    Default Congrats to Oyin Handmade

    Super old NP.com heads will remember when Jamila, founder of Oyin, was an active member here and in fact when she debuted the line. Honestly I don't use any products much anymore so I've not ordered from them in a while (the occasional Funk Butter), but I still follow them on social media to keep tabs.

    They posted an article in Fast Company magazine which highlighted Jamila/Oyin and in the article in mentioned that Oyin is going to be available nationwide in Target soon! How exciting!

    It gives me endless pride to see sistas doin it for themselves from our napptural hair community and having great success!

    YASSSSSS!!!! This is great news! I still use Oyin in my rotation. Recently went back to the Honey Hemp condish as a leave in. Definitely one of my favourite hair care brands ever.

    Wow...I'm on the FC Web site on the regular and completely missed this article. Here it is:

    Congratulations honeychild! (I think that was her user name? NP old-heads help me out)

    I've found my HG products for the most part but I might make a special visit to Target when Oyin rolls out next year.
    It's 2020...do you know where you're going to?

    Love them!

    I've been to their store in Bmore...use their lotion stick from time to time and I rock my Reading is Sexy and Black Nerds Unite t-shirts often. Even bought a few for my nerdy friends.

    Good for them!

    Thats awesome! My how things have changed in the past decade. You now go to your local stores and purchase natural hair products that you once had to order or be located where they were manufactured .
