Pretty much every natural hair blogger out there (eg. Naptural85, CurlyNikki) has talked about how Bentonite clays get rid of lint and product buildup. However, I also see other bloggers using the same clays as a hair conditioner. There's a lot of bad science and conflicting beliefs in the community, so I'm wondering if anyone can help me get my facts straight. Thanks!

    Welcome to Skeptics!. Please include some links to the articles in which the claims and counter-claims are made, preferably with a quote from them to prevent link-rot. Also, are the two/three claims contradictory? Could bentonite be a clarifier AND remove lint/product build-up AND act as a conditioner? – Oddthinking May 25 '13 at 3:14
