Ten years ago, a bad relaxer led a teen girl to launch her own natural hair product company.

Jasmine Lawrence appeared on “The Oprah Show” back in 2007. She told the story of how a bad hair experience encouraged her to never use harsh chemicals again and, eventually, create her own line of natural products. Recently OWN’s “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” caught up with Jasmine to discuss how her business grew.

“This year… EDEN BodyWorks turns 10 years old,” Jasmine says in the above video. “It’s crazy to think we started just in my kitchen and in my basement at home in New Jersey!”

After the “Oprah Show” aired, Jasmine’s products received a lot of attention. “Retailers were interested in carrying the products,” she says. “Initially, it was just Wal-Mart stores, but it grew into Sally’s Beauty Supply Store, into Walgreens, into lots of different local places around the country.”

The company is reportedly worth 2 million dollars, but Jasmine says the money hasn’t changed much in terms of her lifestyle. “I don’t live as if I was a millionaire,” she says with a laugh. “I have a normal phone. I drive a car that’s from 2008 that I’m still making payments on, I’m paying my own college tuition — just normal things so I can have the regular experiences of life.”

Since graduating from Georgia Tech with a degree in computer science, Jasmine has also pursued her childhood interest in robotics. “I did a robotic project where I taught this robot named Simon to have favorite colors. I worked with robotic nurses and robotic dancers to help patients with their physical therapy,” she says. “I love programming and using code and computer science to build things that help people.” Read more from HuffPo.
