Say Yes to Summer Hair!

Summer is almost here! And ladies, time to give your tresses a beautiful makeover. A deep conditioning at your stylist's salon is always a great start but another and less expensive option comes from Zakia's Morocco Beauty
Zakia's products are all natural and is "based upon ancient beauty treatments handed down over the centuries from Moroccan women to their daughters."

Their Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask is extremely versatile - use it on your hair, body and face! - and currently for sale on their website ($10.99/originally $19.99).

 I was especially interested in the idea of a hair mask and the results did not disappoint. The company offers two suggestions for using their hair mask based on your time commitments.
The first option for a complete hair mask requires:
- Create your mask (combining 1 Tbsp. of Ghassoul + 5 Tbsp. of water)
- Rub gently into scalp and hair; leave for 5-10 minutes
- Shampoo with your favourite shampoo and rinse.
The second option for a Ghassoul deep clean shampoo requires:
 - Combine a palm full of your favourite shampoo & an equal amount of Ghassoul Powder
- Shampoo as normal and rinse.

NOTE: I learned from trial and error that it would be difficult to open the jar of Ghassoul Powder with wet hands and shampoo already in your hand. So I wet my hair & combined the shampoo/powder before hopping in the shower.
 So, what about the results? Very nice! The mask is described as a "natural way to clean hair, remove excess oil build up, treat split ends and generally improve the health of your scalp and hair than a regular hair mask."

I was skeptical that I would see the results so quickly but yes - my hair felt amazing afterwards! Definitely not the same as a professional deep conditioning at the salon but this is only $19.99 ($10.99 on sale) and IMO you get more than what you paid for. My hair feels healthier, less oily and people even noted that my hair looked shinier after even one mask.

Lovely readers, I would highly recommend trying out Zakia's Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask! It is currently on sale for $10.99 (savings of $9.00) so there's never been a better time to buy your own jar of Ghassoul Clay.  

Zakia's has also given you lovelies a 20% off discount for the next month! Use this coupon code (ZMBLOG-191) when making your purchases.
