      Hair fried? You know Shea Terra Organics. We've got you covered in more ways than you want to ever imagine possible. Now dip into a luscious jar of mongongos and bananas and feed your hair back to life. At this point, you are probably scratching your hair fry and wondering what the heck mongongo is. So okay, we'll let you in on a little secret. Mongongo is a highly nutritious nut that grows in marginal regions across southern Africa. The nut is traditionally eaten by the San and iKung tribes, giving them strength and vitality in very harsh living conditions. The oil-rich nuts are high in fat, protein, calcium and vitamin E, making the oil an ideal food source for the hair.

By this point, we are sure you are going bananas over mongongos, but we are not quite finished with our food masque supreme. Nay, we go out on a limb to add a generous amount of mashed banana puree to our mongongo and shea butter blend. Bananas weren't just created for monkeys, gorillas and apes (no, they aren't all the same). They were created for hair too, you know, a wild, luxurious mane of hair. One that brings out the inner beast in you. You know the one. The one that hollers and shouts in the shower as you massage Mongongo & Banana Deep Conditioning + Pre-Shampoo Hair Food Masque all over your head. Oooh, ooh, ah But stop that. Let's stay focused on the important things. Bananas are high in potassium, which softens and conditions hair. Their high mineral and vitamin content is believed to help nutritionally depleted hair grow better. Bananas also contain their own natural oil which conditions and coats the hair with a protective barrier, strengthening the hair against breakage.

     Okay, so what is the deal with the pre-shampoo thing. Alright, alright. Shea Terra Organics is known to be a pioneer, a leader, not a follower. And we still are, believe us. But and you know there has to be one of those, with everyone using the pre-shampoo word these days we think using the word is our opportunity to break in. Pre-shampoo is nothing new. It really isn't. Only the term is new. People from traditional cultures from India to Asia to Africa have always, uh um, pre-pooed their hair. In fact, Tammie herself has been pre-pooing her hair since she was a teenager, massaging her hair in virgin coconut oil and ayurvedic oils, often sleeping with it overnight before shampooing it out in the morning. One time the high school children nearly ran her out of the school the ayurvedic oil stunk so badly. Although this ancient way of producing long, luxurious hair really works, Tammie vowed that none of Shea Terras fans would ever be run off with pitch forks, so she created the best darned smelling pre-poo the market will ever experience. So go ahead - dip into a delicious jar of mongongo and bananas and let beautiful, manageable hair begin.

Revitalized Hair
  This product is freaking fantastic! It returned my brittle dried out color damaged hair to it's original soft silky condition. And that with only 1 application. I'm totally hooked now, and it smells good too. Thanks

Soft, hydrated and yummy!
  When I first opened my Mongongo & Banana Deep Conditioning jar I was immediately taken in by an amazing aroma. The smell was so powerful I felt like I died and went to heaven! I have tightly coiled hair and my coils loved it! I would recommend applying this to hair that is soaked in water so that its easier to smooth on the creamy banana goodness! I left it on my hair for about an hour with a plastic cap and my hair felt extremely soft afterwards. A MUST BUY!

Yummy stuff!
  I started my Shea Terra experience with the hair nutrition oil and this stuff! It really smells awesome, just like bananas. It definitely feels like a waxy mask, but if you leave it on an hour after a shower with a towel on your head and rinse out afterward, your hair fees amazing...and for a while! You can definitely tell it helps repair and bring dried damaged hair back to health. A++!

Exactly what I was hoping for!
  Besides smelling good enough to eat, this conditioning product left my hair soft and manageable. I recently had low lights put in my hair, and the product used was new, requiring no "dryer time." Unfortunately, while the low lights are lasting very nicely, my hair felt dry. Today, I used the deep conditioning hair food masque, as directed. My hair is now soft, and I look forward to using it again, soon. This was my first time using the product, but not my last.

love it
  I just LOVE the smell of this. Makes my hair soft and great match up to the Mango shampoo to which I love as well

  First, let me say that this mask does exactly what it claims. My hair has never been smoother and healthier! Second, it is great for color-treated hair. My natural hair color is light brown but I do have some highlights. Not only did it make my hair super shiny, it also made it thicker. P.S. Quick tip: I mix it with the Mongongo nut oil.

  I love this product. I have been using it in my hair as a leave-in conditioner during the day and it has my hair soft and manageable. I have natural african hair and it is cut short. I have found that my hair is experiencing thickness and growth, and I am in my 50s.

Firzzy curly hair GONE
  I have been using Mongongo and Banana now for about a year. During the more humid months, my hair is very frizzy. I put this in my hair and let it sit for about 10 minutes. I wash it out with shampoo or even just another conditioner between washes. Works EVERY time. My curls bounce and my hair shines. I highly recommend this product.
