For first time users, this treatment comes in a solid form. You scoop it out with the included comb and warm it up into your hands where it becomes an oil. Then, simply apply it all over your hair and comb it through to make sure it's evenly distributed. I cover my head with a shower cap and leave it on for as little as 20 minutes up to overnight.
When ready, wash and condition as normal. You can use the Ojon shampoo and conditioner of your choice, or use whatever you have.
Some useful tips for applying:
1. Remove rings and bracelets so as not to get them oily. I use this time to put my rings into my jewelry cleaner to soak
2. If using another brand of shampoo/conditioner, choose one that is sulfate free. A sulfate formula will strip the oils from your hair and you will end up back where you started. (I will make another blog showing you how to choose a good shampoo/conditioner)
3. Put on an old shirt. There is little chance of getting this on clothing, but being cautious is always good. Oils can ruin some fabrics, so put on something you wouldn't mind getting dirty.
4. After shampoo/conditioner, apply a leave in treatment to your ends. Ojon makes a nice Restorative leave-in treatment made with the same oil. But, you can use whatever you have that will protect your hair from heat and environment.
Now, dry and style as usual and enjoy that healthy, shiny hair!!
