Chebe powder is a natural-based powder found in Chad, a landlocked country in Africa, where the women apply it to their hair. It's this powder they credit for helping their hair grow strong and long—in some cases, as long as 30 inches. 

The Basara women of Chad are known to have very long, naturally coarse hair that famously goes down to their thighs. They cover their hair with a homemade Chebe mixture that keeps their hair super moisturized and lubricated. For this reason, their hair never breaks. 

It can be mixed with an oil of your choice and then applied to the hair as a mask.


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

  1. Start with clean conditioned, detangled sectioned hair.
  2. In a bowl, depending on the thickness and length of your hair, place the desired amount of Chebe Powder. If your hair is e.g. bra strap length, mix 3 tablespoons of Chebe Powder and 6 tablespoons of Karkar Oil or any desired oil of your choice. in the bowl. Stir with a spoon. You should have a loose soupy mixture.
  3. Dip fingers in the Karkar and Chebe Powder mixture and coat each strand evenly
  4. Braid each section up and leave your hair alone for about 4-5 days
  5. After 4-5 days, rinse hair in the shower and without washing this time, reapply the Chebe powder paste  to hair strands and braid hair back up.
  6. Continue to repeat the above steps until desired hair length is reached.
  7. Wash hair every 2 weeks or you wash it once per month.

The Karkar and Chebe combo mixture will penetrate the hair shaft and the hair follicles and If you follow this strict routine, you will see a healthier longer stronger head of hair. This mixture will in essence lock in moisture to dry damaged hair and impart all those vitamins and nutrients from the Chebe Powder into the hair. 
Chebe powder should not be applied to the scalp as Chebe does not stimulate follicles. It only makes the hair unbreakable.

if your hair is let’s say 1 or 2 inch long then chebe powder is not advisable for you.

YOU could only use Chebe powder if your hair is long enough to be braided on its own.
