Wow, I'm surprised at the low ratings. I've been searching for a while for a good styling cream to put in my damp hair that will air dry well. This is the best I have found so far. Not perfect, but pretty good. I have very fine hair, and this does not weigh it down - which is why I give it a high rating! It moisturizes, tames frizzies, and in general makes my hair more manageable. It does not give any definition though - I feel it's more for moisturizing and less for styling. And the real reason I take a lippie off: the smell! Ewww, it smells like old cigarette smoke! like clothes full of stale smoke, eek. I think that is just how the Ojon oil smells. but I do not want that smell on my hair! So it defeats the purpose and makes this oil useless as a hair product in my opinion.

I'm not sure why there are so many negative reviews on this product, but I love it! It makes my hair looks healthy and shiny, and since I use really cheap hot rollers, my hair usually curls with lots of frizz. However, after putting this product in my hair is smooth yet the curls stay intact. The smell is like oatmeal, it's not that bad it's actually kind of nice. It is really strong, though. Get a sample of this product and give it a try because it worked wonders on me!

My hair has taken on this dry, coarse quality lately and we've pinpointed it to a thyroid problem. Trying to get that under control is one thing, but my hair was a bigger concern as I generally have smooth silky curls and this dryness was causing me great distress. My hair guy suggested I get this line of products and I love it! Been using the shampoo, conditioner, hydrating style cream & restorative hair treatment and can say my hair is back to it's normal shininess. I love the smell of the Ojon line, makes me think of my yoga studio and that makes me happy - a very fresh woodsy natural scent. Ojon products aren't inexpensive to buy but a tiny bit of product goes a long way. I highly recommend and will definitely repurchase!! I also use Moroccan Oil about 4 times x week and it's a lifesaver as well!!

Oh my! I HATE this product!!! I used it the other day and it made my hair feel like I had rubbed paste into it. After blow drying, my hair looked like one big solid as you could not identify individual hair strands. Also, I had difficulty running my fingers through my hair because it was so sticky/gloppy. Finally, this made my hair look "big" as if I had put in a thickening agent which was disappointing because I thought this product would smooth my hair and make it look sleeker. I was so upset with how my hair turned out that I had to wash and dry my hair a second time - and the result is that my hair is out of control from over-washing.
At first I blamed myself and thought that I had put way too much product in. However, other reviewers stated that they also had sticky hair from this product and one reviewer in particular said that she got the same result no matter how little product she put in. Thus, I won't be giving this product a second try because I just can't deal with the same sort of horrid results all over again.
Finally, I did not think this product was user-friendly at all. I did not like the fact that I had to rub the cream between my palms in order to dissolve the microbeads. This was time consuming and once I was done rubbing I had difficulty telling how much product was in my hands. Also, I had to wash my hands twice in order to clean off all the sticky residue from my palms. And get this: I just noticed last night that the bristles on my brush are coated with this stuff. I am not looking forward to having to clean it . Finally, I did not like the pump because the lip on the pump did not extend far enough so I kept having to tilt the bottle in order to get it into my palm.
For $30 this product was ridiculous and I will be retuning it this weekend.

I picked up a trial size tube of this (along with the Ojon Glossing Leave-in Cream) at Sephora. I was looking for a styling cream to use on wet hair before air drying, something with a little hold and hopefully some moisturizing qualities. This product is not it! I didn't use much, and yet my hair still felt gunky and coated (plus it looked very dull). I had the same issues with the Glossing Leave-in Cream, although that one actually worked alright as a pre-heat styling product. I tried using the Hydrating Styling Cream before air drying and before blowdrying. Both ways, it was a disappointment. And also I feel the need to address the smell. I am usually not too picky about smells, and I tend to like the "earthy" scents of Aveda or other Ojon products. But this one is just plain terrible. It smells like dirt. And sometimes I detect a small undertone of something sweet - like they tried to make the dirt smell less offensive. Only it only makes it worse. It really is a nearly nauseating smell that I couldn't wait to wash out of my hair. Yuck.
If you are looking for a smoothing and moisturizing styling cream like I was, a much better option is Paul Mitchell's the Cream. I use the generic from Sallys and love the results. Another cheaper alternative is Garnier Smoothing Milk. Much better product for a much smaller price.
Bottom line: Overpriced gunkiness with a terrible smell. Pass on this one.

