Is it true that traversing through ancient dune pathways are nomadic women showcasing some of the longest hair in the world? Is it possible that some of the longest, most illustrious manes in the world are found in the often desolate Sahel? Arriving in caravans in countries like Chad, the long haired women bring the secret to their flowing tresses to trade in the bazaars. Each woman exposes the powder of their own hand and personal formulation. Finely ground from seeds and resin, the powder they call Che'be' (shay-bay) is undeniably credited for guarding their hair against breakage. The result is hair longer than any other in Africa. 

These nomadic women of Chad, a people of African and Arab roots, have mastered the rituals of hair care. It can take months to collect the ingredients for their Che'be' Powder. Once they have collected the seeds, spices and resin, they grind them into a fine powder. The powder is then mixed with a thick oil to form a cerate which the women will apply to each others' hair. The unguent is then braided into the hair and left in for long periods of time. The mixture gives great strength to the hair as it decreases breakage. Women throughout the world are now discovering the tradition of the Chadian women with astonishing results. Growth of several inches have been accomplished in women who have never been successful in growing out their hair. Discover the Che'be tradition for yourself.
