Mongongo & Banana 100% Natural Shampoo Mongongo & Banana 100% Natural Shampoo

From the sand dunes of the Kalahari, a miracle tree grows, heavily laden with nutritious nuts. In a desolate place where all would seem to be lost, the iKung people have successfully flourished for thousands of years often times on a diet of mongongo nuts alone. After steaming the nuts the incredibly hard shell becomes easier to break. Inside lies a creamy colored, delicious nut containing 57% oil. Rich in protein, high in vitamin E and trace minerals from the Kalahari, this amazing oil helps to nourish hair follicles as it protects the hair from splitting. Just a little oil rubbed into the scalp and ends a day will help replenish hair suffering from damage and dietary insufficiencies.

Our Mongongo Nut Oil is 100% pure. Destitute people living in the Kalahari region gather nuts to sell to the mill where our oil is pressed. This is often the only form of income for some of the world's poorest people.

  I have alopecia so I use this oil so my hair can grow And it does. I also use Chinese medicine products so maybe the combination helps. It smells like fresh cut grass and the smell dissipate rapidly.It absorbs well and doesn't leave my hair greasy. I will buy this oil again.

Gone Nutty For Mongongo!
  I ABSOLUTELY love this oil and will definitely repurchase. I use it every other to every two days to massage my scalp and moisturize my ends. If you're not a die hard naturalista, it may take some getting used to the scent. The best way to describe it is smokey. I assume that's from roasting the nuts. However, if you are well into your natural journey and have developed an intolerance for synthetic fragrances, you'd probably appreciate the earthy, natural scent of this lovely oil.

Great for heat styling!
  I have AA hair that is all natural/virgin and this is simply miraculous on the hair when heat styling. I love to use this on my wet hair (right after cleansing)before blow drying, and I add a few more drops on my dry hair right before flat ironing. I have not relaxed my hair in over 1 1/2 years and this makes my hair look EXACTLY as it did before I decided to go chem-free! Also smells nice and leaves a gorgeous sheen. Makes the scalp feel soothed as well. It is no easy task to find all natural products that work this well on AA hair for women that are transitioning from relaxers, but this is one I will always keep by my side.

My hair loves this!
  This worked wonderful on my naturally kinky hair. This is the first product I've used that has kept my scalp from being dry & itchy. I will definitely purchase again.
