CENTER OF ATTENTION: Oyin Whipped Pudding
purified water; unrefined shea butter; organic aloe vera gel; cocoa butter; castor oil; coconut oil; sweet almond & olive oils; vegetable emulsifier; beeswax; palm stearic acid; vegetable glycerin; honey; optiphen (preservative); fragrance
WHAT IT IS:
I got this 2 ounce jar of Whipped Pudding as part of the 4-piece hair care sampler. It is a thick cream made up my four favorite ingredients shea butter, coconut oil, castor oil and aloe vera gel. This can be used for hair and for skin. I just used it for my hair.
WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT:
I will start with the smell. It smells like chocolate. Puts me in the mind of devil's food cake. Yummy goodness...but, do I really want my hair to smell like that? My jar had what I would call a heavy scent, but after I left the top off for a few hours, the smell has lightened up somewhat.
This is a very thick cream and it just soaked into my dry hair. I was looking for something that would do just that since my hair has a tendency to be on the dry side. I used this product in conjunction with the Burnt Sugar Pomade and the Shine & Define Serum and LOVED what I saw in the mirror. My hair was shiny and moisturized, but not greasy looking. It looked healthy. My curl pattern was elongated into gentle waves. I also got a few inches of length. I had to let this emulsify in my hands before I put it on my hair as it is like melted plastic for lack of a better term. Maybe paste-like would be better to describe it. I also have used the Whipped Pudding and some water to smooth back my hair for a ponytail/puff and liked the results I got.
WHAT I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT IT:
I did not mind the smell of this product on its own, but when I used it in conjunction with the Burnt Sugar Pomade and the Shine & Define Serum I really wanted to throw up. I wish that this product was offered unscented then I could have to choice to add my own fragrance or not.
WOULD I REPURCHASE:
I really think that I would repurchase this product even with the smell. I like how it worked in conjunction with the other two above mentioned products and how my hair looked. I would love to have this for use in the winter months.
This product was purchased with my own money for my own personal usage. I am not affiliated with this company.
