Product Review: Dudu-Osun Black Soap

Growing up in Nigeria, I used to use this on my skin, but I never really heard of people using it as a shampoo till I came to the US.
So many people, especially naturalistas swear by this soap, so I was so thirsty to try it out. My brother recently took a trip to Nigeria, and I had him get me some and I gave it a try. Sadly I wish I could swear by it also, but I can't. It dried out my hair big time! My hair hasn't felt this dry in a while from just being washed, so I have to resort to using it on my skin, which isn't bad, but I just really wish it made my hair feel good like I wanted it to.

  • All natural ingredients
  • Smells good
  • Foams well
  • Dried out my hair
  • Melts away easily if left on a wet surface


  1. Great review i was meaning to try this but i was scared too well thanks for the information :-) my hair is dry as it is lol


  2. I used Shea Moisture African Black Soap. I believe it's a great cleanser and if you have horrible dry, itchy scalp or eczema or psoriasis, it helps to remove the muck & calm the scalp. Cleansers do strip the hair as shampoos with SLS do but the thing is Black Soap is natural as you mentioned. The conditioner I use (same line) is awesome cuz it restores the moisture. Again, if you have itchy, dry scalp you should definitely try. :)

  11. I bought some of this soap from my local market. I love the smell and it worked well as a soap. Never thought of using it on my hair. Thanks for reviewing.
