Oyin's Burnt Sugar Pomade


$10/4oz or $16/8oz

Product Description: Does your hair love oils? Our "Burnt Sugar" Pomade is a nourishing all-vegetable pomade and styling product named for the uniquely translucent, shimmery quality of warm, homemade caramel.

Similar in texture to an old school 'hair grease,' This blend of oils, butters, and veggie waxes acts as a humectant and protectant for hair, increasing shine to a high glossy sheen and locking in moisture. It's packed with essential fatty acids to nourish scalp, and actually sinks into your hair and skin for a long lasting, non-greasy feeling. It's great for braids, imparts shine and moisture to loose hair, brushes nicely into the hairline for a glossy finish, and adds luster to locks!

Contains virgin coconut cream, mango oil, and hempseed oil in a base of nourishing castor oil. Lightly fragranced with a subtly sweet fragrance that is appropriate for both men and women.

My Experience: OMG. I've been using it in place of shea butter to braid my hair at night. It smells like syrupy pancakes, and looks nothing like the pic above. It's beige in color and resembles shea... it literally looks like an old school pomade. If you're into sweet smells, you'll love this, plus it lingers! You'll literally want to eat your hair, lol.

I scoop out a teeny bit and apply it to each section prior to braiding (dry hair)-- it's solid at room temp but melts as soon as it's in your hands. I also add a little extra to the ends before rolling. In the morning when I release the braids, my hair is soft, yet strong, and ridiculously shiny. This is a must try! It's great for softening, for shine, for hold, for smoothing edges, and for thickening (castor oil). BSP is perfect for twist-outs, braid-outs, puffs, buns, and Twist-n-Curls!

Bottom Line: This is an amazing product! I'm definitely an official member of team Oyin now. Remember that a little bit of this stuff goes a looooong way, and that as long as you use it in moderation, greasiness is never an issue. Try it and report back!
