answer 1
you should not use this product 5 days before or after have a color treatment, more specifically bleach, this is because the deep pigmentation and the deep penetration of the product may cause discoloration with hair that has been damaged by bleach.

probably because the oils it leaves on the hair prior to a chemical treatment may impact the chemicals efficiency. (ex: Japanese perm may not stick on hair that is too oily) I'm not sure about after... but I hope this helps

I am thinking that this may have something to do with the color of the product. I have black hair and I used it the day that I got my hair colored and nothing happened. It does state that it could cause "temporary discolorment" which leads me to believe it is from the color of the product. This probably affects blondes more, but don't quote me on that.

I bet it has something to do with how well the chemical process will 'take' to your hair. It adds a coating to make your hair soft and manageable. The chemical process may not be able to penetrate as well.

Refrigerating the product
I live in New Orleans, and keep my apartment cool, but if I keep the large tub in my bathroom it melts into liquid form. I've been storing it in the refrigerator, but I'm wondering if it will shorten the life of the product or damage it. Is anyone else keeping this product in the refrigerator?

I don't know if it will destroy it keeping it in the fridge, but I would try keeping it in the coolest room in your place. When it does melt just pop it in for an hour so it will solidify again, but any room that stays under 86 degrees should be fine.

Well, I'm not sure because I haven't done that, but for what it's worth you also aren't supposed to color right after washing your hair. The only thing that I can guess that the reason for waiting is that this seams to coat and seal your hair and maybe the color will not take quite as well if your hair is not as porous after you use it. I would just wash my hair with a good clarifying shampoo a few tines and that should make your hair more porous and take the product out.

How much to use
How do you use this product? I have long wavy curly hair past my shoulders. I "saturated" my hair with the product as it recommended but it's taken 6 shampoos to get the product out and not have greasy hair anymore. I slept in it overnight and also applied heat. How much do you recommend using for longer hair?

I have long curly hair and use very little. All you have to do is warm it up in your hands and apply a very light coat through out the entire hair otherwise you will be stuck with grease head for ages. Less is always better, You can always add more later if you feel it isn't enough

I have long curly hair and I used 1/2 of the trial size I recieved. It does not take a lot. You have to work it through your hair. I would not recommend leaving it in overnight. Apply for 20 min to 1 hour and you should not have any problems getting this product out. Dont over saturate your hair. A little goes a long way.

My boyfriend has a slightly oily scalp, so I have him use it sparingly towards the roots and concentrate more of it on the ends and his hair isn't greasy/oily after the 1st shampoo. I don't have an oily scalp, so by saturating my hair, it helps tame the flyaways/frizz. I also use it to concentrate on areas of my scalp that might be drier than others and leave it on overnight...but, I don't recommend it for someone that has and oily scalp/oily hair.

answer 2
My guess would be that the leave in would not affect the absoprtion of the Ojon, but may make your hair too greasy. Since you don't need to apply it to wet I would suggest not using the leave in for better use of the Ojon, then use the leave in condition after the Ojon teatment. You only need to use the Ojon once a week, so do without the leave in when you use the Ojon, then use the leave in later.

I have used multiple hair treatment products, including Ojon, at the same time & not had a problem. I would recommend waiting at least half an hour after applying the Ojon hair treatment before washing your hair. However, I have very fine hair & it is thinning as I age, so I don't use it as a leave-in conditioner/shine enhancer.

the ojon product is so oily, if you do want to use it (i don't recommend ojon at all) i would not use a leave in conditioner first. i have found much better results with Aveda and Juice Organics conditioners without spending the huge (scam) dollar amounts on ojon. If you read the ingredients, its just palm oil.

Ojon for sure. I have used Fekkai products & was unimpressed. I am 63 years old & have been mistreating my hair for years - coloring, sun, chlorinated pool, blow-drying - & Ojon's products make my hair feel soft, strong & healthy. Fekkai actually seems to make my hair feel more dry & brittle. Plus I prefer the scent of the Ojon products.
