Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner, and Rare Blend Hair Oil

In these times of ‘no poo’ and ‘co-washing’, it is controversial to admit that I wash my hair every two days. I need to – I always seem to be running about, exercising and making my hair so oily that not even the best dry shampoo can make a dent. Perhaps I need to grit my teeth and train my scalp to secrete less oil by washing less – one day I will have the self discipline, but for now, my routine is going to stay the same.

Due to my quite frequent hair washing and the fact my hair is dyed, I need a good hair products that hydrate my locks and stop them from splitting. I’ve recently started using (and have fallen in love with) three products from the Ojon range – the Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner, used alongside the Rare Blend Oil.

Ojon is a new brand for me as it is somewhat difficult to get your hands on in Australia. If you are unfamiliar, Ojon uses ‘ojon oil’ in their products, derived from the nut of the eponymous plant growing inCentral America. They follow the scores of other hair oils, such as moroccan and argan, touted as saviours for dry and damaged hair.

Along with ojon oil, the shampoo and conditioner contain Passiflora Oil, Buruti Oil and Murumuru Butter, which work to further enrich the hair. Also featured on the ingredients list is Wheat Protein, which apparently helps strengthen the hair follicle. I find the shampoo and conditioner duo work pretty well by themselves, washing my roots but not so much to leave them ‘squeaky’ and nourishing the ends of my hair. But the hair oil – applied on towel dried hair - is definitely a must for me.

The product is beautiful, with the layers of different coloured oils recalling those ‘traffic light’ drinks of my childhood. Shake up the bottle to mix the oils, brush through the lengths of damp hair and voilà. I did find that the heaviness of the oil takes some getting used to, so be careful if you have very fine hair.

So far, I’m impressed. I’ve got a solid hair care routine down pat with this trio and I’m also excited to test more of the range. Definitely a combo I’d recommend for long-haired girls who can’t wait 4 or 5 days before a wash.

Have you tried these products, or any products from the range?
