Bamboo Activated charcoal has been cited recently as featuring all kinds of benefits for human health, like teeth whitening, acne remediation, and kidney health promotion. It seems to be the latest end-all be-all treatment for a variety of health concerns and is touted as one of the best and most potent natural treatments in the world for a variety of issues. As more and more people try Bamboo activated charcoal for the first time, more and more questions are raised about it. The latest one of these questions is whether it can have any positive uses for human hair. While studies are still being performed on the usefulness of activated charcoal for hair, anecdotal evidence suggests that it does indeed have a positive effect on hair cleanliness and hair growth.

Bamboo Activated charcoal is effectively an absorption agent; when in activated form, its pores become large, allowing it to draw in toxins and dirt effectively. This is why it is often used for gastrointestinal issues; when consumed, it can absorb toxins in the gut and dispose of them. In the same way, Bamboo activated charcoal’s porous structure makes it great for cleaning your hair of extraneous dirt and oils. While it may not look or feel especially glamorous to rub black powder all over your hair and scalp, it can indeed be helpful and hygienic to do so. Many people feel that it is an effective form of dry shampoo in that it is much more natural and useful than the kinds of dry shampoos you can buy in stores.

Through Bamboo activated charcoal’s scalp cleaning abilities, another benefit is also introduced: faster hair growth. One of the main reasons that hair growth can often become stagnant is because of clogged pores and follicles on the scalp. By applying Bamboo activated charcoal to the scalp, you can effectively unclog these follicles and pores and allow your hair growth to resume in a natural way. No more prescription products or chemical supplements are necessary; a simple application of Bamboo activated charcoal can allow for hair growth to resume quickly.

Aside from basic hygiene for the scalp and improving hair growth, Bamboo activated charcoal also features several medical benefits. As an example, it can be used as a treatment to deal with scalp infections, scalp acne, and dandruff. While it may not be powerful enough to cure a scalp infection all on its own, Bamboo activated charcoal can certainly speed up the healing process.

Because of its powdered form, activated charcoal can be combined with other basic ingredients to form either a scalp scrub or a shampoo. To make an effective scalp scrub, mix two tablespoons of activated charcoal with just enough coconut oil to turn it into a paste-like mixture. Apply the paste to your scalp and massage gently. After leaving it applied for a few minutes, rinse and wash thoroughly. Creating a shampoo is just as easy, if not easier. One way to make Bamboo Activated charcoal shampoo is to simply add a small amount to your regular shampoo. However, if you want to make it separately, all you have to do is mix 2-4 tablespoons of it with two cups of liquid castile soap and three tablespoons of salt. Once it has been mixed together thoroughly and no clumps are present, you can begin to use it just like you would use any other shampoo.

Bamboo Activated charcoal is one of the most powerful natural remedies in the world for a variety of ailments. Clearly, it is just as useful for hair and scalp hygiene and health.


 Rids your hair of toxins

A shampoo with  Bamboo activated charcoal can gently detox by attracting dirt and oil which is then washed away. And because it’s gentle, it won’t disrupt your hair’s natural moisture levels. You can get yours at

 Adds volume to your hair

If you’re carrying around enough dirt and oil, your hair will start to sag and regular shampooing may not be getting it all out. In fact, hair can gain roughly 4 percent of its own weight in build-up from scalp oils, pollution and dry shampoo. Regular shampoos remove surface dirt, but Bamboo activated charcoal will pull out even more. The other difference, and this is big, is that Bamboo activated charcoal isn’t going to leave the residue some shampoos do, so your hair will feel lighter and have more volume.

 Remedy scalp conditions

Dandruff, redness, oily and itchy scalps may be relieved with activated charcoal. You can use it as a scalp treatment before you shampoo or can be mixed in with your shampoo. The Bamboo activated charcoal will work on your scalp the way it does on your skin and hair: pulling out toxins and purifying. It’s unclear how deep into the hair follicle is being cleaned, but the results should be noticeable.

With all  that is said and done, we call upon hair enthusiasts, spas and shampoo creators to come on board and try this new organic ingredient for hair in their products. We are open for partnerships.
