Review: Ojon Damage Reverse
Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo & Conditioner
Price: $24 & $25
For years I was afraid to color my hair for fear of damaging my natural locks. Little did I know that I was doing worse damage by washing and re-wetting and everyday blow drying. Ojon has taught me that everyday washing actually breaks down part of the hair leaving it weaker. Then factor in the heat styling, products, diet, stress, the sun, and other pollutants and you’re just playing with fire. Ojon’s founder Dennis Simioni just happened to stumble upon the key ingredient to their products, an oil made from the seeds of the “Ojon” tree. He set out to learn more and bring this elixir home. Once formulated they began testing it and realized the oil actually mimicked the essential lipids found in unprocessed, virgin hair! Ojon has now grew to incorporate this oil into 6 different hair rituals.
I had the pleasure to try their Damage Reverse line recently and to share my thoughts with you. The shampoo was very mild, so if you’re used to getting that squeaky feeling after you shampoo you may need to adjust to this one. I found it was great for my thinner strands! The conditioner was really thick and a little went a long way. This may be the first time EVER that I did not use all the conditioner up before the shampoo even came close, I know you know what I’m talking about! Even though this conditioner was thick it never once weighed my hair down. After 3 weeks of use I noticed an overall improvement with my hair. It felt soft and healthy, a little shinier, and I noticed less was coming out during washing so it was definitely getting stronger.
I think one of the best things about this shampoo and conditioner, and I’m sure it goes for all their products, is the amount of time spent doing them was virtually cut in half. The actual act of rinsing took seconds, so you get in and out with as little water necessary. Love it!
