After Michelle Ntalami’s father was diagnosed with cancer, she was moved to embrace a healthier and more organic lifestyle, and in addition to eating healthier and exercising, she began to rid herself of toxins by refraining from chemically altering her hair.
Once she chopped off her chemically processed strands, she found it nearly impossible to properly take care of her hair due to the lack of organic hair products for Black women with natural hair.
She went on to found Marini Naturals, Kenya’a first 100% natural organic hair care line. Prior to this, she co-ran the Brandvine Group, a branding agency, with her best friend Niyati Patel.
Ntalami has been listed on Top 40 Under 40 lists and received an Entrepreneur of the Year recognition.
