All About Terressentials | You Asked, I Answered!

Hey Guys!

I first introduced Terressentials back on October 11, 2010; and wow, it’s been over a year now! I remember at the time, I was in love with a store-bought brand, and was about to add a bunch of them to giveaway baskets. But when I took a second glance at the ingredients, I saw an ingredient that I had previously missed: parabens! I had just read a book on the importance of organic food and products at the time and so my emotions to seeing the parabens were extremely heightened, and I literally SNaPpED, lol! I returned all of my unused bottles and headed over to Whole Foods to find a new staple product. After rummaging through countless products with ingredients that I couldn’t pronounce or understand without doing extensive research first, I gave up and decided to look elsewhere.

I wanted to try something that I knew would be 100% Organic, so I did a search online using the words “USDA Certified Organic Shampoo” and up popped a bunch of organic pet shampoos, organic body products, and shampoos claiming to be organic. There was only one company at that time that sold hair cleansers with a visible USDA Certified Organic Seal, and that company was Terressentials.

I was a little uncertain about the brown, muddy wash that claimed to “clean” my hair, but I was so tired from searching through stores, that I decided I would just go-ahead and try something new. When I tried it, I was in SHOCK, utter shock! Up until then, it was a looong, arduous process to separate, de-tangle, cleanse, and re-condition my hair, a process that sometimes took 3 to 4 hours! (… and that was when my hair was about half as long as it is now!) This one product managed to do all of the above in 1 hour! I was soo happy and so excited to have found this product, and I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys, my Youtube family!

So anyway, I finally got around to sharing my exciting news of this “miracle product” (and yea, you can tell in the video how excited I was, LOL…hard to watch sometimes…) And I am so happy to see how easy it has made all of your lives as well, when it comes to hair care.

So I promised on my Facebook and Twitter that I was going to answer your most frequently asked questions pertaining to the Terressentials Hair Wash, so here goes! I just want to add that I am in no way affiliated or profiting off of the referral and sales of Terressentials, (I know some of you have wondered…) I introduced the product purely from my own purchasing, testing, and admiration, and maintain to this day that it’s a great product, as many of you already know! So anyway… on to the questions!

Where do you purchase it from? ~ Precious

They’re headquartered in Maryland, where their flagship stores are and are also available in various small shops around the USA. You can click here to view the full list of stores to see if there is one near you. If there isn’t a store near you, you  can purchase it online from Terressentials.com, which is what I do!

I’ve heard a lot about ‘Detoxing’ the hair in order for the product to give true results. What is the process of ‘Detoxing’ and how do you know if your hair is fully detoxed? ~Ysheena

Most shampoos and conditioners that aren’t natural, contain chemicals such as parabens, plastics, and silicones. These chemicals coat the hair shaft in order to make it look shiny, and feel smooth, especially hair products that “claim” to “fix” dry, damaged, and color treated hair. The products don’t really fix your dry and damaged hair, it just coats it with the plastics and silicones to make it look like it’s been revitalized and repaired. These chemicals latch on to your hair, even after one wash.

Terressentials Hair Wash is made with natural clay, no fillers, no plastics, no silicones… It’s a mild cleanser, which is awesome because it’s gentle on your hair! But in order to clean your hair and actually do its job, it needs to remove those synthetic chemicals from the hair first, which act like an artificial barrier. That’s why the website recommends the detox. It’s a week-long process to remove the chemicals from the hair once and for all.

I did not do the detox at all. I didn’t think it was necessary and I didn’t want to waste my product. If you already use natural hair products, you do not need to do the detox. Your hair doesn’t contain any synthetic chemicals, so there is nothing to remove. Actually, if you do the detox and you have no synthetic chemicals to remove, you could risk drying out your hair…

If you do use synthetic products and partake in the detox, there won’t be any sign or signal that you have achieved “Detoxation” lol… you can just assume after 7 days that your hair is good to go.

Do you think it is worth buying organic hair wash at $10.75 for 8 oz. ? ~ Camille

How often do you wash your hair with the Terressentials and how long does the 8 oz. bottle last? ~ Tracie

I wash my hair once a month with the Terressentials Hair Wash. I don’t buy the 8 oz. bottle due to shipping costs. When I purchase it online, I try to buy at least two of the 16 oz. bottles in order to make the shipping worth it.

