Ojon Haircare

So I bought this Shampoo & Conditioner set from Sephora not long ago because it seemed to have some good ratings.  I really love this product.  It smells wonderful!  The only complaint I have is it doesn't lather great!  If you wash your hair twice the second time lathers more, but its still not as sudsy as I like it.  The smell is AMAZING!  I can't get enough of it!  I actually leave my hair down all day because I can smell it every time I move my head.  Most shampoos scent your hair for about an hour, but this one is an all day kind of deal!  I found my hair to be shiny and lightweight, none of this heaviness!  I found it works extremely well for fine hair.  After only using this product for a week I've noticed my hair feels healthier and more shiny than it was before. 

With it came the Leave in Glossing cream.  I'm not sure how I feel about this product, but it does help smooth down the ends of my hair after styling.  The smell is fantastic, and you only need a tiny bit of this product!  At the rate I'm going, this is going to last me about a year! 

I found the set to be a little expensive for the amount you got.  On the plus side of that, I watched the shopping network on this product and found out that they harvest the Ojon oil (which is actually Palm ) from Central America. Ojon is proud to work closely with MOPAWI – a nonprofit group dedicated to promoting sustainable development in the native Miskito and Garifuna populations in the Mosquita region of north–eastern Honduras.  I would rather pay a little bit extra for a product that is giving back to the region that it harvests its products from.  The great thing about this is they don't just go in and take over, they buy from the local people and help them to sustain their traditional harvesting methods rather than using machines and heavy equipment to harvest the product.

I have to say that I will probably buy this product again because I love the smell and feel of it, and because of the support that this company gives to the people of Honduras.  Maybe I'm just a sucker for a good story, but whatever, I'm sure I'm not the only one out there!
