Jamyla, Owner of Oyin Handmade
This is a Twitpic from my boss, Jamyla. She's one of those women that has a ton of hair, but wears it back all of the time. This is completely expected in her line of work. So, I have to say that I was FLOORED when I saw that she posted this pic of herself in the Oyin Store. Look at all of that hair!!!
Many people don't know that Jamyla had locs, and combed them out. She then just let her hair do its own thing. She is a DIY girl, she relies on no one for her hair. This is pretty evident since you already know that she is head mixtress and owner of Oyin! I'm trying to think of a way for her to reveal her regimen for her hair. An interview, maybe?
I always tell her that her hair is crazy gorgeous! She's a very humble and modest lady (with an infectious laugh, mind you) so she giggles away and keeps it moving. This is just a quick reminder that patience and nourishment can pay off!
Don't forget to check out the Oyin Handmade Blog for updates, new product announcements and banter from the super couple (her other half, Pierre also owns Oyin and is a crazy good film maker and artist. Check out some of his productions at www.youtube.com/exittheapple)! Their newest podcast will include the winners of the Oyin/NaturallyScandalous contest!!! Thanks so much for all of you who entered!
