5 Reasons To Use African Black Soap Instead Of Shampoo

I’m on a mission to find my top 5 shampoos and I think I’ve stumbled upon number 1; African black soap. I really should have thought of this sooner, but I always forget to take the obvious path when it comes to hair care. Black soap is great for my skin and it’s even better for my hair. Here are 5 reasons why.


This organic African black soap is sold by Incredible By Nature. It doubles as a shampoo and body wash with all-natural ingredients like:

Water, Palm Oil, Cocoa Pod, Palm Kernel Oil, Coconut Oil, Unrefined Shea Butter, Plantain Skin Ash, Purified Water, Natural Vitamin E, and Natural Sodium.

I typically look at the first 5 ingredients to tell me what the product is mostly made of. Unlike most shampoos with sulfates, African black soap does not rob our kinks of the oils that we need. It actually uses oils to help clarify and soften our natural hair. #Winning

Naturally, if you can’t access this product, you can make black soap shampoo from the bar because the bar is very soft and can easily dilute in warm water.
