Joico's original, award-winning intensive protein reconstructor rebuilds and improves the structure of hair. Reconstructor features Quadramine Complex, an exclusive blend of low molecular weight and size proteins. This balance of 19 essential amino acids (the building blocks of hair) adheres quickly and effectively to ensure maximum protection and reconstruction from the cuticle to the cortex. Color-safe.

A powerful five-minute reconstructor that rebuilds and strengthens stressed, physically and/or chemically treated hair.

Lost or depleted amino acids are replenished with a high concentration of Quadramine Complex for maximum reconstruction and protection from the cuticle to the cortex.

Weak and damaged hair is restored to its original strength and condition, helping to prevent color loss and making your hair more responsive to styling.
Apply to damp hair. Leave in 5 minutes. Rinse.

Not your ordinary conditioner

By Juana

from Clute TX

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

My hair is very Long, thick, and colored so of course I was looking for a deep conditioning treatment to use a couple times a week. It doesn't come out of the bottle nor feel as soft as "conditioner" and it doesn't smell too nice. It smells like chemicals basically. I was able to comb through my hair slightly easier and after I dried and curled my hair it DID feel softer and my hair was shiny which I loved. It also made my dry ends look not so dead :) with my length I was only able to use this 3 times.

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

I have a love/hate relationship with this conditioner. I got it on sale, and am almost through the container. The thing that strikes me is the consistency of the conditioner. It reminds me of cottage cheese. It is not a smooth, silky conditioner. I was shocked. It doesn't go on smooth. And the smell? Wow. It smells like the worst chemically derived nonsense to put on hair. I really have to rinse the conditioner very well, or it will remain on the hair. However, the conditioner does work well. My hair is fuller and conditioned well. So, while I do have a love/hate relationship, the hate of the smell and the consistency will make me not want to buy this again.

        Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

        The first time I used this, I noticed I needed two squeezes of this out of the tube, as the first dab got absorbed instantaneously into the hair, so it definitely does not apply like a conditioner. I have thinning, shorter hair, so it seemed odd that I needed at least two squeezes out of the tube. My hair did feel softer after this first application. I also, used the deep conditioner by Joico after using the reconstructor.
        Unfortunately, after using this product a second and a third time (two days later, then three days later), my hair has become dried out, and the shine is gone, even after using the conditioner afterwards. I am discontinuing use.

          Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

          I have colored hair, but it's not especially damaged. It is, however, frizzy and 'cottony' so I'm always trying new conditioners to use on shampoo day. This one did nothing for my hair. It also smells and feels like yogurt. I ended up using it on co/wash days as an extra conditioner because I couldn't notice a difference anyway. Using it as conditioner alone, it took a LOT of product to fully coat my coarse hair. I'm used to this, but it seemed like I never had enough on. It just doesn't feel thick and nourishing like others. The results reflected this.

          Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

          This is a great product for reconstructing, treating and conditioning color damaged hair. It made my hair much softer and easier to style after heavy highlighting made it extremely dry. I gave it 4 stars because I have to use a lot of the product to get good results, but then it does the job. I found it works better than the K-Pak RevitaLuxe Reconstructor, which is more expensive.

            Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

            I started using K-Pak Reconstructor over 3 decades ago when it was sold in small and large plastic jars. It's not meant to be a daily conditioner and needs to remain on the hair for at least 5 minutes or more to get the best results. When my stylist started applying it on my hair all those years ago, she would always wrap plastic around my hair and sit me under a hair dryer to process. The results were wonderful. I still love the banana scent! However, I now prefer a newer product for what I find to give even better results...Derma Organic Intensive Repair Masque.
