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.

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 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 1
This works well, when used sparingly..there is such a thing as over conditioning!
I have very fine, wavy, brittle hair. I perm and color, so it was always really damaged. running my hands thru my hair was like hearing rice crispies!!
it didnt grow either, would get to my shoulder, and snap off.
first off, get a good hair cut. i know it sucks, but no amount of product will fix whats wrong.
then I would invest in carols daughter. no kidding! even my hair dresser commented on "new growth" all over. its growing like a weed, its soft, bouncy, healthy looking and shiny!! and they are all natural:)
it takes a while with them to find the right amount...too much can make your hair greasy, but once you do, its a miracle worker! i didnt used to beable to use product because it wieghed my hair down and made it look worse. but the more of CDs i use, the better my hair looks. ive used every expensive brand out there trying to repair YEARs of damage, but her products are reasonable.
On my hair i use the black vanilla shampoo and smoothie conditioner. spray in conditioner. margarites magic, hair milk and kizzis. even if they turn out to be too much for your hair, you can use at night and wash out.
at the very least try the margarites magic...

Hello I would reccommend protein treatments if you've had a lot of chemical damage..(highlights,lowlights,color,perm,relaxer,etc) It's it's dry you need moisture, and your hair is probably lacking shine...if it's brittle and breaking you need both moist. and protein. Redken extreme is great, or pureology repair. Stop coloring it, give your hair a break and you will see results. the more treatments the better. you could also have hard water build up on your hair and that could prevent your hair from growing. also check with your Doctor to see how your thyroids are...that could also be a problem...I would also not use heat on your hair for a while, it'll just make it break even more :o) hope this helps!

If it is as damaged as you say you may have to go for a short cut to get the damage out a begin anew. I am not sure of the length of your hair now but for some people the thought of cutting ones hair is enough to send them in to a panic, myself included, but as long as it is breaking and damaged you can spend I mint on great products but it not going to help. I recently went from relaxed shoulder length hair to natural and I cut alot off to do this but it was so worth it and I wish I had done it sooner, My hair is growing so much faster now and it is back to it's full healthy state and I just love it!!!

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.

I have thick hair that can hold a lot of product, and I had to shampoo my hair thoroughly every time I used this product-- otherwise I was left with a greasy mess. Based on this, I would think someone with fine hair would definitely have to shampoo afterwards. I didn't notice a big difference in terms of leaving on the product for 20 minutes and even overnight-- but if you leave it on too long I wonder if it might weigh your fine hair down....

Well I left it on for about an hour & it made my hair really soft manageable after. I think 20 minutes would the be the minimum to really get our money's worth. You would have to use shampoo afterwards to get it out - it's kind of like putting olive oil on your hair - just plain water wouldn't get that out.

i usually leave it on for 30 minutes or more, in the instructions it comes with it says you can leave it in over night with a shower cap on (to keep you bed clean) for an intense restorative session, and you would most definately want to shampoo it out after it is an oil so if you dont wash it out your hair will stay super oily. their shampoo and conditioners are amazingggg too
