Healthy Hair Ingredient | African Black Soap For Healthy Cell Regeneration

I have used ALAFFIA Authentic African Black Soap-Lavender Ylang Ylang, which would do an awesome job with my hair. After using my hair was so clean and felt so strong. It was one of my favorite sulfate-free and lather-free shampoos.

So I thought I would go to the source of the CLEAN...African Black Soap.

What is African black soap?

The traditional African black is made with: plantain skin ashes, cocoa pod leaves/powder, palm leaves, palm oil/palm kernel oil and Shea/cocoa butter.

What are the benefits of African black soap?

  • Treats and alleviates scalp irritation
  • Promotes softness, manageability, and shine
  • Gives healthy regeneration of skin cells
  • Alleviates stretch marks and blemishes/acne
  • Great cleanser to remove make-up and relieving dry skin

How To Use African Black Soap:

I purchase African Black Soap for the purpose of cleansing my face and hair.
Our Earth's Secrets - African Black Soap

For my face, I rinse my face with warm water. Then, I take a piece of the soap and lather in my hands and smooth the lather onto my face. Once completely covered, I leave on for a few minutes (2-5) then I rinse my face with warm water
The soap is very drying to the skin, but you will feel very clean. Be sure to use a natural moisturizer or cream after cleansing with the soap.
After doing my pre-poo treatment, I rinse my hair with warm water. Then, I take a piece of the soap and lather in my hands and smooth the lather into my scalp. I start at my temples and work my way in my hair ONLY cleansing the scalp. Once completely covered, I leave on for a few minutes (2-5) then I rinse my hair with warm water, then move on to deep conditioning my hair.

The soap is not as drying to my hair because of the pre-poo treatment, but it does cleanse my scalp very well.

How do I store African black soap?

Since the soap is soft and dissolves easily, African black soap should not be left in the shower or on your bathroom sink. Store in a dry container or Ziploc bag.

How do I know "this" African black soap is organic/real/the good stuff?

  1. African black soap is soft with no defined shape...Fakes are very hard and smoothed to a shape
  2. African black soap have no preservatives...Fakes absolutely do
  3. African black soap is an off-colored brown...Fakes are artificially black
  4. African black soap smells like "earth" or "dirt"...Fakes have an aromatic fragrance

Where can I purchase?

You may purchase from Amazon or from Our Earth's Secrets.
