My neighbors are from Ghana and will give us some products from time to time.  A week or two ago, they gave me about 2-3 pounds of raw black soap from Ghana.  I can't complain about that!  right now I use a liquid version of black soap to wash my hair, face and beard.

here's an amazon link just to show you what the product looks like: http://www.amazon.com/African-Black-Soap...B0053L2E1O

I'll post of some photos of the product they gave me in the next day or so.  it looks exactly like the photos in the amazon link.

It looks like meatloaf gone bad. How does it smell? And, how well does it perform? Thanks.

I need to stop visiting this site...I just ordered some African raw black soap to try. Thanks Andrew!

Cheers,
Jim

when I sent a photo to my wife after my neighbor gave it to me, she thought it was meatloaf.  admittingly, I do agree that it looks like meatloaf as well.  

I'll give it a sniff test tonight and take a few photos to give you my impressions on it.  I haven't used it yet to have any feedback on it's performance at this point.

I have been using liquid African black soap from Alaffia for the past year or so on my hair and it's worked quite well.  if I'm not careful about the product I use on my hair, I can get pretty bad dandruff.  on my face, the black soap can be somewhat drying at times, so just keep that in mind if your face starts to feel more dry after using it.  I think this is the exact soap I use: http://www.alaffia.com/store/pc/Authenti...39p208.htm

I'll check my local Sprouts as they apparently carry Alaffia products. Thanks, Andrew!

if you have a local whole foods, you should be able to find it there as well.

I tried the meatloaf-y kind, but prefer the Dudu Osun black soap. Five bars for $13 from Amazon Prime.
