Ojon Cleansing Conditioner: Co-washing

Co-washing is definitely the latest fad to hit the beauty world, the idea of skipping the shampoo/lather stage and moving straight to conditioner is a pretty simple one, but I like it. The easier a beauty routine the better I say. I guess this Ojon Cleansing Conditioner is like the opposite of the old ‘head and shoulders two in one’ ideal, where it was more shampoo with added conditioner…this is more conditioner with a touch of shampoo…

I have to say, I’ve tried co-washing before – as American brands have cottoned on to this before with WEN Cleansing Conditioners – which I really like. So whilst this is a new trend, the actual products have been around for a while. The idea being that once or twice a week, you switch your usual cleanse AND condition two-part routine for a cleansing conditioner one-step. Ideal for curly or thicker hair, not maybe as obvious for straight, fine hair like mine. This being the hestitation when I go to try this – will it leave my hair lank? Will it be weighed down? Will it be shiny, but maybe a bit lifeless?!

Well, I can happily say that first impressions post-cleasing condition were all good – my hair felt clean, light and bouncy. Almost a touch fluffy – but with a really good shine. It feels good and I am impressed. I did of course add some volume styling products, but these are the normal ones I would use with my normal routine. The one thing I did note is that my hair did tend to droop a little as the day went on, and I’m not sure I would be able to get away with skipping the wash day afer a cleansing conditioner session. More likely having to wash the day after rather than my usual, one day wash, one day not for my hair… not the end of the world and my hair does feel really silky and soft.

I would say that if you have fine hair like me, this might be a nice way of giving it a boost and a bit of a half way between your normal routine and a full conditioner mask. That’s the sort of silky feeling it leaves it with  – smooth and silky.

In terms of use, I really like the Ojob Cleansing Conditioner – it feels lovely to use. Smells nice, rinses clean – ticks all the boxes. The couple of things I would say is – it doesn’t lather, so don’t be surprised by this. I didn’t expect it to, having co-washed before, but some might be surprised by this. Also, if you have curly or frizzy hair – definitely give this a go. This could very well be the perfect addition to your routine.

Ojon Cleansing Conditioner is available from Ojon Website (£18.50)

    Love the idea of this but like you my hair is quite fine, and I don’t think I would be able to get away with not washing my hair really. Maybe I’ll have to try the condition then shampoo my hair instead.

    I like the idea of this, but as someone with super fine hair that easily gets weighed down, I don’t think I’ll be giving this a try. A great review though!

    I love this product because it has no synthetic fragrance added, and truly moisturizes my hair. But since it does not lather, I cant really get away with using it (even for just a day) in place of a shampoo, since my scalp is on the oily side. I usually lather twice with shampoo, then condition… with this product I can later just once with shampoo, then use this Ojon product in place of the second lather-up and condition steps. Saves me one step, and the results are really perfect.
