I have to admit it.

I just bought this because I wanted to put mud in my hair.

And that’s what this looks like. A container of mud with a reddish hue.


I purchased the 6 oz jar and that was enough for my whole head. Let me start with the positives. My hair felt super soft and springy afterwards. It was moisturized without feeling heavily weighed down or oily. It also gives your hair a cool red look while it’s in. I felt like a Himba lady for a minute :) There was not much of a scent and you can’t beat the price for the ingredients. Overall, it’s a wonderful treatment.

Wet hair...after rinsing...and rinsing...and rinsing :)


Unfortunately…it was hard to wash out. It wasn’t as hard to wash out as cassia or ZSC but I had to go back several times to rinse because I’d find a patch of it here or there, mostly near my scalp. I can usually rinse out my conditioner while it’s in big twists but I had to undo them to make sure I’d gotten it all out. Truth be told, I still had a small patch in my middle part and it made my scalp look red.

It also had very little slip. I like to detangle while I apply my deep conditioner. I was pretty much not able to do that. From reading the website, I gather this mask is supposed to be a henna-like treatment. If you think of it that way, then I should not have expected slip in the first place.

    I have a full head of highlights…Did you get the impression at all that this will “dye” hair, or alter the color of hair in anyway?

    Shari, no, they specifically say on the website that it has the conditioning effects of henna without the color. My hair is the same color.

    Naturallytia I just detangled when as I styled my hair.

    I tried this and after everything, like you I realized it was suppose to be treated like a henna treatment. I rinsed several times trying to get it out of my hair. It did not come out until I used a cheap conditioner, like I do with my henna.

    Butters N Bras have the best products I have ever tried. I always had a problem with my dry hair, I tried different kind of product until I got the shea butter deep conditionning, and the aloe vera gel. They are wonderful, perfect products. They moisturize your hair and prevent freezing….and I loooooooooooooooooove the smell. I wish if I could have all the products she has!!!!