I really like this product as it is the only thing that tames my hair. I have very fine, straight, long hair and it has numerous issues with flyaways. I've tried using many other products which only made it greasy, oily, and/or crunchy. This doesn't do any of that! It makes my hair soft, smooth and shiny. Awesome! The only problem I have with this product is its smell - i wish it was better as it reeks of mud or something like that. Good thing i only use a pea size. I warm it up in my palms and apply it on damp hair, only at the ends (it may get too rich/greasy for the roots/scalp, so i avoid applying it there). Then I let it air dry. In addition to the downfall of the smell of the product, it is also quite pricey at $35 Cdn (before taxes). EDIT: Returned it because I couldn't stand the smell of this product. I don't want my hair smelling bad.

I personally love this product. I have thick hair that gets very full after blow drying it. This helps with shine and style. It is just important to not use too much of it. I will be buying my 2nd bottle today.

I had such high hopes for this product, but it's HORRIBLE! And the smell is AWFUL! Ugh! I would have forgiven the smell if only the product made up for it in spectacular performance. I did everything the instructions said to do, and still my hair ended up dry and frizzy, and not to mention - stinky! Thankfully I only received a small sample sized product, so I don't feel bad for throwing this in the garbage where it belongs.

This smells like old women and does nothing for my hair but make it look greasy.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
This product is excellent if used before you flat iron/blowdry. It leaves your hair very soft and shiny. I have med thick slightly wavy/curly hair that gets poofy while it dries...I just wish I could wash, apply the creme and air dry.

I've been using this product for a while, and it keeps my curls looking nice. Before I received this as a gift, I only used mousse to give shape to my curls, and my hair was crunchy all the time. My hairdresser said to use a moisturizing product before the mousse to cut down on frizz and crunch. Since using this product, I've noticed a decrease in each. I was out in very windy weather today, and my hair got tousled but not frizzy. If you have super curly hair, you probably will need something stronger (my hair falls in soft corkscrews or ringlets depending on the weather), but it works well for me. In fact, I used this and no mousse for a softer effect today, and everyone's been telling me how great my hair looks. I also like the smell; it reminds me of a tropical island. :) The only major drawback is that is gets goopy at the bottom and doesn't come up the tube very well.

I am gonna try to keep this review short and to the point...this product is HORRID! I bought it yesterday at ULTA, and payed the hefty $30 + tax price tag knowing if I didn't like it I could return it. Usually I like to give a product about a week or 2 before I review it, but I figured best to write one now as that way hopefully it will save somebody from spending their hard earned cash on this stuff! This stuff is supposed to hydrate, lock in moisture, get rid of frizzies, all the while having some "hold" to your hairstyle as it a styling cream. It comes in a convenient pump bottle, as it is a cream that has tiny little beads of something in it. You are supposed to pump out a dime-sized amount, rub it in between your hands till the beads melt, then apply it to your damp hair starting at ends 1st. Well, I did just that, and automatically my hair felt sticky and I knew once it dried, I would not be able to comb through it. I have long, course hair. I waited till my hair air-dried and OMG, my hair had never been that frizzy in all my life! No lie or exaggeration! How could this be possible? I was so disappointed I immediately ran for my faithful FF Glossing Cream and tried to smooth my nasty hair out. This was my 1st Ojon product, and my last. I am not taking any more chances with my hair using this line. Weird thing also is that this is a cream, so it is thick. After I pumped some out onto my hand, the top 1/2 of the bottle turned liquidy on me. The bottom 1/2 was still thick, but the top was like water...maybe it was an old batch, I don't know, but what I do know is that this is not for me, and I am returning it tomorrow. I don't want to swap it away, as I wouldn't want what happened to my hair happen to anyone elses! Boo for this product! One lippie for the packaging ~ love those pump dispensers ;)

