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!!
