I‘ve dyed, fried, rinsed and repeated.
From when it was cool to have permed hair to stick-straight hair (the old-fashioned way using an iron and an ironing board – this was before awesome hair straighteners were on the market) to thick, chunky blonde highlights and then ombré, I have done it all.
And all in the name of style!
Unfortunately, my wasn’t too pleased with all the experimentation and undergone some seriously heavy punches.
Most recently, I dyed my hair a gazillion shades lighter than it is (I have naturally black-dark brown hair so that makes it even more injurious), so even after dying my hair darker again, the texture has never gone back to the way it was pre-bleach.
Boy, do I regret doing that!
I had shiny long healthy locks before that and no matter how many times I trimmed the split ends or used leave-in conditioners, it was very tough to find products that really worked.
The Holidays is fast approaching which means tons of events and memorable photographs.
I was so happy to be introduced to a powerful reconstructing 3-pack system, Joico’s K-Pak Colour Therapy Sets including their Revitaluxe (heaven-sent!).
With the highest concentration of Bio-Advanced Peptide-Complex in its formulas, Joico’s K-PAK Color Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner delivers the ultimate in healthy hair. Revitaluxe, a post-wash luxury treatment, works to rebuild, reconstruct, strengthen and correct even the most severely damaged hair.
Joico has also unveiled the power of DNA science and the latest advancements in bio-mimicry to create Joico’s patent-pending Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, the most powerful, targeted hair repair technology ever created.
To restore your hair for the fall and winter months, try these three products from the Joico K-PAK collection:
- K-PAK Color Therapy Shampoo ($12.69, 300ml): Indulge with this gentle yet rich colour-preserving shampoo, which improves the hair’s elasticity and shine.
- K-PAK Color Therapy Conditioner ($14.99, 300ml): Ideal for damaged and colour-treated hair, the K-PAK Color Therapy Conditioner hydrates and repairs hair making it stronger, shinier and feeling silkier
- K-PAK Revitaluxe ($24.95, 150ml tube): This fortifying treatment repairs years of damage instantly by reconstructing the hair structure from the inside out. It offers dramatic cumulative benefits, by continuing to correct and protect strands with regular use.
The full K-PAK line is available in fine salons and spas nationwide.
At first try, when applying the conditioner, I thought: this conditioner is so watery – how could it possibly coat and nourish my dry hair?
The results will speak for itself after continuous use. That’s the thing I noticed about Schwarzkopf conditioners. They feel more on the watery side as I’m more use to the thickness of conditioners but it really works!
