Oyin Handmade Review

Oyin Hair Dew and Oyin Burnt sugar pomade Review!!!

Hello everyone I hope you all had amazing holidays! I'm so excited to update/review two new products for you. During black Friday CurlMart was having a sale on Oyin products, and I have really wanted to try two imparticular.

Oyin Hair Hew: This moisturizer is great! It is giving my Shea moisture curl and style mike a run for its money. The hair dew is protein and glycerin free so its perfects for those who are protein sensitive. It also has an incredible sugar cookie smell. I love the smell, but some of you may not; I tried it on my mom and she wasn't crazy about it. The texture of it was like your typical moisturizer, like lotion. I also went to Oyin's website and realized that the Hair Dew can be purchased in a 33oz for 34.00! and being that this is a all natural product that's a great deal! This definitely has a possibility of becoming a staple.
Ingredients: purified water, castor oil, olive oil, organic aloe vera gel, behentrimonium methosulfate (emulsifier), coconut oil, olive squalane, optiphen (preservative), cetyl alcohol, fragrance, and love!

Oyin burt sugar pomade: O.M.G. I LOVE THIS STUFF! For all of you that love braid outs and twist outs you need this pomade! For the past month or so I have been using this to seal after applying a moisturizer for my braid outs. This product has a slight hold which is just enough to keep my pattern in place. It also gives the hair a healthy sheen. I even used this to slick back my edges, it wasn't as good as eco but it got the job done. The texture of this product is like a old school hair grease, but once you rub it into your hands it turns into a oil. And like the Hair Dew it smells like sugar cookies and vanilla:) For those that don't like the sugary sent the pomade also comes in a berry scent. I'm definitively going to make this a fall/winter staple.
Ingredients: Castor oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, organic virgin coconut oil, mango seed oil, olive oil, unrefined hempseed oil, candelilla wax, cocoa butter, broccoli seed oil, fragrance... and love! 

I am very satisfied with my Oyin purchase and would buy these products again. I love that Oyin is a black owned business and that they use great ingredients. There are other products in the line that I would love to try but I'm good for now.

Stay tuned for more updates,
