Jahnya Barnett is a inspirational and multi-talented young woman in the beauty industry. Besides the fact that she’s a drummer, vocalist and poet, she is the Founder & CEO of a unisex hair care line called Froition. At the age of 21, Jahnya founded her business and has been making outstanding progress since. The name Froition is a play on the word fruition, which means that something is at the point of fulfillment. Thus, Froition was created for the fulfillment of beautiful hair.
When Jahnya started Froition, things were, and still are, tough yet she saw an opportunity in the natural hair care industry and knew she could still be successful.
“Achievement comes in many different forms. I don’t reject any path that can lead me towards success, but I know I have the ability to be successful and create my own reality. If a path isn’t available to you, create one.”
Froition has been featured by award winning natural hair bloggers and websites including “Kinky Curly Coily Me!”, “College Crownz” and “Back to our Roots”. Jahnya has also has been a requested guest speaker for events organized by Delta Sigma Theta Epsilon Pi Chapter Inc. where she has shared her hair story, discussed issues in the black community and her thoughts on entrepreneurship. Jahnya is an advocate for empowering young black men and women who seek to become entrepreneurs. The overall mission of Froition is to be more than a natural hair care line. It seeks to educate, impact and inspire black men and women to embrace their hair, cultural expression, and their roots.
