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.

ok but not great

my hair was a knotty mess before and after the treatment... smelled good, felt good, but didn't seem to restore much to my blonde hair.

Even though this product sinks so very badly... it worked great! It is amazing and will be buying some soon.

Still a bad scent
Sampled

I really, really wanted to like this, but I still can't stomach the smell. I had hoped the smell would be better than the original Ojon mask but it isn't. If this did anything good for my hair, I would try to deal with the smell, but it doesn't help my hair at all, even when I try it with heat or leaving it on overnight.

Very weird!

I loved the way this product made my hair feel. However, the smell is HIGHLY off putting. It smells like old ashtray. I could not purchase this product due to the heavy odor.

Great Product

This helps with my hair a lot, I am trying to grow out my hair and this made it look a lot healthier. The only thing is, you should really follow with a clarifying shampoo because it tends to make it greasy after I wash.

Didn't really like the texture, didn't really cover my hair like I was expecting. The smell is not that great

Works well, but not what I was expecting.

When I received this product in my birchbox I tried it immediately and was very impressed with the results. I went and bought myself the full product a few days later. Now that I've been using the product often, though, I've started to realize that the softening effects are too temporary for this to be a reasonable buy. The product comes with about 10 uses worth of oil (I have long, thick hair, so it may be more for other people.) While it's something I recommend others try, I'm not satisfied and will probably not buy again.

This sample saved me from having to make an emergency hair appointment! I desperately needed a trim, and this really moisturized my tips!

This stuff is so, so good. I'm growing my hair out currently (read: it is a dry ended mess) and this helped it so much! It made my hair so lovely and soft and hydrated.
