Leala is an entrepreneur who has a love and passion for hair-styling. She is a veteran hairstylist with over 18 years of experience, who looks to provide her clients with fragrance-free and allergen-free hair products. Leala’s dedication to her clients, art, and work have led her to research and experiment for two years a product that would do its job efficiently.

In 2012, Leala opened the doors to Nonscents Inc. Her products include fragrance-free and allergen-free shampoos, conditioners, styling creams, styling gels, and hairspray. Unlike the current fragrance-free hair products that are on the market, Nonscents actually does what it is supposed to do, and that is to restore, moisturize, and strengthen hair without causing allergic reactions.

Leala is looking for a $10,000 microloan to finance Nonscents. The loan will help Leala to purchase inventory, maintain the Nonscents website, and run her business efficiently.
