So my last post was about sealing your hair, so I feel like this would be a good opportunity to introduce one of my new fav products…Oyin Handmade Sugar Berries Humectant Hair Pomade! It’s an all-vegetable oil pomade that is great for sealing. I bought mine off of CurlMart for $12 for 4 oz. of product.
This stuff smells sooo yummy! It’s super sweet, juicy and fruity. I also recently got the sample size of Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade, which is the exact same thing but their original scent . That one smells really yummy too and is more of a caramel, sugary scent (which I think I actually like better). Either way, your hair will be smellin good!
Here’s what’s inside:
castor oil, soy wax, organic virgin coconut oil, mango seed oil, olive oil, unrefined hempseed oil, cocoa butter, broccoli seed oil, and fragrance.
I was kind of surprised at the consistency when I first got it. When I thought of pomade, what came to mind is something really thick, waxy, hard and would smooth down edges (like Murray’s Hair Dresssing lol) but this definitely dispelled that thought. I guess that was my naivety. But it turns out I love it so it worked out!
This pomade is definitely rich in oil and is a humectant (great for my low porosity hair). It is solid in the jar but as soon as you rub it with your fingers it melts into a thick (but not heavy) oil. It will definitely keep your hair coated and lock in the moisture. You don’t have to reapply this often. Keep this in a cool place or you may have a greasy, liquidy mess!
I’ve been using this on my ends for twist outs and it keeps my ends nice and sealed for days at a time. I do go a little heavy on this since it is pretty light. It ads lots of shine yet it doesn’t feel super greasy or weighted down.
I paired this with Oyin’s Whipped Pudding (on the length of my hair for a twist-out) and I really, really liked the results! Now I have NOT used the pomade with other products yet so I we will have to see how it turns out.
Check out some pics of my week old hair (I re-twisted my hair 2x since I had washed it):
— Have you tried this product? Do you use it in any other way besides sealing?