Although I like this product, I will not buy it again. I am convinced there are better products available. Perhaps I will have to return to my trusty Aveda styling products... Anyway, on to the review.
This product will give your hair shine and tame the frizzies. It will not "hold" very well, though. (I wanted a product that will do all 3: shine, tame, hold.) And if I apply too much to the top (ie. roots) of my head, my hair will be a greasy mess by the end of the day. So, I apply from the nape of my neck downwards only (my hair is quite long, so I am applying to *most* of my hair with this method). If I apply the product in this method, the shine and frizz taming is nice.
One drawback, I think, is the smell. Most of the Ojon products do not reek like the famed Restorative Hair Treatment. The shampoos and conditioners smell heavenly! But this product, the Hydrating Styling Cream, has some Restorative Hair Treatment encapsulated in the product (as little bubbles), and it lets off that horrid smell the RHT has. :(
Regardless, I will not re-purchase. But it is not a horrible product. There is a "travel-sized" version for $10, which is a good way to try this.

I saw the entire Ojon line late one night while watching QVC. As I'm an avid fan of makeup, beauty aids, skin care, bath products and hair care, I couldn't resist. Really...I couldn't. Well, I resisted long enough to see if I could get a better deal on Ebay...thank God for Ebay, because without it, I think many Ojon products would simply be beyond my means. Including shipping and handling, I spent 16.00 on Ebay for a new in package product. I absolutely LOVE this product. It's touted as a "styling cream", and I'm not sure it's best value is in it's styling properties, but in how it makes my hair look and feel. It doesn't FEEL like any styling cream I've ever used. My hair is soft, managable, shiny, and bouncy, but it doesn't seem to "hold" its shape any better. well...uhhh, but having said that, my hair looked better all day than it ever has, so maybe I'm just used to styling products that make your hair crunchy. This surely did not. The one drawback, hairwise, is that I seem to get oilier a bit faster...not much faster, but a bit, which makes SENSE as this contains OIL (duh Holly), and as my hair was DRY, adding oil would make it LESS dry, but would make it likely that I'd have to shampoo a bit sooner. I've heard some people say, however, that they can go LONGER between shampoos, and this hasn't been my experience with this product. However, I do believe the trade off is WELL worth it. I absolutely LOVED my hair on this product, and even at 30.00 I'd still buy it, but I'm cheap and like to get a deal where I can...more money to spend elsewhere, if you know what I mean. Absolutely well worth my purchase price of 16.00, and most likely worth 30.00. I have ordered the 3.8 oz size of the hair restorative to see if I can get even better results from the ojon oil...again, used Ebay and saved about 14.00 on the tub. I can not wait to try that too!

I bought this to use in my hair after it was styled for a little hold, but I cannot use it. Hated the way it made my hair look and feel. Gave it to my husband who has very short hair. But he'll use anything....
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Brown Eyes: Green
The beads don't "melt" easily, so it looks like you have those beads in your hair after you run your hands through it. This product doesn't do anything special to my hair. The entire Ojon line is geared towards people with unhealthy hair from the get-go...so if that's not you, these products won't work.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Yay! I found a hair cream that's hydrating but doesn't weight my hair down... it actually gives my hair volume! I really like the tropical exotic smell and I think the beads that get smashed to activate the ojon formula is really cool.
Even though I have short hair, I have dense fine hair and I use 2 or 3 pumps after I towel dry. I let my hair air dry and it comes out lookingly naturally beachy. Love it, love, love, love!!

I have normal hair that is slightly dry (from swimming pool chlorine), long, straight. I had purchased this product after being pursuaded by a sales rep at sephora. She testified that she herself uses it and it completely transformed her hair. So i figure, what the hey. NEVER AGAIN! Not only does it not do anything for my hair, it seems to dry it out and make it frizzy, but at the same time it feels oily and dirty. I could barely run my fingers through my hair. I tried varying the amount and how i used it (puting it on damp hair; dry hair; blow drying; letting it dry naturally; etc.). Even tried to use it just as a leave-in treatment. Same results. I was so disillusioned, I was ready to toss it out (i barely made a dent in the bottle and I'd paid the full 30 bucks for it). I ended up giving it to a co-worker who couldn't bare to let me throw it out. I live in Hawaii, so the climate is warm and humid most the time, and that might be a factor as to why the product doesn't work. Or maybe it's just me. I'm sure it's a great product (at 30 bucks a pop, it better be), but it's not for me. I'm currently using the frederic fekkai leave-in glossing cream and the results are much better.
