Hair Dew

looking for a product to wake up and moisturize your 'second day hair'? looking for a way to make your hair pliable enough to re-style without a full rinse? just want to refresh your coils and curls and give them a shot of moisture before sealing? this leave-in is your answer! plays well with other oyin leave-ins and stylers.

imagine if the old school 'oil moisturizers' of the past were made of things that are actually good for your hair! as always, mineral/paraffin/petroleum free and full of nourishing castor, olive, and coconut oils instead. we also combine with aloe vera to quench the thirstiest hair... and since it's glycerin-free it's appropriate for even the driest of climates. give your hair a drink today!

now available in 250ml, 500ml, and NEW! 1-Liter bottles! scented with a light, sweet, buttery-sugar scent.

this creamy, conditioning leave-in is light enough for every day. it's great on 'naked' hair immediately after a cleanse, or as a way to reinvigorate tired hair all the way through your hair care cycle.

for seriously protective hair experience, try using hair dew on moist hair (or over a quick spritz of one of our Juices herbal leave-ins) and then seal ends with one of the Sugar Pomades before gently manipulating hair into a protective style like braids, twists, or an updo. days of moisture, sheen, and hair happiness!
ingredients: purified water, castor oil, olive oil, organic aloe vera gel, behentrimonium methosulfate (and) cetearyl alcohol (emulsifier derived from colza oil), coconut oil, olive squalane, phenoxyethanol (and) caprylil glycol (preservative), cetyl alcohol, fragrance, and love!

    I like slip when I use a leave-in conditioner, and I got more slip than I thought possible of any product. Therefore, I LOVE this product!

    It made my freshly washed hair feel like 'dew.' And it definitely keeps my hair moisturized after drying and at least another day.

    I don't write reviews, but this product is OUTSTANDING. This was not effective as a leave in for me, but as a refresher on dry hair before bed... This product is perfect. I can freshen and soften my hair daily in the winter. It's light enough to use generously (by the pump) and I seal with my home made oil mixture or raw Shea butter. My hair is 3c but very hard and stiff when dry. This product softens my hair right up and it lasts the whole day and sometimes 2.

    The Hair Dew lotion is amazing!! It's extra moisturizing and slips through the hair very easily. I was surprised that I didn't have to spray my hair with water first to detangle my dry hair. Just using the lotion by itself naturally gave me the moisture that I needed to manage and style my hair.

    I am in love with product and do plan to purchase it again! Thanks so much for this. I have finally found my staple leave-in.

    I ordered a trial size hoping the smell had changed but its the same. It is just too strong. I like the moisture it provides but I can't get past the too strong smell. I really wish there were options for scents or unscented on this product. Also, when I got my last trial size it was not sealed all the way. 1/3 of the product ended up in the mailer. Very disappointing.

    Review by kuteNkurly
    I am not sure why it took me so long to find Hair Dew but thank God I did!! I used to be a product junkie but this cured me. I have thick 4a-4b hair type and it used to stay so dry and to top it off I have sensitive skin so what ever I used caused me to break out. Enters Hair Dew and I have not had a problem with dryness or breakouts. At first I thought the smell would make me sick because I do not tolerate scents well. I was surprised that it was very suttle and I did not have an "allergy attack". If you are on the fence I would say jump you cannot go wrong at ALL with this product. I even use it when I straighten my hair. I mix a dab with my leave in and my hair is shiny and bouncy and stays hydrated until I wash again. Just buy it already!!!

    Review by Amy
    AMAZING. Where have you been all my life, Oyin? I have found the true love of my life. Oyin has stepped into my curly coils life on bended knee and came to my rescue. The life of a natural hair super-heroine is never smooth terrain.Trying out new products with such hope and aspiration that maybe, this one will work out. As you can imagine, the holy grail of products come a dime a dozen per marketing matchmakers and leave a gal like myself with unfulfilled hair. But once in a long while a product comes along and becomes my sidekick, ala Maddy to my Addison, Charlie to my Lucy, Huey to my Jasmine.
    Virtually no buildup, rather no build-up. Light delish fragrance, moisture rich, all natural ingredients, locally made by a great business with a niche that certainly has made its place with my naturally curlys, big chops, and transitioners.
    Bravo Oyin
    P,s, Try their other products too...Funk Butter is the truth!

    I absolutely love this leave-in/moisturizer!!! I suffered from Protein overload and Oyin Hairdew came to the rescue. It only took one week to turn it around. I applied it to the length of my hair at night and covered it with a satin bonnet. Once I prepared my hair in the morning for work it was absolutely full of moisture!!! I highly recommend this product and will be repurchasing. Please don't change the formula!!!

    Beware this review is a bit long :)

    It's Cyber Monday!! You immediately think great discount until I placed my order for the Hair Dew (1L) and after shipping I only saved $.15 cents. What a blow!! The hype was to much....I couldn't even save a dollar.

