What is Chebe Powder?

Chebe powder is a blended mixture of herbs & seeds collected from trees in Africa- it’s a powerful treatment for hair growth used and still used by Nomadic tribes of Chad in Africa.

The Nomadic tribes of Chad are known for having long hair, just like Yao women from Huangluo Village, in Guangxi Province, in southern China, who uses rice water to grow long natural hair.

But Chebe doesn’t grow your hair fast, sorry to disappoint you!

Instead, it supplies nutrients to the hair, strengthening the hair (thereby eliminating brittle and breakage, while it is equal to length retention and length retention, which means longer hair, straightforward logic.)

We must understand that our hair grows normally, but if you lose more than you grow, what will you expect in return?

I wouldn’t want to go too deep into the origin of Chebe Powder because that’s not why you’re here.

What is Karkar Oil?

Karkar Oil is what actually makes the Chebe Powder to be very effective.

The recipe to make KarKar Oil was first sourced from Sudan because it’s a mixture of seed oils and other natural ingredients like Honey, Beef Tallow, and a host of others.

Karkar oil alone without Chebe Powder can help lock moisture into dry natural hair, thicken hair strands, eliminate dandruff, fights hair breakage and split ends.

Now, imagine how powerful it can be when combined with Chebe Powder. Of course, I don’t need to tell you.

Is Chebe Powder Safe?

Even though Chebe powder and Karkar Oil won’t add clearly visible growth to your hair in a week, Basara Arab women of Chad have proven that Chebe Powder And Karkar Oil is totally safe and can supply nutrients and strengthen the hair.

Aside from being safe for use, Chebe powder, as stated earlier, minimizes breakage, helps in moisture and length retention, and most importantly, strengthens the hair.

Does Chebe Powder Have Side Effects

The quick answer is Yes. Chebe powder does have side effects, especially on people with sensitive scalps. Most times, if the contents get on the scalp, it may trigger dandruff, dry scalp, irritation, and possibly serious itching scalp.

I guess this also answered questions like- why can’t you put Chebe Powder on your scalp.

Yes! You’re not permitted to put this product on your scalp, except you want a reason to write negative reviews about Chebe powder and Karkar Oil.

Don’t be scared yet, because there’s a way you will creatively apply the mixture to your hair, and you won’t experience any of Chebe powder’s side effects.

Does Chebe Powder Really Grow Hair?

“Chebe is a miracle worker. I have been using it since July, and my hair is flourishing. My bangs have never gone past my chin, and now they are down to the middle of my chest. The rest of my hair has retained a lot of growth, too, of course. But I always use my bang as a quick measure cause it’s in the front and easier to judge growth in.”ADOSGullahCreole Queen (Youtube Comment)

“I have been using Chebe for about 4 weeks; I follow the way the ladies from Chad put it in. And I love what it is doing to my hair. I have zero breakage with just a little sheading.

How to Prepare Chebe Powder And Karkar Oil

There are many ways you can use this product- for example; you can use it as a deep treatment, moisturizing mask treatment, or as a styling cream.

This section would be huge, but let’s start with preparing the Chebe powder and Karkar oil.

Before doing anything, you need to get the two products and an empty-clean plastic container.

The process is straightforward.

First, you have to transfer some of the powder into the empty container and then pour some of the oil and stir.

While doing this, make sure it’s not too thick, and it’s not too oily – it should be somewhere in between (in the form of Paste)

You can mix the powder with your hair cream without the Karkar Oil, but as I said, this depends on how you intend to use the product and how you want it.

My favorite Natural hair Youtuber Mercy Gono tried the Chebe Powder, and she got something sweet to share. So grab your coffee and your seat.

I am very sure this video would be helpful. So do well to watch and understand.

How to Use Properly

Now Let’s get on how to apply correctly.

  1. First, you need to wash your hair before you apply. Dirt and product build can make the content not to be effective.
  2. After mixing the two, you need to get your water spray bottle to help with the mixture’s absorption. Please make sure your hair is damp as well.
  3. Divide your hair into four sections, so it will be easier for you to manage and work through.
  4. Pick a section and divide it into subsections (Maybe two or three)
  5. Spray some water into the subsection you want to work on and apply the mixture starting from the tip.
  6. Massage the mixture thoroughly and evenly into the sub-section, be sure not to go near your root and scalp. After applying on the subsection, you should braid or twist that section.
  7. Repeat steps 5 & 6 on every section until the whole hair is completely covered.
  8. Cover hair with a shower cap and leave for as long as you wish (but 1-2 hours is fine, so it can be easy to rinse out)
  9. Wash out the mixture with just water.
  10. Lastly, you can apply some hair oil to help seal the nutrients and moisture generated in the process.

If you’re using it to style your hair- I suggest you handle it like your regular hair products, but make sure you do not use too much it and, most importantly, NEVER allow the product to touch your scalp.

If you’re using it as an alternative for your styling cream, be careful of the hairstyle you choose.  Hairstyles that make more than 70% of your hair rest on your scalp is never a good choice.

How Often Should Chebe Powder Be Used?

To be precise, you can use Chebe Powder & Karkar Oil once or twice a week or 4 times a month. Remember that how often you use it depends on why you’re using it and how you’re using it.

However, another clear reason you should not use the mixture often is that it leaves residue on your hair, and it’s never a good idea to manipulate your hair now and then.

I think these are clear and enough reasons that you need.

How Long Can You leave Chebe in hair?

You can leave Chebe on your hair for just an hour or for as long as you wish, but keep in mind that it stains, and it’s a little bit difficult to wash off completely if left for long.

So if you want to sleep with it in on your hair, be sure to cover your hair properly at night.

That’s it for my post on Chebe powder and Karkar oil for hair growth. I hope you found the post helpful.
