YOUR HAIR'S DAILY DAIRY
Mentega. /muhn-tae-ga/ – ‘butter’ in the Malay language. Sharing the fine, personal things made with two hands. Mentega started with the idea to create products that perform well under tropical climate, with the beauty of having them made by hand. We offer grooming services at our own barbershop The Oven Cuttery. Scroll down to make an appointment or to look at our selection of handmade products.
We are proud to announce to you our latest hair product, the Analogue Hair Paste. This project is a three way collaboration between Mentega, The Oven Cuttery and our good friends The Apothecary Malaysia.
We formulated this product to be a strong (yes, we mean strong) hold and slick product, but the cherry on top is in its element of scent — the expertise of The Apothecary Malaysia.
Being a hair product brewery that also runs a barbershop, we’ve had the opportunity to make various types of products while being able to learn about people’s hair grooming needs. With this partnership, we took it another notch.
You now have a product with excellent hold and slickness with a scent to die for.

The Mentega Lagoon Water-based Pomade is our take on a hairstyling product that contains some of the best characteristics of traditional oil-based pomade but with water-based attributes such as water-solubility and without greasiness.
Mentega Lagoon is designed to be a strong hold pomade with a low shine finish — not overly matte but also not too shiny. It has the versatility to style a slick and tight or a more natural look. It is also re-stylable throughout the day like traditional pomade. If heavy amount is applied, there will be a minimal amount of build-up.
