Follow this pre-shampoo treatment by washing your hair with Ojon’s damage reverse™ Restorative Shampoo.

Ojon

Birchbox Breakdown

Let’s start with a disclaimer: most hair treatments are more or less conditioners masquerading under fancy names. Not so with Ojon’s creamy balm, which goes beyond moisturizing to actually repair many types of hair damage—from split ends to uncontrollable frizz. A unique pre-shampoo treatment, it transforms into a rich oil upon contact with the heat of your palms, and it’s designed to be applied directly to dry hair. After just one use, your hair will be stronger, shinier, and softer.

How it Works

This luscious balm is overflowing with ojon oil from Central American rain forests. Rich in essential antioxidants and lipids, ojon oil (together with an infusion of Rouge Oleifera) restores the integrity of each hair shaft while sealing in shine. Over time, your hair will be less prone to breakage and heat damage. You’ll be glad to know that the filler-free formula doesn’t contain a single drop of water, and it’s also free of artificial preservatives, dyes, and heavy silicones. Plus, the invigorating scent is sure to win you over.

How to Use

Once or twice a week, scoop a small amount of the balm into your palms. Rub your hands together to melt the balm into an oil. Smooth the oil through dry hair section by section, and repeat until your entire head is covered. Wait 20 minutes, then hop into the shower and rinse off with warm water before shampooing. For a deeper conditioning treatment, leave on hair overnight and rinse out in the morning.

Too Greasy
Sampled

I have fine hair (but a lot of it, making my hair appear thick) and this stuff was WAY too greasy. Even after a few thorough shampoos, my hair looked slick and weighed down.

Smells Horrible!
Sampled

This smells too overpowering for me. I can't stand using it and it doesn't seem to change my hair texture all that much either.

Not That Bad
Sampled

I was a little afraid to use this after reading some reviews, but it wasn't too bad! The smell is a little weird-kind of like a mix between smoke and a chocolate orange, but not overpowering. I liked the texture and it made my hair shiny. It took a few "shampoo, rinse and repeat"s to get it totally out of my hair.

Do not buy
Sampled

This, like everyone else says, smells like straight up cigarettes. It doesn't do anything particularly special for the hair either. I'll probably use the second sample pack because I don't want to waste it, but it's not that enjoyable to use because I'm afraid my hair will smell like I've been in a bar.

Not for me
Sampled

It's ok. I have severely damaged/overprocessed/colored/chemically treated hair and this just didn't do it for me. I have had much better results with other deep conditioners that are far cheaper.
