Oftentimes, I forget to write about products that I use on a regular basis and here is one of them. The Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum wasn’t a planned purchase but I’m glad I picked it up anyway as it is a miracle worker for the hair.
As I’m writing this post, it seems the Ojon line has been discontinued from the Origins website (which is where I bought it) and pretty much every other brand name retailers. However, I don’t think you need to go out of your way to track one of these down if my review convinced you – this serum can be easily substituted by something you probably already have. Read on to find out!
I’ve always taken great pride in my hair – I tend to get compliments every time I go to a salon (I haven’t found one that I love yet so I’ve been salon-hopping with Groupon). Anything that maintains those compliments are always welcomed 🙂
I’ve never been into hair oil – the latest treatment I got for my hair was those Sephora Collection Sleeping Hair Masks which I’m kind of using on and off these days. I’ve recently finished my bottle of the Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum so I think it’s a good time to write about it.

When it comes to my hair, I’m all about preventative care and maintenance; the Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum does an excellent job at it. I am most impressed by the versatility of it – you can use it on wet or dry hair, as a protectant or a finishing product. It’s like the multi-tasking product you need for every occasion so you can keep your vanity clutter free too.
I apply it on wet hair after I shower daily, and let it air dry. Once in a while, I’ll blow-dry my hair before bed and the oil acts as a heat protectant. On the days when I need to be more dressy with my makeup/routine, I’ll use this as a finishing sealant to keep the flyaways at bay and to give the hair that sleek and shiny finish. Be very careful with how much you use, because the serum name is a bit misleading – it’s definitely more of an oil-based product so you don’t want to be too generous and end up with a very oily-looking scalp.
The result is impressive and worth the price – my hair looks like I’ve just left the hairstylist given how sleek, and shiny it is. Applying it daily before bed does wonders because despite the daily straightening and blow-drying, my hair continues to look and feel good.
The product comes in a little bottle with a dropper applicator, and you really don’t need much at all. Since I have thick hair, I can be quite generous and apply about a quarter-sized amount on wet hair. I would stick with a penny-sized amount otherwise.
Although it may be tempting to run out and purchase this bottle asap, I would actually redirect you to the kitchen instead. The serum smells and feels like olive oil so you probably don’t need to spend that kind of money to achieve a similar result. Looking at the ingredients list, I was slightly alarmed to see silicone on it along with a bunch of other oils which is the reason I wouldn’t splurge on tracking this serum down.
Although this serum did wonders for my hair, I probably won’t repurchase (or buy any hair oil like it) since a budget, natural solution can be found easily in the kitchen. I felt the result I got was similar to what I have seen with a olive oil or coconut oil that I don’t think it necessary to go out of your way to get one of these.
