Review: Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment

There are times as a beauty fanatic when I cannot contain my excitement over a product. You order it online, pay extra moo-lah for speedy shipping, rip the box open, and test the product right then and there. Okay, so sometimes your boss doesn't like the site of you testing beauty products at work, so you MUST wait to get home to try it, but you secretly play with it at your desk. That product is Ojon's Restorative Hair Treatment. The most amazing product I've ever gotten my hands on.

What is it:

(taken from http://www.ojon.com/) Ojon® Restorative Hair Treatment is a unique, highly-concentrated hair rejuvenator and scalp nutrient made with Ojon® oil the same rare oil used for over 500 years by the Tawira Indians of Central America known as "the people of beautiful hair"™. Its healing effects, documented by clinical testing, are dramatic and immediate. Dry, damaged, color-treated and processed hair becomes restored, fortified, extraordinarily shiny, silky and manageable, right from the first treatment. Even healthy hair shows a noticeable improvement.Ojon® works by penetrating deep into the hair shaft, healing hair from the inside out to provide long-term benefits. As it repairs and seals the cuticle, it traps the nutrient oil within each strand of hair. The result is stronger, fuller, resilient, frizz-free hair that resists damage. Despite its potency, Ojon® is a remarkably lightweight oil that never weighs hair down.The balance is comprised of natural anti-oxidants, natural preservatives and a touch of fragrance. Ojon® is color safe.

In a nutshell (no pun intended), this product is a HIGHLY concentrated oil that is meant to be used as a deep conditioning treatment, a de-frizzer, or a shine enhancer. This product can also be used on the body to ultra hyrdate those rough, dry areas.

Scent: Its hard to describe. When I first opened the package, my intial thought was coffee or espresso. After taking a small amount into my hands and warming it into a liquid oil, there is a smokey-ness to it. Not a cigarette, ive been in a smokey bar all night, smokey, but definitely a smokey smell to it followed with hints of floral. I personally love this scent, coffee, smokey, floral all rolled in one. Even after shampooing and conditioning, I can still smell the scent. So I prefer to wash and condition my hair with something that mixes well with the scent. Typically something that smells of shea butter.

Feel/Texture:

The texture of this is a hard oil in the container. After scooping a TINY (size of a peice of rice) onto my finger tips and melting it, its a very lightweight oil. Not thick like olive oil, but very light and thin.

How to use:

As a restorative treatment: I section my hair off like when I flat iron it. Starting with the bottome section, I warm the size of about a pea into my hand and spread it through the hair shaft and ends of the section working my way up to the roots. I continue this process until all sections of my hair are coated evenly. I brush it through my hair to distribute it evenly. Then I treat myself to a 1-2 minutes scalp massage (as per the directions). I pull my hair up into a messy bun or clip, and let it sit as long as I have. I usually do this after work, or on a saturday so it can sit for a few hours until I wash it out. To wash it out, rinse with warm water, then shampoo and condition as usual. Style as desired.

As a leave-in conditioner: warm a small amount in hands and distribute evenly through damp hair. Style as usual.

As a shine enhancer: Warm a small amount (the size of a grain of rice) in hands and smooth over the surface of dry hair.

After work yesterday, I used this as a hair restorative treatment. After letting it work its magic in my hair for about 4 hours, I hopped in the shower and shampoo and conditioned my hair as usual. I decided to see how this stuff really worked by blow drying and flat ironing my hair (which I havent done in ages!). I used my typical Chi Silk Infusion, and a new heat protectant (review to come) as usual, but my hair looked SO different. It literally felt so much stronger and resiliant. Typically, when I blow dry my hair, it looks like a bird nest, but after using this product it blow dried much smoother and less frizzy. If I was good with a round brush and had more patience, I could have gotten away without flat ironing. But alas, I busted out the flat iron and did my thing. My hair is so smooth and shiney and feel super strong. It smells amazing, and looks just as awesome.

I have used this product 2 times now as a deep treatment and could not be any happier with it.

When you purchase it, it comes with a pamphlet to explain everything about the product(which I though was really cool) with complete directions on the many uses.

If you dont want to fork over the $21 for the small container( which is what I purchased and plan to have a very long time) pop your head into Sephora and see if you can snap up a sample. You wont regret it!

DONT FORGET, IM HAVING A CONTEST. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS! Or, just look right below this post. LOL.

i bought this because of you recommendation, and was wondering how often you do restorative treatments?

Posey said...

Kristen, I would love to say I do it every week, but with life in the way, I dont always get to do it that often. I do however try to use it at least 2 times a month. Especially now in the summer months!

Im so glad that you bought it! I hope it works as well for you as it does for me!

AND only use a LITTLE TINY BIT at a time. I like to section my hair as if im going to straighten it, and then do it in like 2 inch sections. working from the tips to the roots. I use i would say the amount of a pea and add more if needed! A little goes a long way! It doesntneed to be "drenched" in order for it to work either! You will know if you use enough or not if your hair still looks/feel dry while the product is in the hair.

I use this Ojon product & I love it. I have read reviews that people have posted on other sites saying it left their hair looking greasy. It will if you use too much and it must be shampooed out well. My results are great, my hair looks and feels great.

I think the hair care is very important for every woman, because the hair represent one of the most attractive point. A woman can even conquer a man just with a beautiful hair, and when that happend is better the man buy viagra for a great sexual performance.
