Chebe powder is an ancient powder from Chad which is the secret of their extremely long hair. It is said to promote length retention by keeping hair moisturized for longer. Some people have also said it made their hair thicker.

I recently got some and decided to try it out to see if it would live up to the hype.


1. Moisturizing

After moisturizing my hair, I seal with my chebe butter mix and braid my hair. When I take out the braids, my hair is always suuuuuper moisturized ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. It was almost unbelievable. I also noticed that it gave me amazing curl definition ๐Ÿ‘Œ.

2. Deep Conditioner

I added the chebe powder to my avocado deep conditioner. After applying, I heated it up with my steamer from @bellz_nhcc for 2 hours.

What I noticed:

The curl definition I got is definitely out of this world!๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 3 days after and my hair is still curly! And have I told you how moisturized my Zuzu still is???? Honestly, it’s unbelievable!

My hair was surprisingly very stretched after I rinsed out the DC. This was unusual because my hair normally shrinks like crazy.

My hair is also definitely thicker since I started using chebe. It’s thicker through the entire length and not just at the roots. I’m very happy (I’m sure you can tell๐Ÿ˜Š)

And please help me check out my length! You would never believe that these pictures were taken exactly 9 days apart๐Ÿ˜ฑ

My Verdict:

Chebe powder receives a big thumbs up from me๐Ÿ‘. I’ve been using it for about a month. It will definitely be a part of my regimen from now on. Since I started, my hair is definitely stronger, it no longer breaks like it used to๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ. I’ve also noticed that my Zuzu has been much much more moisturized. Zuri and I are very happy๐Ÿ˜Š

If you’ve tried Chebe and you think it didn’t work, I advise that you be patient. I started seeing results almost two weeks after I started using it. Don’t give up. Keep using it regularly, great results are on the way.

However, be careful not to use too much of the powder. Otherwise, you’ll just be dripping chebe all day. A little goes a long way๐Ÿ‘Œ

P.S: Has anyone else noticed what the Lord has done for my edges? ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ


Chebe powder is now available on my e-commerce site here to get yours now.

  1. Please…I just got a big chop to start my natural hair journey all over again…plls can you help me with recommendations on tips on what to do from there and on also recommendations on products I can start with…am just 5 days into the journey after the big chop…….thanks


  2. Hi Iโ€™m kinda scared to use it as a conditioner. I was on a site that said you have to mix it with water and use it as a water-based leave in or else, only mixing it with oil and not water, can seal your hair so much that moisture doesnโ€™t get in anymore (even when you wash it out) so it starts to be drying. Is that true?
