Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade
Castor oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, organic virgin coconut oil, mango seed oil, olive oil, unrefined hempseed oil, cocoa butter, broccoli seed oil, fragrance and love
Cost: 4oz $10, 8oz $16
On wet hair I use it slick my edges down and the front on my hair down. This product so far is the only pomade that has been able to tame my frizzies in the front. The smell is intoxicating, like pancakes with sugar. It only takes a smidgen of product and one jar will last you for a long time. It is very thick so it might be wise to warm it up a little by rubbing your palms together with the product in between them. I really like thick products and this one is great!
The Oyin Handmade store is 35 minutes away from me, so it is very convenient to be able to go to the store to avoid shipping costs and wait times. However, I have heard that their wait times for shipping products can be 2-3 weeks. If I didn't live near the Oyin store, perhaps this might be a problem for me. You can always order from Curlmart.com, but the product will not be as fresh as getting it straight from Oyin. I know that handmade products may take a while to ship, due to everything being made fresh. But I have seen other reviews where Oyin's customer service seems questionable in regards to communication issues.
I give it 5/5 stars for my hair. It slicks back my hair like no other, smells great, and I can pick it up from their store on Saturdays from 12-7.
