Although the curly, kinky shape of our natural black hair makes for some of the most beautiful and diverse locks, we all know that natural black hair tends suffer from chronic dryness. That's because whether your hair strands are wavy, curly, kinky, S-shaped or Z-shaped, all those curves hinder our scalp's natural oils from reaching the ends of our hair.
One of the most common uses of black soap is to cure skin conditions and problems such as eliminating blemishes, evening out dark spots, skin rashes, removing body odors, eczema, thinning fine lines and razor bumps.
Scanning the shelves of your local department or drug store can be equally frustrating for the exact opposite reason—there aren’t enough products made for you. The foundations and concealers are too light, the lipsticks are too bright, the shampoos are full of sulfates and the skin creams leave you dry.
