Product Name: Burnt Sugar Pomade Protective Humectant Hair Dressing
Price: $10–4oz , $16-8oz
“If your hair loves oils, it’ll be thrilled to meet Burnt Sugar! The nourishing blend of oils, butters, and veggie waxes acts as 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 without blocking pores, and actually sinks into your hair and skin for a long lasting, non-greasy felling. It’s great on braids, imparts shine and moisture to loose hair, and adds luster to locks!”
Burnt Sugar contains: castor oil, soy wax, organic virgin coconut oil, mango seed oil, olive oil, unrefined hempseed oil, cocoa butter, broccoli seed oil, and fragrance.
I ‘big chopped’ my relaxer off, so once my hair grew out long enough to style in two-strand twist-outs I began looking for a product that would allow me to achieve great curl definition, lock in moisture, add some weight to my curls so they hang, help my style last longer, and boast little to no build up.
This product has a warm sweet scent – it almost reminds me of caramel popcorn J Although it is pretty strong at the time of use, it immediately starts to fade. By the next day the scent is only noticeable if a loved one sniffs your hair. After about 2-4 hours it won’t interfere with your perfume or body oil. Scent-wise it’s one of my favorite products!
Please forgive the *glow*
aka sweat! Ha!
I was the planner for this event
– enough said J
Burnt Sugar Pomade has done everything I listed above (in the ‘my experience’ section) and more!
Previously I had been using shea butter for my twist-outs and although I do still alternate from time to time and twist my hair with shea butter and jojoba oil, it tends to build up much faster and leave a heavy film. Burnt Sugar Pomade still allows my hair to breath and surprisingly soaks in almost completely by day 4 of my twist out. That means there is no gunky feeling when it’s time to wash it out. I love that because it keeps my hair feeling moisturized and all I need is a (very very) light spritz of water or Juices and Berries to re-fluff every morning!
While applying this product to my wet hair, the cream colored pomade seemed to set on top of my strands but as I moved on to the next few twists it had already started to absorb. 8+ hours later when I untwisted my hair the pomade had melted into my hair and no visible residue was left behind.
I use it to set my edges for wash-and-go afro puffs and updos, I apply it to my two-strand twists, and I dab it on my ends when they start feeling dry. This is my staple product, for the winter months especially, so the $16 I spend on this pomade and the $6 I spend on a bottle of oil to use on my scalp is all I need product-wise to style my hair and make it through a harsh Indiana winter.

that hat – it was my first J
You only need to use a small amount so the jar will last much longer than it seems. Play around until you figure out the amount of pomade that is right for your hair.
Thank you Oyin Handmade for taking the time to make such a great product! I’m on my third jar now
I don’t wear my twists out as a style too often but I dug up a photo of when I did. The twists were done with Oyin Handmade’s Burnt Sugar Pomade of course…
