Ojon Hair Products

ojon hair productsOjon, a line of hair products, screams scrumptious.  I love that there is a real story behind this line of exclusive hair products including shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.  Ojon is inspired by rare palm nut oil found in the tropical Ojon tree.  For over 500 years the Miskito Indians, living on the lowlands along the Caribbean coast, have been using this rich Ojon oil as their secret to their beautiful hair and skin.  This unique tree grows only in the rainforest of the Mosquitia region of Central America.  The Miskito Indians are referred to as Tawira Indians, which means “the people of beautiful hair”. 

Still to this day the Tawira Indians still harvest and extract this rare Ojon oil as they have done for centuries.  Can you believe that!  Good for you Ojon. Sustaining the tribe and the natural environment is a very important step in sustaining the globe. Product review to come soon!  To learn more about Ojon view this incredible video.

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade

Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming PomadeThe Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade was a complete life savor!  A few weeks ago I received a very “interesting” hairstyle; nice on paper but very difficult to style.  Sounds familiar?  Of course I got this “interesting” haircut right before a major formal event.  I was sitting in my bathroom with flat iron, hair dryer, and spray on hand.  I blew my hair completely dry.  Then I flat ironed it.  OMG!.  The hairstylist decided to cut bangs and major layers.  My hair looked like a bird’s nest with strands and bangs just doing their own thing. 

With hair in disarray, I started searching for something anything that could transform this mess into beautiful silky strands!  Ah ha!  I found it, the Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade in the back of my hubbie’s cabinet.  It spoke to me.  Although a quote on quote men’s product could pomade work for me?  Definitely!

I opened the jar and smelled the fresh fragrance of tea tree oil.  Very refreshing.  I took a dollop size amount and rubbed between my hands.  Not too much just enough.  I started with the bangs and then went from the tops of my hair down.  It really worked.  I placed all of the whacked out strands in its place while giving my hair incredible shine!  Let’s just say I got tons of glowing comments about my hair that night.  Thanks Paul Mitchell!

BioSilk Silk Therapy – I’m a Believer

BioSilk Silk TherapyBioSilk Silk Therapy has all the makings of a true cult favorite. Already well known in the beauty industry for its impressive silk-ifying performance, BioSilk Silk Therapy has come to be a famous favorite product of hairstyling divas everywhere. Why? Because it works so well. Good answer.

BioSilk Silk Therapy works amazingly well with the excessive temperature of flat irons and curling irons. I’d even suggest picking up a bottle if you just use a hair dryer, hey, even if you air dry naturally your hair can reap the benefits of this silky wonder liquid – it’s great on split ends! But if you really, really want to see it in action, try it with a heat appliance.

With a product like this, especially if you’re a newbie, I suggest that less is more. Really, a few tiny drops are all you need for silky smooth perfection. After you get used to it, you can use more, but it’s so concentrated you really don’t need much, I promise.

After applying a few drops, turn on your hair dryer…you’ll see. You can almost feel it working as the temperature gets hotter, activating the silk proteins that penetrate your hair. Your hair is silky and soft. Not droopy. None of that ‘too soft’ hair that just sits there flat and limp. BioSilk makes your hair is soft and lively. Yes, I said lively.

Are you in love with your flat iron? Then try a few more drops on dry hair and then crank up your hair straightener. You will swear you feel BioSilk, adding protection to your strands each time the flat iron plates glide down your strands of hair. And, the texture of Silk Therapy is ideally lightweight, never greasy, so it won’t weigh your hair down. No one likes the greasy look. But then you already knew that.

BioSilk Silk Therapy is created from concentrated pure silk and fortified with botanical extracts and Vitamins E and B to help smooth and reconstruct the hair while strengthening it from the inside out, and add a high gloss shine. Who knew silk proteins could do all that? It’s also a replenishing treatment that protects your hair the more you use it, leaving it in optimum condition over time. After using it for only a few days, you’ll notice a softer, smoother texture to your hair.

If that isn’t enough, it even works on your skin. Talk about SMOOOTH. They don’t call it therapy for nothing, this stuff works. I’m a BioSilk believer and you will be too!
