it to work wonders on my hair like it did for so many other naturals. Could it have been the way that I used it. I mixed it with water then let it sit on my pre pooed hair for about 30 mins under a shower cap. As I was rinsing it out I could feel the middle section of my hair more coarse than normal.

Did I do something wrong?

I'm not saying you have to do all that though!! Try it with aloe vera juice and some oil and see how your hair responds. The avj is a lower pH than water, closer to hair's own pH, and for me feels awesome. Good luck!
