10 Years in Business
Watermans was founded by Gail and Matt waterman, who both suffered for many years with different variations of hair loss problems. In 2012 Watermans was launched and now today we sell a product every 30 seconds across our network of distributors around the globe. The companies main focus is making products that actually help others in some way by using the finest ingredients and putting customer results first before profits.
They donate their hair growth shampoo called ‘Grow Me’ to chemo wards across the UK and other Watermans products to the NHS and Ukraine, also supporting many grassroots and football teams across the country along the way. Matt & Gail Waterman pride themselves on giving back to the community or when someone or charity needs that helping hand.
Watermans is ran by 99% Women 'Girl Power" and 50% owned by a women of colour.
Gail, a former hairdresser and salon owner who has had a background in the hair industry for over 32 years and Matt, a marketing expert, knew what high salon standard needed to be achieved when producing this product.
The development journey began in 2012 which was then tested by both of them and then brought into the salon environment to test on Gail's salon customers where there were a range of different hair types, textures and hair problems to experiment on and to substantiate the efficacy of their products.
DONATING STOCK TO NHS CHEMO WARDS
At Watermans, we believe in spreading good karma and helping others in any way we can. Since the company was started by Gail and Matt Waterman, we have been donating our hair growth products to chemotherapy wards both in person and by mail. We believe that everyone deserves to feel their best, and we are proud to play a small role in helping those who are going through a tough time.
