Back to natural hair

Hair in Africa is big business, but in Nigeria concerns over the effects of many of the products is causing a return to natural products and hair.

The black hair care industry is big business with some estimates valuing the global industry at $2.5 billion. However a greater awareness of the potential side effects has seen a move away from chemicals to natural products and natural hair in the Nigerian capital city of Abuja.

Small and medium-sized businesses are also getting involved in the development of natural products that are not damaging to hair.
