Burnt Sugar Pomade – by Oyin Handmade
Within the last couple of years, I have become really enthusiastic about haircare. I have really thick, coarse hair which is prone to dryness, and when I first went natural, I had been looking high and low for a moisturizer that would remedy that problem.
Whether my hair is in two-strand twists, a twist-out, or an afro, I always get the same compliments when I’m out and about: “It looks so healthy and shiny!” When people feel my hair, some are pleasantly surprised to discover that it’s soft. And, I always get the same question: “What do you use on your hair?” I figured it wouldn’t be be fair to keep all the hair and beauty secrets to myself! So, let me introduce some and re-acquaint others to Oyin Handmade’s Burnt Sugar Pomade.
Some time ago, I began using this gem. Its ingredients are all-natural and the pomade adds shine and moisture to hair prone to dryness. I have been using this pomade for almost a year, and it never fails me. It always provides the right amount of moisture and great shine! Although it’s called a “pomade,” it is not super heavy, which is important, because who wants to feel like they have product in their hair? Another reason why I love the pomade is because it smells delicious: like warm vanilla or a sugar cookie.
I use the pomade on wet and dry hair when styling; to rejuvenate my dry twists, and to moisturize my afro. You can also moisturize your scalp, if that’s a problem area for you, because it doesn’t clog the pores! (at least in my experience) The pomade goes a long way, too. I have the largest size (8oz.), and after about 9 months of consistent use, I am just now having to buy another one.
How much is it?: $10 for 4oz.; $16 for 8oz.
Where can I get it from?: Oyin’s site – www.oyinhandmade.com
