Marula red box, wood comb, sample

Tips: Very effective on damp hair after towelling freshly washed hair or lightly spritzed hair.
You can separate hair into small sections – the smaller the better for even coverage.
Apply from ends to root, massaging in gently. Remove shed hairs.
It is best used as a setting cream for bomb twist-outs, under a weave (your hair remains super soft even after 2 weeks!) or to touch up fly-aways in a bun!
Any other products in your line that they might be interested in.
Our line of Baobab moisturising sulfate free shampoo and our Babbasu Deep Treatment Masque with Tucuma and Murumuru butter  will both be available next year.
Where can your brand be purchased?
