Pure Earth Hair Wash

This hair wash is pure as pure can get, no lather, no fillers, no fragrance, no preservatives, no chemicals at all nothing man made everything in this hair wash comes from mother earth. Simple pure ingredient made up of organic Aloe Vera juice, clay minerals, plant extract and essential oils that's it.

It comes in five different flavors for us lady's with different hair types because we ain't all made up the same way. The web site is well informative with all you need to know about their business and the meaning behind natural products. I used Lavender Garden in the past and i just restock with two big bottles one lavender garden and the other left coast lemon.

This product rocks, it is different for those who love to lather up with big bubbles that strips our hair. If that's what you like this is not it be warned. If you have a lot of build up and cons that you would like to ride your hair of and go to a more natural product lineup, this is good for you. If you just wont to maintain and wash with this as you would with a regular shampoo this is good for you, if you go on the Terressential web page there is step by step instructions for the hair detox process.

I use this product in the shower, i wash my hair in eight big braids, let the water run until my hair is soak then i take down one braid at a time apply mud wash and detangle with fingers and then twist it up, then move on to another braid you get the picture. When all my hair is soaking with the mud wash i let it sit for a few i might go outside fully clothed (i am not a nudes) and let the sun help to bake the mud with a shower cap on so it stays moist and not dry out. Then i get back in the shower and undo one twist at a time and let the water flow and wash the mud out of my hair not disturbing the curls too much i will detangle with my finger while the water is running through the hair and then re-twist and move on to the next twist. Now i only do this mud wash ever seven to eight week, in between my mud wash i conditioner wash every weekend.

Pros: This product cleans the hair without stripping it of its natural oil and helps to balance your oil production. It makes my curls pop like crazy, my hair is shinny, soft and comes alive, you don't need to use a conditioner after using this clay wash and i could detangle with my fingers when i use this product. Sweet

Cons: I use this when i am taking a shower and i just do not like to wash my hair when i am in the shower because it takes too long and i am wet and feel icky. That's it

  1. Hi there, Earthly Reality! Many thanks for the kind words about our "mud" Hair Wash. We all greatly appreciate you taking the time to tell others about our cool Hair Wash. We're also very glad to hear that you like our Pure Earth Hair Wash as much as we all do! That's great!

    By the way, did you happen to catch us on the Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs show -- the funny episode (titled "Animal Barber") where Mike comes to visit us for the day and "helps" us to make our Hair Wash? Here's a link to the loopy show if you haven't seen it:

    Oh, and we're also wondering if you saw our amusing Organic Rap video? If you haven't seen this yet, here's a link:


    Your friends,

    The Terressentials team

  2. Thanks for stopping by, i have not seen the above links so i have to take a look, i look forward to see the rap video.

  3. Thanks for the review. I have used a few Terressentials products in the past, but not the mud hair wash. Has this product and conditioner washing (co-washing) replaced natural shampoos and shampoo bars for you? I am still curious as to how conditioner cleans the hair AND scalp, although it's pretty clear that clay and minerals will clean just fine. Please let me know your perspective. Thanks!

  4. Hi Scentualsoundtracks, i think it depends on the type of products you use in your hair for example from past experience if i use product with bees wax i get a lot of build up and i can fell the gunk in my hair and need to shampoo it out. So i stay away from products with wax because i co-wash my hair on the weekends and only shampoo/clay wash my hair every month or every two months depending on how my hair feels. When i co-wash i use Darcy twisting cream to twist and curl my hair and to maintain it during the week i apply this coconut and shea hair cream i made and this had more coconut oil in it than shea butter. So when it comes time to condi wash i have minimal to no build up. I do not use products with cons and silicone and i am going to try and see if i use my coconut shea cream after washes and see how my twist and curl turns out this weekend. Let me know if this answers your question.

  5. This is very helpful; thanks. I have locs and always wondered how I could do a co-wash and have it be effective. What I use are all-natural shampoo bars once a week as well and natural conditioners from Darcy's Botanicals maybe once or twice a month. I also use baking soda and ACV rinses as needed and I spritz and oil my scalp and hair ends a few times throughout the week. I also don't use anything with beeswax.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. Is there anywhere else to buy this tessential shampoo? buying it from there company there is shipping ok but than the sales tax? Barbie

  7. Hey Barbara, take a look and see if this helps

  8. Hi, thanks for this post! I've been using terresentials for a bit now and I do use a leave in (Oyin Hemp) but don't use a shea butter mixture...I might try that next. It really is an amazing product, I know it's kind of expensive but it's so worth it. I get the same effect where my curls clump together and are so happy and moisturized while it's in my hair and after I wash it out. I also do ACV rinses because the water in my area is you do them too? Also...beautiful hair!
