I am Carline and I founded Marabou International in 2014 in my native city, Carrefour, Haiti. I am a Chemist, Certified Trichologist, and future Physician. Ever since my transition to my natural curls, I have struggled to find products my hair could thrive on without compromising my health. I realized I was not unique and many women in my community also struggled during their natural hair transition. I was inspired to use my knowledge and skills as a scientist coupled with my grandmother's teachings on traditional Haitian oil making I have been able to help the women in my community and myself. By doing so my team has been able to support the Haiti economy by employing women farmers and helping thousands of women regain their confidence. After 8 successful years working with helping Haitian women to take care of their mane, I am confident I can also serve the women in my community here in Detroit. My goal is to partner with women who need guidance navigating their hair care routine and actively support the revitalization needs of Detroit.
