Shine Shine Shine!Classic CurlsDehydration & DamageApril 19, 2018Love this oil! It's great to use to break my cast, and I also use it on second/third/fourth day hair after the Botanical Boost to help with the frizz. It gives my hair great shine. I took off a star because it is pricey, and I feel like I use it up fairly quickly.
Needed moreClassic CurlsDehydration & DamageApril 16, 2018I do like this oil more than other oils I have tried and much more than coconut oil- However I am used to not needing to use a lot of oil to get the desired less frizz- With this I would need a lot more than any other oil. Still good stuff. I also used on my daughters straight hair (just a couple tiny drops) and it made it soooo soft!

LoveLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageApril 3, 2018Love to add this after I’m done styling my hair. Cuts any frizz and just softens my hair.
Nice shine and finisherTight CurlsDehydration & DamageApril 2, 2018I bought this oil a few weeks ago and I have to say i love how it adds shine and keeps the frizz in line. Highly recommend this product.
shineLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageApril 2, 2018I like that it gave shine, did not weigh my loose curls down. It did not spray well though- it streamed and ruined my shirt. So I spray on my hands and run it through my hair.
Did nothing for meTight CurlsNormal/HealthyMarch 31, 2018This did nothing for my hair in terms of moisture or even adding shine on second-day curls. I have low porosity curls so the oil would just sit on top of my curls. I'm sticking with my conditioner/water for a refresh.
great finisherKinky CurlsDehydration & DamageMarch 29, 2018I used as part of getting my hair back its luster in a dry climate. My husband, who has tight curls, had even better outcome than I did.
Helps with DefinitionClassic CurlsDehydration & DamageMarch 23, 2018This oil does add moisture/helps hydrate curl, and my curls are more defined when I use it after washing, which is why I keep using it. But I don't love the smell, which from other reviews appears to be hit or miss with people. And you have to be really careful not to use too much or else you end up looking like you're walking around with gross, greasy hair.
Perfect for Kinky Curly HairKinky CurlsColor-TreatedMarch 22, 2018I love this oil! I usually use a lighter oil such as jojoba or argan to seal in moisture. I’ve decided to add this and drop jojoba as it works so well. I just wish it came in a bigger size as I like to stock up on my hair products.
- 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
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.
