We all need to start washing our hair with MUD shampoo right now

So, this may have just solved all of our problems when it comes to expensive shampoos and conditioners. One woman went on mission and appears to have come to the conclusion that we don’t need fancy products after all- just some dirt.

Mud—and the clay in it—is one of the oldest beauty ingredients in existence. 

The ingredient has often been used in clay and mud masks for both hair and skin. People adore the ingredient as it absorbs excess oils and can deep-clean your pores.

What happens if you wash your oil-prone hair with muck? According to Allure, amazing things.

The mud-based shampoo Shea Terra Organics Moroccan Mud-Poo (yes, poo, not an unfortunate typo) has been around for a while. The latest in mud products comes in powder form and requires you to ix the powder and water together to make a “muddy slurry” concoction.

Then it is ready to be used like any other shampoo, except that instead of the usual floral scent mud shampoo has a mintier aroma. Good to know.

Cosmetic chemist Randy Schueller explains: "Clay can absorb oil and help clean your scalp, and it contains tea tree oil, which does have some antifungal and antibacterial properties."

This is why mud shampoo leaves hair feeling clean and will allow you to go for three days without washing your hair. Just think of all of the time you can spend not getting up early to wash your hair on weekdays with this wonder product. 

However, Renee Jacques did note one issue with the mud shamppo:

“I do have one caveat about the mud-poo: It can be drying, so make sure you use a good amount of conditioner on the ends of your hair after using it. If you have dry hair, Shea Terra Organic's website suggests dropping a few squeezes of hair oil into your slurry before applying it.” 

She said that she will definitely be trying mud shampoo again in the future and considers it something of a must-have beauty product.
