I was introduced to African black soap about 8 months ago, honestly I was very sceptical because of the way it looks, so I decided to try it on my body first just to see how my skin reacts to it. After the first use my skin felt really soft I didn’t even have to moisturise, I was really impressed then I started using it on my face and hair.
I use organic handmade African black soap it is made using plants like cocoa pods, plantains, shea tree bark or palm tree leaves, coconut oil, palm kernel oil and indigenous herbs, although it’s called African black soap is brown in colour and has an earthy scent

I cleanse my face every morning and evening using the African Black soap, followed by a moisturiser
I wet my face with lukewarm water, then rub the soap directly on my clean hands then use my hands to apply the soap on my face, I massage the soap in circular motions for 30 seconds, then rinse off using lukewarm water.
In the shower
I wet a washcloth, sponge or loofah then rub the African black soap a few time, when it lathers up I scrub my body, and sometimes I rub the soap directly to my skin for that exfoliating effect. You can try whatever method that works for you.

This soap has been really brilliant for my hair, it helps remove product build up, detangles and softens my hair.
It’s a really gentle way to cleanse my hair all the amazing natural ingredients.
I wash my hair once a week and my washday routine is really simple
I first dampen my hair using aloe vera water mixture, alternatively water, then I detangle using my fingers or wide tooth comb.
Then I apply the African black soap directly to my scalp and hair massaging in circular motions, making sure I cover the whole head.
I usually cover my head with a shower cap for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off, this gives time for the African black soap to cleanse, detox and nourish my hair and scalp.
I’m really enjoying the African black soap and I swear by it. Try it and let me know what you think.
