Natural Hair – Products: The Style Team

N

As mentioned in an earlier post, these are the gems I’ve been using in my hair.

Oyin Handmade’s Burnt Sugar Pomade – This is an oil-based product. The packaging says it’s a “humectant”.

Mind you, I’m not too sure about it’s moisturizing properties. The main reason I keep it around is that it smells like butter tarts. (If you’re Canadian, you probably know what I’m referring to. If not, I feel sorry for you. 😉 )

Seriously, though. It smells amazing.

My only caveat is that it doesn’t dissolve easily. Normally after I’ve rubbed it between my palms for a few seconds, some bits of one of its heavier ingredients (a type of wax?) are still solid.


Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream
– My hair LOVES this stuff. It’s a moisturizing cream that has a very light citrus scent.

The packaging says that it “Softens and moisturizes fine, thin hair.” This statement made me pause.

Maybe there’s a secret black hair scale that I’m not aware of. But my hair’s pretty dense. And it loves this stuff!

Some people say that if you have type 4 hair, you should use Qhemet’s Alma Olive & Heavy Cream. However,  that only worked for me some of the time. Quite often I felt that it was too heavy. If it’s too much for you, and you want to stick with Qhemet’s products, you might prefer their BRBC.
