HISTORY

Ladine founded 1987
Ladine was founded in 1987 by Maria Laughland. It all began with her vision to create hair care equality between races by promoting the creation and subsequent growth of a professional Black hairdressing industry in South Africa. From the beginning, the objective of the company was to offer a truly professional Afro hairdressing product range.

Relaxertec Launch March 1996
In the quest to find the best Relaxer that offered fast, effective, straight results with less irritation Ladine developed and launched the first Lithium Hydroxide relaxer on the market. The Smooth and Gentle Relaxertec range is still regarded as the best relaxer on the market.

ASAP launch August 2008
The need for a product that calmed and stopped the irritation of chemicals on the scalp was long overdue after decades of chemicals used in hairdressing. Ladine was the first to develop and patent a chemical neutralizer that stops the burn “As Soon As Possible”. Since then Ladine has created even more unique products such as the Nutri E hair and scalp conditioner which softens and detangles the hair and the Brazil Nut Oil which gives a silky and natural feeling.
