Rhassoul Mud Treatment
Versatile mud packed with minerals.
Here in the shop we call this WonderMud. Rhassoul (sometimes called Ghassoul) has been used for thousands of years for softening and soothing, and is the mud that's used in those very expensive spa body wraps. It's incredibly versatile and leaves skin looking and feeling fantastic. You can use it as a face pack, as a marvellous bath soak and, most spectactularly, to wash hair with (be warned, don't use this product on your hair unless you're prepared for volume and bounce of epic proportions).
Rhassoul behaves in a unique way when it comes into contact with water. It forms a gel-like consistency, and it cleans skin gently and without affecting the natural balance of oils at the surface. This makes it perfect for those with very sensitive skins but, most especially, those that suffer with psoriasis. It's not just a beauty treatment, it has soothing properties that make it perfect to calm itching and help to very gently soften the plaquing that occurs in a bad attack of psoriasis. Basically, we can't rave enough about it.
Full instructions for use are attached to the bottom of the pot but, to give you an idea, one pot should make roughly ten face packs, at least five hair washes or three really good bath soaks. To make it really special, add a couple of drops of your favourite essential oil - rose, for example, would be great in a face pack.
Product Testimonials Rhassoul Mud Treatment
I have discoid lupus which has left me prone to various skin complaints including severe inflammation of the scalp with distressing hair loss. I also have baby fine hair which means I end up with bed hair in the morning so have to restyle my hair every day. If I just wet my hair to restyle it becomes dull and lank and I am always worried about the build up of styling products. I wash my hair with a neem shampoo that I have found very effective and the next two to three days I place a heaped teaspoon of rhassoul in a plastic cup and mix with hot water. I pour this over wet hair and gently massage into my scalp for a minute, comb through and then rinse and apply suncoat styling spray and blow dry. You end up with beautiful shiny healthy hair! Yes it is messy but the mud does not stain and yes you feel that you are simply washing your hair with water but as a daily wash it really does work and gives body to fine hair.
I have naturally curly but very fine and frizzy hair, and the older I get the drier and more horrible my hair feels. Applying water and shampoo (even nice PNS shampoo) turns it into a massive ratty dreadlock on top of my head, and I need to spend 20 minutes and half a bottle of conditioner just to get my fingers through it, which pulls all the curl out. And then...I tried this wonder mud after a beach day so my hair was in a right state. What gorgeous stuff! There were no dreadlocks, no tangles, no conditioner and it dried all soft and bouncy and curly again, plus it didn't need washing for two days afterwards, and when I did wash with shampoo again it was STILL in lovely condition. Love it, love it, love it.
