  1. Shine and Define definitely shines! Review by Dana

    This product gave me the best curlformers set ever! My curls were so soft and shiny. This product has a good, soft hold and it didn't leave any flaky residue or hard hold behind. Perfect styling product for roller sets and twist-outs. (Posted on 6/12/14)

  2. Not for us Review by Gayat14

    I totally love oyin products; I am the biggest fan of their greg juice and hair dew…however, this product misses the mark, for us. I used it in my daughters hair as suggested and it left her hair feeling sticky and feeling like it had "build up" and it had just been freshly washed. Will not purchase this again, but will continue to use their other great products. (Posted on 6/10/14)

  3. I absolutely it Review by Beauty_nina24

    This product brought my curls to life. I have 3C 4A hair. I can't wait to try the rest of Oyin's hair care line. (Posted on 5/11/14)

  4. Gun Shy... Review by Shelbi

    I really wanted to like this product. I purchased it from Whole Foods in Baltimore, and although the consistency seemed a bit gritty in store, I thought it would emulsify with a little stirring. It did not. I took it home and stirred a little, with no change in the consistency of the product. About 2 weeks later, I made the trip from home in DC to the Oyin Handmade Boutique in Baltimore to find a resolution to my dilemma. I was told that because it is a natural product, after some time the ingredients will break down and separate. I was assured that with a little mixing on my part, my product would no longer be gritty. I purchased a few other goodies and headed back to DC. I stirred with a spoon, a butter knife and even purchased a hand-held mixer and used the wire whip to whip my shine and define into shape...all to no avail. I've read many good reviews about this product, but I am hesitant to invest more money, for fear that I will end up with problem. (Posted on 12/6/13)

  5. Shine & Define -- One word? AWESOME!! Review by Deb

    Oh. My. Goodness. Shine & Define is the REAL DEAL. I, like many others new to being natural, have been searching, and searching for a product that would control frizz, moisturize my hair for longer than 4 hours or completely dried and softens my hair. THIS PRODUCT DOES ALL OF THAT!!

    I bought the sampler kit first and was totally sleeping on it until Black Friday rolled around. I decoded to try out the S&D, Hair Dew and Greg Juice before Oyin's most recent sale and I must say I am extremely happy. Oyin's S&D (along with Hair Dew, Greg Juice and Burnt Sugar Pomade) will now be staple products for me. I feel as if I turned a significant corner in my natural journey and I believe I can let alot of other brand products go now.... Thank you, Oyin!! (Posted on 12/3/13)

  6. nice smell but grainy Review by rae

    The last time I used this product was nearly two years ago, and I feel like it might have changed. At least my batch. It still has its lovely, familiar smell, but right out of the tub it is very, very grainy. The graininess doesn't go away even with a vigorous rub of the hands. It gives a dandruff-y look to my hair - even with the tiniest amount - so I can't use it if I have somewhere to be (which is most of the time). (Posted on 11/5/13)

  7. The Perfect Twist Out Review by Lynn Renée

    I haven't been without this product for almost 2 years when I do my twist outs! It eliminates frizz and holds the style for days with just a satin pillow case. It truly does EXACTLY what it gives my hair unbelievable SHINE and it DEFINES my twists like no other product I've tried, while still allowing it to move. A little goes a very long way and for extra softness, I mix it in my hand with a little Whipped Pudding. Awesome product Oyin!!! (Posted on 8/7/13)

  8. A great 2fer Review by felicia

    This a great 2 for 1 product. Good moisturizer and holding product. Great for a twist out and definitely soft hold. (Posted on 8/7/13)

  9. Yummy! Review by LaTasha

    Shine and Define smells so good you'd want to eat it. I love using it just for the scent alone and it gives my hair shine without that greasy feeling. I also love hearing comments like your hair looks and smells nice. (Posted on 8/7/13)

  10. Best styler I have ever used Review by kahlea

    LOVE this stuff. Best styler I have ever used. It definitely does what it says, shine and defines. I like to use this layered on top of a thicker/heavier leave in or butter. It pairs very nicely with SM curl enhancing smoothie, and even better with camille rose curl love milk. its the sprinkles on top of the sundae, just makes your style that much better!

  13. Wonderful for twist-outs Review by Tasha

    This along with the Whipped Pudding was one of the first products I ever bought after my big chop and it has yet to disappoint. It gives me the most soft and defined twist-outs I have ever had. It smells wonderful and lasts a long time. (Posted on 8/3/13)

  14. Smells AMAZING Review by Tacola Mae

    Smells really really really good (don't eat it!) but leaves my hair a little crunchy. Use in moderation though and you'll be fine! (Posted on 7/31/13)