    The product is absolutely amazing please never change the formula. My hair soaks it up. This is a staple for me and it is the ONLY water based leave in I use for my hair. And I love it.

    The only downfall is the price. The price is rising and it's starting to bother me. The price rose to about 3 to 4 dollars more a bottle!! And then shipping is damn there almost 8 dollars. So all in all the total increase for ME at least, is about 11-12 dollars. I love you guys but you are starting to become like the rest.

    You have a great product, people love it and you slowly start increasing the price little by little to the point where you wonder hmm should I be paying almost 40 dollars for a single hair product?

    Also! your 16.9oz bottle used to be 500mL and it is now 475 mL?? I mean some may say it's petty but that's 25mL decrease in product (almost an oz) but I'm still charged more!!

    I have told everyone I know about this product, and a few laugh when they see the price. No one is forcing anyone to buy the product but the price is becoming more of a burden. Especially shipping! $75 dollars for free shipping....ridiculous!

    Oyin Handmade I love your product, but your pricing is a bit ludicrous now.

    I have been using Hair Dew for two years now and I think I love it more and more after each use. I have really course 4C hair and Hair Dew gives it much love. Hair Dew is creamy, yet light weight and sooo moisturizing. Hair Dew is the Truth!

    OMG!! I love love love this product! It leaves my fine strands incredibly soft, easy to detangle and most importantly moisturized!! After a year and a half of being natural I have finally found something that actually keeps my hair moisturized without buildup and as an added bonus it smells delicious!! I use it as a leave in on damp hair and then seal in the moisture with their burnt sugar pomeade! What a winning combination! Thanks so much for creating such great products!!

    Review by Naya
    Who's baking sweets? Yum! Oh wait, that's my hair. Hair dew, hair dew, hair dew. This product helped me discover what my hair really needed. My hair would often be dry as a desert and then I kept hearing about this company named Oyin. Hmm, why not give it a shot right? The hair dew left my hair super soft and when paired with Oyin's Burnt Sugar Pomade I got my first successful wash & go. I could even get awesome hair just paring it with water which was incredible! Definitely a highly recommended product.

    Review by Leah Nicole
    This is an amazing conditioner. I smells like baked goodies!!! Yum. I would not use this product alone or with just oil. It tends to make my hair dry. I found that this was best used whenever I would protective style. I would, on wet hair, use a little of this, some oil and a moisturizing styler on top. This kept my hair moisturized forever!! At least until I took it down which was about a week. Definitely worth the rebuy whenever I find the change.

    Review by Joanie
    Only a few products are true game changers and this is definitely one. I placed my first order of Hair Dew on 1.11.11 and it has maintained the balance of moisture in my hair ever since. Natural for six years, I was a HUGE product junkie and dabbled in the leave-in/moisturizer options that other natural and non-natural brands offered. I found a cocktail of products that worked well, but I didn't know true moisture until the Hair Dew. My hair is a beautiful, fine mass of coils that flyaway in cold, humidity or when stretched. My hair now looks smoother, lustrous, has dark, crazy sheen and doesn't feel greasy. Jamyla and Pierre have somehow concocted the perfect combination of penetrating oils, humectants, and moisture to balance hair overtime without buildup. It works so well and so consistently that I even took it as my only hair product on a camping trip! Yes. I now use it in my weekly routine either alone, underneath stylers, or to refresh Kinky Curly sets.

    I can't say enough WONDERFUL things about Oyin's Hair Dew!!! Whenever my Wash and Go is more of a Wash and NO, Hair Dew to the rescue!!!

Please don't ever stop making this product!!! Gratitude Oyin!!!!

    This was the first and only product post big chop to provide my hair with amazing moisture that lasts! I bought the 16.9 oz bottle last October and my hair loves it. A little goes a long way. The moisturizer has a very creamy consistency but is not too thick, perfect for curlies who's hair does not like heavy products. The smell reminds me of vanilla cream and is absolutely divine. I would recommend this product to anyone who needs lasting moisture and wants serious shine and manageability.

    Review by Julie K.
    I subscribe to CurlKit and usually the products made for African-American hair don't work on my fine, porous 3b white girl curls. My hair always looked oily or weighed down using these types of products, especially ones heavy in oils. I was very hesitant to try this stuff- but wow- was I glad I did. It smells like a candy store in heaven! It applied easily to my hair, made it so shiny and silky, AND allowed my curl to come out with no frizz withsoever! I feel like this product could work on ANY hair type. Great stuff!!

    When I first started using this product, my hair was so dry. Two years later and my hair has done a complete 360. Hair dew is so moisturizing but not oily at all. And the smell is AMAZING!!! I recommend it to all hair types and thank you Oyin for making such dope products!!

    Review by LaTasha
    I can't live without hair dew. This is by far one of my favorite Oyin products. I use it on my wet and dry hair daily. It's great for my two strand twists and leaves my hair looking really good. Sometimes after I wash my hair and twist with the dew and venture out I get wonderful compliments on my hair. Of course I have to tell them about Oyin and where to purchase hair dew.

