Welcome, Omar! :wave:
I'm mostly a CP girl myself, but I do HP when I'm making shave soaps or working with an ornery FO.
I agree with the others on HP needing to cure as long as CP (if not longer at times, depending). Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there on the interwebs that says otherwise, which makes it hard for newcomers to the craft to be able to discern truth from half-truths or outright myths.
If I really want to, I can safely use my water-discounted CP right away after unmolding, because it's my habit to fully gel it and it's always zap-free for me upon unmolding (as zap-free as cooking HP though the gel stage to zaplessness). But as I've found out time and time again after trying my soap (whether CP or HP) at different stages, it's nowhere near as pleasurable to use (or as long-lasting) as it is at 4 to 6 weeks down the road.
Of course, none of us means to say that that one cannot use their soap at whatever point they wish, but we just want to bring home the point that having a fully saponified and zapless soap on one's hands is really only just the beginning.
In other words, although the oils and lye have cleared their biggest chemical hurdle by becoming soap, several, slower, micro-processes are actually still going on inside the soap beyond that point that are gradually changing the crystalline structure of the soap- changes that work towards gradually increasing the soap's lathering abilities and that make the soap more mild and longer-lasting.
As many long-term soapers can attest to through their repeated experimentations over extended periods of time (even up to a year or more in certain instances), these changes just cannot be rushed.
