Review: Oyin Handmade Hair Dew

I've had Oyin Handmade's Hair Dew since August or October of 2011 so I've had a good amount of time to really test the product, and I love it. If you haven't noticed already, it's on my HG List. Click the link to check out what else is on the list.

Hair Dew is a light leave-in suitable for daily use. Oyin Handmade compares it to "old school hair moisturizers" but with ingredients that are "actually good for your hair." I agree! The feel isn't as oily as your Luster's Pink Lotion or ORS Olive Oil Moisturizer, though; it is truly a moisturizer. It's glycerin free so most likely will work well in various dew points.

purified water, castor oil, olive oil, organic aloe vera gel, behentrimonium methosulfate (emulsifier), coconut oil, olive squalane, optiphen (preservative), cetyl alcohol, fragrance, and love!

I mainly use this as a refresher for fluffing or moisturizing nightly. I use it as a leave-in also. I have occasionally used it while styling and sealed with Oyin Handmade's Burnt Sugar Pomade. These work very well together and have the same "burnt sugar" fragrance, which I love. Hair Dew also works as a leave-in for wash& go's. I tried it with Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha and was able to get 2nd day hair for the first time with this gel. If you've been following my blog, you know I have been having some difficulty getting this gel to work for me, even with other CJ products. So when it worked with Hair Dew, I was pleasantly surprised.

Oyin Handmade Hair Dew retails for $13 (8.4oz), $20 (16.9oz), and $34 (33oz). It can be purchased at the Oyin Handmade site and store, CurlMart, and other select retailers.

Would I repurchase?: I will definitely be repurchasing as long as the formulation remains the same.

Below is my overall product rating:

Price: 4/5
Packaging: 5/5
Fragrance: 5/5
Performance: 5/5

Overall: 4.75/5
