Bentonite clay, also called Montmorillonite, is a very popular clay because of its purifying and detoxifying effect. It is made up of many minerals, including calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron and potassium.
You can use bentonite clay:

- As a detox hair mask. Mix half a cup of bentonite clay with half a cup of aloe vera juice and cup of apple cider vinegar. Apply in the hair and let it soak in for 20-30 minutes.