One 16 oz. bottle can last me 4 months! So with one shipment of two 16 oz. bottles, I only have to pay for shipping about once every 7 to 8 months; I think that’s worth it!

Hi Whitney! After you’ve done your initial detox, how often should you use the mud wash thereafter? ~ Rasheda

Hey Rasheda! Just to reiterate, the detox is not a requirement, just a suggestion for those who use a lot of synthetic products. I personally don’t think it’s necessary for someone already using natural products. But on the regular, you can use this product as often as you like! It’s really up to your discretion! At one point, I remember using it every single day for about a week and a half! It worked out fine, but my hair did get a little dry, so you might want to keep it to a maximum of 4 times a week if you must wash your hair often. Otherwise, you can really use it however you feel!

Personally, I use it once a month. My hair likes the oils, it’s convenient because I don’t have to spend time washing, and I save a LOT of money!

Have you tried the bentonite clay for cleansing your hair? In reading the reviews it seems like the clay is a little more drying to the hair than the Terressentials? ~ Dawn

I haven’t yet tried pure bentonite clay. Before I first purchased the Terressentials Hair Wash, I knew faintly of the different types of clay and mineral treatments, but never gave them a try because I heard what you mix it with determines whether it is moisturizing or drying to the hair, and didn’t want to be bothered.

For now, I enjoy Terressentials because I know it’ll always be perfectly mixed for me. But I do want to mix my own treatments eventually, because well… I like mixing things… lol, but just haven’t had the time yet.

If you want to mix your own, definitely try and get that ratio of ingredients perfect to avoid any drying of the hair.

I just purchased the lemon and I want to have a clearer understanding on the method of application and the length of detox. ~ Carolyn

You can apply the mud wash the same exact way you apply your shampoo! It’s essentially your shampoo and conditioner in one, so just slap it on however you want!

You can literally apply it however you please, and however you apply your normal shampoos. Here’s a video on how I apply it:

Will the Terressentials work on color-rinsed hair? Or will it strip the color? ~ Kimberly

The mud wash doesn’t strip the color of your hair, however, if there is any damage caused by the rinsing treatment, it will be exposed due to the fact that there aren’t any fillers or silicones to coat the hair. 

I noticed in one of your videos you commented that Lemon didn’t work for you – What results did you see with Lemon/why didn’t it work? How can I recognize if I am not getting good results? ~ Jaycee

Yea, my favorite is the Lavender! When I bought Terressentials for the first time, before introducing the product, I purchased Lavender and Lemon, because the website said they were the best for our hair type. I instantly fell in love with the lavender, but my feelings for the lemon were less than exciting. My hair felt extremely dry and straw-like. I will mention that I had been using the Terressentials non-stop for about a week and a half at that point, and I was over a friend’s house, using their water when I first tried it, so those two factors definitely could have added to my poor results.

However, since then, many individuals have had great results trying the lemon hair wash, so give it a try! I stick with lavender though just because it works well for me!

Did it make a big difference in your hair quality? What were your concerns before you started using it? ~ Brittney

After using it, my hair feels softer and more moisturized! My only concern before I started using it was if my hair was going to be clean.. and it was!


Do you use conditioner afterwards? My hair is super dry. Will it moisturize my hair that much where I don’t need to use conditioner? ~ Hermione

No need for conditioner afterwards! Conditioner is necessary when you’re cleaning your hair with shampoo, because the shampoo, like a detergent, strips the oils out of your hair.

Conditioner was created to return moisture back into your hair after it’s been striped. The Terressentials Mud Wash isn’t a shampoo. It’s an extremely moisturizing and gentle emulsifying cleanser. It gently lifts the dirt out of your hair, leaving your natural oils, so no conditioner is necessary. The hair already feels supple and moist when it’s rinsed out.

Usually when I’m out of the shower, I’ll style my hair by re-combing it out and applying shea butter to help seal in that moisture… and that’s all I need!

I was wondering can you use it on children’s hair? ~ Tiffany

Yup! It’s extremely gentle and can be used on people of any age! Of course, making sure they aren’t allergic to any of the ingredients!

I have a 9 year old that I am transitioning and I wanted to know if the Terressentials would be good for her? She still has a lot of relaxer in her hair. ~ Deborah

Well, again, the age doesn’t matter, but the state of the hair does. So if your hair isn’t 100% natural, meaning it’s been chemically altered, treated, or colored, you might not want to use the product because it will show all the damage in your hair. There aren’t any chemicals to coat the hair, to make it look healthy and shiny, so once the mud wash cleanses your hair, what you see is what you get.

