Statistically, Nigeria’s cosmetics industry is worth over 500 billion naira and it keeps growing every day.
Hair cream is one of the most sought-after products in the market. People need hair cream to keep their hair oily, shiny and clear-off scalp dryness that gives way to the development of dandruff.
Anti-Dandruff Hair Cream is a type of hair cream that people use to prevent, treat dandruff. Having dandruff can be embarrassing. Naturally, some individuals have dry skin and dandruff loves people like that. To save oneself from embarrassment, it’s good to apply it to one’s hair after having a bath.
Dandruff is caused by the presence of a fungus called Malassezia. The good news is it’s not contagious as some people claim. Almost everyone has the presence of the aforementioned fungus on their scalp—this is why people don’t take washing their hair with shampoo lightly every day.

HOW WILL YOU MARKET YOUR PRODUCT?
Get a good graphic designer to design a product label sticker and fliers for your product. It’s better to hire a designer who specializes in packaging graphic design so that you get good results. ( Note: I can help you design with eye-catching visuals and glossy stickers that make sales)
Start to market your product within your circle of influence. You can consider giving the product to people for free and you ask for feedback weeks after they have been using the product.
Check barbershops and beauty salons in your environment. Go there and introduce your great anti-dandruff hair cream to them. Explain how better your cream is than the current brands in the market. Give them free samples to test out. Don’t leave the customers you meet there out of your freebies. Visit them weeks after for feedback.
Sell to barbershops and beauty salons in bulk—through this, they will make money and you will too. Offer pay-later options to them. Another marketing strategy you can use is: make the ones barbers and hairdressers will be using for customers in their shop in a big container and put a reasonable price on it. You can also sell this big container of cream to people that have boys living with them.
As your business is growing, don’t forget to get your product certified by NAFDAC.
