Afro hair care for men
Why Mango Butter?
When it comes to men with afro hair textures, a lack of moisture is the leading cause of issues including poor growth, patchiness, scalp issues and breakage.
Many products on the shelves do not contain enough of the nutrients needed to effectively penetrate and nourish afro hair types. Most actually do more harm than good by in fact stripping the hair of what it needs for healthy growth.

On men with afro and curly hair types, these cuticles are naturally raised and do not lay flat, as a result they lose moisture at a much faster rate and tangles far easier.
Mango Butter is packed with fatty acids and vitamins, it is a moisture rich food for your hair and your beard, which protects the cuticle from damage and is especially advantageous in moisture retention. It strengthens the outer layer of your hair and beard to protect it from environmental damage. Creating softer, plumper afro hair, that is less prone to tangles and breakage caused by everyday brushing and combing.
