Black Soap As A Shampoo Replacement For Natural Hair


Black soap is usually referred to as African black soap, but the most common name is black soap. Black soap is used by many to bath, wash their hair, and other such uses, however, using raw black soap, which is what many people use, is quite tricky. In addition to that, there are lots of fake black soaps in the market. Yup, it’s true. Using black soap on your natural hair the wrong way may result in you experiencing harsh side effects. 

When you use black soap the right way, in the right combination, you come out winning. Black soap is absolutely incredible and contains loads of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals.

Some of the nutrients contained in black soap are:

  • Vitamins A and E

  • Potassium

  • Magnesium

With such a high concentration of nutrients, black soaps are considered as far more superior to other soap types. African black soap is made from the dry skin of shea tree bark, cassava, cocoa pods, palm tree leaves, plantains, etc. 

African black soap is natural, just like shea butter, and feeds nutrients and nourishment to the scalp and hair follicles. Unlike other soaps that strip nutrients away from the scalp. Black soap is also less harmful to the body because it does not contain toxic substances that your scalp absorbs or you inhale.

The African Naturalistas Black Soap comes in several forms: the raw unrefined black soap and the black soap with the finest blends of essential oils. The African Naturalistas Black Soap is extremely gentle and helps get rid of scars, acne, skin irritations, and other such problems. It gives your skin an even tone to your natural skin color and exfoliates it.

But for the purpose of this article, here are some of the benefits of using African black soap on your natural hair:

  • Feeds Nutrients To The Scalp
    The African Naturalistas Black Soap is full of all the necessary nutrients to help your hair grow thick and long.

  • Softens Hair
