home-made all over body shampoo. It's very easy to make.

Take a BIGISH chunk of authentic black soap( the crumbly brown kind from Ghana).
 
Put it in some water ,like 1/2 to 1pt,preferably bottled/filtered.

Let it sit for a while, stirring ocassionaly until thoroughly dissolved.

Add 1tsp coconut oil(optional)

Add 5 drops lavender eo

..and 10 drops tea tree eo.

Mix it well. Don't agigtate it too much else it'll get very foamy.

^hehehehe
 
 
Update: Used recipe last night for the black soap shampoo and it lathers up very much, not drying since the oils and eo's added to the mixture helps give it moisture. The glycerin gives it slip as well!

Thanksyou so much !!! I love my black soap shampoo especially the lather.. I thought after a week you can no longer use the shampoo  if you do no use a perservative.

You made sure you broke the bar into tiny pieces? Wait at least 24 hours and occasionally stir.

yup i cut the soap into alot of pieces.... it hasnt really dissolved but maybe thats because the jar is small and this makes A LOT of liquid soap
 
i sifted the chunks from the liquid added olive oil, vit e oil, tea tree oil, castor oil, spearment essential oil and glycrin...
 
i got from the liquid ALONE over 14 ounces.... im sure im gonna get more after i let the remander with more water added sit overnight...

This is awesome, finished making this today and will be using it maybe tomorrow although to day is cowash day, i'll cowash Sunday and do my reg poo and dc tomorrow just cuz i can't wait to try it. I didn't have jojoba oil (can't think of why) was at the nutrition store yesterday and didn't think to grab some but anyway I had everything else so I sub the jojoba for 1tbsp of grapeseed oil and 1 tbsp of sweet almond. smell wonderful Thank You.

Ah. awesome I may use bits and pieces of these recipes to make some liquid black soap for general washing purposes.   I share a bathroom with a guy and somehow I just don't trust having bar soap in there.

My 24 hours is up, I'm gonna run to Whole Foods and grab something to preserve it. I'd like for mine to be an all over wash, hair included

I tried this and I love it. Thank you so much Im_a_Diva
I was thinking about using blck soap as a shampoo since i use it on my body
My hair is so soft and clean.
I omitted the glycerin and rosemary and added honey suckle and a little honey and less water. This time around I'll add them to see if it makes a difference.

In order for the blk soap to dissolve quickly, you have to use really small pieces.

Now i need a conditioner

Oh, man! 

I Googled "how to make black soap shampoo" and this thread came right up!  I don't know why I didn't even bother to use the BHM search function first.  

Thanks!

Nope, black soap is all natural, no sulfates at all.  But surprisingly it does later nicely!

I LOVE songhai black soap.. i didn't like dudu osun or any other i've tried that are full of cocoa or shea butter

the Songhai brand claims to do damn near everything except cure cancer LOL ...and theyre right! My sister used it for acne, I used it cause it leaves this great clean smell on your body (even after I wash my hands with regular soap...weird) and one time I had a patch of eczema on my neck, and it cleared it right up...

But I never thought about using it as a shampoo! Great idea.. I have 10 bars coming to me in the mail, so I will try this.. I'm scared to mix all those oils in with it though because my hair is real fine and doesnt take well to oils (not even coconut Confused ).. but this particular brand of soap , since it doesnt have all of those butters in it can be very drying..

sooo.. if you had to choose maybe one of those oils to mix with the soap.. which one? Lol...I pre-shampooed with wheat germ oil, olive oil, and coconut oil before, maybe I'll try one of those to save money

has anyone ever tried making their own black soap?

i assume it's like making castile soaps, but getting the lye from the wood as it degrades right?
