The Conditioning Properties of Silicone

On just about every hair board, you can find a post bashing silicones for coating the hair and robbing it of moisture.  I don’t have any particular distaste for cones (quite the opposite) but I thought I should do some research and see if all silicones are as detrimental to hair care as some of the hair board postings seem to suggest.  This is what I found. Silicones have a bad reputation for coating the hair and blocking...

Wash Day:Ojon

This wash day I decided to give the Ojon gift pack I received for Xmas another go.  This was about the third time I’ve used it. First up was the Restorative Mask.  As directed I covered my hair with the restorative mask and combed through for even distribution.  Since I was busy, that stayed on for about 9-10 hours while I got some work done. I then shampooed with the Hydrating Shampoo about 3 times (my hair felt very coated)...

Length Check 05.16.2010

Finally got some photos taken.  I gained more length than I thought…it’s a pleasant surprise but I won’t rejoice  just yet.  I know all too well how up and down my hair journey can be.   The center back is taking a while to catch up.  For the cut I had, the center back was cut considerably shorter than the sides so it’s going to take some time to catch up (unless I decide to go back to my cute cut 🙂 )  I did a...