I don’t recommend this product to anyone who’s undergone any type of chemical treatment. I don’t think you will like the results. As soon as the hair is “un-altered” and “un-treated”, however, go for it!

So is the Terressentials the only shampoo you use or do you use other organic shampoo when you are doing a quick wash? ~ Sharon

Currently, Terressentials in the only hair cleanser I use. Because I found my staple hair cleanser, I really don’t need to look elsewhere! But if I find something that looks interesting, I might try it out of sheer curiosity, not necessity.

How often do you wash, co wash and condition? ~ Jacquie

I wash my hair once a month! There’s no co-washing since I don’t use conditioner. In between my once-per-month washing, I’ll deep condition using either my Mayo Deep Conditioner or my Greek Yogurt Deep Conditioner, depending on what I have in my refrigerator. Or I’ll just rinse with water!

Woo! That was a doozy! If you have any additional questions that I did not answer, please leave them in the comments below! If there are a lot of additional questions, I might do a Part 2.

I really hope this helps to give you a better idea of how I use the hair wash and what it’s all about. Of course, if you want to learn more, you can check out the Terressentials Fact Page! Talk to you all later!

XoXo Whit

Reader Comments

My hair is currently suffering high porosity, and I want to bring some protein into it. Do you think that Terressentials will help in some way, if I also use protein deep conditioners and seal moisture in with shea butter?

Thanks for this article and your review of Terressentials. I started with the lemon and got the same poor results but switched to the Lavender and now I'm in love! The only other cleanser I use is the Ayurvedic Shampoo Bar by Natural By Design Cosmetics and that's to wash henna out of my hair. Terressentials is an amazing product!

Okay. You mention how it cleans the hair. How about the scalp? Especially if you suffer from dry scalp or dandruff. How do you clean your scalp from the shea butter, dirt, and all?

Hey Whitney,

I just ordered some product from Terresentials and am excited to try it out! I do hope I have the same raving results that so many have spoken about. Thanks for all your answers and your recommendations.

After washing with Terressentials, can I use eco styler gel to define my curls and Shea Moisture curl enhancing smoothie?

I'm on the terressential website right now!! Gotta get this product. Thank you for answering so many of our questions and being someone we can trust to come and watch and receive honest information. πŸ™‚

Do you find that the mud wash has thickened up your hair or that massaging it in has made your hair fuller?

Hi there! Thank you so much for this. I am wondering if you have ever done a video on shedded hair, and how you handle it? I wonder often if I have too much shed hair.

what exactly is your hair care routine? i want to know everything from A-Z… lol i jus dont get what order to do things =(

Hi Whit,
I did buy the Terressentials-
Lavendar wash and I have only used it once πŸ™ (but I did like it) then I switched back to Shea Moisture (I do like it too). Tell me if you think their products are Organic and will I need to do the full detox when I start back using Terressential-Lavendar?
Thanks in Advance

I have been following your videos for months now and I've been going back and forth on whether I should purchase the mud wash. I finally decided to buy it and I do not regret the decision at all! My package arrived in the mail yesterday and I just washed my hair – it feels so soft! I can't stop touching it πŸ™‚

Hi Whitney,
Thanks for the responding to the many questions regarding terresentials. I have a question I hope you can answer. I would like to wash my hair once a month as well, but can't; because I have dry scalp. No matter what I do to moisturize my hair/scalp, my scalp gets flaky and itchy within a week. I was wondering, does terresentials moisturize the scalp; where I would not have to wash my hair so often. Thanks!

Hi Whitney,
Thank you…Your posting was very helpful. I purchased the Lavendar Terressentials Mud Wash in April 2011. Unfortunately, I have not used it. I've been trying to use up what I have. Right now, I have twists in my hair and plan to take them out in December and begin the mud wash. Does the mud wash have an expiration date? I couldn't find one on my bottle. Do you suggest that I buy a new bottle?

Hi Whitney,

I would like to share a story for people with dry scalp. I too suffer from "dry scalp" and after doing some research I have found that it's actually the scalp overproducing oils which then create a hard layer that look like scabs (eew). It's called Seborrheic dermatitis and it sucks. My sister got an anti-fungal shampoo from the doctor that contained ketoconazole and it has been the only thing that has worked for me. She ran out a long time ago and since then my head has been hopeless.

