My friend kindly gave me this Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment to try the other day after my incessant whinging about my damaged hair saga. I have seen Ojon in quite a high end beauty shop in Cheshire Oaks before but never bothered to investigate them. Their packaging doesn’t stand out to me and I’ve never heard them mentioned by other people so were forgotten about pretty quickly.
I do know they’re quite an expensive brand (well, for me expensive for a hair product is anything over £5, but I’m cheap like that) but it completely made me GASP, like literally!! I just this second googled it to see this product actually retails for £32.50!!! What the ****!!!! Feel a bit bad for having it donated to me now haha.
Anyway, back to the actual product, just let me get over that WTF moment I just had…. It comes in a solid form. You scoop a bit out at a time and melt it in your hands until it becomes an oil. Then you distribute it through your hair until it’s all covered. It recommends that the product should be left on for 20 minutes or more, adding heat if your hair is particularly damaged. I left it on for about 3 hours because my hair is ‘uber’ damaged!
The thing I couldn’t get over was the smell. It was like old coffee. Not nice coffee, like when a really old man has been drinking coffee, then sweating coffee, or something. Do you get what I mean? It was a bit musty and a bit grim. I literally couldn’t wait to wash it out. But when I did the results were pretty good. NOT spectacular. But GOOD. My hair seems smoother. Not really less damaged but usually in the morning it kinks out at the bottom and looks weird but this morning it didn’t. I liked the result but for that price I can recreate the result with other products I already have, for a much cheaper price. I’ll use it until the pot runs out and write about it again if a miracle is created. My overall opinion? A mediocre product with a bad smell for a ridiculous price!
