How to Use African Black Soap to Make DIY Shampoo

Our Ninon African black soap bars are incredibly versatile and can be used as more than traditional bar soap. Not only does this soap help to relieve acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and reduce blemishes, but they can be used to ease scalp conditions and soften your hair by turning them into shampoo!

DIY African Black Soap Shampoo Recipe

Making your own do-it-yourself shampoo out of our African Black soap bar is easier than you might think, here are the easy to follow steps:

Step 1

Cut off one-third of the bar of black soap. Use a knife to shave the bar down or use a cheese grater with wide holes and place the broken down bar pieces into a mason jar. Since this soap is soft it should break apart nicely. Keep in mind that the smaller the shavings are the quicker and easier the soap will dissolve in the following steps. 

Step 2

Next pour one cup of warm water over the soap stirring to allow the soap to dissolve. Once it has dissolved let it cool to room temperature. Depending on the consistency you want of the final product you can add more or less water. 

Step 3

Next, you need to add some moisturizer to ensure the African Black soap shampoo doesn’t dry out your hair. We recommend adding 1.5 tablespoons of jojoba oil, ½ of argan oil, 1 teaspoon of Vitamin E oil. 

If you have very dry hair you can also add a ½ teaspoon of coconut oil

Step 4

Next up is adding in your scents by adding essential oils. You can add 10 drops of a single scent like lavender or mint. Or you can mix scents to create a unique blend. 

Step 5

Once you are satisfied with your consistency and the scent of your shampoo let it sit for at least two hours prior to using. The shampoo will be good for 3 weeks and should be stored in the refrigerator.

African Black Soap has a lot of benefits to enhance the quality of your hair including making it softer and healthier. Some additional benefits include:

Good for Sensitive Scalps

Many people who suffer from sensitive skin find that their scalps are also sensitive to certain soaps or shampoos.  African Black soap is a great choice for those with sensitive scalps since it is gentle and mild on the skin. It can also help alleviate symptoms of eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin. African Black Shampoo will stop the itching and also helps in curing skin irritation.

Boosts Hair Growth

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.

Alleviates Dandruff

Many people suffer from dandruff as traditional shampoos tend to cause build up on the scalp. African Black soap, on the other hand, won’t cause excess build-up and will reduce the symptoms of dandruff.

If you have colored hair, African Black soap shampoo can not only make your hair color last longer, but can boost the colors, and make it look even shinier and healthier.
