African Black Soap is popular for use on the face and body because it is so gentle, effective against acne and helps to get rid of blemishes, but did you know that it can also be used to wash your hair? The ingredients in the soap mean that it is both cleansing and conditioning unlike many commercial shampoos. You can use the soap as it is or make your own shampoo. There are so many ways you could be creative in making your Africa black soap shampoo.
100g of black soap,
2 tbsp of jojoba oil,
1 tbsp of vegetable glycerin,
1 tbsp of honey,
2 tsp of avocado oil,
10 drops of vitamin E oil,
Essential oil of your choice ( lavender essential oil, peppermint essential oil, rosemary essential oil),
1 tbsp of Aloe Vera juice.
Honey makes this mixture even more moisturising as it is great for drawing moisture into the hair. The Aloe Vera Juice in this mixture helps to lower the pH of the soap and leave the hair smoother. Avocado oil contains ceramides that help to alleviate dry hair. The peppermint oil not only makes this mixture smell divine it also leaves the scalp feeling tingly clean. Glycerin not only draws moisture into the hair it also leaves it incredibly soft. Vitamin E Oil smooths and conditions the hair. Jojoba oil is a very light oil which is closest to the hair sebum it also leaves hair supple and smooth. Rosemary essential oil helps to alleviate dry hair conditions.
Get a bowl and cut the black soap into tiny pieces, get your warm water and pour it into the bowl make sure the water get to the same level as the black soap pieces….it depends on how light or thick you want your mixture. Pour in your oils and mix together, cover the bowl and check every 30min to mix again till the black soap dissolve completely. Mix well before you pour it in your shampoo container.
