What is the ambunu?

The African pharmacopoeia is very rich in plants with therapeutic virtues, which make it possible to maintain natural health. But, it's not just about the health of our bodies. It can also be, for example, hair health.

As a result, ambunu is an African plant known for its virtues in the field of hair health. Found mainly in Chad, Niger, Mozambique, and Burkina Faso, ambunu is a seasonal herbaceous plant that grows just after the rainy season. Also called Yodo or Yodho, depending on the region, the use of the ambunu dates back centuries in the purely Chadian and Nigerian tradition of women. We can clearly see that the virtues of this plant have been recognized for ages.

Why use the ambunu?

You have certainly already used many products for the maintenance of your hair, without having very much success. Have you tried natural products like ambunu? You should. Nature offers us everything we need to take care of ourselves, and with great efficiency. So here are some reasons why you should adopt the ambunu in your hair care routine.

Ambunu contains saponins. You wonder what it is, well, saponins are molecules naturally produced by plants or animals. They have surfactant properties, and help to lather the leaves of the ambunu when they come into contact with water. Thanks to this composition, they allow ambunu leaves to cleanse the scalp and hair thoroughly, without attacking them.

Shikakai is a very effective powder in hair treatment. It also contains a large amount of saponins. You are probably wondering why it is suddenly shikakai. Well this is to tell you that although shikakai is as effective as ambunu at cleaning hair, the latter has one advantage that makes it better at shikakai. Indeed, the ambunu has its own sticky texture which makes it easier to disentangle the hair. This gives it a natural revitalizing power.

Thanks to the ambunu, disentangling the hair becomes much easier. Detangling being a very important step in hair maintenance, it is crucial to do it with great delicacy at the risk of losing hair. It prevents these risks of hair loss by making disentangling easier and easier to perform. Ambunu makes it easy to overcome knots in your hair, which saves you a lot of time. Ambunu gently washes, hydrates, strengthens, brings suppleness and softness, brings shine, relieves itching of the scalp, also fights against alopecia (hair loss), and stimulates hair growth.

You might think that the ambunu is only good for the hair, but no. Ambunu is also used in traditional African medicine for its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, antibacterial, anti-diarrheal, and anti-diabetic properties, to name but a few. It is also used against diabetes, intestinal problems, fatigue in general.

The properties and virtues of ambunu both for the hair and for the body are of great importance. Plus, it's completely natural and inexpensive unlike the chemicals you use. So, opt for the ambunu, it's natural and economical.
