answer 2
I'm in the same boat and am very in tune to trying to maintain my red color as long as possible between salon visits. So far, I've not seen this product diminish the red vibrance in my hair color. As I'm sure you're aware, red is the hardest color to maintain (as it fades very easily due to the chemical properties and molecules of the color itself). On the flip side, it's the hardest color to get rid of if you're switching to a different hair color. I would recommend giving it a try - be warned though, it will give an "ashy" presence in your color when you use it. Be sure to really work it in your hair, comb it out and style as normal. Watch the OB YouTube tutortial online. Great reference point on how to apply the product by OB himself. Good luck!

I would not even consider putting this product in your hair. The same brand sells a different version, in a copper/brown can, and I would try that one instead. This one leaves a gross residue (grey, in my blonde hair) that the other does not.

I would not use this one on corn rows as it leaves a white powder that I usually need to brush through a few time . Since you can't brush it, I think it would stay too visable. I would try a brand that has a tint to it that matches your hair color.

I wouldn't recommend using it on braids, since there is a white residue. You probably will look like you had flour in your hair if you just plan on spraying in on top of your braids and won't be able to brush it out. This product gets rid of oil but does leave a very strong scent and white power on your head.

I would say no. Not that I know personally, but unless you have light colored hair, the spray's whiteness won't blend in. I've tried it on my hair and brushing, blow-drying, rubbing, nothing seemed to get the white to blend. It did soak up the oil, though.

I don't have corn rows myself, but having used the product...even though I didn't like it for my hair...I actually think it could work ok for corn rows. Just be aware that if you don't spray it lightly and far enough away from your head, you'll end up with corn starch dust in your hair.

while it does work best when you brush thoroughly through your hair after spritzing - you could probably lightly mist cornrows or braids and give them a gentle blot with a towel (paper towel would work best). I would think at the very least your hair would look cleaner and definitely smell fresh!!

i like this one better than Ojon, it doesn't leave a wet film that you need to wait to dry to rub into your scalp as often, and i like the smell better. the Ojon brand is a REALLY strong powdery floral smell that takes over any perfume or lotion you're wearing, this one is a subtle citrus smell.

The Oscar Blandi does the basic job, but Ojon is more volumizing and revitalizing, definitely. This has strong lemony scent, like a cleaning product, whereas Ojon has a bit of a muskier scent. Both, however, will choke the air out of you if you aren't careful to either spray in a well ventilated area or leave the room immediately afterwards!

I prefer the Ojon version. It smells way better and cleans better. The revival it provides lasts far longer than the Oscar Blandi product. The only area (so far) where the Oscar Blandi dry shampoo prevails is in the nozzle - it has not yet clogged, whereas I've gone through two cans of Ojon and both clogged before I used up the product.

Absolutely not, in fact it will increase the volume -- (if used in excess there is a risk of weighing down your hair). So use lightly and let it to do what it is supposed to, that is lift out excess oils and in turn increasing volume at the roots. Some people use this on hair that isn't even dirty as an instant volume booster.

To Prevent Clogging:
-Shake can vigorously prior to and during each usage; if this is not done, solids that fall to the bottom of the can travel through the tube and clog the valve.
-Immediately following each use, rotate the actuator (nozzle) between your thumb and forefinger 8 to 10 full revolutions; this action should remove any powder left on the valve.
-If the product becomes clogged or does not spray, take off the actuator (nozzle) and clean it with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol; dry well and place nozzle back on the stem.

This product will have an “empty” feel as the product consists of powder, alcohol, and gas. For best results, shake the can well prior to and during use to ensure the product is properly mixed and prevent the powder from clogging the valve. If the valve is clogged, take off the nozzle and wash it with hot water. After drying well, place nozzle back on the stem, shake the can and depress the nozzle upside-down. If it sprays it means the valve is not clogged, if it does not spray the valve is still clogged. If this does not work, try squeezing the can – if it collapses easily, there is no gas in the can. Again, shaking before and during use will ensure the product is properly mixed for best use.
