Admittedly, I did not buy this. I took it from my mothers bathroom earlier in the month because my own ran out - but I did give it back eventually (and half empty!).
I had never really suffered with bad hair until I began to dye it. Darker didn't do much but when I began my blonde process its become so ruined I'm wondering why I ever dyed it in the first place! My mother also suffers from the same issue as she has been white blonde for the last 35 years. Her hair is now very thin and damaged hence her buying of products like this.
As you can see, the product comes in a long thin bottle. It is quite thick plastic which first made me wonder how much liquid there was for the price we paid - but a little goes a long way as you will read in a minute.
The shampoo bottle is slightly opaque but you can still see the liquid inside and the conditioner bottle is almost completely transparent. It makes it easy to tell the two apart from a distance in the bath/shower.
The lid of the bottle is brown and clear, it flips so that it is easy to close and open. I have a hatred for screw top shampoo/conditioner because when your hands are wet it is semi-impossible to open! But luckily this one is very simple and causes no frustration. Although, I find sometimes more of the product ends up in the lid as it doesn't flip completely open.
I originally didn't like the scent as it is quite woody and organic. It still lingers on my hair the next day and I have been complimented on it by friends sat next to me at college (they caught a waft!). It also stayed in my bathroom due to the steam which was nice as I didn't need to spray anything.
Using the product
When my hair was wet, I put a tiny amount no bigger than a 20 pence on my hand then smoothed and massaged it into my hair. The product lathered up well and the fragrance was instant. Normally expensive products don't lather as it is a trait to cheaper products so you think your hair is being cleaned better.
I then proceeded to use the matching conditioner and rinsed both out. After drying my hair, it felt so soft and nourished. My friend cuts and colours my hair and she even noticed a difference. Quite glad that it is getting better because I was getting sick of putting my hair up every day.
I love that the product is also 100% natural so I am not rubbing anything bad into my hair. I hate knowing I'm using loads of chemicals. The liquid is quite thick and creamy so it doesn't run off your hands and all over the place, its quite neat and tidy.
The bottle has lasted in my home for a good few months now purely down to the fact that you do not need much in your hair for it to go a long way. I would advise making sure it is completely washed out as it can leave patches greasy. I find that my crown gets bad sometimes if I don't scrub it out, as the shampoo is thick.
Price & Availability
Whilst watching QVC over last Christmas (which she never does so this was a lucky visit), my mum saw the Ojon range. Previously neither of us had heard of the brand but we are now very fond of their products. This shampoo comes in a pack along with the conditioner for £34. There are also others which are good for improving damaged hair if you check the Ojon website (or eBay and Amazon).
Admittedly it is a lot to spend on a product if you aren't sure whether it will benefit you, but this has lived up to expectations well. The fact it lasts a long time means I didn't spend my usual up to £10 a month on shampoo and conditioner from the high street - the price of buying high street each month adds up to the same as the Ojon products if you think of the life span of Ojon.
