They say there’s a sucker born every minute. When it comes to hair care products – I’m that sucker.
Over and over I run out and buy the latest miracle product guaranteed to make my hair manageable, shiny and healthy.
Over and over I’m disappointed.
Even worse, I could have probably bought a new Mercedes with all the money I’ve spent on hair crap that didn’t work for my fine, bone-dry, shedding, relaxed, colored hair.
So when I heard the host on QVC hawking Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment, I was more than skeptical.
“It’s natural,” the host says, flashing a toothy grin.
“Yeah, right,” I reply to my television. “I’ve got a cabinet full of all natural flops.”
So while they prattled on about the virtues of this wonder conditioner, I dialed the number on the screen to order. (I warned you I was a hair care product sucker, didn’t I?)
One treatment and I feel like I’ve been kissed by the Hair Gods. I can’t stop touching my soft, sleek, shiny, moisturized hair. And the shedding that accompanies my relaxer touch up and semi-permanent hair color has come to an abrupt halt.
I can’t say enough good things about this treatment.
Ojon was my first experience with a pre-shampoo deep conditioner. I slathered it on dry hair (a little goes a long way) and covered my head with a plastic cap. I wrapped my head in a scarf and kept the treatment on overnight. The next morning, my stylist took over. She rinsed and shampooed out the Ojon; then conditioned, wrapped and styled my hair.
She loved the results as much as I did. She didn’t have to spend 20 minutes piling tons of crap on my hair and beating it into submission, giving her more time to smoke cigarettes and talk on her cell phone.
While I opted to leave the treatment in overnight, it can be left in for as little as 10 minutes. It can also be applied in smaller amounts as a leave-in conditioner or shine enhancer.
The burnt coffee scent may be a turn-off to some, but it doesn’t bother me. It contains several ingredients including, 100% pure Ojon palm nut oil, natural anti-oxidants, natural preservatives and fragrance.
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment is available at iqvc.com and Sephora in various sizes. Prices range from $21 to $55.