What's frustrating is that I remember a time when I didn't have it. My little sister had dandruff as a child and we would tease her for it. Karma. She has the most beautiful head of hair in the family.

Once, I put tea tree oil all over my scalp because I thought it would help the dryness. Almost my whole scalp created thick layers of crust. I thought I was allergic to tea tree oil but really it's the myth that we learned as kids being broken. We don't need to oil our scalps as it creates it own oils.

But even after all of this I can't solve this pesky problem. Even after only using natural products, and straight after washing, my scalp is unbelievable.

And yet, I remember when I had micro braids this summer my scalp hardly bothered me at all. I didn't wash my hair at all for 2 months straight until it got a little itchy. Then after the wash the itchiness got worse and worse.

My conclusions:

The less washing the better. Whitney washes once a month and her hair is fabulous. This is the same for my sister. She goes forever without washing and her hair loves this. I read that the scalp also doesn't like really hot water.

What I'm going to do in the meantime is get a prescription shampoo containing ketoconazole from the doctor. I think we need some form of sanity to relieve the desperation and exasperation of this pesky problem. When using this medicated shampoo, my scalp was relieved immediately and for at least a couple weeks after.

Once the fungus, which wikipedia says could possibly be yeast overgrowth, is gone. Maybe it would be in our best interest to switch to a shampoo like the one Whitney mentions. It is likely our hair is being stripped of all oils which is causing this fungus to take over our heads. I would love another natural solution besides going to the doctor but I haven't found anything after searching endlessly. But then again, doctors are there for a reason, right?

This was long winded but I feel the pain of people with itchy scalps. Let's figure this out!

This is off topic but with winter coming up I'd like to wear a hat. How do you keep your hair looking good after you take the hat off? My thought is I'll wear the hat to work and take it off when I get there but I don't want my hair to be a hot mess. Any suggestions?

Hi Whitney,

I must say that I absolutely love your videos. You are truly an inspiration. I've been natural for 19 months now and I would really like to take better care of my hair this winter. (Last winter was a COMPLETE set back; lots of dry, brittle and breaking hair) I'm considering the Terressentials Organic wash. My question is: You mentioned how the mud was will expose any damage that has been done to the hair. I've been using natural products; or so I think… (Shea Moisture line), will the Terressentials organic wash help with getting my hair on the right track, and what should I do if the shampoo does expose any damage? Sorry that was two questions. lol. πŸ™‚

Hello, I discovered your YouTube channel recently and just saw your video about this product. I was wondering if you know much about using it on locs. I've locked my hair for just a little over 1.5 years now and my hair type is I believe what people would call 4b? (Whichever has the most coils!) Thanks in advance.

Hi Whitney! I love your videos and blog; You are creative, quirky, fun and very informative! In addition to everyone else asking from your experience, I'd like to know do you continue to use hot oil treatments with a heat cap on your hair? Keep up the excellent work! Thank you πŸ™‚

I've used it for a while now on my hair and for my oldest daughter. The Lemon has worked fine for us and I love the smell!! I use a lot so I order the 16oz. I also like to let it sit for a while and then rinse it out. Our hair melts and the detangling, O M G!! Love this product. Even if something else comes along I think I’m hooked!

My issue is the same as Kristina's.
However I do not have a prescription shampoo….I don't want to go back to anything else but my scalp is producing waaaaay too much oil πŸ™ I have been using baking soda mixed with a little acv and lime juice….I know kinda strong, But the excess oil traps the mud wash in my hair causing it to look ashy at the roots. I had tried to use diluted acv but the build up just laughed at my pitiful attempt to remove it. Any suggestions would be helpful. The other products I use on my hair: Shea/mango butter mix(it has no oils in it). Sometimes instead of the Shea/mango I may use evoo. If I need extra moisture during the week I use Kinky Curly Knot today. For a DC(not every wash) I use honey and bananas and for a spritz I have plain ole water and if my hair's pH is off I use my water&aloe vera juice mix.

Hi witney im transitioning but Im so tempted to cut off the perm because I hate dealing with two different hair textures, i continuously spritz water in my hair and wear a shower cap around the house to keep moisture in because my hair drys out quickly, do u think wearing kinky twist as a protective styling is ok? or wet n wavy? Also me wearing my shower cap all day long then switching to a satin bonnet when i sleep is ok?

