DIY Clay Wash Measurements – These can always be altered based up your personal preferences. I purchased an applicator bottle that has the measurements on the bottle as well. These measurements will give you about a 5 oz. DIY Clay Wash supply which is perfect for me since I shampoo cleanse only once a month! I used a little less than 1 oz. for one wash and my scalp has never been so clean & moisturized ever!

  2. Aloe Vera Juice –  4 oz.
