Product Review: Oyin Handmade Burnt Sugar Pomade

Oyin Handmade

Burnt Sugar Hair Pomade

4 oz, $10 or 8 oz, $16



I picked up a sample size of this from a product swap.  I am not a regular pomade user so I was not hunting for it, however I am a fan of other products made by the manufacturer so I wanted to try it out.  The product smells delightfully sweet and delicious like caramel frosting, very tempting to try a taste (lol).  The product is made of vegetable oils, butters and waxes that nourish, soften hair while imparting a light shine.

I used the product to slick back the edges of my hair while transforming an old twist-out into a puff.  I also used a little on my sons hair to create some nice waves.

5 Things I Liked:

  1. The pomade is non-sticky or gummy.  While firm in the container it is soft enough to scoop out with a fingertip and glides on smooth without leaving a film on your finger.
  2. It did a great job of slicking back my edges with minimal effort or brushing.  Unlike gel it does not leave my hair crunchy and hard.
  3. It imparts a subtle shine and softness without the greasy look/feel.
  4. A little bit goes a long way.  I used less than a dime-sized amount by just dipping my fingertip in and that was enough for my entire hair line front and back.
  5. It a nice natural product that contains no questionable additives.

A co-worker of mine with loose curly hair who wears her hair flat-ironed came to me looking for something to help tame her fine hair fly-aways that was non-greasy and didn’t make her hair hard or sticky.  I [begrudgingly] brought in the Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade I scored just a week earlier (quietly hoping she would hate it).  She immediately opened the jar, slid a little on her hair and fell in love *sigh*.  I let her keep the product as it was the answer to her prayers.  Interestingly enough I gave her the sample size back in January and she is still using it.