Hey Whitney,

I've not too long ago discovered your youtube channel, and i really love your hair styles and tips.
I saw you put up something on detoxing your hair, and i was wondering if i would need it or not. I Live in Holland and the water hair is very bad, so i wash my hair once a month and i use baby shampoo or sometimes head and shoulders. I'm originally from the Caribbean. Back home i washed my hair with the gel from a flat cactus that grows there or sometimes aloe, cause back then the shampoo use to mess up my hair and scalp so my mom suggested the aloe and cactus. Now i forgot my question, OH YEH, um so from that short history do you think i should detox my hair

I'm interested in your monthly routine…. i.e Week 1 – Wash, twist/twist-out; Week 2, deep condition, twist/twist-out, etc. Also, does your shea mixture leave much build-up on your hair in-between washes or does the rinsing between washing help with that?

Hey Whitney!!!

I love your hair! I have question. Does Terressentials ever have a sale??? Free shipping??? Anything???

Let me know

Thanks for the great post. I've been interested in Terressentials ever since I saw you use it in your video. I've been going back and forth with myself about whether I wanted to try it. But I heard all this stuff about detoxing etc etc so it made me wary of trying it. But you answered all of my questions about what to do. Terressentials will definitely be next on my list. I just received a free Aubrey Organics White Camellia shampoo. So I'll have to see how that works. If it doesn't, I'll be ordering some Terressentials sooner rather than later.

I've heard that these clays can cause staining, like in your tub, towels, etc.. Have you had any issue with this when washing out this cleanser?

I've done the BC! πŸ˜‰ yay!…do you think that i should use the Terressentials now or when my hair gets longer?

What do you think about the keratin treatment? My stylist is telling me I should do it, to put back in moisture in my hair, and it would help stop the breakage and splitting ends. My hair is very brittle, and gets dry so quick, my ends. Help! lol

I was wondering if Dr.Bronner's magic soap would be good to use to wash my hair with. It's super natural with no foaming agents etc. I wasn't sure if it would be good for hair even though it's not haircare specific.

Hey Whitney
You have inspired me to show off my natural hair more and I love your videos. I wondered if they ship to the UK and if they do how much would it cost for the shipping?

What is the ph balance of the terresemtials if you know and do you ever do a vinegar rinse or aloe Vera to your hair for ph balance? What do you think or know about ph balance?

Hi! does terressentials give out discount on the hair wash because this is my first time using it and it is expensive (i'm only 14 years old) And i have been using organic products (mostly shea butter) for about two or three months now. but i did use non organic products that had parabeans, and all this bad chemical, but anyway do i have to go through the detox since i am no longer using non organic products or do i have to go through it since i DID use non organic products months ago? and one more question, how do you know if your detox is finish? i mean, how do you know if your scalp is 100% clean? thats all!! and i am a big fan of you and your hair (lol!) PLZ REPLY!! THANK YOU!!

Hello Whitney. I'm A 50 Year young lady from the UK and it's the first time I am posting a question. I am curious to know what your hair regimen is since you only wash your hair once a month and don't use conditioners. Truth be known, I am looking to change my natural hair routine, and tempted to go down your route!!! However, I need to get a few facts clear in my mind so I can get started. How do you get your moisture? Do you continue to wet/soak your hair under the shower and seal with your oil/butter mixture until it's time for your monthly hair-wash with the mud? I'm presuming this is what you do but need confirmation. Also, how do you strenghthen your hair? What I'm really asking is:do you do protein treatments? Thank you in advance for taking time out of your busy schedule if you managed to answer my questions. Stay blessed…

I been natural for 1 yr now I grew out my hair but now I have a lot of shedding and a few pieces that will not curl how do I fix this??

Thanks for posting this.

You'd mentioned that you wash w/ Terressentials once a month and in-between you deep condition (as I saw in your linked video). In that video you shampoo, rinse w/ ACV then deep condition. By the length of your hair in the video, I see that was created not too recently–before Terressentials, maybe? So, is that the routine you follow now? If so, what shampoo do you use (since you don't shampoo w/ anything other than Terressentials once a month?)

Thank you.

If you only wash your hair once a month with the terressentials and a 16 oz bottle last you 4 months? isn't that like 4 oz a month? Seems like a lot… considering the price. Or was that a typo?

