Alata Samina (Africa Black Soap)

-->
 Debbie asks... In hair care, what do you use alata samina for?

Alata Samina is derived from the combination of two words: "Alata" which is a reference to mainly the people of  the Hausa tribe and "Samina" from the Twi language meaning soap. Other names for this soap include: African black soap, Black soap, and Anago soap.

Ghana's Alata soap is the best quality black soap because it is the ORIGINAL. Are we not blessed to have this in abundance? It is one of the cheapest product you can get from any market in Ghana!
 For Hair
Aalata Samina is used as a natural shampoo. This soap was what our great, great grandmothers used before the advent of the shampoos we know.
It's the only soap in the world that does not require lye but lathers more than any other soap without the cancer-causing laurel sulphate.
Liquid Black Soap
I soak the soap in water and leave it for hours to melt into a liquid state which makes it easy to use.
