Moroccan Rhassoul Clay

I really love using this clay as a clarifying treatment when I have a lot of product build-up. It cleans my scalp and hair really good and makes my curls clump together more. Since I have very thin hair strands I make sure I deep condition afterwards to bring in more moisture. A least expensive alternative is to use Bentonite Clay, but I like the Rhassoul as a nice spa treatment and the way it clumps my curls together.As far as application, I just mix with warm water and add a little EVOO to make it easier to apply, add a shower cap and apply heat either through a dryer or a heavy scarf. Whatever product I have left over, I apply to my face and neck as a mud treatment since both (Rhassoul and Bentonite Clay) can be used for the skin. I purchase my products at the below location/sites:

Winter Protective Styles

Hi Curlies!

Trying to find a good winter protective style that is professional and not time-consuming. I noticed a drastic difference in my hair with the cooler weather and don't want to have to rewet my hair which leads to frizz and dryness. Any suggestions? I'm in the awkward stage of growing out my hair from my BC so would love to hear fellow curlies suggestions.
