Ojon’s miracle product, the Restorative Hair Treatment, is now available as a spray! But there’s a catch…until June 2009, it’s a QVC exclusive.
Right now, it’s available as part of the Ojon Restorative Hair 4-Piece Collection with Bonus – available at QVC.com. For less than $55, you get: 3.8 oz Restorative Hair Treatment, 8.44 oz Ultra Hydrating Cleanser, 8.44 oz Ultra Hydrating Conditioner, 9 oz new Restorative Hair Treatment Spray, 2.5 oz Tawaka Rejuvenating Cream , comb and gift bag.
If you’re familiar with the brand and own any of the above, it might not be worth $55 to get your hands on this new spray…unless your Ojon supply is low. But if you’re new to Ojon and want to sample some of the brand’s signature products, this is a good buy because, purchased separately, this collection would cost $107.
In the late 90s, my parents were among the 40 million people duped into buying Furby – a demonic-looking, furry robot troll that spoke its own language and antagonized children around the globe. You see, Furby loved to play…probably more than its adolescent owners. Furby didn’t care if my little sister had homework, had a headache or needed to sleep. Furby never tired of talking and would rarely hold its Furbish tongue. And in a matter of days, my sister’s favorite toy became the bane of her existence.
Furby didn’t have an off switch – so everytime she moved it, got close to it, or made a sound, Furby sprang to life…begging for attention. After a few frustrating weeks, my cranky and sleep-deprived sister decided to perform surgery on Furby. She fished my Dad’s screwdriver out of the toolbox and began to operate. Lauren loosened the screws hidden in Furby’s matted coat and removed the batteries. That was the end of Furby (R.I.P., little fella), and of my sister’s sleepless nights.
Following Furby’s passing, my sister recovered in record time. Her irritable behavior was replaced by her normal cheery disposition. And after just a day or so, the darkness under her eyes receded. But that’s the beauty of 11-year-olds. They’re resilient little suckers.
Sublimage is an undereye cure-all, simultaneously targeting wrinkles, fine lines, bags, dryness and dark circles. The cream has a luminous quality that cancels out shadows, so you can also wear it during the day – in lieu of concealers – to appear awake and refreshed (even if you’re anything but).
The Charmeuse Case is made of 100% silk and does so much more than merely protect your pillow. It prevents wrinkles by minimizing facial creases, extends the life of your hairstyle (no more tedious and damaging daily styling because sleeping on silk gives your hair more volume and shine), eliminates unnecessary hair loss or breakage and induces a deeper more restful sleep.

I typically wear my hair in a ponytail at least five days a week. And during the cold Philadelphia winters, when I’m forced to wear a hat, I end up looking ridiculous with my ponytail or bun stuffed into my knit caps.
It’s a simple concept, really. A fashionable wool winter hat you can wear two ways – with your hair up, or down. Features Swarovski crystal buttons in the back, and comes in a variety of delicious colors. Smart girl. Smart hat.
To wear: 1) Unbutton one button at the height of your ponytail. 2) Slip hat on, and pull ponytail through. 3) Voila! Now get out there and turn some heads.
The geniuses at Girl 32 also created the Smart Glove, featuring hooded fingertips on the thumb and forefinger…so you can dial your phone or apply lipstick, all without having to take off the entire cute glove you’re wearing. And be sure to also check out their Smart Scarf, with a hidden zipper pocket to stash your lipgloss, keys, bus pass or iPod.
You shampoo your hair. Then you apply a mis-mash of conditioner and styling products in an attempt to tame your mane. But is there a correct order for applying hair products post-shampoo? O, The Oprah Magazine’s beauty director, Valerie Monroe, sets the record straight.
After you shampoo, start with a conditioner or detangler to coat the hair so that the styling products you use next will be evenly absorbed. Follow that, if you like, with a mousse, styling gel, or styling lotion, which you should comb through your hair for even distribution, to increase the product’s effectiveness. (Combing through ensures that the stuff covers the whole strand instead of just lying on top of it, so you get more volume or moisture saturation or whatever it is you’re going for.) Finally, if your hair is frizzy or hard to control, work a silicone-based smoothing product through the ends before you blow-dry. After you’ve done your styling, you can use a spray for shine and hold, or, if you want a piecey look, try a texturizing wax.
Bottom Line: The magic formula is condition, style, then hold.
