Hair Loves From Bumble, Ojon & Caribbean Essentials

Products for curling, straightening and treating your tresses:

Bumble & Bumble Curl Conscious Range – from £18.50
Whatever your curl type, Bumble has a product for you. The range is made up of:
smoothing shampoo and conditioner, nourishing masque, defining crème for fine curls, calming crème for tight curls, holding foam and reactivating mist.

I use the shampoo, conditioner and nourishing masque when I’m going to wear my hair curly and simply wash condition and treat; comb through my wet hair with a tangle teezer and then apply generous amounts of the calming crème for tight curls. I then let it air dry and I’m on my way. If my hair starts to frizz or droop I apply a little reactivating mist to spring them back to life. The holding foam is like a lightweight mousse; it won’t leave your hair tough and crispy but it will make your curls frizz free and defined. Like all Bumble products they leave your hair looking, smelling and feeling wonderful. I think Bumble is my new favourite hair care range.

Ojon Rare Blend Protecting Treatment – £23
Ojon Rare Blend Protecting Treatment is a two phase, pre-heat styling spray for protection against styling-induced damage. It contains honey, ginseng and lemongrass to nourish dry hair and seven multi-benefit oils. Hopefully you can see in the picture that the treatment has separated; the bottom phase helps condition, detangle and nourish making hair more manageable and easier to style while the top phase help prevent breakage that can occur from heat styling. Both phases work together to protect and restore hair.

When I first applied to freshly washed and towel dried hair it felt like I was just spraying water but when I had finished blow-drying and heat styling, my hair looked, felt and smelled so sleek and soft. I’m a huge fan of the Ojon Rare Blend Oil and this pre-heat styling treatment is just as good.

Caribbean Essentials Intensive Replenishing Scalp Oil – £18 
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. This blend of basil, bay laurel, castor, rosemary, clove and coconut oils will help refresh, clarify and stimulate the scalp. If you (or better yet, someone else) can massage the scalp oil direct onto the scalp and leave overnight you will be stimulating blood flow to the scalp, helping heal the surface of the scalp which can minimise dandruff, itching and flakes and condition the hair. The oil contains bay rum which when inhaled (not drank!) helps improve memory and relieve headaches. Use it the night before you wash your hair and over time, the condition and health of your scalp and hair will improve.

Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner

I am a huge fan of Ojon as their products work so well on curly and Afro hair.

When I read about the new Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner I knew it was something I had to get my hands or should I say hair on. Anyone with Afro hair, but especially those who have treated it with colour or chemicals needs to use this product.

The conditioner contains three butters and seven oils which are known for their nourishing and shine enhancing properties. I like to know what I’m putting on my hair and if you do to, take these ingredients in:

  • Ojon Oil penetrates the hair shaft to repair and seal the cuticle and helps to build up hair’s natural resistance to future damage.
  • Indian Kokum is rich in essential lipids, is known for its nourishing properties and is traditionally used to hydrate skin and condition hair.
  • Brazil Murumuru Butter contains oleic acid that helps retain moisture in skin and hair and gives a healthy shine to damaged or over-processed hair.
  • African Shea Butter is high in vitamins A and E and provides essential nutrients that help strengthen and hydrate hair.
  • Rouge Oleifera helps protect while reducing flyaways and adding shine and manageability.
  • Tahitian Monoi Oil adds shine and protects hair from both heat and environmental factors.

The conditioner itself looks a bit like Cadburys Creme Egg filling; it is a two colour product – the ivory colour is to soften the hair and the amber colour is to nourish, repair and condition.

You can use it daily but I like to use it as a deep conditioning treatment. When I had my hair coloured at Daniel Galvin, the colourist told me there is no such thing as too much conditioner for coloured hair. With that in mind I applied the Rare Blend Deep Conditioner in the morning and washed it out in the evening.

My hair felt amazing afterwards. My tangle teezer glided through my hair with ease and my hair looked, felt and smelled wonderful. I love this product, as anyone with curly or Afro hair knows; shampoo we can be flexible on but when it comes to conditioner we need the good stuff. Ojon Rare Blend Deep Conditioner is the good stuff.

In clinical studies the conditioner reduced friction force and improved ease of combing by 98%. Curly girls will love that statistic!
