oh gawd it doesn't look THAT bad!!! lol mine looks like a little oatmeal cake. it smells like bubbles too! well to my nose at least. i like the scent of black soap when it lathers.
Hmmm, not sure what kind of African Soap you have but mine looks like someone's vomit after entering a "how much oatmeal, raisins, and flour can you eat" contest. And after it gets wet, it looks I took some of my cats "gifts" he leaves in the kitty litter box and greased it with vasaline. Mine doesn't have a smell, though. And that's where I count myself lucky cause it's just best for something that looks like this to remain unscented.

Holy Grails: Amla and Bhringraj are the TRUTH, HE LTR Conditioner is the BIDNESS, Shea butter, Honey, Jamican Black Castor Oil
I use African Black Soap for my hair and for my skin. Black Soaps are dfferent depending of their origins. the one i use is made from vegetal ashes and essentially plantain's. I dilute it in hot water, add a lil bit of coconut oil and shake (my mum adds shea butter to hers but i prefer coconut oil). It leaves my hair soft and clean and my skin shiny. It is 100% natural and less expensive that shampoos that sometimes leave my hair dry.
My friend was telling me today how much she likes black soap to wash her hair and I told her I don't. After reading this I realize maybe I didn't have real deal because I bought that Nubian Heritage stuff that was black.
