  1. I have used ACV in my black soap and it totally killed it. Like completely! So I’m with you, I have to use is as a rinse instead as
    well.

  2. Gabrielle, thank you for introducing me to African Black soap, my hair and skin have never look so good.

  3. I was wondering if you could share where you get your herbs from please ^_^ love your videos by the way!!!

  4. Im sure someone has already asked this but where do you get YOUR black soap and shea butter? I have mine from coastal scents and I was just wondering where you got yours so I can try it next time I order. Thanks!!

  5. I meant my black soaps pH ranged from a low of 7 to a high of 9 (it seems to vary from batch to batch and from region of origin probably) before I brought the pH down .

  6. My black soaps usually fell between a pH of 6-7. I used to use the acidifiers (aloe, acv or citric acid) with water to bring the pH to between 4.6 and 5.5. Also, I always leave the black soap shampoo on my scalp for 5-10 minutes, in the same manner I would use my prescribed shampoos (I have diagnosed seboseborrheic dermatitis). HTH

  7. I tried Aloe vera juice and it completely neutralized the soap. I figured it’s the acid-base combination. I haven’t found a way to lower the PH effectively so I always follow with ACV rinses or toner.

  8. Hmmmh! I tried Aloe vera juice and it completely neutralized the soap. I figured it’s the acid-base combination. Maybe I used to much Aloe? Did you ever get the PH to go down? I have resulted to ACV rinses until I or someone else breaks this mystery.

  9. Oh I hear you! Yes, you can. In fact I use it for hair, body and delicate laundry (read undies, sorry if that’s TMI) and it’s absolutely perfect. I like to pamper my face so I use chamomile, calendula for that formula instead but sometimes I just wash my face with this one.

  10. I have been compiling but not yet posted. Time constraints. Is there something you are looking for in particular?
