Product Review: Oyin Handmade Shine and Define
This past Monday night I re-twisted my hair using Oyin Handmade Shine and Define. This was a gift from my sister Auset and this was my first time using it.
Ingredients: Purified water, Organic flax seeds, Organic aloe vera gel, Sea Vegetable Complex, Coconut Oil, Castor, unrefined shea butter, organic raw honey, Vegetable Glycerine, Palm Stearic Acid, Vegetable Emulsifying Wax, fruit pectin, xanthan gum, destrose, Optiphen (preservative) citrus essential oils, fragrance
Here is how I used it:
1. I took random sections of my hair and applied the Shine and Define along the entire section and concentrated on the ends. I then put in medium size twists.
2. I kept the twists in for a day.
3. I took the twists down and wore the hair out on Wednesday.
1. The smell was simply wonderful. I loved it.
2. I like that the consistency was great.
3. It did not give my hair a stiff or weird hold.
4. Great ingredients
5. No build-up.
1. I actually didn't think it defined that well.
2. I didn't think the shine was that great.
For the product, to be called "Shine and Define" I was not that impressed with the shine or the definition. So, I am still on the fence about this product. I think I am going to try using it with a different method. Maybe on damp hair...
This was my hair after I took the twists down and wore it out.
