Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment
I first dipped into Ojon when I was a newly natural back in 2010. A naturalista friend of mine told me about the brand. I watched a few product reviews on YouTube and the feedback was mixed but I decided to try it anyway. I bought a travel sized Ojon set which included their Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment which I used it as advised and was happy with the results. However, other products came on the scene and in true product junkie fashion, I moved on. Last month I was invited to Ojon HQ for their Treatment Triage and I left with a goody bag full of fantastic hair products from Ojon and Aveda, also included was a full sized tub of Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment. Now that my hair is much longer and colour-treated, I was curious to see how the product would work. I can assure you that it lived up to its promises.
This product was just the thing for my fine, damaged, curly hair. It contains pure Ojon Oil which is obtained from the nut of the Ojon Tree, which is found in the remote regions of the tropical rainforest in Central America. The Oil is known for its ability to help restore damaged hair to its natural radiance, suppleness, bounce, body, volume and vibrancy. From my experience I can confirm that it does deliver good results. The treatment can be used with or without electrical heat and as an activator. It can also be used as an overnight treatment. It really depends on what your hair needs.
I think of this hair product as a monthly hair treatment. It comes solidified in a plastic pot and the colour is close to a milky-coffee brown. Let me tell you - the smell is divine; the fragrance is similar to nutty-coffee. To use it, you must take the required amount (one to five teaspoons) and rub it between your hands to melt it into its oil form. Once melted, the oil is thick but easily spreadable. I applied the equivalent of roughly two tablespoons (more than advised on instructions) to my dry hair. I covered my hair in with two plastic caps and went about with my house chores and then rinsed out the treatment after an hour. It’s recommended that you leave it in for 20 minutes.
However, if your hair is badly damaged heat can be applied for five minutes and/or the treatment can be left on overnight. Hence, I didn’t think leaving it in for an hour without applying heat would be a problem. After rinsing out the treatment, I washed and conditioned my hair with Ojon’s Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner. I towel-dried my rinsed hair and styled as usual and the results were beautiful curls that really popped. Depending on the length and thickness of hair you can get at least four uses from 100ml pot.
Overall my hair looked full, moisturised, bouncy, healthy and frizz-free. The existing colour looked even better because my hair was simply so shiny and vibrant. Anyone who knows anything about Ojon’s will be aware that their range is extensive and works brilliantly on Afro hair. As I mentioned before I used the Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment with the matching Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner for thin weak hair. However, it can be teamed with any other shampoos and conditioners suitable for your hair’s needs.. Experienced naturalistas like myself often mix and match hair products on hair wash day and I’m sure the Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment will work effectively with your usual products.
Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Hair Treatment is priced at £34.50.
