A natural journey to discover the beauty of natural hair
Almost 7 years ago, Mugethi has started her natural hair journey.
Before she has used ordinary beauty products that include chemicals, and which are usually imported by the EU. It has been difficult for her to find natural products and it has been challenging at the beginning to wear the hair natural, because it is still perceived as “unprofessional” in the Kenyan society.
This experience has reminded her of her school time in which it was not allowed to wear your natural hair because of its nsocial perception. She wants that young women understand that:
Natural hair is beautiful!
