As an excessive hair extensions wearer, I need to make sure that my hair is regularly taken care of. Many of you may know that I’m trying to grow my to resemble Rupunzel. This requires a lot of love and attention to my hair. My hair is a 4C pattern meaning my hair has an extremely tight curl, and sometimes get lost within each other. This is why I don’t leave it out as one day I can leave my home with Cousin IT hair (let me dream lol) and return home looking like Sonique. Welcome to stubborn world of shrinkage.
Back to the real reason why you are here. Last weekend I took down my hair extensions, and washed my hair with Organic Root Stimulator Uplifting Shampoo to remove any build up of oil and grease that didn’t penetrating into my hair shaft. This shampoo is quite stripping so I only use it one a month followed by a deep conditioner to restore moisture.
I love trying new products especially hair products which means I’m automatically labelled the overused term; product junkie. As I like to change my products as often as my underwear this time around I tried Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner as I’ve heard some good things about Ojon. The packaging says it’s for dry and damaged hair, so I’d say if you’re someone who has chemically coloured or relaxed hair, this might be worth a try.
Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner is a dual-phase hair treatment which consists of three butters and seven oils which are:
- Ojon Oil penetrates the hair shaft to repair and seal the cuticle and helps to build up hair’s natural resistance to future damage.
- Indian Kokum is rich in essential lipids, is known for its nourishing properties and is traditionally used to hydrate skin and condition hair.
- Brazil Murumuru Butter contains oleic acid that helps retain moisture in skin and hair and gives a healthy shine to damaged or over-processed hair
- African Shea Butter is high in vitamins A and E and provides essential nutrients that help strengthen and hydrate hair.
- Rouge Oleifera helps protect while reducing flyaways and adding shine and manageability.
- Tahitian Monoi Oil protects the air and adds shine.
There is something about this conditioner that reminds me of the creamy filling of Cadburys Creme Eggs. The conditioner has two colours; (pictured below) an off white color, to make the hair soft and the yellow colour to nourish, repair and condition the hair.
My hair felt amazingly soft after detangling my hair. I was surprised that it left my hair this soft because when applied it felt I hadn’t applied to anything in my hair. Low and behold the results was a perfectly blow dried fro. A friend was at mine when doing my hair regime. When she put her hands through my hair, she said my hair was ultra soft.
