As we all know, I keep my hair in two-strand twists about 80% of the time, out of sheer convenience. A few days before my fortnightly washing, I unravel my twists and wear it up in a high bun or some kind of updo. But considering the results of these next two products, I might have to incorporate more styles to show it off!
I heard the buzz about Oyin Handmade’s newest addition, boing! I had not bought any new products in a quite a few months and knew that anything Oyin is worth a try! Seriously, they are one of the best, natural lines for hair out there! This time I decided to try out the online store, Curlmart. They were having a 20% off promo. I was impressed with the turnaround, I placed my order on early Wednesday (about a month ago), chose the cheapest USPS shipping, and my merchandise was in my mailbox by the Friday! I ordered the 4 oz. boing! and the 4 oz. Burnt Sugar Pomade (BSP).
Sidenote: Uhm…..I cannot believe I have not given the Burnt Sugar Pomade its proper homage, a full review! This is my stuck-on-a-deserted-island-must-have-product!
Anyway, boing! is described as an ‘all-in-one coil styler’. It is supposed to define and moisturize all in one step. Typically I use Whipped Pudding as a moisturizer and Shine & Define as a styler, then add BSP to seal and some extra hold.
Here’s what the product looks like….
It’s quite creamy and not too thick. It is similar in texture to the Shine & Define. It’s smooth and melted quickly into my hair. So after washing and detangling, I ONLY added boing! to my wet/damp hair, then added the BSP on top. Two-strand twists all over.
This was the result!
Look at the sheen! And all I did for the following week and a half, I just sprayed my hair with Frank Juice and some extra virgin coconut oil from Trader Joe’s on my ends.
When it was time to unravel, I added some more coconut oil on my fingertips. And this is what I got!!
The most defined, tightest, smoothest twistout ever!! And very little frizz! I was in love! I usually don’t further separate my twistout and over the next few day, it still had less frizz and maintained its shape.
boing! has just sprung to the top of the class. I will be using this almost exclusively for the next few months. I kept my hair quite moisturize even on very cold days. What I also liked about it, that because it is not super dense, those with a looser hair texture, may find this product really nice too!
A few more pictures!
This product is available on Oyin’s website as well as Curlmart. I am pretty sure that both of these sites will have some kind of Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal so I would definitely recommend adding this to your cart!

Your hair looks great!!!
Thanks! I really like this combo!! 🙂
If my hair was loose, I’d DEFINITELY give Boing a try! I remember using the BSP, and it made my hair so moisturized (and it smells so good, too)!
Yes, they came out with a really great product!! It does not really have a pronounced smell, but I’ve been getting some amazing twistouts!!
I love the smell of OYIN products.
They smell AMAZING!
Love it, your hair looks really nice and soft, love the twist out look.
Thanks! It was really soft. I think they just started selling Oyin products on Ariapita Avenue.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I don’t think you need too much other products with it!
