Thanks barbarosa!
I get my Ojon on Ebay tho they do sell it on their own website Ojon.com. The used to sell it here on Curlmart but I didn't see it last time I was looking at stuff here. That was awhile ago tho.
It is my splurge item as it is more than I spend on any hair product. But a small tub lasts a long long time. Warning, people either love or hate the smell. I am addicted to it and often open the tub to smell it even when I'm not going to use any! : )

Thanks Jeepy! I went to their website and found many products with the name Ojon Restorative.....shampoos, conditioners, sprays, deep conditioners... Sorry to be a pest but can you tell me specifically which product of Ojon you use in your little dab?

Thanks, silverbeth! I think you all have gorgeous hair!

barbarosa, sorry I should have been more clear. It's Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment and it comes in a tub. I see on the website that they've added "Damage Reverse" to the name also. Ojon
You can also find it on Ebay, usually for a little cheaper. They even sell sample packs on there most of the time.

A 3 oz tub went for $8?! They usually sell for $25-$30 for that size.

Jeepcurlygirl, can you please tell me if Ojon Restorative Treatment has any protein or silk amino acids in it? Thanks in advance. (The ingredients aren't listed on the site.)

No that was my last bid. Someone outbid me. Not sure what final was. Trying hard to get the length. How long did it take you?

When I started getting gray I cut my hair into a chin length bob and kept trimming it up to that length as the gray grew in. Then I let it grow out, just trimming it when it needed it. In the summer spend alot of time in the sun, ride on my guy's harleys, and ride in convertibles so my hair does get damaged and tangled so I do have to trim it sometimes. Plus it doesn't grow real fast so it has taken a few years to get to the length it is now (not quite bra strap length in back when wet).

Smile Another "be out there" gal.

I'm 67, and have never had more fun. In love myself, am comfortable in my own (admittedly a bit wrinkly) skin, and love my hair. I found the Curly Girl book just last year. I was dubious at first, but tentatively tried cowashing with the Dove conditioner I already owned--and was blown away by how much better my hair looked, felt, and behaved. As for the color? I REALLY love it. It's a silvery iron grey, mostly in the front, is still chestnut in back, but that's changing as time goes by (lol). I say, color by God beats color out of a bottle, hands down. And think of the money you save!

Totally agree with you suayres! I am 64 and never liked my hair better than now. God sure knows best and is a great colorist as well!

Default Shine for Graying/Natural Color?

Barbarosa and jeepcurlygurl, if my hair would look as good grey and white as either of yours, I'd do it in a minute! It's not so much the grey and white hair color for me that's the problem - it's how it simply DOESN'T go with my complexion. Although I'm not crazy about coloring my hair at age 64, coloring it the right color makes my complexion come to life! Reason I know - years ago I went to a wig shop, and tried on about a half-dozen wigs that had differing amounts of grey and white, all the way up to what all-white would look like, Every single one looked awful, at least to me anyway. Maybe when I'm 80-90 I might change my mind, or simply don't care about my appearance - or simply not able to color. That said, I do admire people who have taken the plunge, who rock their silver and where it actually looks good on them. An awful lot of times however, I see women who are going grey who just look washed-out, even with a good haircut, the way I did when I put on those wigs. The wig experiment scared me straight - into hair coloring LOL!
