Popularly known as Multani mitti in India, Fuller's earth is one of best known natural products for glowing skin and beautiful hair. This natural product, which is easily available and commonly used in India, is now catching the eye of the Western world as well because of its cleansing properties.

Multani mitti and reetha

Reetha is a very popularly used hair cleanser used in India. Women usually soak reetha in water overnight and use its extract in the morning to wash their hair. It is often combined with other ingredients such as shikakai and amla to prepare a natural homemade shampoo.

Soak multani mitti and reetha in a bowl of warm water overnight. You can also use reetha powder for this hair mask. Make a smooth paste of the two ingredients and apply it on the hair in the morning. Leave this pack on the hair for about 30 minutes and then wash it off with plain water. This reetha and multani mitti hair pack is especially good for oily and greasy hair.


Multani mitti and oil treatment

If you are worried about your dull and lackluster hair, try this hair mask. Massage your scalp with coconut or olive oil. Soak a towel in warm water and wrap it around your head. This allows the scalp to soak the oil properly.

Make a smooth paste of multani mitti with water. Add a little lemon to it. Apply this paste on your hair for about 30 minutes. Wash it with warm water. Do not use shampoo the same day.

Multani mitti can be drying for the hair. The oil treatment done before applying the hair mask will ensure that your hair does not feel too dry. However, if you want you can take a little bit of your regular favorite hair oil and apply it.

Multani mitti and egg

This hair pack is very useful to get silky, smooth and straight hair. Combine multani mitti with egg white. You can also use the yolk of the egg for this pack, provided you can stand its smell. Add a little bit of coconut or olive oil to this paste. Apply it on your hair and leave it on for about an hour. The egg and the oil will condition your hair and strengthen it. The clay will clean the scalp and hair and straighten your hair.

Multani mitti can be combined with other ingredients such as curd or buttermilk as well to make a very useful hair mask. Multani mitti does have a drying effect on the hair. So, if you have dry hair, make sure to use a generous amount of oil after washing it off.
