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.

Works well, but not what I was expecting.
SampledPurchased

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!

AMAZING

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.

Best deep conditioner ever!!!
Purchased

I have started a new trend. My massage therapist uses this on my hair two times per week to deep condition my hair. My hair has never felt or looked more amazing. Now she does it as a hair treatment for her other clients and they all love it. I leave it in my hair for a few hours or even overnight!

Real softness!
Sampled

I was a little tentative to use this sample because I often feel oils leave my hair feeling weighed down and greasy, but I am so glad I gave it a chance. The first thing I noticed was the light smell - reminiscent of coffee and chocolate, but not overwhelming. It turned to an oil very quickly in my hands, and was absorbed by my hair very quickly. I will say, my hair is pretty long at the moment, so there was not enough in the sample to saturate all my hair, so I focused on the roots and ends where I notice the most frizz. Before styling, I was a little unsure if I noticed a difference, but after blow-drying its effectiveness was very clear. My hair felt incredibly soft and supple, and I noticed a reduction in the little frizzy fly-aways I usually see around my part after styling.

Made my hair soft, but scent is not for me

The product was unique in terms of consistency, watching it go from solid to liquid was interesting, but it was a little tricky to apply to dry hair, I had a hard time getting it evenly distributed. At first, the scent seemed to be coffee, but the longer the product was on, I started to smell a combination of coffee and cigarettes, which was not pleasant at all. After 20 minutes, I needed 2 shampoos to wash the oil out completely, but when it was all done, my hair did seem softer.

Great product!

I really liked this product. I used it when my hair was particularly dry. It made it feel healthy and soft. Be careful not to use too much though because it can weigh down finer hair.

Not for me
Sampled

This was definitely not for me. The smell was horrendous and reminiscent of the morning after a bar crawl- stale cigarettes. The treatment left my hair stringy and greasy. I had to flat iron my hair so it didn't look so mangy. I'll pass, thanks.

Good product, it smells great. Full size is a bit too expensive when I already have a similar product that works well.
