Mongongo oil just left my hair looking greasy. I tried again with only one spritz, still didn't help with frizz. But one spritz did make my hair very, very shiny! Brenda

One of the best products on the market

One of the best products to fight dryness and frizz! I highly recommend it. Sherry

I thought for the insane price (for the small size) this would be a miracle product, but it didn't really wow me (even after 2 purchases). It smells wonderful, but it didn't do much to combat frizz or add moisture. As others have said, it made it shiny, but still frizzy somehow... Alana

Not great

I was excited to use the oil, but disappointed. It made my hair dry; shiny, but dry. Brenda

Love the Smell!

I can't stop thinking about how good this product smells. When I first tried it, I had very high expectations that came just a pinch short of being met. But that wonderful smell keeps drawing me in, making me want to try it again. Seriously, the smell is that good! Girl in Curls

I was hoping the oil would help with second day hair but was disappointed it’s very lightweight and all it added was shine. Gloria

Love this product! My hair is so soft. I have a lot of "silver" hair so even with the gel it still looks a little wiry. This product helps soften it. Must use lightly since my hair can't handle too much product do to the silver. Need more pictures and reviews from women who have "silver curly" hair! tx pat

This oil doesn't weigh my hair down the way other oils do, so I can use it daily. Plus it smells great! Sue

This smells fantastic and does wonders for my second day hair. A couple spritz’s and my frizz is gone and I’m ready to go! A little goes a long way so I’m hoping this lasts me quite a while. Kacie

  • Forms a protective barrier on hair's surface to lock in moisture
  • Helps prevent damage from heat styling and UV rays
  • Adds brilliant shine to curls from root to tip


Whether wavy, coily, spiraled, or kinky, when it comes to curls, no two are the same. That's why we designed our Mongongo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment to work for each curl type's individual needs.

Made with oil from the Mongongo Nut and blended with Coconut, American Palm Seed Oil, and Broccoli Seed Oil, this lightweight formula helps seal split ends and protect against heat without leaving loose curls limp or greasy. On classic curls, Mongongo Oil is brilliant for smoothing frizz and flyaways, while tight curls will love the way it adds illuminating shine and smooths the cuticle to perfect each individual coil. It leaves kinky curl types silky soft, strong, and protected by locking in the moisture and nourishment curls crave.

Speaking of nourishment, there's a reason the oil from this nutritious nut is known as "hair food" in its native Zambia: It packs a potent dose of Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid, an essential, unsaturated omega-6 fatty acid that promotes hair health-for your best, most beautiful curls.

How To Use

How To Use

A true multitasker, Mongongo Oil can be used in the shower, on dry hair as a finisher or second-day refresher, or even as a spray-on UV protectant at the beach or pool.

As a conditioner: Cleanse curls with your favorite Ouidad shampoo or co-wash. Pour a quarter-size amount of Mongongo Oil into hand and add a drop of water. Work into wet hair and leave on for 3-5 minutes. Rinse and style as usual.

As a Leave-in: Use fingertips to moisturize scalp and hydrate wet or dry hair.

As a Heat Protectant: Apply before heat styling to protect and help speed drying time without weighing curls down.

As a Finisher: Warm a few drops between palms and apply, concentrating on ends, for frizz control and shine. Perfect for separating tight and kinky curls.

“Mongongo Oil stands out among other oils because of its versatility. It can be used as a conditioner, leave- in, heat protectant, or finisher.”
