I was born with a wanderlust. And although I’ve driven across the country 4 times, and traveled a bit through Europe, I’ve never made it to any truly exotic locales. An African safari, a trek across the outback, a hike in a rain forest, these have all alluded me so far. But to tide me over, Ojon gives me a mini exotic vacation every time I use it. Especially when I use their Tawaka Ancient Tribal Rejuvenating Cleanser and Conditioner from the Rare Harvest line.
In addition to the Ojon oil that is signature to the brand, the Rare Harvest hair products also contains Savage Cacao, hand harvested by the Tawaka and Tawira tribes from the tropical rainforests of Central America. Incidentally, Tawira translates into “the people of beautiful hair”, so you know your hair is in good hands!
All of the products in the line are only available in limited quantities during the peak harvest period of their natural potent ingredients. And rest assured, they are sustainably harvested without destruction or depletion of the resource, while providing a sustainable source of income for the indigenous people that harvest them.
So, what does this Savage Cacao mean for your hair? Quite frankly, magical things! The amount in each bottle contains the same antioxidant amount as 125 and 187 lbs of blueberries (the cleanser and conditioner respectively). The duo is intensely moisturizing. They say it can be a daily treatment, but I found it too rich for that. Plus, I wanted to hang on to it as long as I could (at $32 per bottle, you want to savor it a bit). I have been using them once a week and my hair has been softer and shinier than I’ve seen it in ages. Which makes sense, as it promises to replenish precious oils that your hair and scalp lose over time. Of course, all without chemical fillers or sulfates as well. The cleanser can even be used on your face and body (hence the use of “cleanser” rather than shampoo). But after seeing the beautiful results on my hair, I’m a bit reluctant to share it with any other body parts!
Important to note, these have “that smell”. Ojon lovers will know exactly what I mean. The Ojon oil has a slightly spicy and totally natural scent that smells like no other hair care I’ve ever experienced before. That smell only gets better in the Rare Harvest line. Because in addition to being fabulous for your hair and skin, Cacao smells amazing. Rich, chocolately, buttery…delicious! Make sure you like the scent though, because it lingers strongly in your hair all day long.
This is a real treat for dry and damaged hair like mine. 4 stars from me, with a star being deducted for price only. Has anyone else tried the Rare Harvest line? Please let us know your thoughts!
