A bad hair day can be the fastest mood killer around. It’s one of those irksome things that can shake your confidence – not because anybody can really tell that you’re having a bad hair day, but because it creates a relentless frustration that dwells in all your thoughts, slowly beating down your reserve like Chinese Water Torture, haunting you until alas, you are able to do something about it. When my hair is damaged from all the heat and chemical processes, I become that bad hair day girl, and I hate it. I know that when my hair looks good, I feel good. And healthy, vibrant hair is always indicative of youth and vitality, what everyone wants sure enough. This week’s pick is one to make even the most brittle and damaged hair healthy and soft again, and is Ojon’s Restorative Hair Treatment.
Ojon’s Restorative Hair Treatment is a deep conditioner made from the oil of the Ojon tree, a plant species native to the Moskitia region of the Central American rainforest, whose indigenous people are known for their beautiful hair, which is protected from the sun and the elements by the Ojon oil. The oil comes in solid form and when warmed between the palms, turns into a luscious moisturizing hair conditioner. The oil has a unique fragrance, (which fades after a few hours) like that of chocolate, wood, and smoke, and is rubbed through the scalp and hair, and then later rinsed.
I LOVE this product because it works like nothing else out there. My hair incurs a lot of damage since I frequently use heated styling tools, and also due to the fact that it is highlighted and long with very few haircuts. The Ojon website states their clinical tests show:
• a 52% improvement in the condition of very dry, hair after just one use
• a 64% improvement when left on hair overnight
You will definitely notice an improvement in hair texture once you use the Ojon Restorative Treatment. It WILL NOT FIX SPLIT ENDS, nothing does except for cutting with very sharp hair cutting shears, but it will make the hair shaft a lot more flexible, shiny, and soft. It’s worth every penny and a little goes a long way. (My hair is down to my waist and I use about a teaspoon.) It’s all natural too, with limits on the annual harvest to protect the natural resource of the Ojon tree, and a portion of Ojon’s profits is donated to the indigenous people of Central America. It’s truly a beautiful story, for beautiful hair.
Cost: $21 for 1.35 oz. ($15.56 per oz.) and $55 for 5 oz. plus wooden comb ($11 per oz.)
