As Rapunzel undoubtedly knows, the longer you grow your hair, the more maintenance it needs. Although mine isn’t long enough to fling out of a tower and support a dashing prince, it’s still way past shoulder length, and I’ve noticed the ends becoming ever more frazzled even with regular trims. The constant blow-drying, straightening and all round styling have made them feel and look dry, and therefore appear frizzy. I’ve tried various hair healers, but many of them although described as ‘nurturing’ and ‘enriching’ simply overload the hair. And where’s the joy in trying to style hair that acts like a pair of heavily embroidered curtains?
Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum had my hair hooked from the first use. For starters it’s a lightweight serum that can be used daily without fear of overload. It didn’t even leave a greasy film on the palms of my hands. Applying two drops onto damp hair just before styling, it really does leave my hair feeling incredibly conditioned. Furthermore, the ends far from looking fragile look positively robust thanks to cuticles seemingly being temporarily sealed. Not one to overlook a good thing, I even use a modest amount as a finishing product for high shine. It smells gorgeous too – sweet Tonka Bean and Vetiver mingle together beautifully.
All of Ojon’s hair products are sourced with what is called nature’s golden elixir – oil from the native Ojon tree in the tropical rain forests of
Central America. But after years of researching, they’ve discovered a new ingredient for injured hair called Rouge Oleifera extract. This is extracted from the fruit that surrounds each Ojon nut and boasts a high concentration of antioxidants – just the armour to protect hair from sun damage, heat styling and chemical exposure. Not available until September, make a note, as it will be just the hair rehab you’ll be looking for post sun, sea and swimming pool damage.
Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum, £22 will be available at Harrods, John Lewis and Fenwick stores nationwide in September.
