THIS IS FOR THE CONDITONER that goes with this shampoo as I can't see a listing for it. My first fling with Ojon. My friend swears my their masque but warned me that the products can vary. I got a generous 2oz trial size which was the bottle from hell - yes that's a 1 on the packaging - so irritating! I almost threw it again the shower screen. It stank like bin juice, that's beef #2. It did a good job at softening and hydrating my coarse, wavy hair. But didn't smooth, it didn't restore vitality or make it shine. Such a shame because the ingredients are lovely. Just as if I'd used an herbal-smelling thick drugstore conditoner. Plus you couldn't get it to distribute through your hair properly, so you would use too much of this. Overpriced/disappointing.
I finally caved & bought this cult fave after years of trying cheaper brands in the hope that I didn't need to spend on the original. No such luck! I've been using the trial size available from larger dept. stores that stock Bumble & B. Pricey, but worth it. I really enjoy this and thank it for restoring my hair confidence, as this gives me the wave and volume I had as a teenager. I've always been a devotee of beachy waves, anything with "tousled", "textured", "surfy", "beachy" in the title has my attention. Whereas I've used and liked the results that other sprays gave (eg. I like Tigi Totally Beachin'), this showed me what I was missing. None of the other salt sprays give me hair that actually looks like I've been in the sea, with enhanced messy, deconstructed curls. This also works as a general volume & texture spray for non-surf styles. Of course, any salt spray will dry the hair to some extent. But this actaully dries my hair far, far less than other brands. I use it with Moroccan Oil (on damp hair), spraying by section then combing, tousling with fingers and adding a few finger twirls. Perfect, and the using the Morr. Oil first eliminates dryness for me. I do use a heavier conditoner after a day with this but that's fine, no longer term damage as with other brands. I don't find it leaves me with matted, gunked-up hair as some have done. It really is just what I've wanted from surf sprays so I'm impressed.The spray nozzle distributes fine mist superbly, getting the product easily through hair without having to use too much - a big plus for me.
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - physiological micellar solution

If this was better at getting off mascara, and was half the price, it would be HG material. Readily available on the UK high street from a brand I trust to perform and not cause problems. The packaging looks high-end, mixing luxe and laboratory. Its' clear bottle emphasises that you're using a cleansing "water" with a great dispenser top. It leaves my skin feeling clean, fresh and hydrated. Never dry, taut or irritated and no residue. I feel it leaves my natural oils and lipid barrier intact. I can just whip over with this and not have to wash, rinse or tone/prep. I love that it's soap, alcohol, paraben and colourant free. La Roche Posay products always seem to work beautifully with my skin rather than against it. I would love this if I didn't need to use such a on my cotton pad. It doesn't remove eye makeup to my standards. I wouldn't mind so much if it contained 500ml rather than 200ml for £12. It's something I will keep in use for certain situations. It's perfect for a quick morning freshen up, or if I need to remove a bit of product and continue. I enjoy using it, but I can't really afford to have it as my main cleanser. I recommend their Physiological cleansing gel - not as fuss free but gives much more bang for your buck and comparable if not better results.
