Alikay Naturals Moisturizing Black Soap Shampoo
Get clean hair Naturally. Made from Raw Black Soap, this shampoo is great at cleaning the hair without stripping it of its natural oils. It leaves your hair moisturized and soft. It is watery form so no thickening agents have been added. Scent is tropical and fruity. Directions: Apply directly to the scalp and massage in to create lather. It is in a watery form so apply in small amounts at a time. It is concentrated, so not much is needed. Even if shampoo doesn’t lather a lot, it still cleans your hair.
Ingredients: Water, Raw African Black soap, Coconut Oil, Essential Oils, Fragrance, Herbal and Botanical Blend No Petroleum, No Mineral Oil , No Alcohol, No Paraben, No Sulfate, No Silicones
Cost(s) $12, $20
Packaging: I received a 16 oz bottle with clear writing and a lovely Caribbean theme label. My label got wet in the shower and the letters have faded slightly, but they are not smeared and I can still see the writing and read the label
Scent: an island fruity scent
Texture: Very liquid like, watery
Lather/Rinsing: You have to be very careful dispensing this out of the bottle during your wash routine. You can easily use more of the shampoo than needed because its fairly watery in texture. This does not lather, however it cleans the hair and scalp very well without stripping the hair of its natural oils.
I love it and that says a lot because I’m not a big shampoo user. I use a lot of clays and cowashes to cleanse my hair but when I need to try a new product and want to clean my hair to start from fresh I like to bust out a shampoo. This shampoo left my hair pliable and soft. I actually washed twice because I wasn’t sure if my hair still had oil in it from my prepoo. For those of you looking for a product that cleanses like a shampoo, but mimics the moisture and softness of a cowash, I highly recommend this product!Previous Post: Understanding the New FDA Sunscreen Labeling Guidelines