HI. My name is Jennifer, same as MNH, I'm sooo new at this, researching on youtube and your amazing videos pop out. I watched some of your videos. I have some questions that i wanted to ask about the terresentials organic. I am willing to buy it and give it a try, but need more information. Is the product found at walgreens or walmart? I wondered if i could use the echo styler gel using the terresentials and have you tried it….If so what is the difference between the echo styler gel and the flax seed gel. I love your videos and learned a lot! There was one about the homemade shea butter of yours and I wanted to know if I could use the regular shea butter or the shea butter curl enhancing smoothie that are selled in the markets?

HI. Forgot to ask… When using the terressentials, Can you use it as a leave in or can you use other conditioners as a leave in, if so could you please name some that you recommend..like tresseme Naturals…VO5, suave? Another question, How long have you been using the terresentials? Also I heard that if you wet your hair everyday it tends to break and just wondered if that ever occured to you? THANK YOU.

Hello πŸ™‚ My name is Tianna. I have a few questions for you, if you don't mind. πŸ™‚
I recently had a hairstylist put a texturizer on my hair (I don't really know what it is called). Now…. before this, one day I just decided to stop putting braids in my hair and my mother introduced me to "braid – outs". I did these braid-outs for about 2 to 3 months and I really liked it — before I started braid-outs I had not had a perm for about a year and a half, so my hair was pretty much just about natural ( I had that poof thing going on lol). Anyways, so I really liked the braid-outs and then I let my sister and mom talk me in to getting a texturizer (I totally regret it). The hairstylist gave me some texturizer moisturizing liquid to keep it up, but it was too darn sticky for me, so I stopped using it and my hair became dry. So I tried to go back to my old ways by doing braid outs to try to transition back to natural. I still can see the texturizer in my hair when I wash it (it does no look like my poof before i got the texturizer). I just want my hair back….. Please come back hair!!!

1. Is Terressentials capable of stripping or getting rid of chemicals used for texturizing hair?
2. If so, how long will it take for the terressentials to get rid of the texturizing chemicals?

Hello Whitney, I had my hair blow dry out 2 weeks ago and when I washed my hair afterwards, I noticed my hair felt like straw!… I'm sure I have heat damage. I know you are "heat free" but do you know any methods to help restore my hair or should I cut it and let it grow unitl all the heat damage is gone?

Help! Thanks πŸ™‚

Hey Whitney, I am 16 years old and have been straightening my hair for 3 years. I did not know about all the different things that could happen but after seeing my hair start to break and split I noticed I had heat damage. After researching different things I've been using I found out that they weren't helping my hair; so i decided to search for all natural products but they all had some kind of chemical I don't want to use in my hair, until I found terressentials. But now I'm not sure, should I cut my hair or just grow it out? Or should I slowly cut each month as my hair grows?
Any comment you have will be greatly appreciated.

Hey Whit:

First of all, I love your videos and your wonderful personallity. I started out watchign the hair videos but you won me over with the DearNaptural…now with baby Olivia..OMG i am so hooked..She is the most precious baby and to see both of your joy to have her is just wonderful! Anyway…i digress…i am trying to figure out your washing routine which you do breakdown…but i had a question does the rinsing the hair with water wash out the shea butter? or do you have build up of butters and oils? Still tring to figure out how to use the oils you mention…i get bits and pieces of what you do as far as washing…but it would be great if you did a video just explaining out you wash, oil, add shea butters and just how all of this goes down on a monthly cycle.
Wishing you the best…Hills

Hi! I have not relaxed my hair in two years, but I colored my hair four months ago. I was wondering since you do not recommend the Terressentials Organic wash for color-treated hair, is there anything else you could recommend I use?

Love your hair! Watched your video on the terressentials hair wash. You didn't mention they have scented mud washes, LOL! Sound exciting! Ordered my first bottle just a few minutes ago! Got the lemon scented mud wash. Can't wait to try.


First I would like to congratulate you and Felipe (sp?) on the birth of your daughter, Olivia. I would like to try your mayo deep conditioner but you mentioned in the video to wash your hair with shampoo-would that be the terressentials? You said to rinse it out with acv. After applying the mayo you said to thoroughly was your hair with regular conditioner-again, are you suggesting using the terressentials? Please advise which shampoos and conditioners when using the mayo d/c. Thank you.

