Joico K-Pak Color Therapy

As previously discussed on Hair On The Brain, one of my all-time favorite secret weapon hair products is Joico K-Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor, so I was excited to try out Joico’s K-Pak Color Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner.

Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Shampoo is great for those with color treated hair or if you’re simply looking for a moisturizing, gentle shampoo. My hair is dry mid-shaft through the ends, but gets oily at the roots since I work out, so I need to shampoo that cleanses well but doesn’t dry out my hair. This shampoo works really well on my fine hair. It’s gentle and doesn’t strip my hair or weigh it down. It didn’t give me much volume, but it left my hair very soft and smooth. And I like the scent a lot better than the fragrance of the K-Pak Reconstructor, which I only tolerate because it works so well, but I hate its banana fruity smell! (I have an overall issue with fake banana scent dating back to a bad childhood memory involving some liquid medication. So gross!)

Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Conditioner is nicely moisturizing but not too heavy. It rinses clean and doesn’t weigh my hair down. My demi-permanent hair color always seems to start to fade within about a month or two no matter what I do, and I haven’t noticed a major different with fade time using this line. However, I was using color-safe products beforehand, as well. But I would repurchase Joico K-Pak Color Therapy when my samples run out because of how soft and smooth my hair feels when I use these products! I’ve been really impressed with everything I’ve tried from Joico and I’m planning on purchasing K-Pak Color Therapy Restorative Oil because I’ve heard many good things about it. Have any of you tried it? Yay or Nay?

And stay tuned because Michelle (who reviewed the GKhair Taming System for HOTB) will soon be reviewing Joico’s new K-PAK ReconstrRx VaporIron! Since Michelle is back to flat ironing her hair daily, I thought she’d be the perfect guinea pig person to test out the VaporIron for HOTB. I’m very curious what Michelle will think of the VaporIron in comparison to her regular flat iron… We will find out soon!
