PRODUCT REVIEW - OJON Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo & Conditioner

This review has been a long time coming. I've been using Ojon's  Damage Reverse Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner since earlier this year when I received a free sample from Sephora (that was a genius marketing offer!) yet somehow I didn't think to do a Review for my beauty blog.  Actually I've neglected reviewing any haircare products so this is my first Haircare Product Review! I have to say that I'm really in love with this shampoo and conditioner.

My hair is very dry and I need products that don't strip away my natural oils and is gentle on my tightly curled hair. Every day, sun, pollution, coloring, heat styling, diet, stress and the natural aging process do a serious number on hair. This shampoo and conditioner is fortified with Ojon oil - "nature’s golden elixir" and helps to mend, strengthen and restore shine to even the most damaged hair. Ojon oil is also rich in essential lipids similar to those in unprocessed, virgin hair. Found only in the rainforests of Central America, harvested and extracted by hand from the nuts of Ojon tree, Ojon oil is an amazing beauty secret used for centuries to restore perfect health and vitality to hair "broken by the blazing sun". 

I first tried Ojon's hair treatment years ago when it first debuted on QVC.  The conditioner worked amazing on my dry hair but it smelled awful! Everytime I moved my head it smelled as if I had treated my hair with was way too earthy and pungent! And to make it even worse the smell lingered for days...I eventually gave it away even though it cost $50 even back then. Luckily Ojon has worked out its fragrance issues while maintaining the jungle "magic".  The Sephora website describes the Damage Reverse™ Restorative line of product's fragrance as a "creamy, sweet aroma of Tonka Bean, Vetiver and Benjoin" but I just call it delicious!

OJON - Damage Reverse™ Restorative Shampoo ($24)
This luxurious golden gel fortified with nature's golden elixir, Ojon oil, wheat proteins, and creamy coconut-derived cleansers transforms into a rich lather that helps repair damaged hair in the shower. The formula smooths ruffled cuticles and unwinds tangles to prevent breakage.
OJON - Damage Reverse™ Restorative Conditioner ($25)
This lush, concentrated conditioning balm surrounds dry, brittle hair with nourishing lipids including Ojon oil, nature's golden elixir, antioxidant-rich Brazilian Buriti Oil, and Murumuru Butter, helping to seal in vital moisture and create the perfect buffer against daily damage.

What I also like is that Ojon's Damage Reverse™ Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Phthalates
- Triclosan

For any of you ladies with dry, damaged or brittle hair I highly recommend that you give Ojon's Damage Reverse™ Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner a try.  I'm extremely picky when it comes to my hair care products but this Ojon duo makes it to the top of my list. And for Sephora's V.I.B. Holiday Shopping Event, which starts this Thursday, Nov 10th and ends Mon. Nov. 14th, I'll be purchasing the Ojon  Restorative Hair Treatment. If it's as good as the shampoo and conditioner then I'm sure I'll love it too!
