alexander-mils-instagram-com-alexandermils-320031

It may not be obvious, but yes there are a number of local brands that have products for natural hair and skin care. The most popular one might be Marini, but there are more and in this article I’ll highlight them and the products that they have. Reasons for doing this is:

  1. People tend to get inspiration from YouTube, which is great, but they most often also want to get the products that have been used in that particular tutorial. This ends up being very expensive because those products definitely have to be shipped.
  2. There are local made products that are really great for natural hair that you can incorporate in your hair care routine.
  3. I love local brands ๐Ÿ™‚
