Shea for Waves and Curls
Originally launched in 1995 so that iconic hairstylist Frédéric Fekkai could offer the benefits of Shea Butter to his clientele, FEKKAI reinvents his beloved collection with enhanced performance, cleaner ingredients, and sustainable packaging.
The deeply hydrating collection features cleansers, hair treatments, and oils. Suited for all wave and curl types, our Shea Butter collection is sustainably-sourced. Blended with Monoi Oil, a natural conditioner, it helps hydrate, revive, strengthen, moisturize, and soften to reveal the silkiest strands.
We are thrilled to announce that our cruelty-free hair care has now been certified by Leaping Bunny. Our clean, vegan, and sustainable hair products are crafted from natural ingredients and tested on all textures in our salons—never on our animal friends.
This Leaping Bunny certification and our commitment mean everything to us, and we hope you'll come along on our journey as we continue to develop more sustainable products that improve your routine and your hair.
We've swapped in natural and naturally-derived ingredients for controversial ones that don't play fair. FEKKAI products are free of silicones, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, unnecessary colorants and dyes, formaldehyde, mineral oil, sodium chloride, glutens, mineral oil, palm oil, and many other controversial ingredients.

All FEKKAI formulas undergo extensive salon testing with our stylists to ensure that every formula meets the highest standards of performance. We also conduct efficacy testing with a third-party lab to approve and validate performance claims.
