Oyin's Burnt Sugar Pomade

Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade— $10/4oz or $16/8oz

Product Description: Does your hair love oils? Our “Burnt Sugar” Pomade is a nourishing all-vegetable pomade and styling product named for the uniquely translucent, shimmery quality of warm, homemade caramel.
Similar in texture to an old school ‘hair grease,’ This blend of oils, butters, and veggie waxes acts as a 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, and actually sinks into your hair and skin for a long lasting, non-greasy feeling. It’s great for braids, imparts shine and moisture to loose hair, brushes nicely into the hairline for a glossy finish, and adds luster to locks!
Contains virgin coconut cream, mango oil, and hempseed oil in a base of nourishing castor oil. Lightly fragranced with a subtly sweet fragrance that is appropriate for both men and women.

Purchase from: or

Ingredients: castor oil, hydrogenated soybean oil, organic virgin coconut oil,mango seed oil, unrefined hempseed oil, cocoa butter, broccoli seed oil, fragrance, & love

My Experience: OMG. I’ve been using it in place of shea butter to braid my hair at night. It smells like syrupy pancakes, and looks nothing like the pic above. It’s beige in color and resembles shea… it literally looks like an old school pomade. If you’re into sweet smells, you’ll love this, plus it lingers! You’ll literally want to eat your hair, lol.

I scoop out a teeny bit and apply it to each section prior to braiding (dry hair)– it’s solid at room temp but melts as soon as it’s in your hands. I also add a little extra to the ends before rolling. In the morning when I release the braids, my hair is soft, yet strong, and ridiculously shiny. This is a must try! It’s great for softening, for shine, for hold, for smoothing edges, and for thickening (castor oil). BSP is perfect for twist-outs, braid-outs, puffs, buns, and Twist-n-Curls!

Bottom Line: This is an amazing product! I’m definitely an official member of team Oyin now. Remember that a little bit of this stuff goes a looooong way, and that as long as you use it in moderation, greasiness is never an issue. Try it and report back!

    I used this last night and it made my hair so soft and well defined loved it!!

  • Melanie says:

    Love It! This smooths my edges like nothing else. I like the smell. It starts out strong but mellows out a bit. This is a keeper for me.

    I looove this stuff, it makes my hair so soft. I haven't used it in ages because of the grittiness in my jar, and trying to press the gritty bits out before putting it in my hair can be very annoying. BUT… even if I don't get all of them out, they melt into my hair anyway. And the smell is incredible; it doesn't even bother my allergies, which is a big issue. It also definitely lingers, because my dancers have asked me at practice the day after I've done my hair why I smell like chocolate or waffles! 🙂

    I do the same as luvmylocs, I LOVE this stuff to do my pony puffs. The smell is sooo sweet, I like the way it lingers. It makes my hair sooo soft. I have yet to try it for a twist out. But I will.

  • luvmylocs says:

    i use this for smoothing edges in a puff or up-do. i totally love the scent and get many compliments on it when i wear it out. i don't use it everyday so it lasts awhile.

    Mine just came in yesterday. I found it too be entirely too strong in smell and I love me some sweet stuff too. I used it last night after washing and conditioning and this morning my hair is actually not soft but semi-hard. And the smell of caramel is still super strong. I only used a quarter sized amount for the back and front each as my hair is super thick. I do like that it melted right in. I'm thinking of giving this product away.

    I am the biggest Oyin fan! The grittiness and thick consistency make me not like it as a pomade but I love this stuff as a hot oil treatment. It has so many great oils in it so every weekend I take a couple spoonfuls, warm in up in the microwave, coat my hair, and let it work its magic overnight. Sometimes I add a little olive oil so it's easier to spread. My hair stays shiny, soft, and smells like heaven all week!

  • Unknown says:

    I really like this prooduct but after about 3 monthsm it got this gritty consistency. I tried to warm it mix it together and let it cool but the grittiness was still there. Anybody else experience this?

  • Moni says:

    I love this stuff. It's everything Nikki said and more!

  • Jamie says:
