The workshop was informative and easy-to-follow, carried out in a fun relaxing environment.  I've also learned how to formulate my own natural products that work best for my skin.

In recent years, we have seen a booming market for afro hair products. Now is the time to formulate your own professional shampoo and conditioner for afro hair, and take advantage of this hot trend.


No DIY methods with castile soap, baking soda, coconut milk, and harsh vinegars take place at this workshop! instead, you will be taught how to formulate professional shampoos and conditioners using innovative ingredients in the global beauty industry, to create organic hair care products that can compete with leading brands. We use naturally derived surfactants, emulsifiers, active ingredients and teach from a science-based perspective.
