Laughing Bird Shea & Kukui Nut Hair Food (with Avocado, Olive & Beeswax) 250ml

Laughing Bird Shea & Kukui Nut Hair Food (with Avocado, Olive & Beeswax) 250ml

This decadent, nourishing Hair Food has its origins in a South London hair salon, not far from our Elephant and Castle shop.

In stock

Contains avocado, shea butter and more for deep conditioning.

This is an elaboration of a recipe we formulated for a popular braiding salon in South London. It is made especially for Afro Caribbean hair, curly kinky hair or to smooth the frizz from dry or damaged hair. Use to lock in moisture, soften and add sheen and lustre.

Waxy avocado, rich kukui nut oil, castor oil and virgin olive oil blended with golden unrefined beeswax and unrefined organic shea butter provides hair nourishment and helps to prevent hair damage.


Rub into braids, dreads or loose hair for a marvellous conditioning effect. It can also be used as a night conditioner … melt a small amount between your fingertips apply and leave overnight using a towel to protect your pillow. Wash out in the morning or just leave in.

Helen uses this instead of a hair conditioner - “I melt a pea sized amount between my fingers and run them through my towel-dried hair – then I just leave my hair to dry naturally.”
