If organic hair products are your thing, here is a quick and easy recipe for my Black African Soap Moisturizing DIY Shampoo. This is without a doubt the most moisturizing shampoo I’ve ever used. If you’ve ever wanted to make your own afro hair products, wavy hair products, natural curly hair products, kinky hair products, however you describe your hair, this is a great first step. Hell, even if you have straight hair, and you want a shampoo that is a natural hair moisturizer, this is for you.
I’ve gone through a lot of good products for curly hair. In fact, I’ve tried what some consider the best shampoo for curly hair, or the best for black hair care, and while they were good, my hair never felt as moisturized after shampooing, as it does now.
I can confidently say, I’ll never go back to store bought shampoo. I get to make a product to fit the specific needs of my natural black hair.
You can swap out the oils that work best for your hair. That is the beauty of this recipe. It is completely customizable. Enjoy!!
