The Difference Between Regular Charcoal and Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal may sound like just another fancy name for regular charcoal.

But there's an actual difference between the two! This difference is what makes it so popular among the beauty community. 

Activated charcoal is heated at high temperatures in the presence of certain gases to ‘activate‘ the charcoal which makes it highly porous compared to regular charcoal. 

Why Use Activated Charcoal for Hair: The Benefits

There are claims that a single spoon of activated charcoal contains more surface area than a whole football field.

Activated charcoal is incredibly absorbent. It works by effectively trapping toxins and chemicals and since it isn’t absorbed by your body, it can easily be washed away.

This makes activated charcoal a great way of detoxing & cleansing your scalp!

Other Benefits

Activated charcoal’s highly absorbent nature makes it an excellent aid for various medical applications like in cases of poisoning and assisting kidney function as it is great for filtering toxins.

It is also widely used for water filtration & teeth whitening.
