Okay I’m not to sure about this stuff. I have been playing around with the sample pack for the past week. I have had some success but no OMG or HG moments. I decided to do a flat twist out instead of the Bantu’s because the products are so light which makes me question the hold. The best thing going so far is the smell.
After I use up the rest of the sample pack I plan to do a full review. At this point in my tests, trials, and experiments I think I would only re-purchase the Greg Juice and Honey Hemp Conditioner and order it from Naturally Curly’s Curl Mart for faster delivery.
My flat twist out is okay at the most. It might have been my fault partly because I didn’t seal and stretch my ends by rolling then. The front is defined but the back is a bit on the puffy side. Its not worth taking a picture (actually I can’t find my camera). I plan to try another flat twist out and see how it goes. In the meantime if you are an Oyin user please share your combo’s of the products and success stories. I really just want this stuff to work.
P.S. I will add pix later today once I locate my camera.
I got my Oyin Shine and Define checked out and everything looks good. I must say I am impressed with the customer service now lets keep our fingers crossed this stuff delivers. I plan to do my signature bantu knot out its been a while since I’ve done one. I plan to co-wash as usual. Might do an ACV rinse since I’m trying a new product followed by the Honey Hemp as my leave-in and the S&D as my styler possibly mixed with a bit of the Whipped Pudding then sealing my ends with Greg Juice and Shea Butter (wheew that was a lot). I hope this works because my twistout with the Lustrasilk was not the business.
Its been 3 anxious weeks but low and behold last night my Oyin Sample pack arrived (The same day I got an email that it had been already shipped). It came wrapped so cute they even had some candy in it. I did have to email them to get the full breakdown of the shipping procedures but I will share that some other time.
Still anxious I smelled all of them and everyone who has already reviewed them were right. It smells like dessert for your hair. The only one I didn’t care for was the Whipped Pudding which reminded me off the yellow Cocoa Butter Sticks at Walgreens.
I couldn’t resist spraying my hair with the Greg Juice. It smelled like heaven in a bottle. I will re-purchase this for the smell alone. I used it again this morning to refresh my Eco Styler wash and go and it did an okay job nothing HGish.
All of the containers were filled to the brim except one. The Shine and Define looked like it had already been used. The Whipped Pudding had similar packaging but had a safety seal. The S&D also had a cottage cheesy texture which is a bit questionable. I plan to contact them about it via email. I tried to call but no one answered.
Check out this out! I’ll let you guys judge and please weigh-in if you use the S&D:
I was anxious to try out the products with a twist out put I will hold out. In the meantime I’m still going to do a flat twist out but I will just use Lustrasilk with the Greg Juice and seal my edges and ends with the Whipped Pudding.
Feel free to share your Oyin experiences and stay tuned for a review of the whole line once I get the S&D checked out.
I just ordered the Oyin Handmade Sample pack which includes the Greg Juice, Honey Hemp Condish, Shine and Define, and the Whipped Pudding. Let’s see how long it will take. Oh and after their podcasts (which are hilarious) on their blog they have coupon codes. It never hurts to save a dollar or two fellow pj’s.
