I have sung the praises about products from Oyin Handmade. They have a fantastic collection for women how have naturally kinky/curly/coily hair. But there is one that truly has my heart and I will buy for the rest of time! Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade.
First of all, this smells every bit as good as it looks! Amazing!! I have been so tempted to eat this thing! I actually think that it has quite a pronounced scent although it has been described as subtle.
Anyway, this is an all-natural, vegetable-based hair pomade, that has a very thick, almost grease-like consistency. Like old-school, back in the day hair grease. And to the touch, it is grainy, as if there is actual brown sugar mixed in it. But that quickly melts away once you warm it up in your palms.
I use this as my last step when I am putting in my two-strand twists or smoothing my edges, to seal in moisture and it gives a wonderful shine. This does not contain beeswax, but it does contain candelilla wax, so those with locs may or may not have issues with that. I love it! Luv it! It helps keep my twists in for well over a week and when I take them down, it helps keep down the frizz.
I usually buy this in the largest size of 8 oz., which lasts a few months (about 3-4 months) and recently, Oyin released a new scent, Sugar Berries Pomade.
So check this out on Oyin’s website! This gets all my votes!! This is my holy grail product! Check them out at oyinhandmade.com
