Oyin Handmade: Round Up and Final Words

Last week my CENTER OF ATTENTION series focused on Oyin Handmade.  I bought, used and reviewed 6 products.  They are:

I have to say that I really liked what the products did and how they made my hair look.  The only thing I did not like was the smell of the product (especially the Burnt Sugar Pomade and the Whipped Pudding).  I used them again last week and the smell had died down somewhat.  So, maybe the smell dissipates if you leave the top off of the jar or just do not use it for a few weeks.  I really liked how my hair looked, so I took the plunge and purchased full-sizes of the Head-to-Toe Honey Wash, Burnt Sugar Pomade, Shine and Define and Whipped Pudding.  I will be getting a full-sized Greg Juice and Honey/Hemp Conditioner at a later date. 

I cannot deny the combination of the Burnt Sugar Pomade and the Shine and Define.   I have to use both to get the look that I want.  The Whipped Pudding is great for reviving my twist out after a few days.  I got 2nd, 3rd and 4th day hair using this combination.  My 3c/4a/4b hair loved these products for twist outs, but not for the wash n' go look.  I think the Shine and Define was too light for my hair and the Burnt Sugar Pomade was not "wet" enough, but together they were great.  The Whipped Pudding was just the thing to catch flyaways and smooth my twists for lasting definition and moisture. 

The Greg Juice is a great herbal leave-in.  It is hands down my favorite natural leave-in.  Gives me soft curls in a no fuss way.  All I have to do after getting out of the shower is spritz my hair with Greg Juice and let the steam from the shower do the rest.  Great hair all day.                

I would suggest that you purchase the samples sizes of these products and see if you like them.  I am glad that I did.  These products are great for natural hair. 

If you have used Oyin Handmade products and love them (or not) let us know.  Share some of your tips and product combinations.  I would love to hear from you.

These products were purchased with my own money for my own personal usage.  I am not affiliated with this company.
