Yes, the Diploma in Natural Haircare Formulation has been designed in such a way as to teach students how to care for and formulate for Afro-textured hair types (and other hair types too).


The Diploma in Natural Haircare Formulation is designed to take you step-by-step through everything you need to know to formulate your own custom, high-performance shampoos and creamy, perfect conditioners. Learn from experienced and professional formulators and be supported each step along the way.

Our mission is to teach you how to formulate for specific hair types, including Afro-textured hair. We teach you about the physiological and anatomical characteristics that are typical for different hair types and from this knowledge we build your understanding and ability to formulate for different hair types.

In addition to this we provide formulation examples suitable for many hair types, including Afro-textured hair, and also formulations targeted specifically at Afro-textured hair types.
As Afro-textured hair has different characteristics and needs, we have sections in the following lessons dedicated to Afro-textured hair:2.4 Hair Types and Shape covers the structural differences in Caucasian, Asian and African hair in terms of its cross-sectional shape, degree of curl, sebum and shine, grooming ease and breakage, maximum length and strength and the implications of this for haircare.
2.7 Caring for Hair includes a section on caring for Afro-textured hair.
6.2 Formulating Shampoos for Different Hair Types includes formulating for Afro-textured hair. This means you will be able to adapt/create formulations designed for the needs of Afro-textured hair.
8.1 Formulating Different Types of Conditioner includes a section on co-wash (popular among people with Afro-textured hair type)
8.2 Formulating Conditioners for Different Hair Types includes formulating for Afro-textured hair. This means you will be able to adapt/create formulations designed for the needs of Afro-textured hair.
8.7 Formulating Co-wash includes a formulation template for co-wash (which you can adapt to create your own formulation) and a formulation example for co-wash for dry hair.
9.2 Formulating Hair Treatments: we include treatments suitable for Afro-textured hair including hair oil, hair butter/masks and clay hair masks.

The course is laid out in an order that allows you to gain the fundamental theoretical knowledge first and then move on to implement that knowledge by creating your own formulations.
