Review Joico K-Pak Deep penetrating reconstructor

Time again for some hair care and one of my most beloved findings of 2011, which is the Joico K-Pak reconstructor. Actually I like the whole Joico K-Pak line, it's good stuff - especially if you frequently style/colour your hair look into this -, but this product is probably its most radiant star...
The packaging is simple and big, you get 250ml which lasts quite a long time. You can buy it at hairdressers or online (feelunique, lookfantastic,...). It's not cheap but not insane expensive either considering the amount you're getting. It has a strong scent that reminds me most of bananas and coconuts, I really like it.
  • K-PAK Reconstructor contains the highest amount of Quadramine Complex than any other product in the Joico family.
  • Hair is left shiny, strong and in a healthy, manageable state.
  • K-PAK Reconstructor results in an immediately noticeable difference in strength, texture and appearance.
This product qualifies as 'a treatment', it's not a mask or a conditioner, don't be fooled. It's meant for damaged hair to improve its structure. If your hair isn't damaged, you will most likely achieve hardly any results with this one (wow, complicated sentence). Myself, I regularly use a straightening iron, I sometimes colour my hair - safe to say there is some damage to it. So when I started using this I quickly saw results... My hair became stronger, softer, easy to detangle and when I style it - it remains styled throughout the day/next days. However, don't overdo this product... even though you want it. It's adviced to be used once a week at its most, as it can be drying for your hair and it's best to follow up with another conditioner (they advise K-Pak intense hydrator, I tried it & it's a good combination). When your hair has regained its strength, leave the product be as it is too heavy then, untill you need it again. Now, there's something I'm not good at... leaving a product be when I love it?! But it's the best choice, I noticed it wasn't adding anything to my hair anymore lately, only weighing it down and the volume was less & less...
To sum it up: yes, I love this product and when my hair is in need of it, I will repurchase this one for sure. Just make sure you don't add this to your hair-routine, use it like it's intented to and I'm sure you'll love it!

Ik deel je mening! Zalig product, ik heb het jaren gebruikt, maar wegens zoveel andere producten in mijn kast op dit moment, heb ik nog niet opnieuw gekocht.

Het doet soms eens goed om te wisselen, maar ik koop het zeker eens opnieuw als ik merk dat mijn haar terug droger/meer beschadigd is. Heb het merk trouwens leren kennen door jouw blogpost toen ;)
