Ojon Color Sustain Shampoo, Conditioner & Full Detox Dry Cleansing Spray

I bought the Ojon Colour Sustain Color Sustain Travel Kit to test out the brand.  Recently I feel like they have really been raved about by Bloggers and You Tubers as being an 'amazing range of products' so I was keen to trial them for myself. 

The kit contains:

- Color Sustain™ Color Revealing Shampoo 60ml
- Color Sustain™ Color Revealing Conditioner 60ml
- Full Detox™ Rub-Out™ Dry Cleansing Spray 83ml

Firstly I'll review the shampoo and conditioner.  Last week I dyed my hair, just a box dye but it's a red so typically it washes out every time I'm in the shower.  The Color Sustain line claims to help retain colour for up to 40 washes which when you think about it means nothing as your hair colour could be be gone within five but they'd be like "well we did say up to!"  

Anyway, the scent to the shampoo and conditioner scent is nothing too distinguishable, I'd say is had a slight resemblance to ginger if anything.  Oddly I felt like the shampoo had slightly more scent than the conditioner but maybe that's just me!!  

I think the thing I noticed the most was that the shampoo was quite a runny consistency, nothing too ridiculous but just not what I expected for a shampoo that has a full sized price tag of £18.50.  I felt that I also needed quite a bit to make it lather up properly, my hair is just past shoulder length so if your hair is long I'd expect that you'd get through a bottle a lot quicker than other brands I've tried.  I'm not sure if there is a direct link to the consistency being a little thin to the fact I felt I needed more shampoo to properly cleanse my hair.  

The conditioner I only apply to the ends.  The constancy is as thick as other brands and seems to do the job of taming any frizz, leaving my hair soft.  I have no real complaints over that one.


Onto the Ojon Full Detox Rub Out Spray which I notice that you can buy in both the 83ml version that I have or the 185ml version, great for travelling which is when I always need dry shampoos the most. 
Personally I swear by the Batiste range so I was very excited to try this alternative.   I've tried this spray out a few times so that I could give you a full review of it.  The first thing I noticed was that it doesn't really have a the white cast a lot of people hate about dry shampoos, this was a definitely plus straight away.  I have taken photos of the last time I used it to show you although I never thought I'd be putting a photo of my dirty hair on the internet...!


To explain the photos, the top left is my hair before which is three day hair.  I decided to take a photo of the side of my head as typically this is where it gets dirty first whilst I'm sleeping etc.  The photo directly below it is when I applied the product and rubbed it in.   I still feel like it leaves my roots a little flat and itchy.  The photo on the right is my hair all brushed properly into place.  It still feels a little stringy but as you can see, when it's tied up you really can't tell and it does look clean in the photo.

Overall my thoughts of the dry shampoo was that it didn't give me the amount of volume Batiste does.  The scent reminds me of a mix between hairspray and the fragrance of when you rub an actual mint leaf between your fingers, which I kept smelling thorough out the day on the days I used it.  

The bottom line is... I probably wouldn't buy any of these three products separately.  The shampoo and conditioner didn't wow me (mainly the shampoo left me unimpressed and is nearly all gone now due to the amount I had to use)  I'd also like to add that my hair has faded exactly the same as any other brand despite me using this exclusively with no other hair products to give it a fair test.  

The dry shampoo was perhaps an alternative to someone that doesn't like the white cast left in your hair with Batiste, although you'll be paying an awful lot more for it.  I'm glad I didn't do what I originally planned which was take this set away with me on holiday last month.  For all of the above reasons I wouldn't recommend this product.

I hope you found this review helpful!  Let me know if you've tried any of these products or anything from Ojon and what you thought!
