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.
The instructions on the box make this sound a lot easier than it actually is to apply this treatment to your hair- it starts as a solid, and you have to scoop it out and then melt it in your hands. The problem is that in order to evenly melt the product in your hands (otherwise it's like putting chunks of butter in your hair), you have to scoop tiny amounts at each time- unless you're willing to waste extra product. This is also super hard to apply evenly to your hair. I end up with small chunks and with only part of my hair covered in this mask. The claim on the description is right- most treatments are like a glorified conditioner. But those treatment creams are much easier and more efficient to use. For all the trouble it takes to apply this, I don't notice any difference in my hair.
My thick coarse hair needs all the moisture it can get. Ojon is a welcome surprise from all of the thick cream based hair treatments I've used before. It has a nice scent which I appreciate too.
I normally use a weekly masque but liked the oil too. I like that it turns into and oil so you have better control over how much you get. I also really liked that my hair wasn't too dripping oily while it was sitting, it was saturated but not overwhelming. I did feel like I had to was my hair twice before it was all out though. My hair was soft and shiny, but it's not very damaged to begin with so I don't know how restorative it ascaris lot is. Also a lot of reviews said the smells was awful, maybe it was just bc it was a sample but I didn't think it was too bad or overwhelming -- maybe not the absolute best, but nothin terrible enough that I wouldnt use it
I have thick and wavy hair. This hair treatment worked great!
Smells gross and has to sit on your hair for 20 minutes. Didn't feel like it made much of a difference to my hair.
My hair was suffering during a week of travel for work, particularly due to the very cold and dry weather while using harsh hotel shampoos and conditioners, yuck. Fortunately I decided to give this hair treatment product a try. I was blown away by the results. My frizzy-dry hair became soft, shiny, and tame. Even colleagues thought I got my hair done. I became a believer in this product.
This is very moisturizing for your hair and has a very good lasting smell.
I like the product, leaves my hair soft and healthy. What I didn't like is the form of applying it, a little to messy for my taste.
I can't say it made my hair especially smooth... but I still enjoyed the sample. It smells good too!
Overall, didn't enjoy this product. I didn't feel like it did anything for my hair, and the whole gel to oil thing was kinda gross to me. Plus, it smelt like cocoa butter, so I really just felt like I was putting lotion in my hair.
