All this week @oyinhandmade will be posting these ads in recognition of Ash Awareness Week. Each day we will present a new term into the ash lexicon. Since I made these ads you will be the first to see & share them. #AAW #SnowBows #pierrebennu
Made it to Whole Foods Harbor East to grab an iced coffee and some other stuff. I went down the hair aisle and spotted some of my favorite @oyinhandmade goodies! They had to come home with me! Greg Juice + Hair Dew = The Perfect Hair Thirst Quenching Remedy! #oyinhandmade
If you’re on the Oyin Handmade email list, you’ve probably gotten an invite for their bottling parties at their headquarters. Additionally, if you’re on the Oyin Handmade email list and you’re like me, you’ve likely logged on in numerous attempts to participate, only to find that all tickets were sold out. They go fast, guys.
However, this time I made it - happened to get the email alert just in time and logged on ASAP - and participated in their bottling party this past weekend. It was so much fun, you guys, and an extra plus was that we got a cool discount (which equaled FREE goodies) and an opportunity to stock up on favorites or try new things while we were there, hence my picture. I think I spent about $30 for $70-$80 worth of stuff, but only because I wanted a little extra. Still, dopeness.
I can’t go into much detail, and I didn’t take pictures. But here’s what I can tell you:
- It smelled wonderful. Imagine an Oyin Handmade wonderland with all your favorite products and their scents. That’s what it is. First you get a whiff of that Original Honey scent…then the Whipped Pudding…and then that Hair Dew scent wafting about…mmmmm.
- The staff was amazing and very helpful. You can tell working there is a blast.
- The other volunteers (Oyin Honeys) were awesome as well - and all flyy with their natural or transitioning hair. I felt like I’d made some new friends. Some of us were newbies while others were frequent volunteers.
So, here’s what I got:
- Honey Wash (shampoo/body wash) in Original Honey and Black Cedar Fig - Honey Water (a body mist) in Original Honey - Funk Butter (deodorant) in Coco Mango - Whipped Pudding - Burnt Sugar Pomade - No Ash At All
And the awesome T-Shirt below:.
Hopefully I can score another invite because I definitely plan to do this again! Sign up here for your chance.
