Honestly speaking, until a few minutes ago, I thought this product was American. But after a few seconds research I found out that it's handmade and from South Africa. How amazing is that! It's great to know how we are slowly taking into account how important our natural side is.

Also honestly speaking, I disliked my hair the first time I applied the butter.
The first time I applied it, I might have exaggerated on my products. For my hair got really heavy, but still had frizz, extreme oily and it felt like the butter did not want to blend with the other products.
My second try was yesterday after my homemade hydrating hair mask.
I finilized my hair after with my Novex Leave-In Conditioner and then with the Intense Mango Butter.
Let me tell you, the difference was almost instant. The hair was light, soft, very defined but with a nice volume to it and a nice shine. It might have been the perfect combination.
The butter helped seal the moisture in my hair perfectly, not leaving it dry at the end or on my day after. My day after looks really great, definition every where, shiny and the brown of the dyed hair looks natural.
The butter might not be the easiest product to apply so trying to not over apply is very important in order to keep your curls light, soft and not too oily.
Do not worry about smelling like mangos, because that doesn't really happen. It doesn't even smell like butter either. It has a nice inviting smell that I can't quite put my finger on what it is.
To top it all off, it's an all natural organic product. So you cannot go wrong with this one. Besides your hair, you can also use it on your skin.
I purchased my Mango Butter at Nossa Carapinha. So if you are interested:
