I have a love hate relationship with oils, they are just too oily. I don't want to leave my fingerprints on everything I touch but at the same time I love all of the shiny goodness left on my skin after I apply an oil. I decided to purchase the After Bath oil from Oyinhandmade during their Black Friday sale for a mere $12.00 (a larger size is also available). This oil can be used from head to toe so I decided to actually use it on my hair and body. Well well well, thank you Oyin for giving me just the type of oil that I need in my life. This oil works better on my hair to lock in moisture than probably any other oil that I have used. I like it mainly because it doesn't weigh my hair down like some of the heavier oils that I've used in the past. I should also note that I use very little at a time when sealing in moisture because I hate a greasy heavy head of hair. While I am still not fully on the moisturize and seal bandwagon, when I do seal in moisture this is the product that I turn to.
I also love the fact that this oil is available in a variety of scents, I selected coco mango. I mentioned on one of my videos that the coco mango scent really does smell like a fruity mixture of coconuts and mangos (emphasis is placed more on the mango/ fruity scent as opposed to a strong coconut scent).
For my body this oil absorbs as well as coconut oil, maybe a little better so that works out well for me too! I feel like the oil absorbs well but that generally translates into the fact that I need to apply more if I want to maintain my shiny glow that you all know I love.
I would totally get this product again, in fact I am going to upgrade and get the largest bottle possible.
Some of the ingredients include - rice bran oil, walnut oil, coconut oil, vitamin E, sweet almond oil and black seed oil.
Have you tried this after bath oil? Which oils rock your boat? Do you seal your hair after moisturizing?

Yesterday I saw this trailer (see below) for a new movie entitled "our Family Wedding" which features many well known actors. - Does anyone else have a problem with Regina King being married to Forrest Whitaker while playing the MOM to Lance Gross? I think she looks way too young to be linked to Forrest or playing the momma to Lance. Although I'm glad she is working, I am still left asking #whoapprovedthis ? What are your thoughts
