This one’s for the luvahs…those that understand the enticing nature of a better than average product that smells so divine, you just might catch yourself sniffing it in the quiet corners of your boudoir. This one’s for those that are often labeled ‘PJ’s’ & dole out love notes to some of their favorite jars of…pomade.
Stay with Me…
This one’s also for those who enjoy discovering and supporting small owned business that continue to get it right, not simply with their customer service but with the quality of their products. I’ve been a customer of Oyin Handmade for a few years now and have yet to find a negative quibble when it comes to their products.
Many goodies from their line are unique in that many of them are multi-purpose, and function great as either a hair styler or body moisturizer. The new Hair Dew leave-in conditioner sets itself up as a light, yet creamy leave-in condish that’s also safe to use on body (if you so choose).
Because of all the incredible reviews on Youtube & across the hair boards, I invested in a larger 16 oz size before settling down and trying. Now, before even applying as a styler…I have to confess to smelling…and sniffing….and feeling as if I hit pay dirt with this leave-in. Have you guys tried the Burnt Sugar Pomade? Chile….if you cradled that small jar in the crooks of your arm because of the warm goodness smell, please be advised that this is the exact same situ-mication.
The last ‘light’ yet creamy leave-in condish that graced these strands was Giovanni Direct leave-in, a still favorite but mostly during the warmer months. The Hair Dew has simple ingredients (water, castor oil, olive oil, aloe vera gel, coconut oil are the top few..), yet manages to moisturize and easily detangle my hair (while using a wide toothed comb).
This woman tried her best NOT to be heavy handed…but C’mon Son! The smell did me over, and after only two or so applications, I’m already looking to purchase another jar. Because it’s non greasy, I’ve been able to avoid those awkward ‘grease spot’ hair stains that most hair products leave in their wake. These past few weeks I’ve been wearing two-strand twists, a style that requires constant moisture if you want to prolong the style as well as wear a knock em out twist-out later on. This did a great job in sealing in moisture for the usual 7-day post wash runs.
Ideally, I’d see myself using this more so in the Spring/Summer months rather than Winter unless I were to use a heavier styler underneath. If you have a TWA, hair that’s short and needs daily moisture, give this a try. Works nicely on wet or dry hair that needs a moisture pick-me up… and even though I was a tad heavy handed ( a vice I’m working on…) a little bit gets the job done if you’re sectioning and distributing the product evenly.
Right now I’m working on using it as a mid-week refresher for my twists because of the ‘dry nest’ situation & will report back results!
*Now, I know I may be late to the game by trying this months after it’s come out, but what have been your experiences with the Hair Dew?*
