Felix Dimitrakis, 22, said he worked at the factory for more than ten hours a day before the pandemic. The man had a low salary, and also received a number of injuries due to physical activity associated with the profession. “My work was hard not only physically, but also mentally. I woke up at five in the morning and went to the factory every day. And I was returning home so late that I did not even have the strength to go out and meet someone, "the Australian admitted.
Dimitrakis has been working on creating his own business for about two years. After being fired, the hero of the material decided to bring his old idea to life and open his own brand. Noticing a shortage in the market for hair care products, the entrepreneur launched the Malia Hair cosmetics brand.

They gave their products to friends and relatives to try to make sure of their quality. “I spent my free time and weekends researching and talking with numerous hair specialists to gain as much knowledge as possible,” said Dimitrakis.
In July, the couple launched their first product, a watermelon-scented hair mask for 50 dollars (four thousand rubles). The Australian added that the main impetus in promoting their brand was advertising on the page of the influential blogger Skye Wheatley, which has 629 thousand followers on Instagram.
Since the founding of the brand, the couple has earned 350 thousand dollars (28 million rubles). “After the first week of work, we reached a full sale and received an income of $ 30 thousand (2.4 million rubles), and after three months Malia Hair collected 40 thousand subscribers and Instagram, the site was filled with a bunch of reviews and five-star ratings,” - shared entrepreneur.
According to the spouses, they are very pleased with their success and now hope to release two more products in the new year.
