Terressentials Do's and Don'ts

For those that don't know what's Terressentails read HERE or HERE

Do Not

1. Do not get in the shower and wash your hair, apply mud to your hair out the shower in sections you can thank me later.

2. Get to know this new mud wash routine before trying to master it, do what works for you the first month or so and then ease into eliminating conditioners and leave-ins. If you are a trouper and can go without conditioner good for you.

3. When the mud is in your hair and your finish with your detangling do not put a shower cap over your hair. This is where the magic happens to help and lift the dirt, oil and butter from your scalp and hair you have to allow the mud to dry a little so let it sit for 30 min to an hour.

4. Keep in mind that for the first month or so your hair will be detoxing so it will not look its best or feel so good but keep at it, i know you can.

5. Try not to wash your hair with the mud every week more like every 3-4 weeks.

Please Do

1. Detangle and get out as much shed hair as possible before you wet hair and apply mud wash.

2. Make sure your hair is dripping wet before apply mud to hair this helps with slip and with detangling.

3. Apply mud to scalp and massage with the pads of your finger then apply to length of hair and detangle.

4. Try using all natural products in your hair, stay away from beeswax and glycerin. Use all natural organic if you can swing it and raw butters and oils. Use aloe gels, flax seed gels, also MM makes a few styling products that are top of the line. I love MM agave mist styling spritz for my flexi rod sets.

5. Rinse mud from the hair with warm (as hot as you can take it) water, and then rinse your hair with cold water.

6. Do an apple cider vinegar rinse every 3 months, this provides shine, bounce and remove build up for your hair. I like steeping herbs with my vinegar for extra nutrition to feed my scalp and hair. I apply this to my scalp massage in and then apply to the hair and let sit for 5 min and rinse, and then apply mud.

7. If you have damage hair and you know it get a trim, take a little off at a time until you are bubble and split end free. You will get to the point of hair so healthy you won't need to get trims as often or at all.


  1. I've seen this product on so many blogs and YouTube channels. I'm curious: Since you're crafty like me, what do you like about this product that you feel you cannot make yourself?

    1. I've tried trust me I've tried remaking this mud wash many times, it has more slip and the texture is smooth, it stays liquid to the last drop of product in the bottle. It’s easy to take a bottle and go wash my hair (that is a task within it self) than to mix up a new batch on wash days, sometimes simplicity is just so easy.
