Oyin Handmade Juices and Berries Nourishing Herbal Leave-In

Oct 24, 2011 - If you read the ingredients of this product, then what it is able to do starts to make sense. The people saying it's not a great moisturiser confuse me. It is mainly water, are you saying water does not moisturise your hair? However, note that it does not contain oils, so the moisture it provides needs to be sealed in. I normally use a medium-thick oil and this works well for me, or a thicker cream/butter sealant in winter. It makes your hair frizzy? Again, it's mostly water! If your hair frizzes up when water gets to it, then this will also make your hair frizzy. Use your gel or whatever you normally use to prevent frizzies. As before, sealing usually sorts me out, although I don't mind a bit of frizz at all. It contains glycerine. In non-humid climates, this may pull moisture out of your hair and leave it feeling dry. Once again, sealing in the moisture prevents this for me. This ingredient also causes the sticky sensation. I don't get this unless I use too much. I love the smell. It is very sweet, but I love it. So, it can be used to moisturise if you seal, refresh a hairstyle if you can seal without messing up your hair and to provide a nice smell. I have never used it to detangle, I don't see why it'd do that well, except for maybe the aloe vera which may close cuticles with its low pH? Anyway, it does its job for me. Yes, you could get the same effects by making your own spritz, but I am lazy and plain water doesn't smell as nice. My hair is 4b/c if it matters. It is also short (just beyond a TWA), low in porosity, high in density and coarse.
