    I use the K Pack deep conditioning and like it very much. I decided to try this balm but find that it leaves my hair leaving heavy and dull.

          I have thick short curly hair that grows very fast. When my hair is closer to needing a haircut, I use this product which settles the hair, lessens the curl, and makes it easier to style.

            I picked this up on a recent trip to Ulta, hoping to replace my previous smoothing/heat protecting balm. Loved the smell and the thick texture. Unfortunately, I have found that this product contains chunks of glitter that make your hair look quite dirty. I wish I had known before I bought it. Won't purchase again.

              I have very thick, wavy hair with a lot of texture. I use multiple products to help straighten and smooth it. This product is great for smoothing and doesn't make my hair seem greasy at all. You get a good sized bottle for the price too. I will definitely purchase it again

                After I wash my hair I apply some in my hand and put it into my hair to blow dry my hair. It does work very well and my daughter also use this product.

                I actually enjoyed this product more than some of other smoothing balms. I put it in right before thermal styling my hair. I have very thin hair, so a tiny bit too much, and it weighed my hair down and made it appear greasy. If I get just the right amount, my hair is so soft and smooth!

                Comments about Joico K-PAK Smoothing Balm:

                I am Asian so I have very thick hair, the ends are almost platinum so I have delicate hair. over processed, and dry. I use my shampoo and deep conditioner every wash,but I don't wash everyday so really every 2 or 3 days. it kind of smells like bananas to me, it feels sticky and a bit slimey but only apply as I section hair and blow dry each portion. it has almost a shimmer in the actual product. blow dry time was cut me than 50 percent in time alone, and it left my blonde strands so silky, unbelievably silky and soft. it's felt light and flowy, and not at all heavy or greasy after use. after sleeping though I did lose my perfect blowout as I'm lying on it, but when done in morning it holds all day and looks amazing and shiny!

                I was hoping this product would help control my hair from frizzing up and getting curly when it's humid out, but unfortunately it did not do this at all for me. It did however cut down my drying time.