I have tryed to order this online but they don't deliver to 'United Kingdom.' If anyone could help I would be grateful….

Love, Love, Love Terressentials! My 16 oz. lemon frangranced cleanser came in Saturday! After one wash I was in love and don't feel bad that I just recently purchased an order from another company. Why? I saw how excited Whitney was about the product and was glad she shared. I checked it out on the website and saw the different scents of the mud wash…Lemon was a choice! I love lemon scented products!!!

After washing my hair it dried fuller instead of the stringy hard hair. I wondered with it being a mud wash if it was going to be this messy brown stuff all over the shower and what I use to dry my hair with. It rinsed out well and no mess in the bottom of shower. I also found that it dried faster! I always use a t-shirt to dry my hair and I squeeze the water out.

Yesterday I washed my hair twice, once before church and again after my 18 mile run.

I am one who has some natural curl to my hair but would relax my roots to add length. It would get that spongy look, but I think I won't do that anymore!

Hello Whitney can you use Terressentials Mud Wash on Demi or Semi natural colored hair? By the way love love love all the beautiful things that you do and have learned about natural hair. Thank for being honest, informative, and such a blessing to many.

Hey Whitney, I was just wondering because I also deep condition with mayo, and egg, and fun stuff, how often do you and should someone do this process? I currently do it every two weeks…
Thank You !

how can i get my hair to become as long as yours! what kind of product do i need & where can i get it in Nigeria ?

Hi, Whitney! So, I just big chopped on this past Christmas (2012), but I was transitioning since March 2012. Since doing my big chop, I have completely followed your regimen! I only use Terressentials mud wash and the exact Shea butter mixture that you use. I also have flax seeds for gel! I am very well pleased with this routine, however, I am unsure if I can use other products. Can I use the terressentials mud wash and sometimes use some curling smoothie or does that "pollute" my hair?

How long can I keep the Greek yogurt conditioner bf it's bad???!?!?!

Is there a store you can buy terresentials at? So that I don't have to buy it from online or have to go to Maryland.

Hi whit,
I tried your washing method and it was a success until the distribution of oil smh…. I put too much in my hair and now my hair is really Really oily and my trust out turned out horrible. How can i fix this problem? Should i re wash it?

My hair is half straight , Half natural I'm in the Transition zone. Can I apply the mud wash only to my natural roots ? If not what shampoo do you consider to use during this trasition period ,because I'm not planning on doing the big chop.

Hi Whitney! Love your videos and blogs! I'm BCing soon and really want to do my natural hair journey right this time around, so I plan on using terressentials. I plan on coloring my hair in the fall though so can I still use it? And I also know that I have low porosity hair, so I was wondering if it would still be effective….

would this mud wash work when you've had your hair in extensions for about 1 month or so but you wash your hair in between?

Hello there, I was wondering if you have tried the Terressentials Baby wash and baby lotion before? Thank you!!

I used to relax my hair and went to the brazillian blow outs. My last blow out was almost a year ago when I lived in less humid conditions, now I live in Florida and am no longer treating my hair to straighten it. I have a mix of chemically straightened hair and natural hair. I do not want to chop it until the natural hair is longer but it is just looking crazy, how do you control your curl and what can i do to train my hair? I have attempted some of your youtube video and my hair isnt being very cooperative. I just need advice and help =)

Hi, Thanks for sharing this. I have purchased the terressentials minty mud wash and I have found it awesome… Except that I wash,t feeling quite comfortable with the mud staying on my scalp, (I thought it might be still dirty…) so I did a second shampoo with a regular one… And it has been a month now… And I have realized that my hair was becoming so dry. I still don't know why my hair lacks moisture these days though.I think I should stop with the regular shampoo and just enjoy the mud on my scalp. Maybe this might work.

I wnated tk know what can i use to conditioned my hair after I use the wash ? After i wash it i usually oil it with raw shea butter and carrot tea oil.

Hi Whitney, I've been following you on YouTube every day this week lol. This TERRESSENTIALS product sound really interesting but I'm worried about using it, due do me being allergic to clay. What can I use then TERRESSENTIAL?

Now that is it is 2014, do you still use this shampoo? I just watched your 2010 uploaded youtube vid about this product so i went online and was doing a bit of research when I noticed they had very low reviews on Yelp. Not for the product but for their customer service. And that is the reason I ask if you still use this product and would still recommended it
