This week I'm obsessed with... Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Plus!

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Plus - 100ml - $37 - a rich balm that melts into a nourishing serum to make it easy to spread through dry hair to repair cuticle damage, instantly restore hydration and shine and strengthen hair to help prevent future breakage. Contains: Ojon Oil - rich in essential lipids which penetrates deep within the hair shaft to repair and seal the cuticle and helps to build up hair's natural resistance to future damage and restores the look and feel of virgin hair; and Rouge Oleifera - extracted from the fruit that surrounds each Ojon nut and has a high concentration of antioxidants and essential lipids.

So I'm just going to put this out there - I stopped using the Ojon treatment several years ago because I just couldn't stomach the smell - I had a hard time putting a finger on exactly what it smelled like, the closest comparison I can come up with is slightly rancid peanut butter and since the smell was interfering with my enjoyment of peanut butter cups I had to make a choice - obviously chocolate and peanut butter won, duh! Not to say I didn't like the results, it really was an awesome treatment but part of beauty treatments is the sensory enjoyment of them and my nose was not loving it no matter how good my hair looked afterwards! So when I heard that Ojon had changed the scent I was so hopeful that I would be able to have the treatment I loved without the stench. I'm happy to report that the new scent is very light and totally unoffensive! My hair is soft and silky and birds are no longer attracted to it, all is right with the world!

Here's how you use it: just scoop out a teaspoon or so into the palm of your hand and warm it by rubbing it between your hands until it becomes an oil then you just run it through your hair and scalp and repeat those steps until your hair is fully saturated. Then you comb it though and let it penetrate for 20 minutes before washing it out. For very damaged hair you can use the heat from a hairdryer on low for 5 minutes, leave it on overnight or my special trick when my hair looks fried is to pop a plastic bag on my head and look like a dork for a couple of hours - when I wash it off, hair nirvana!

  1. New scent?! I am so with you, I hated the original Ojon scent & wouldn't re-purchase based on that alone. In fact I gave the shampoo & conditioner away I hated it that much. I'm going to have to give this the sniff test before I consider it again.
