Hola Queens ( oh how i missed saying that ),
I have been trying different things with my hair in the month of July. I think there is so many methods and different treatments from different parts of the world. Have you heard of Chebe Powder before?
Have you been curious about trying Chebe? Want to try it on but you don’t know where to start?
What is Chebe?
Chebe is mix of herbs created by Chadian Women. The mixture is made of Lavender Groton ( which is grown everywhere in africa), Cloves, Reisin Tree, Cherry seeds, Prunus Mahaleb – which these are known to aid to hair growth, thickness and moisture retention. Chebe lengthens the hair making the hair look longer and fuller.
Chadian have been able to grow their hair below their bum and they claim is the chebe powder and their application that keep them locks growing. When I was doing my research on Chebe, the results kept me shoooook, and all I could think about was ” I need to start this ASAP”.
Chebe is not applied to the scalp but rather the hair since it is a potent mix of herbs and it might irritate the scalp, it is applied on the hair itself to nourish the locks. Chebe works better when tucked away in a low manipulation style aka braids/twists. I prefer braid as it keeps everything in and its neater.
Balances the Ph of hair shaft
Contains Anti Inflamatory Properties
Chadian woman have long, black and thick hair using this method, but if Chebe is not supposed to be applied on the scalp, how can it promote hair growth?
Our hair is always growing, and what most of us struggle with is length retention. Applying the chebe to the hair and tucking it on braids, it keeps the hair protected even if the hair is in contact with cotton or other harsh fabrics. Which puts less stress on the ends of our hair, which will keep them moisturised and healthy. The ends of our hair need to be taken care of on a daily basis.
Chebe powder is used by thousands of people worldwide who attest to helping their hair retain lengths and get thicker.
Only 2 products needed : Chebe Mix, Oil/Grease & Water. Traditionally use Karkar oil.
- Separate the hair into medium sections.
- Get the hair wet with water – ensuring the hair is not soaking wet but wet enough for the cuticles to be open. Detangle that section.
- Alternating between the chebe and the oil/grease until the hair is fully saturated and braid the section of hair.
- Repeat in all sections.
- Apply the water in the hair to lock it off
- Repeat set 3 every 3-5 days until the hair is due for a wash.
There are a few application that makes it easy for modern day application of chebe powder. Most of us live in a city and have jobs, and Chebe can make your hair look like its dirty.
I recommend these applications if you have never tried Chebe Powder before, since it’s an introductory level and all natural recipes and it will not be overwhelming for you.
- In a bowl mix chebe powder, deep conditioner, preferred oil and preferred grease.
- Spray hair with water and detangle
- Apply to the hair and braid
Chebe overnight mask
There are many different combinations you can do for a chebe mask. Whatever you have at home, what ever your hair needs at the time you can use Banana, Avocado, Honey, Oils, Aloe Vera Gel, Egg, and Chebe Powder. Use all or use selected ingredients and blend it. Your hair will feel stronger and softer – extremely soft
Chebe butters have become a much easier and neater way to apply Chebe, benefit from the properties but still have your hair look nice whilst having it on.
Chebe, Shea Butter/Mango Butter + Coconut Oil or/and Olive Oil
