Day 11 Sponsored by Almocado
Almocado – Holistic Hair, Skincare and Wellbeing products, handmade in London by a qualified aromatherapist as an extension of her complimentary therapy service.
Why I started my brand?
I graduated from Cambridge University and spent almost 12 years pursuing a fast paced, high pressure career in investment banking. Complimentary therapies and wellbeing services were always a core part of my lifestyle, and I eventually trained as a holistic therapist and sisterlocks consultant, and found that caring for others in my spare time was a self-healing outlet for my creativity.
However, after having my 2nd child I found it increasingly difficult to achieve a suitable work life balance for that kept both my bosses and my family happy. I became quite ill after my 3rd child and lost all of my hair (head and body) and realised that I needed to find a healthy sustainable way to make a living and one of my clients suggested I make what was then my hobby into a full time career.
The Almocado product range was a natural progression from my natural hair, locs and holistic therapy services. My therapy clients would constantly ask whether they could take their body oils home with them; and I realised that I needed affordable reliable products devoid of the ‘purported nasties’ to help cleanse, refresh, soften, moisturise and condition my clients’ hair; products I believed in. So I did my research and assessments and launched my own ranges in 2010.
