What We’re Loving: A Hair Oil That Repairs Split Ends

We’ve tried dozens of hair oils in our time—so many, in fact, that we consider ourselves connoisseurs. Our latest discovery: Ojon Damage Reverse Instant Restorative Hair Serum. This instant frizz-tamer feels incredibly lightweight and turns our hair soft and smooth without weighing it down. 

The secret to the formula is ojon oil, a red hot ingredient that’s poised to become the next argan oil (look out, Josie Maran!). Sourced from Central American rainforests, this hydrating oil comes from the nut of the ojon tree, and it’s harvested by hand. When you run it through your hair, it helps restore shine, boost volume, and repair all kinds of heat and styling damage. Plus, it has the amazing ability to mend our stubborn split ends, so we can grow our hair to Rapunzel-like lengths without veering into unkempt territory. All you have to do is run a few drops through wet or dry hair, then style as usual.


Another hair serum we adore? Kérastase’s Elixir Ultime, which is packed with four essential oils and doesn’t feel the least bit sticky.

April Showers Bring…the Blahs

Another day, another fine layer of gray mist over Manhattan. It’s hard to get peppy when it’s this meh outside. Here’s how I’m coping:

Smooth fuzzy hair with Oscar Blandi Olio di Jasmine Hair Serum. Just because it’s still chilly doesn’t mean it’s not humid. This weird in-between weather makes my hair do the ‘frazzled librarian’ thing, so I use a few drops of this floral serum to calm it down. 

Spritz a bit of Serge Lutens L’Eau. The perfumer wanted this scent to smell like clean — I think it smells oceany and fresh. It’s energizing and light — the exact opposite of how I feel.

Brighten up with a highlighter. Since my skin hasn’t seen the sun in approximately six months, I need a little help creating that healthy glow. NARS Orgasm Illuminator is my best friend. I layer it on over a pinky blush to get a tiny bit of sheen, and dab a bit on eyelids too.

Ah, that’s better. Give me a cup of coffee and I’ll be ready to face the world. 


Happy Thursday! You totally deserve a treat for making it through the week — pick one up in the Birchbox Shop.
