African Black Soap for Black Hair Routine

While the hair is usually referred to as the crown of the woman, it is important we take care of this crown regularly. Our hair (black hair) is naturally stripped off of oil as its difficult for oil to evenly spread across the hair. Black soap is made from the ash of of roasted plant materials such as plantain skins, cocoa pods and the leaves and bark of palm and shea trees with a combination of different oils such as shea butter, palm and coconut oils.

Black soap has been proven to aid the growth and health of the hair. It can be used as a shampoo which cleans up the scalp and leaves the hair silky, shiny and soft. It is also good for treating fungal infections on the scalp.

Because black soap can be drying sometimes, we add lavender oil and honey to make it more nourishing for the hair which also promotes hair growth and controls dandruff. The honey in the soap also prevents hair breakage and strengthens the hair follicles.

Below is a step by step guide on how to wash your hair with black soap.
1. Wet your hair with some water

2. Apply a little amount of black soap on your palm and apply on the hair, massaging it in all through the hair.

3. Let it sit a while in the hair for about 45-60 minutes. You can cover it in a shower cap while you do other things
4. Rinse out with warm water and ensure your fingers run through the scalp of the hair to rid it off dandruff and dirt.

5. Pat dry with a towel and dryer or leave out for nature to complete what you started.

6. Style as desired and take a selfie tagging us @pigmented_beauty on Instagram 🙂
