About the Shampoo:
Sulfate-free, SLS Free African Black Soap shampoo infused with 26 herbs and oils, including Amla, Rosemary, Stinging Nettles, Horsetail and much more.
The shampoo is the companion to our bestselling HairHealth+ Super Concentrated growth oils. It contains many of the same ingredients known to foster abundant, gorgeous locks.
What is Black Soap?
It is a soap made in africa (imported from Ghana) from shea butter and shea tree ashes, coco butter, plantain leaf and so much more. The ash in this shampoo helps to cleanse hair and scalp – charcoal/ash naturally absorbs impurities. The shampoo is dark brown in color, but rinses clear.
• Sulfate-free & SLS Free
• Contains a plethora of ingredients that promote revitalized hair
• Gentle but effective cleanser: does not contain harsh detergents, so it cleans without stripping or drying out hair
• Helps with dry, itchy and scaly scalp
• Designed to revitalize hair strands
• Contains Shea Butter which leaves a very fine protective coating on the hair shaft that locks in moisture and works to screen hair against environmental stressors, such as pollution and UV rays.
The shampoo is not as thick and gel-like as commercial shampoos, but once in the hair, it can produce tremendous amounts of lather. So you’ll want to start with just a squirt and use more as needed (as opposed to adding a huge amount) to avoid "over-cleansing" the hair. Also, please note that black soap shampoo of any kind (not just ours) should always be followed up with a conditioner for best results, so only shampoo with Black soap when you have time to follow it up with a conditioner.
This shampoo does contain a paraben-free preservative. Why a preservative? Because this product contains water and some herbals, we MUST use a preservative. Without it, this product would likely be growing mold and some bacteria by the time it arrived to customers in the mail. We use the smallest percentage possible of a preservative deemed safe and effective, so that you can enjoy your product longer.

Please use the drop-down list above to make your choice. Please Note: It is NOT meant to be used daily, but 2-3 times a week to strengthen & fortify hair. Because of the concentrated nature of the strengthening ingredients in this shampoo, overuse can result in a coarse feeling on some types of hair (just as overuse of intensive protein treatments can cause this), especially if the shampoo is not followed up with a conditioner.
WARNING: This product not recommended for use on children, animals, or pregnant and breastfeeding women (because affects of herbs-if any- have not been studied in small children). If you are Pregnant/Breastfeeding, please see our other listings for our Black Soap shampoo which contains no herbs.
About the Conditioner:
This hair conditioner contains a powerful blend of 28 herbs and oils that encourage healthy growth, including Amla, Rosemary, Stinging Nettles, Horsetail and much more. It is a secret recipe created and owned by us, so no one else in the world sells this. It also contains BTMS, a naturally derived emulsifier that works to keep hair silky smooth and tangle free. *Note to previous customers- the ingredients have changed. Please see ingredients below for details.*
This is not an everyday use conditioner – you will want to use it once weekly or twice a month as needed while using your regular daily conditioner in the mean time. The reason for this is that it is a highly concentrated fortifying conditioner that contains many components that promote stronger looking hair, such as silica. Overuse of any fortifying treatment – not just this one – can result in a "coarse" feel to your hair, much like when you over treat your had with protein treatments. So a little goes a long way, so there is no need to use a lot. Works on all hair types: Caucasian, African & Asian. It is the companion product to our Hair Health+ African Black Soap Shampoo and our one of a kind HairHealth+ hair oils.
What are the benefits?
It contains 12 botanicals with the purpose of promoting nourishment of the scalp. As long as your hair follicles are not completely dead (as found in some male-pattern baldness/certain types of alopecia, etc.) it may be of help. It also contains botanicals that work to soften and strengthen your hair to prevent breakage, so that you keep more of your length, and it has the added bonus of increasing shine. It contains pure, golden jojoba oil, along with 26 other ingredients such as essential oils and raw botanicals from all over the world (including exotic Indian Amla) that help improve the appearance of your hair.
