As a child in Nigeria, she used homemade high quality products to nurture her hair. When she started schooling in London, she no longer had access to the homemade high quality products she used as a child.
She was taking out a sew-in hair extension and her already breaking hair just fell and fell until she could see her empty scalp. She was working in corporate at the time at one of the world's largest cosmetic company so naturally, she tried everything they had but nothing worked. She started reading ingredient lists religiously and googling endlessly into the night.Enter Youtube (this was 12 years ago!) and the re-discovery of oils and herbs and she was obsessed!
As her hair grew back, she shared her growing knowledge and concoctions with her family, friends and friends of friends who asked her to sell it to them. That was the inception of Equi Botanics.
