African black soap is promoted for being a rich source of Vitamins and Minerals to care for the hair and skin. It’s made from the skin of the plantain.
I actually used a natural black soap shampoo on my hair. I wasn’t very impressed. It was rather thin but did have a pleasant fragrance.
Beyond Black Soap
Black soap is a popular commodity in ethnic communities. Many people use nothing but this soap to cleanse their hair and body without considering that there are other natural soaps that are just as rich – thereby adding some spice and variety to the cleansing experience.
Yes, I did say experience! Getting all cleaned up can be enjoyable and fun with the right products.
Below is a short list of other natural soaps that are rich and nourishing for ethnic skin. In no way is this a complete list of natural soaps. It’s just a sampling of what you can start with to expand your experience (there goes that word again!)
Green Tea & Honey Soap
Goat’s Milk Soap Soap
