How you helped Terrah Essentials become a reality.
My name is Bhie and I am the Mompreneur behind Terrah Essentials. I was born in Bulacan, Philippines and have worked as a hairstylist for 15 years. I attained a diploma in Cosmetology from Lorraine Beauty Institute (Philippines) before getting my professional licensee in Canada on August 2008. My background has always been in the skin ad hair care industry.
My major influence growing up was my mother. She was a lover of beautiful things and the sole person who taught me , entrepreneurship. Growing up in a 3rd world country, you learn to do a lot of things for yourself and truly make use of your resources. In my country, to succeed in the beauty industry, one had to be an all-around beautician or someone well skilled in hair cutting, perming, hair coloring, hair straightening, hairstyling and make-up services.
In 2003, my family and I immigrated to Canada, the land of opportunities. I began my hairdressing career after I got my Certificate of Qualification from The Ontario College of Trades. Being of service to clients and making them look good and feel good gives me the deepest satisfaction. However, as years passed by, I discovered I am four times at risk of getting the cancer from my exposure to chemicals.
I began making natural soaps and cosmetics exclusively for my family for 2 years before starting Terrah Essentials. Slowly but surely I began using my products at the salon and my clients have witnessed a positive difference to their hair and skin. After noticing a growing interest for natural skin care products, I decided to share Terrah Essentials to people who want a safer, more natural option to feel and look good.
