ThisThatBeauty Reviews: Oyin Handmade

I absolutely love it when a product works according to what is promised. I mean, who doesn’t? Last year Oyin Handmade sent me a few items to try and somehow they slipped through the cracks. The PR person followed up twice (PR, following up is essential!) and I had to dig through my beauty drawers to find the products. Boy, was I happy I did.

The hair care products are what piqued my interest so I jumped in, head first.  I shampooed and conditioned my hair as I usually do. I decided to do a two strand twist because my hair has been liking  it lately.  I then followed with Oyin Handmade Whipped Butter and  Shine & Define Gentle Styling Serum for soft hold.

I sectioned my hair and applied pea sized amounts of the butter to each segment and worked it from roots to ends. I then applied Gentle Styling Serum over the  butter then did my twists.  I let my hair air dry.

The end result, happy hair!  I actually did a dance.  My twists lasted about three days without needing a re-twist and my hair was ridiculously soft. If you’ve seen my afro helmet you will understand why I was impressed. I thought I might have gotten a bit of crunch from the Shine & Define Gentle Styling serum but it help to define my curls without crunchiness, just as promised . These two products delivered superior moisture to my hair without a hint of crunchiness and no greasy residue.  On day four for a retwist I spritzed each small section of hair  with water and used a bit of the Shine & Define Gentle Styling serum for the twists. The results was just as great as day one.
