Ojon Damage Reverse Shampoo and Conditioner - Review


The Ojon Damage Reverse Shampoo and Conditioner was part of a  kit from  - yep you guessed - good old QVC (just for a change!) ...

If you're familiar with the Ojon range you'll know that Ojon Oil is known as 'nature's golden elixir'...
"Found only in the rainforests of Central America and harvested and extracted by hand from the nuts of the fragrant Ojon tree, this amazing beauty secret has been used for centuries to restore perfect health and vitality to "hair broken by the blazing sun"  (source )   
As well as Ojon Oil (of course), the shampoo contains wheat proteins and coconut derived cleansers which are said to help smooth, de-tangle and hydrate and the conditioner contains Brazilian Buriti Oil - rich in anti-oxidants and Murumuru Butter to help seal in moisture and protect against daily damage. 

Both the shampoo and conditioner have a light creamy texture but are concentrated so you only need a small amount.  The shampoo lathers well and rinses easily. The conditioner is nourishing but not heavy. The instructions advise to apply from root to tip and massage into the scalp, even the conditioner, which I've done with no greasy residue.  If you weren't a fan of the original Ojon Restorative hair treatment due to the aroma then I imagine you'd be pleasantly surprised as these both smell nothing like it and have a sweet/delicate, creamy/fresh smell (if that makes any sense!).

I do tend to leave the conditioner on for a bit longer (say 10/15 minutes?). It works well when rinsed off after the standard couple of mins but I want to give my hair all the help it can get so this feels more beneficial - especially when I have loads of colour in my hair. I look on this as more of a 'treatment' rather than everyday kit, but basically - I really like this shampoo and conditioner. I feel they nourish and strengthen and I notice less hair going down the plughole with a burst of continued use. My hair is difficult but these two leave it softer, shiny and more manageable.

I'd be interested to see what the long term effect would be on my ageing hair if I used 'Damage Reverse' as my 'everyday' shampoo and conditioner but unfortunately at full price they're too expensive to buy alone - between £21-£23each/250ml, although there are offers usually on at QVC (I love QVC!).

Have you tried any products from the Ojon Damage Reverse range?

  1. These do sound lovely - my hair is so dry at the ends . My hairdresser left colour on for far too long a little while back and it's not been the same since :( I am trying all sorts of damage repair deep conditioners! xx

    1. I do like this duo Claire - I'm really trying to stop my hair drying at the ends too. I have a plethora of deep conditioners! xx

  2. I really want to try some Ojon, and as I've literally just run out of all-things haircare I think now might be the time, I hear consistently good stuff about it and still have quite dry ends to contend with.

    1. Thanks Mel - still a bit of tweaking to do but I'm getting there! Ojon do some lovely products - there are still loads I want to try! xx

    2. I tried the Ojon Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy (the one with 3 layers that you shake together) after reading rave reviews. For some reason, it didn't really do anything to my hair. I couldn't tell I had anything in it.

      I will definitely give these a try. My hair is super fine, but very dry on the ends.

      Love your blog layout!
