Doing A Mud Mask The Old Fashioned Dirty Way
When I was a little girl I overheard my mother tell a friend she was going to try an at-home mud mask. Thinking it was a great idea I proceeded to pour some water into the flower gardens at home, whip up a muddy mess and paint it on the faces of me, my brother and the neighbor kid down the street.

I was beaming with pride when I went inside to show my mom who was of course horrified. After cleaning up myself, my little brother and the neighbor kid my mom instructed me in no uncertain terms to stay away from the backyard mud.
Of course mud masks have been around forever. They're messy but when made with healthy mud and not the kind from the rose garden, mud masks are effective deep-cleansers.
They contain negatively charged ions which attract positively charged impurities.
Mud Masks Are Beneficial For Stressed Out Tresses
Over the years beauty experts discovered that mud masks are also beneficial for stressed out tresses and a variety of mud masks sprung up from different manufactures. In reality a true mud mask applied to hair is not the ideal treatment. While it might work for the scalp, the drying principles of mud can soak up much needed hair oils.

The Pampering Hair Mud Conditioner was thick, creamy and very rich. The aroma is light, but fragrant. It does not have an overwhelming or cloying aroma.
I was wondering how this conditioner would work for my naturally wavy/curly and dry hair since it does contain silicones (Dimethicone).
It's hard to predict how my hair will respond to silicones but in this case it made my hair feel great. The structure of my hair cuticle means that it's always slightly open. As a result I need lots of constant moisturizing and conditioning. Not only did I use this product as a rinse-out conditioner, I used it for my Conditioning Only (CO). This was a great surprise because sometimes 'cones just make my hair feel coated but in this case it didn't.
