Bridgette’s Pick of the Week – Oyin Handmade

Bennu Bliss: Jamyla and her husband, Pierre, co-founders of Oyin Handmade and their sons Osei and Sadat

One of the products included in gift bags for BlackBridalBliss.com’s 4th anniversary fete was Hair Dew samples from Oyin Handmade. Hair Dew is ideal for naturally wavy, curly and/or kinky tresses because its filled with moisturizing goodies like coconut oil and aloe vera but void of harmful ingredients like petroleum and paraffin. I’m currently transitioning and I’ve been relaxer-free for eight months so my strands yearn for hydration and a yummy scent to boot. All of Oyin’s products are green-friendly and founder Jamyla Bennu and her husband Pierre pride themselves in this. What I’m really feeling most about Oyin Handmade isn’t even their growing line of products — although they all seem fab and I can’t wait to try more — but rather that the couple behind this growing Baltimore-based company is so freakin’ fly.

ATTENTION: Brides with a short a ‘do often want to rock a hair accessory for their strut down the aisle, too. However, most bridal magazines would lead us to believe all brides should wear their hair shoulder length or longer. This is frustrating, so I was beyond happy to see how Oscar winner and all-around fly girl Lupita Nyong’o wore her gold and diamond Fred Leighton headband with her princess Prada gown recently on the red carpet.
