Fekkai vs. Ojon: A personal review!

l00345.jpg 

I have never tried any of Ojon’s products before.  When my favorite,  Fekkai Glossing Cream ran out, I decided it’s my job – my DUTY to try something new.  For your sake, of course.  It’s such a burden to have to try all these great new products – just so ya’ll can be in “the know.”

Anyway, while I was at Sephora (again) I noticed that Ojon has a new Glossing Cream available, and decided I should give it a try!  It’s a little more than half the size of Fekkai’s Glossing cream – and slightly more expensive. I bought it anyway.

I have to admit, I really like the way my hair feels. It feels amazingly soft, very shiny (but not greasy!) and it looks great.

One HUGE downer, though – this stuff STINKS!  I can’t stand the smell of it!  I don’t know if I would ever buy it again, because I can’t stand to smell it! I’m going to give it one more try – and if I still feel the same way, I may actually try and return it.  It contains sweet almonds, wheat germ and broccoli seed oils.  (No wonder it smells off!)

Anyway – here is Sephora’s review:

This super lightweight leave-in glossing cream for all hair types provides a daily boost of nourishing moisture that leaves the hair looking and feeling glossier and more lustrous. Because this nourishing formula repairs damage and locks in moisture, it’s a great way to keep hair healthy looking between deep conditioning treatments.

It features a natural algae extract which has a similar molecular structure to silicone, and is also enhanced with sweet almond, wheat germ, and broccoli seed oils, plus vitamin E to help intensify color brilliance and maximize color retention. It protects during the day with a potent UV-inhibiting antioxidant complex that helps protect hair from sun and environmental damage, and also helps to eliminate static and frizz. Formulated with 100 percent pure Ojon oil that is supported by clinical studies to fortify, restore, and nourish damaged, color-treated, or processed hair.

To use: Emulsify a dime-sized portion in the palm of your hands until it disappears; distribute through hair before and after blow-drying to add manageability and shine.

$10.00 for 2 oz., $30.00 for 4.25 oz. – BUY IT HERE!

You should try Jonathan Silky Dirt! I think it’s similar and it smells yummy!

I purchased this and don’t like it at all. No where near as good as Fekkai Glossing Cream. But at $30 something a pop, I will use it until it’s all gone. Yes, the smell is atrocious, but fortunately once on your hair, it doesn’t smell that bad.

I love Ojon products. Never tried this one before so I can’t say for sure about the smell, but the Ultra Hydrating shampoo/conditioner, and the revitalizing mist all have this nice, fresh, kind of nutty smell that isn’t bad by any means. If you like light, fruity scents, then you probably won’t like it. Every Ojon product I have tried so far (including the new “Rare Harvest” line) has been fantastic.

If you are looking for gloss without weight, I highly recommend Pureology. I have fine hair that is naturally curly, so it’s dry and fragile…I use the Super Straight line of products and it’s fantastic! They are a bit expensive, but super-concentrated so a little goes a long way. I also LOVE the smell – very herbal. The smoothing lotion has a lovely lemon smell to it.
