Our favorite banana loving primates are onto something. Bananas really do have it all – a fun-loving curvy yellow exterior, and a source of natural goodness on the inside. Packed full of vitamins, minerals and natural oils, they’re the jungle’s very own hair-whisperer. If you use our creamy banana hair products all together in a haircare routine enriched with banana, they’ll help normal to dry hair look shiny and feel nourished and softer. And a quick tip from banana headquarters, dry locks can also be smoothed if you’re mindful to go steady on the temperature when using heat sources like hair dryers and styling tools.

How and where is our banana sourced?

Our Banana hair range is infused with banana puree produced organically by expert farmers in the luscious lands of Ecuador. We’ve got a long-standing relationship with small farmers here by helping them compete against the big banana plantations. This helps locals to raise living standards by investing in education, healthcare and water purification facilities. We think the small guys are the best chance Mother Nature has when it comes to us all working in harmony with each other. Our farmers use organic methods and we use the less-than-perfectly-curved bananas other industries might turn their noses up at. So, it’s pretty much, only cool bananas welcome here.

Let the amorous aroma of ripe bananas seduce you, and scoop on our thick nourishing – WARNING – if you’re not a sharer, get that bathroom door locked before the whole tribe piles in for a head massage.

How to wash and gently detangle your hair

The essential part of your moisturizing haircare routine includes some creamy attention from our Banana Truly Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner. Then you can dollop our Banana Truly Nourishing Hair Mask onto damp hair with your fingers, onto the lengths (avoid 5cm from roots). Never, never, never wrestle a brush through wet hair! Instead, ease our gentle Detangling Comb through your locks while your hair mask is still on.
