Comprising Manketti Oil Shampoo (£18/250ml), Manketti Oil Conditioner (£18/250ml) and Manketti Oil (£36/100ml), the products are all free from SLS, parabens and silicones and are suitable for extensions, natural, relaxed, braided and colour-treated hair.

Ethically and sustainably sourced from manketti nuts which grow on mongongo trees in northern Namibia, manketti is loaded with vitamin E (around 563mg per 100g of shelled nuts) and a plethora of nutrients including calcium, magnesium, protein, zinc and copper. Unlike coconut oil that is higher in saturated fatty acids or monosaturated jojoba oil, manketti is high in polyunsaturated fatty acids, which act as a barrier to help prevent moisture from escaping from the hair for longer.

In addition to unveiling the range, Charlotte who has won over a dozen awards including Afro Hairdresser of the Year 2013, 2014 and Black Beauty/Sensationnel Stylist of the Year awards 2012, 2014, during a career spanning almost 30 years, treated guests to a live demonstrations to showcase the results the products deliver on a variety of hair types.

I work with a group of people where we produce Manketti oil from Naturally growing Manketti trees in the Kalahari sand forests in Southwestern Zimbabwe. Our oil is unadulterated and purely organic. I was wondering if you would be interested in aqcuiring some from us as we are just starting our business and currently in search of potential buyers. Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.
