Does your shower reveal a stereotypical gender display of ten bottles of specialty beauty products geared toward you on one side, and a bar of soap and cheap shampoo for him on the other side? Mango Designers have suggestions to simplify your shower situation by using Cross-Over products. What are Cross-Over Products?  They are unisex beauty products that work for men and women's hair.


Mango Designers have suggestions to simplify your shower situation and give his hair the same care you give your own (equal rights for equal hair!)

“Using a shampoo that moisturizes your scalp and strengthens your hair will prevent dryness and will also make hair look fuller and grow out better. Everyone looks better with healthy full hair--- men and women,” says Sean Bryne, Elite Master Designer for Mango Salon. Below are two shampoo and conditioner sets that he recommends as Cross-Overs.





Common Myths

-Only men experience hair loss

Wrong! According to the American Academy of Dermatology 40 percent of women experience visible hair loss by the time they are 40.

-Only women need to condition their hair.

While men with short hair may not have to condition daily, they should be conditioning a few times a week. Cleansing strips some of your scalp’s essential oils. Conditioning closes the hair cuticle and restores nutrients to your hair. It also helps your hair dry smoother--making it easier to style.


Katia Ocampo, Designer at Mango’s Short Pump location, advises clients who are buying for themselves and their partners to select a shampoo and conditioner with a more neutral scent (not too masculine or feminine.) Bumble and bumble’s Gentle Shampoo and Super Rich Conditioner are a good combination that work for everyone, as is Bumble’s Full Potential Shampoo and Conditioner. “Full Potential has the added benefit of a nice menthol, cooling feel on your scalp and shoulders,” says Ocampo. For curly hair on men and women, Bumble and bumble Surf Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner is a nice way to add some texture and style.
