Abisara Machold:                                                                                                             Founder of Inhairitance/ Fondatrice de Inhairitance

Natural for 17 years, Abisara has extensive training on the science behind the chemical ingredients in hair-care and beauty products. Beginning her journey in Germany and Austria and graduating with a Masters degree in Communications and Political Science at the University of Vienna, she has a sharp sense of what it means to be an entrepreneur. Abisara is passionate about the commitment to naturally enhanced curly/coily/locked hair through self empowerment and education.Settling in Montreal in 2009, she kept up-to-date in her field and enrolled in hair-care courses. She continues her research and gives workshops, in and out of Montreal, to better understand and deliver successful, natural hair regiments. She practices and promotes the upkeep of a natural lifestyle, from roots to skin to body, through the creation of her own personal products. Abisara understands firsthand the emotional turmoil that comes with hair choices – and their consequences. This helped pave the way to the creation and existence of Inhairitance as we know it today – a safe space for all curly/coily/locked needs, questions and concerns.
