By scrapping the scalp with black soap, you create a healthy environment that allows vitamins, iron oxides, and essential oils to penetrate the hair shaft. African black soap also promotes rapid hair growth by increasing blood circulation of the scalp.
African Black Soap can help make hair grow faster and become thicker. It can also help reduce hair loss from those suffering from this condition.
African black soap is made from the dry skin of locally harvested cocoa pods, cassava, shea tree bark, palm tree leaves, plantains, and other vegetation.
It is entirely loaded with antioxidants and minerals like potassium and magnesium. It also contains vitamins A and E. This high nutrient content makes it far superior to other soaps.
Other cleansers have lab-produced bases, like phosphorous, iron, magnesium, silicon, aluminum, and manganese oxides, along with unburnt carbon and hydrogen peroxide.
Real African black soap is all-natural and, just like shea butter, harvested by local women in Ghana and neighboring African countries. It feeds nourishment to the scalp, instead of stripping the nutrients away.
Plus, it’s less harmful for your body because you’re not absorbing and inhaling toxic substances.

How to use for the face:
If it's your first time using African Black soap, you might want to start using it only every second day so it won't dry your skin too much (read the disclaimer above). After you built up your tolerance after 3 weeks, you can increase frequency to 1-2 x daily.
Lather the bar in your hands, and then apply with circular motions onto your face, rinse with water. Then follow with toner, a hydrating serum and hydrating moisturizer.
Tip: If you're looking to brighten dark spots (hyper-pigmentation) or fade acne scars, use this together with a vitamin c serum, luminate day cream and sepilight night gel
Disclaimer: within the first 1-3 weeks, the soap can cause a tingling sensation and really dry out your face. But don't worry, this is normal. Your skin is undergoing a transformation process, as the soap sucks out all the dirt & excess oils from your skin. After 3 weeks, your skin will be transformed and back to normal.
