Hello fabulous fellow naturals!

I bring to you today a product review from oyin handmade.  The products I will be speaking of today are....the Whipped pudding and the hair dew.  So, lets get right to it shall we:


They say:

" head to toe goodness!

Velvety smooth on the skin, rich, and moisturizing on the hair.  This luxurious natural cream blends botanical butters and oils with aloe Vera gel and pure spring water for lightness& penetration.  Great on hair from scalp to ends as a creamy hair dressing, styling pomade, or deep conditioning treatment utterly decent as deep moisture for dry skin.  As with all oyin products whipped pudding is handmade fresh with love, using natural and organic ingredients & no fillers ever! best if used within six months refrigerate for longer term storage.  To add your own scent or soften for use after refrigeration , nuke for 3-5 seconds and stir.


Purified Water, unrefined Shea Butter, Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Cocoa Butter, Castor oil, Coconut oil, Sweet Almond oil, olive oil, Vegetable emulsifier, beeswax, Palm Stearic Acid, vegetable glycerine, honey, optiphen (preservative), fragrance

I say:

I love the consistency of this product.  The smell is OK , because I have sinus issues strong scents are usually a deal breaker for me.  This does indeed have a chocolate like scent which is not strong, but I'm not head over heels in love with the scent either.  But, it is bearable.  I love that it is 100% natural and that fillers are not used. It's protein, paraben and silicone free.   I also looove that it is multi purpose just as they state on their label it can be used for many things , skin, pre poo treatments, sealant for our hair and as  secondary moisturizer.  It test at a pH of 4 which is great, love that!  The price isn't that bad.  The customer service was great, the turn around time was great as well, I actually received it fairly quick.  The shipping cost was good , cheaper than some others I've ordered from and the packaging was also good.

Now......, do I like it for my hair.... not so much, it really didn't do much for my tresses. I've tried it both while wearing my fro and while wearing my hair roller set.  When applied to my fro, once again it did nothing special ( so, far my Qhemet Biologics Amla& olive heavy cream, is winning over all for my fro moisturizers)
As for using it in my roller set hair it was a bit to heavy, it weighed my hair down.  I didn't notice a lot of shine from this product either.  On my daughters hair however...stellar! My oldest natural has 4b hair which needs lots of moisture the whipped pudding does soooo well in her hair, I love it.  It penetrates right in ,( the QB sits on top of her hair it does not penetrate at all in her hair).  The whipped pudding is one of her staple products and is a for sure keeper.  My middle daughter has texlaxed hair ( still working on her, lol)  this also does well in her hair.  Lastly, my youngest daughters hair has type 3 hair or so and this works wonderfully in her hair.  

So, in all this little number is a definite keeper in our home , just not so much for my hair.  But, a sure thing keeper for my girls hair!  will I be repurchasing ...definitely.  

They say:

This lightweight, quenching lotion refreshes hair like a morning mist! nourishing Castor, olive, and coconut oils combine with aloe Vera and pure water to form a conditioning, non greasy, creamy leave-in that's light enough for every day.  Its great on naked hair immediately after a cleanse, or as a way to reinvigorate tired hair all the way through your hair care cycle.  aaaaahh!


Purified water, Castor oil, olive oil, organic aloe Vera gel, behentrimonium methosulfate ( emulsifier), coconut oil, olive squalane (olea europa), optiphen (preservative), cetyl alcohol, and love!

I say:

LOOOOOVE IT!...very moisturizing, leaves my hair super soft,  great consistency, tested at pH of 6 ( without added aloe juice) , But, I do not like the scent at all (LOL) I don't know what it is the scent just doesn't sit right with me.  Is it unbearable, no I wouldn't say that.  You only need a little, a little goes a long way at least for my hair.  Especially when I wear my hair roller set I use a veeery Little because of the oils in it and my hair is fine It will weigh my hair down and I don't want that for that particular style.  Over all it is a light creme like leave in.  It comes in a great bottle which makes it easy to apply. Once again, as with the whipped pudding the price isn't bad at all, the turn around was really fast which is always a plus, the shipping was fairly priced and the packaging was great.  This leave-in works great in my hair as well as all of my girls hair.  Will I repurchase...yes indeed! Even though I'm not fond of the scent, like I stated its not unbearable and because the product works great in my hair its well worth the repurchase!

There you have it , my thoughts on a few of oyin handmades products!

 thanks a bunch for reading! stay true to yourself and remember to stay....naturally fabulous!

Hmm, I remember trying Oyin Handmade after I did my BC. It was okay on my hair. I just love the fact that they're all-natural (and their videos. I was curious about the new Hair Dew. May give it a try once the weather warms up.

Zainab, you're the third hair dew I've read that has had excellent results.

I've heard nothing but good things about it...the consistency, the moisture, the smell (well, not so much for you lol)

I think I'll give this a try.

Unknown said..., that smell :( but other than that I really like it. Keep me posted if you try it.

Thanks for stopping by kay, take care.

#1 - I am ELATED to hear they have worked on their shipping time!!! This was a serious deterrent for me in the past. I am so about to order that Dew, I have the Bee Mine and it is just ok. I also love the fact that Oyin takes paypal and that is perfect cause I don't have to go huntdown my wallet. Ooh, I wonder if that smell is the same as the burnt sugar pomade, that had to grow on me, but I ended up digging it.

Unknown said...

@Tiffany...yes, there shipping time has seemed to have gotten better:) I really like the dew, but not so much the scent, but its not a deal breaker. I can live with the scent. And, I REALLY like it when companies offer paypal as a paying method.

Thanks for stopping by Tiffany, Take care.
