    I used this product when I colored my hair. I noticed my gray hair had become dry and dull, so I tried this product again. My gray hair looks great!

      Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

      I came across this product while standing in the aisles of Ulta determined to find something to bring my damaged locks back to life. I had spent the previous two days trying multiple treatments. My hair was falling out at an alarming rate! My stylist had over processed my hair while turning me back into a blonde. The end result was broken, dry, frizzy, and straw like feeling hair. I purchased the sample size of this product and read some of the reviews before trying. I'm glad I did, as the label doesn't clearly mention that this is basically a protein treatment for your hair, not a moisturizer. I did the shampoo, then the kpak treatment (left it on for 15 minutes) and then did a deep conditioning (for about an hour). I immediately noticed an improvement in the texture of my hair. Upon letting it air dry, it's soft, shiny, and frizz free! I bought the largest bottle of this product that I was able to find!

          I like this product. It's my first time using Joico, and I will probably go back and buy the rest of the line of products. My hair is very dry due to tears of color treatments and blow drying. This smoothed it right out!! Love it!!

            I tried this based on a hairstylist I follow on Instagram. So glad I did. I have never used any Joico products and I'm slowly turning into an Avid fan. This product makes my wavy and curly hair so soft and really helps with smoothness. The fragrance is strong but I like it. A little goes a long way. I'm not even out of my first bottle and I've already bought more.

                Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

                I was very disappointed with the product's soupy consistency. Perhaps I got a bad/expired tube? In retrospect I should have returned it. Oh well. I ended up using way more of the product each use because it was so watery. It also smells like bananas. The mask seemed to make my hair softer, but there was nothing remarkable about it. I would not buy this again since I prefer a thicker creme-like consistency.

                    I have bleach blond hair down to my bra strap. I let this sit for 20 minutes the I use Argon Hydration for 3 hours. It is supposed to be cumpy when it comes out. It is not a hydrater you need to condition afterwords. It is protein that fills in the weak spots in your hair shaft. Use it for 4 weeks and see the difference in your hair. If your hair is bleached and severely dry/damaged you can use the protein k-package everyday if you feel it getting a little crunchy cut back on the use. For people who don't have a lot of damage 2x a week would probably be enough. Remember it's not a hydrater but it does leaves my severely damaged hair feeling silky. I also use the serum oil that is wonderful, it has peptides in it. The hairspray has Keratin in it also keeps frizz away. I have to try the shampoo and conditioner still.

                      My stylist recommended to me after I had a lot of breakage from another stylist. She said it's the best to reconstruct your damaged hair. It did just that!! I was devastated until a week of using this. A few weeks later went in for new highlights and no breakage. It is a protein reconstructer!!! So you need to use a moisture treatment also!! This product only rebuilds protein and remember too much protein is not good. So only use once twice a week and when you feel your hair is getting stronger slow down on how much you use, you will know. I'm getting a moisture treatment this week when I repurchase my joico shampoo conditioner and reconstructer. Joico is the best gals!!!!

                          Purchase this based on the great reviews. I'm not sure if I purchased a bad bottle or not, but when I squeezed it from the bottle the product came out clumpy. The only way to describe it would be a curdled look. I figured that maybe I needed to shake the bottle. I did that and the conditioner came out so runny that it would leak out of the palm of my hand, but still had that curdled look to it. It also did nothing for my hair. Typically when I use a treatment type conditioner, my hair would feel silky smooth. This was not the case. I wasn't able to use it after that.
