Having already won several industry awards for her haircare products, Kameese said investment from a dragon would be a 'game-changer' for her business.

During her pitch she revealed her range was inspired by her daughter, explaining: 'I wanted her to know from her earliest memory that her hair was magnificent, so it didn't need to be straightened to fit into a linear beauty ideal.

'However my daughter had eczema, so caring for her hair presented me with several challenges. What I was seeking was a high performance product driven by innovation and backed by evidence.'

Spotting a gap in the market, Kameese launched Nylah in March 2018 and has since sold more 3,000 units and is in high level talks with Superdrug, having turned down a listing with Holland and Barrett.

'I have done all of this without working capital whilst working part time and having to raise two small children,' she added.

Gallery: 14 Steve Jobs Quotes That Offered Great Advice For Entrepreneurs (Entrepreneur)

Steve Jobs holding a phone: Steve Jobs, who died in 2011, remains one of the most quoted people in modern history. And why not? He lead several companies, most notably Apple, which revolutionized personal computers, communications, and both the music and film industries.  Plus, man, could Jobs talk. When people talk about how chief executives need communication skills, Jobs should be Exhibit A. Just Google “Steve Jobs” and you can spend a day reading interviews or watching videos of his many speeches.  Of course, his quotes are everywhere, too. So in creating this list we looked specifically for quotes that can inspire or advise entrepreneurs. We also sought quotes that may not be quite as famous, such as the ones revealed this year by Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi.  A frequent critique of any list such as this, or even some of Jobs speeches, is that “not everyone can be Steve Jobs.” These miss the point. If your business is far from cutting-edge technology – maybe you run a cupcake bakery or an internet marketing company – that doesn’t mean that Jobs’ experiences and lessons don’t apply. We can’t all be William Shakespeare or Vince Lombardi, either, but that doesn’t stop people from drawing lessons from what they had to say.  Plus, with the well-received “Steve Jobs” film hitting cable, he is back on the minds of many people. And a whole new generation of young people are getting exposed to his story.  You may notice a theme of shaking up the status quo runs through many of these quotes. That’s as it should be. You didn’t become an entrepreneur – or aspire to be one - because you wanted to follow the herd. Entrepreneurship isn’t the arena for the followers.   

'It is a business with a huge amount of potential but I haven't been able to maximise the opportunity because of constraints with finances,' she said.

She added that another packaging concept is imminent, after Deborah Meaden pointed out it wasn't immediately obvious her products cater to afro and textured hair.

Kameese admitted there is another company producing a similar range which recently received investment, but insisted the market is 'big enough for us to be quite lucrative'.

'All of our sales have been organic so our growth to date is pretty much me championing the brand. The first time I approached a buyer cold, Holland and Barrett, they wanted the product, they saw the potential in it,' she explained.

Fact check: Biden's speech had an estimated 26.9 million viewers

  Fact check: Biden's speech had an estimated 26.9 million viewers The president’s first address to Congress had 26.9 million viewers, not 11.6 million as claimed in a social media post.An April 29 Facebook post from James T. Harris, a conservative radio host and social media personality, lists television ratings for five past presidential addresses — four from former President Donald Trump and one from Biden. The post says Biden’s address to Congress had only 11.6 million viewers, compared to 37.2 million viewers for Trump’s 2020 State of the Union speech.

'I turned them down - it was a very difficult decision but I felt that they didn't understand the market but also they really wanted to reduce my RRP [recommended retail price], which I thought was risk heavy for myself and it was such an early stage in my business that I wasn't willing to take that risk.

'And several months later I entered into the Superdrug open house competition and they offered me to list with them.'

But her determined pitch wasn't enough to convince all but one of the dragons, with Deborah telling Kameese she didn't feel she was 'there yet' with her brand.

But her hope was restored when Sara said her business could be worth the quarter of a million pounds she envisaged with her on board.

'I think you've got some real drive and determination and it's not an area of the market I'm familiar with - but I believe in you,' she told an emotional Kameese.

'In my eyes you've done the really difficult bit, and so I'm willing to make you an offer because I would really like to back another "mumpreneur" really going places.'

Sara offered to reduce her 40 per cent stake in the business to 30 if she got her money back within the first 18 months, adding: 'That feels like a way I could make that work, potentially for you and for me.'

It's been a week since the emotional moment and the family is starting to mend old wounds.

Thrilled Kameese accepted her 'brilliant' offer and promised to make Sara proud.

Upon leaving the den, she said: 'It's tough raising children and raising a brand, it's a delicate balance, but we can do it, we're mums, we can do it.'

Viewers welled up at home, with one tweeting: 'Oh FFS now I'm balling at @BBCDragonsDen because @SaraDaviesCC has just made Cam's dreams come true. I'm done for tonight.'

Another wrote: 'Absolutely well done Kam @Nylah_UK a very emotional #dragonsden great product. Good luck.'

And one tweeted: 'Brought bloomin' tears to my eyes there, but I'm glad you saw the potential and I'm sure with your help Kam will dominate the market #dragonsden.'

Dragon's Den airs Thursdays at 8pm on BBC One.
