THE POWER OF BLACK SEED OIL AND MANGO BUTTER
Black Seed Oil has been used for thousands of years for healing and medicinal purposes, having been mentioned by Greek philosophers and ancient texts alike. It was even discovered in King Tut’s tomb. Over 630 peer-reviewed studies have found it to contain over 100 elements of proteins, alkaloids and saponins.
When it comes to Afro hair, Black Seed is highly emollient, meaning it effectively penetrates the follicles and cuticles of your hair to achieve maximum hydration. Extensive studies have also shown it to have restorative properties that feed and nourish the scalp.
With its antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal properties it’s also highly effective in reducing flaking and combating the environmental causes of early hair loss.
With a lack of moisture leading to a number of issues including poor growth, patchiness, scalp issues and breakage we understood that although it is important to hydrate the hair, keeping that moisture in is just as important!
Many products on the shelves do not contain enough of the nutrients needed to effectively penetrate and nourish Afro hair types, many actually do more harm than good by in fact stripping the hair of what it needs for healthy growth.
The outer layer of your hair is known as the cuticle, this is made of overlapping cells that strengthen and protect the hair shaft. In Afro hair this cuticle is naturally raised and does not lay flat, as a result it loses moisture at a much faster rate and tangles far easier, as shingles lock into each other.
In an effort to address this, we discovered the amazing benefits of Mango Butter. Mango Butter is packed with fatty acids and vitamins, it is a moisture rich food for your hair which protects the cuticle from damage and is especially advantageous in moisture retention.
It supports the cuticle to strengthen the outer layer of your hair and protect it from environmental damage. By creating softer, plumper hair, you are less prone to tangles and thus less breakage caused by everyday brushing and combing.
