This, along with it's butt buddy, the Restorative Hair Treatment, are going straight back to beauty.com. Like I said about the RHT, I could handle my hair being weighed down if, and only if, I thought this was doing something beneficial for my hair. Unfortunately weighed down and greasy comes with other friends as well, like damaged, frizzy, and staticky. How on earth you get static and grease? Ask Ojon, I think they may have a scientific revelation on their hands.
I give this 5 stars because it actually DID something. I noticed an actual difference after using a few drops on my dry hair, followed by straightening. It was SO soft and stayed that soft for days. So impressed.
I bought this product from Ulta and I really notice a difference in my hair when I use it. Hair is more vibrant, shiny, manageable, and feels stronger. I went for a couple weeks with out using it and I can for sure say that this product works. I really like the unique dropplet applicator, but I decided to buy a mini spray bottle because I do prefer a mist. I went back to Ulta and the stylist informed me that this product is popular with African American people, and I have straight asian hair, so overall this product is very versatile.
Smells like leaves and nature to me.. I like it and it works great!
My fine, wavy, colored hair tends to be too dry. This oil has made a difference. My hair needs less since I cut back on shampooing frequency and started using Shea Moisture in the shower. I still use about 4 drops when I shampoo. The two products work well together for me.
What a terrible product I put this in damp towel dried hair before blow drying. I only put a few drops in in the ends of my hair never near the roots. I couldn't understand why parts of my hair were taking ages to dry when i realised it was dry but terribly greasy looking from the damn oil ! never putting this stuff near my hair again i have tried it a few times always with the same result so in the bin it goes. I will revert back to my much loved Moroccan oil.
I have big/thick/frizzy/dry/damaged hair. So as you can imagine it's a big nightmare.
I went to a Sephora and asked to try a sample of the Ojon oil. I liked it so much I went back and bought a bottle. Do note that I bought the small bottle and after two full months I'm maybe about a quarter done. A little will go a long way.
I'll half my hair (a left and a right side). While still wet I'll use about 5-6 drops on each side then blow dry my hair (I use a high quality T3 which I'm sure does affect things). I'll then add another 3 drops to each side for some extra smoothing.
I love the results. It leaves my hair soft and smooth and really gets rid of alot of the bulk. It also lets me get away with not having to flat iron which is something I always had to do to make my hair somewhat manageable.
This product is one of my very few holy grail items. I've tried the other hair oils and did not like them as much as the Ojon.
If your hair is already in good condition then this is not for you. It is only for those who have very dry hair.
A little backround on my hair/story:
I have very thin hair for a 25 year old. Back in December I stupidly bleached my natural hair, and after a while it resulted in a ton of breakage. I then (stupidly) thought that if I dyed it brown, it would look better. Wrong. I then thought that chopping off all my hair would work. Wrong again. So there I was, a failed, brunette pixie cut that looked fried and scruffy (that was my nickname at work, scruffy). My bangs were literally a fried flap of hair. Even after a haircut, my hair would still look like garbage.
One day I walked into ULTA, as I do about every 2 weeks. I'm constantly looking for SOMETHING to make my hair look normal again. That day I optimistically told myself that there had to be something in the store that would work.
I stumbled across the Ojon damage reverse. I was a little put off by the price, especially considering I didn't do any research on the product before hand. It's about $25 for a small bottle of the stuff. I was hesitant, but I liked how it said that it worked on contact and works to reverse previous damage. I ended up buying it and trying it right after I got out of the store. I put it over my fried ends, and while it did not automatically make my hair appear better, it felt a little better.
The next day I washed my hair and put the serum on right after. I haven't been able to heat style my hair in months, but after putting this stuff on I was able to lightly blow dry my hair. After washing my hair, the change was instant. My hair looks normal now. The fried ends are practically gone, my bangs look normal again.
I've tried everything from expensive $90 serums to the drug store crap. None have worked like this.
Hands down, a HG hair product. I'm very grateful to have found a product that gave me my confidence back. And to think I was hesitant about it at first!
Edit: I've been using this product for approximately 1 month and a half. I found that it has the potential to make my hair look greasy when used in the wrong places. For example, I have to keep it predominantly off of my bangs, or else they will stick together and make it look like I have less hair. Still totally pleased with the product though.
Edit edit! I have since stopped using this product, and use the liquid reconstruct prodct from the Joico K-pac line. It works the same without weighing down my hair like the serum did.
I got this few months ago in my UK GlossyBox, and I have to say I love it! I use it every day, this really helps my frizzy ends look better. I like to wave my hair with my straighteners, then I use this 'serum' to run though my hair. It makes my hair look so shiny and healthy! I say 'serum' as its quite runny, but a little goes a long way. I have no idea how much this costs, I don't think I will need to find out for a long while as this bottle is lasting me ages - I have hardly made a dent in it since I received it. I also love it as it doesn't weigh my fine hair down, which is fab as most serums do just that, they can make my hair look limp. Not this stuff!
Meh. Nothing special. There are plenty of oil products out there these days that do just as good a job, if not better, for a lot cheaper.
I really wanted to love this serum but sadly not.
The serum smells divine, the pipet is very annoying to use, i would prefer a pump or to just measure it out myself.
The actual serum is very concentrated and i found that even a few drops applied to my mid lengths and ends made my hair feel like an oil slick when it was dry, even to the extent that i had to re wash it as it felt so greasy.
I haven't completely given up on the serum, when i watched the QVC video on it, the man selling it said that the serum could also be used as a booster for the accompanying conditioner, so i squeezed out some conditioner onto my hand and then mixed in a few drops of the serum, creating a treatment conditioner so all is not lost.
I think this serum is only suitable for people with severely dry/damaged hair as the hair will soak it up and not leave it sitting on it like mine.
