Just a word of caution for all african black soap: you might want to read about the high pH of african black soap and how its alkaline nature affects the acid mantle of the skin.

I was using Alaffia's Liquid African Black Soap (both unscented and the vanilla almond) for almost a year as a body wash, with normal results. I've been lucky to not suffer from body acne or really …

I really like this soap. I use it as an all in one. I use it to wash my hair. Much better than straight castile soap. My hair is color treated, fine and medium to thick density. My scalp is happy and my hair is silky. I have not noticed color stripping but I do not wash my hair everyday. I use this to wash my face. I would say I am on the dry side with no skin issues as to breakouts and such …Read more

I’ve just finished a 32 oz bottle of the unscented lotion. Meh. I love that it is truly unscented and doesn’t compete with whatever fragrance I use. I live in a high-humidity area and I still don’t feel this truly moisturizes or sinks in. I suppose it is a good basic lotion but there are far better basic lotions in the “natural” market. I was ready for this bottle to be done and will not …Read more

I bought this due to the word "Hydrating" but it is so drying!!!

I really wanted to deep cleanse my scalp as the Jason's one is too soft on my hair and doesn't deep cleanse my scalp. i bought this and even though it is said for "normal to dry hair"; it is DRYING....

I will use this once a week to deep cleanse my scalp and that's about it …

EDIT: I think this conditioner is really good! My hair is bouncy and feels soft but not limp. I've now only used the regular amount (as if I'm using dirty conditioner) and it still conditions. However I think this conditioner will not work for people with extremely dry hair as it does not have enough softening capabilities. I think this is only good for people with normal hair. Not even …Read more

Using it as a full body, hair and face wash. My hair turned out so soft that i didn't need conditioner. You won't get much lather but it cleanse really well without drying skin out. I love it that its natural, fair trade and environmentally responsible. This may become my staple soon.

This is a gentle, low-foaming sulfate-free and silicone-free shampoo with neem, tea tree, rosemary, and tumeric. When I shampoo every other day or every two days, I first put oil on the ends and gently massage the oil in my scalp, like pumpkin seed oil to pre-poo. I leave the oil on my ends for about an hour. Then, I wet my hair with a spray bottle. I take a quarter size amount of this very …Read more

got this primarily to use as shaving soap since I prefer those over gels. it left my legs super soft without clogging my razor or causing any irritation. I used this as a face wash because, why not? It left my face feeling super soft yet oh so clean. works well with a loofah on a stick to clean my back as well which is something I realized I needed (I had been previously using a bar of soap by …Read more
