Lhore, I get my ABS on the ground at the beauty supply store of Fairway. I know ur a city girl so I just wanted to chime in. I've bought it off the street from the vendors but I started to wonder if Nubian Heritage was profiting from that so now I usually get it from Fairway. I did it a whoke bunch from some BSS before that though.I must say that I will continue to use Ghanian black soap as my shampoo. My hair felt WONDERFUL... not stripped or crunchy, but squeaky clean and moisturized (?). Never felt any moisturization (new word) from a shampoo before, but man I am quite happy with the results. I purchased my chunk from B-n-B as well, even though I can get it from the ground. But I've had bad experiences when purchasing black soap from the African shops in the city... so B-n-B will be where I purchase. I bought the 30lb (? can't remember, but it's the largest portion she offers) and I am pleased with the quality I received. I love what it does for the skin too.
