Have you heard of Chebe powder?

I promise you, I’m in the same boat with those who answered No.

I remember mouthing off to my hairstylist (who I’m over the moon to be reunited with, just by the way)

About all the treatments I researched on during the lockdown/our time apart, all the beauty secrets I’d uncovered, tried and tested

to keep busy and ensure my hair didn’t become a mess amidst the pandemic anxiety.

I was telling her all about my love for rice water

and all the benefits I’ve personally witnessed since introducing the treatment into my life.

A few minutes later, my friend walks into the conversation and immediately chimes in about her own experience with natural hair treatments and the wonderments of Chebe powder…

What Is Chebe Powder?

Chebe powder is a natural-based powder concocted in Chad.

Chad is a landlocked country in central Africa.

It is bordered by Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon and Nigeria to the southwest, Niger to the west, and Libya to the north.

 

Chebe powder is used by women of a Chadian ethnic group, giving them exceptional quality and length of hair.

The women apply it to their hair to help it grow strong and long—in some cases, as long as 30 inches.

Sis no matter your hair type?

You’re ensured growth and a healthy lush curl pattern.

Get ready for people wondering if it’s a weave or your real hair.

 

 

What Is inside Chebe powder that makes it soooo good?

Sorry Chad ladies, your secret is out!

The Chebe ingredient is famous hair growth powers but I know you’re wondering…what’s inside Chebe powder that makes it sooo damn good?

The powder is a mix of Shébé seeds (from the croton zambesicus plant), mahllaba soubiane seeds, missic stone, cloves and samour resin.

How Do I Use Chebe Powder?

You can mix the powder with an oil of your choice such as coconut oil and then apply to damp hair as a mask.

Or, you can buy it via an already-mixed cream such as the S+AVA’s Chebe Hair Cream

S+AVA is a godsend. The brand creates Lux Organic Skin and Haircare Products

in South Africa with the hair cream being one of its bestsellers.

Once you apply the homemade mask or cream, you need to leave it in your hair for a few days to ensure it works wonders.

 

DISCLAIMER

The powder can be messy and quite difficult to wash out, but buying a pre-made cream will ensure a more fuss-free experience plus even if you cannot get the cream, that smell is a small sacrifice for the ultimate goal,no?

 

 

I’m someone who will go the extra mile to try out such treatments so keep your eyes peeled to this platform to find out when, how and the result of my own Chebe hair experiment.

 

For now bye, lovers!
