With Claims of being the BB cream for hair I just had to try Ojon's new Rare Blend Deep Conditioner(£29.00) for myself and see if the hype was warranted. So basically Rare Blend DC is a Intensive conditioner that nourishes, softens and promotes shiny hair with a blend of 7 oils which include Ojon™ Oil, Brazilian muru muru, and Indian kokum butters this penetrates hair to remedy even very dry hair (that's me them!) Rare Blend DC also seals hair cuticle to lock in moisture, replenishes lost lipids ( group of naturally occurring molecules...who knew!) to repair and protect hair and is a daily treatment that boosts shine and tames frizz and flyaways....so like BB cream it covers a lot of bases.
B E N E F I T S
Known as "nature's hair-repairing golden elixir", this 500-year-old beauty secret from the rainforests of Central America is rich in essential lipids similar to those in unprocessed hair.
The rich, red coloured pulp of the Ojon nut has been shown to contain highly concentrated antioxidants. It helps reverse damage to hair follicles and restore shine, softness and strength to hair.
Tahitian Monoi Oil
This rare nourishing coconut oil from Tahiti infused with fresh Tiare flowers is extremely rich in essential lipids. Its non-affinity to water gives it its unique protective property.
Tahitian Kukui Oil
Extracted from resilient Kukui Trees in French Polynesia, this oil contains moisture-securing properties that help keep hair looking hydrated and full of high-gloss shine.
African Marula Oil
This precious oil from South Africa is rich in nutritious proteins, minerals and contains active antioxidants to help protect hair from future damage.
Used by women from Namibia to Zimbabwe, it’s prized for its power to soften coarse hair and smooth rough skin.
Kalahari Desert Oil
Sourced from the seeds of the watery Kalahari melon, it contains antioxidants, essential nutrients and protein-binders that help nourish and repair hair.
I used Ojon Rare Blend DC after using Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative hair treatment to dry de-tangle, I used black soap to cleanse and followed this with Ojon Rare Blend DC. the Black soap leaves my hair super clean and always needs a rich conditioner after use Ojon Rare Blend DC felt amazing on my hair straight away! I used a generous dollop and smoothed it into my hair (as directed) and left for 2 minutes (though personally I think my hair type would have benefited from longer!) This products goes on really well it's quite thick yet it easily smooths into hair. After two minutes I rinsed off with luke warm water. I usually judge how moisturising a conditioner is by how defined my curls are after using, with the Ojon Rare Blend DC my hair was relatively coily. This was a good conditioner my hair felt better than it usually does after I use a rinse out conditioner but I still needed a good helping of leave in conditioner (Soultanicals Knot Sauce) and sealant (Soultanicals Loc-N-roll, Twist & Fro Out) applied but Ojon was a good base.
I'm going to try and tweak how I use this product for the purpose of the first review I used as directed however I think with a few adjustments I could really get down with this product! I'm definitely going to leave it on for longer than 2 minutes and I may try it as a leave in as I have a feeling it may work well. I'll post the results of that experiment next week!
Ojon Rare Blend is a good quality product that would work great for relaxed hair types as I think it would really promote shine. I'm a huge fan of Ojon Damage Reverse Restorative hair treatment (it's my favourite pre poo) and I'd love to try the Rare Blend Oil as I think it would work great for afro hair.
