The Perfect Hair founder Taryn Gill on the business of natural hair Taryn Gill started The Perfect Hair on a shoestring budget.
Watch as she tells us about her quest to nurture black women's hair in South Africa Thanks to a global movement towards natural hair, many women have stopped using relaxers and other harmful products to straighten and maintain their hair. These days, hair-conscious women are looking for ways to moisturise and wash their hair with natural, sulphate-free products.
A dearth of such products on the South African market inspired Taryn Gill to start The Perfect Hair. Her products are produced with the help of a trichologist, which is someone who studies the science of hair. Using unique and organic African oils like African Melon Seed oil and Mongongo oil, Taryn says her products cater for all hair types, including the really coily hair that most South African women have.
