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.
