This is my hair.
It's a kinky cloud, basically. My hair demands moisture all the time. Unfortunately, I neglected it a bit during the holiday season, leaving it parched.
Enter the Joico K-Pak Moisture Intense Hydrator.
From the label: This intense hydrating treatment restores moisture to overly dry, damaged hair, seals the cuticle, imparts shine, and improves manageability and elasticity. pH 3.5.
Sounds good to me!
This conditioner has a thick, lotiony consistency. Not watery, but not thick enough to call creamy.
It smells just like a hair salon. Really, just go to any salon when it's open and you will smell this conditioner. Fortunately, the smell doesn't linger once the hair has dried.
DIRECTIONS: Apply to damp hair. Leave in for 3-5 minutes and rinse.
When it comes to deep conditioners, I always leave them longer than the label recommends. In this case, I applied a generous amount to just-shampooed hair, slapped on a plastic cap, and left it on for an hour.
I rinsed my hair and was left with this:
Lovely, defined, fluffy awesomeness.
After styling, my hair shrank some, but the definition and softness remained. Impressive.
The softness and touchability of my hair is so nice. The moisture was indeed intense, delivering just what my dry hair needed. Also, the touch of keratin served to smooth my rough strands. It's definitely going into my deep conditioner rotation.
I recommend this to anyone who needs deep moisture with a little bit of strengthening. This product can be found at salons and Ulta.
