Ojon Oil comes from the tropical rainforests of Central america and has ben used for generations by the Taiwar people. Taiwar means people of beautiful hair
I bought the Ojon® Hair Care 5-Piece Nurturing Hair Ritual Kit from John Lewis for £30.50 which was a really nice place to start to try out this product especially for my dry, dehydrated hair. The kit contained:
Ultra hydrating shampoo, 60ml
Ultra hydrating conditioner, 60ml
Hydrating styling cream, 60ml
Restorative hair treatment, 50ml
Revitalizing mist spray, 25ml
Ojon® Restorative Hair Treatment
The website speil:
Ojon® Restorative Hair Treatment is a hair rejuvenator that helps hydrate and improve the condition of dry, damaged hair - without weighing it down. After just one treatment hair is extraordinarily soft, silky and manageable. Restorative Hair Treatment contains our highest concentration of pure Ojon® oil.
This was my particular favourite from this kit. This treatment consists of palm oil, fragrance, and a few extracts. We know that some oils penetrate the hair, like coconut oil which will filter deep into the cortex because it is so similar to hair’s natural lipids. We also know that washing our hair removes some of these natural oils. Once inside the hair, the oil serves as a re-fatting agent. However, this type of conditioning won’t have much effect on the cuticle, the outer layer of hair, so you’ll still need to use a good conditioner to smooth the hair and make it easier to comb. It is similar in this regard to coconut oil, but I did love the feel of my hair after using it as a pre-poo. I enjoyed using it and will definately be buying agaian and will be adding it my list of great oils. I even used it before self relaxing to protect the ends along with some JBCO.
Ojon® Ultra hydrating shampoo and conditioner
The website speil:
A daily, ultra-rich moisturising cleanser that conditions hair with exclusive Ojon® oil, Shea Butter and Sweet Almond. Adds weightless body without static.
An ultra-rich conditioner for dry, dehydrated hair. Contains exclusive 'Ojon oil', Shea Butter and Sweet Almond to instantly detangle, condition and add shine to your hair without weighing it down.
Another lovely set of hydtaing conditioner and shampoo. I enjoyed using these but again no better than any other moisturising shampoos I have used, for example PhytoJojoba. Just different in terms of smell and texture. Not sure if I would see more of a diffrence after longer term use, but my hair feels soft and shiny and I cant fault these products but again so many other moisturising shampoos do relatively the same thing.
Ojon® Hydrating styling cream and Revitalizing mist spray
Ojon® hydrating Styling Cream: A leave in styling treatment with light hold. hydrates and smoothes damaged and dehydrated hair. Formulated with encapsulated Ojon microspheres to help detangle while providing a brililant shine.
Ojon® Revitalizing Mist Refreshingly light, this leave-in “shake to activate” formula works like “liquid Ojon®” to instantly refresh and detangle hair - a great way to add moisture hair loses every day
These two styling products were lovely to use particualrly the styling cream with its microbeads that melt in your hands on heating up. Really smoothed down ny hair and kept the shape of so mamy styles. Also added lovely shiny feel to my lack lustre hair. So another winner in my book. The spray claims to reflect the sunlight to give that extra shine and it has definately won me over
All in all the Ojon products were a good buy and I am definately loving this range and would recommend it if you are looking for something new and different for you dry damaged hair. Beware however these products don't come cheap! Again as with any product my best advice is keeping it routine and keeping a record. You will notice the difference
