Oyin Handmade Hair Dew, new container and now available in a 33 oz!
QB stands for Qhemet Biologics, a product formulated for dry, coarse (and fine) textured hair, from relaxed to transitioning to fully natural and locs. The founder of that line, I have never seen a picture of. But after much praise for her products, I dipped my toe in the pot via the Castor and Moringa Softening Serum and the Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee. Both I love. And that Ghee is definitely staying in my rotation. My new winning combo for dry or wet twists is coconut oil and CTDG. Love it! The ghee melts tangles away, adds sheen, smells like chocolate (YUM!), and a little goes a long way. I am eager to try other products by QB, including the Burdock Root Butter Cream and perhaps their Amla Oil Nourishing Pomade or the Tea Tree Grapeseed Pomade.
The thing is, I have been in search for some holy grail products. After realizing I had a lot of products, but only liked truly liked five of them (see below), I decided to be honest with myself:
- I don't always feel like being a mixstress. I'll mix up some aloe vera juice, water and tea tree essential oil for moisture. I may whip up some Kimmaytube Leave-In every now and then. Other than that, I don't like to mix up products too much. I prefer to buy ready made quality products. Preferably, all natural. I know many naturals will say going all natural with your products is not necessary to maintain healthy, natural hair. But it is what I prefer.
- Having online holy grails curbs my PJ'ism. Odd as it is, when my go-to products are only or mainly available only online and in limited physical locations, I am less likely to buy more than I need or to buy on a whim. I don't like to order products off line but every so often. So having holy grail products online helps me spend money more wisely.
Final note: Oyin Handmade recently did a makeover of their products. (The containers, not the ingredients). Above is a picture of the Oyin Handmade Hair Dew, in it's new container. And it is now available in a 33 oz. Let the church say amen. I love the Hair Dew. My next OH purchase, I just might be getting both the Hair Dew and the Honey Hemp in the 33 oz containers. Watch me!
And there you have it, my current holy grail products: Oyin Handmade, Qhemet Biologics, Shea Moisture, and Yes to Cucumbers. (Also, the Kimmaytube Leave-In, made with OHHH, when I feel like mixing up).
