MFH says

Smells clean. Styles clean. Great texture… but minimal hold.

I’d recommend for guys with naturally thick hair, or long hair that just needs a little bit of definition. Not so great for guys with fine, flyaway hair.

About Firsthand Supply

“We believe people matter. So we make stuff that matters. Everything we say, do, and make supports that truth. We’re building a company that values people on both sides of the transaction – through honest sourcing, sustainable process, and a heavy dose of give-a-damn”.

Packaging

1 Firsthand jar = 1 recycled milk jug

Since launching they have been able to recycle the plastic from over 50,000 plastic jugs. They have managed to create a line completely out of recycled plastics. 

After months of research they have found a material called PCR (Post Consumer Resin). It’s a plastic material that is created by recycling old used plastics and remaking it into little “beads” that a container manufacturer can use to mold into containers. This material had the potential to allow us to close the loop on our packaging supply chain. 

“Most manufacturers that we reached out to either didn’t use the material or didn’t want to. When we finally located a manufacturer that would we had to source our own resin. We found an amazing company out of Pennsylvania that began over 30 years ago and has become the largest plastics recycler and PCR Resin provider in the world. Through them we were able to source our HDPE PCR resin which is essentially recycled milk jugs.”

Ingredients

Kaolin Clay: This clay gently cleanses hair and scalp, without excessive drying. It stimulates blood circulation and gently exfoliates the scalp while cleansing. Kaolin clay strengthens hair, improves elasticity, and helps repair damaged hair. It soothes the scalp, helps treat dandruff, and encourages hair growth.
Shea ButterHelps with hair growth, soothes an irritated scalp, and works as an anti-dandruff remedy. (An irritated scalp can lead to itching and eventually dandruff.) Tames unruly hair, protects hair from damage, heat protection, and moisturizes the hair.
Jojoba OilThis oil moisturizes the scalp and may be a dandruff remedy. Jojoba is rich in vitamins and minerals that nourish hair, including vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, copper, and zinc. Because it strengthens hair, it is also thought that jojoba oil can prevent hair loss and promote hair thickness.