    Great leave-in and every day moisturizer! I like to use this when im putting my hair up in a bun. It makes it soft and shiny when I take it down at the end of the day. Smells delicious and its light enough to use every day.

    Review by Adrienne
    This is my absolute favorite product from Oyin Handmade. I use Hair Dew for everything from my twist, to twist outs, to fluffy curls on sponge rollers. It adds the needed umph, or mositure my hair needs without weighing down my hair. And I can use it every day and it still isn't weighed down. When I don't use it you can tell, its dry and doesn't do what I need it to do. I've tried tons of other products but nothing has beat this one. I'm no longer a product junkie. #teamHairDew

    Well, I don't know about the seasickness, but my waves are lookin' mighty fresh and ocean-like with Oyin Handmade's Hair Dew!

    I use this leave-in conditioner on the daily for my 4A/4B hair, whether I'm rocking a buzzed Dark Caesar or sporting my waves and curls because I'm too lazy to get a haircut. Either way, my hair is sufficiently hydrated and super soft all day.

    OH, you don't have it yet? Get it, right now! You won't regret your decision!

    Review by Shirley
    I have fine to medium texture very thick low porosity hair, and it's difficult to find a leave-in conditioner that won't weigh down my hair and is also moisturizing. I'm a terrible product junkie, but I keep coming back to Oyin Handmade's Hair Dew because I always get good results. It also plays well with other products - no white film residue, etc. And has very good slip in application!!

    I do wish there was an unscented version, it has a nice scent but sometimes my sinuses are not happy with any scents. 5 stars!

    Honey Dew + Hair = 4eva

    If Melanie (my hair) could marry this leave in and be Melanie Dew she probably would. They are great together! haha but seriously, this is an awesome leave-in. It is so moisturizing, has major slip for detangling, and the moisture level remains even when my hair is completely dry after washing. Has the same slip (or better) than Kinky Curly Knot Today. And after a couple days, i just scrunch some into my ends and seal with an oil, and the moisture loving continues on through the week. Yeah, I dew.

    I use this product as soon as I get out of the shower with my hair completely saturate with a little Honey Hemp Conditioner still left in my hair. I found that it is best to apply this product with my hair saturated and then, for definition and added moisture I add the pomade.

    My hair is very dry, especially between washings. The hair dew provides enough moisture without weighing my hair down. It plays well with all of my other products or I can use it alone. My hair is soft but not greasy. And it makes me want a bowl of Golden Grahams :)

    This has been a part of my Holy Grail staples since I first tried it over a year ago. I love how multifunctional it is for my hair - it's a leave-in, a daily moisturizer, and sometimes I wear it as a stand-alone styler with the Burnt Sugar Pomade. It leaves my hair nice and soft. I love it!

    When it comes to body and hair products, the scent is one of the most important things. Hands down, Hair DEW is the BEST smelling hair moisturizer I've ever tried.

    I have been using Hair Dew since it was first introduced on my hair and also my son's. It's a great leave in and every day moisturizer. It has been the only moisturizer that keeps my son's dry curls soft and moisturized all day. it also makes detangling and moisturizing my hair easy when I been neglectful and my hair is a dry tangled mess.

    I ordered a small bottle of the Hair Dew from CurlMart and I fell in love. It made my hair so soft and moisturized for a week. I had to have more, so I ordered the 1 liter bottle and 2 mini bottles from Oyin. I gave the 2 mini bottles away to my natural friends and told them they had to try it. Now they LOVE it. I cannot be without this product. It is now my one and only leave-in / daily moisturizer.

    Review by Jeannie
    My previous light moisturizer was suddenly nowhere to be found and I was trying several products as potential replacements when Hair Dew was suddenly available. It was exactly what I had been looking for.
    Hair Dew has a liquid-silk consistency that absorbs quickly and easily. I use it liberally after washing when I twist my hair, and then during the week when I'm rocking my twist-out. I have even admitted to slathering it on my arms and legs when I can't find the lotion because there's no greasy after-feel. Like most Oyin products, Hair Dew has the heavenly scent of a fresh-baked dessert. So long as it keeps getting made, I'll keep buying.

    I have been using this product since I started caring for my natural hair 2 years ago and it has been an essential staple in my hair regimen ever since . I spray my ends with Greg Juice and then add a little bit of hair dew to the length of the hair strand before I go to bed each night. The Oyin hair dew penetrates the strands of my hair so that it doesn't build up and leaves my hair very soft the next morning. I love this stuff!

    My hair loves this after a wash and go.. which is the only style I ever wear! Do you remember that awful Pink Lotion your mom used on you when you were a lil nappy head? This reminds me of that stuff but natural and amazing and SO much better for you! Smells great and it's lighter than the other products (WP).
