Joico K Pac Clarifying Shampoo
I started assuming I must have a really bad build up of minerals/limescale etc. From my knowledge as a hair stylist I searched for a good quality chelating shampoo (basically dissolves any residue and build up). Washing up liquid also works well for this purpose *permission to gasp granted* leave on for a few mins, rinse and hey presto beautiful swishy hair returns – that’s the theory anyway.
Joico says: If You’re a product junkie and need a hair detox. You shampoo once a week and want a formula that goes deep. You’d like to change your colour big-time and greet that chemical service with the purest hair possible. It’s times like this when our Clarifying Shampoo becomes your new best friend: Unlike most clarifiers on the market, ours doesn’t suck the life out of delicate hair, but leaves it moisturized and shiny, while providing a unique smooth slip for wet combing.
Perfect choice for everyone – even hard-core swimmers. Our lightweight formula won’t overwhelm fine hair, yet is rich and nourishing enough to impact thicker strands; even those exposed to chlorine, minerals, and hard water.
Here’s how: Wet hair thoroughly (a full soak delivers the best results); apply and lather, leaving the product on up to five minutes for optimal clarifying results. Rinse and follow with K-PAK Conditioner.
The inside secret: To balance the powerful properties of a clarifying formula, we stock our shampoo with exclusive Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex – an exclusive blend of proteins that protects the hair from cuticle to cortex.
I use this a couple of times a week, Leave on for two mins and you should see some improvement. This alone will not do though as hair still feels stiff while wet and refuses to be combed through without a fight. However, I would suggest trying it as after researching online for the best clarifying shampoo this one keeps popping up with its rave reviews to boot. Also great for regular swimmers to keep the hair free from chlorine build up.
This shampoo is enriched with Amino acids, aloe and antioxidant vitamin E, reconstructing the hair by healing areas that have become weakened, as well as protecting from further damage. I would add that I haven’t repurchased this shampoo as it did leave my hair still feeling like wet straw, however, I wouldn’t expect a healing shampoo to feel ultra nourishing.
Moisture Recovery Shampoo And Conditioner
Here’s what Joico say: You know what it’s like to be thirsty and parched; grateful for a long, tall drink of water to rehydrate you in minutes. Your hair knows what that’s like, too… and it will literally lap up the hydration that our Moisture Recovery Shampoo pours into each and every strand.
Our rich, luxurious formula actually restores smoothness and elasticity to hair that’s lost its mojo. Perfect choice for dry-to-extremely-dry strands that are panting for a rescue. Here’s how: Apply to wet hair; lather, rinse, and follow with Moisture Recovery Conditioner. The inside secret: The gentlest surfactants we could get our hands on help cleanse away residue with a lavish lather that won’t strip hair of even an ounce of precious hydration. Bio-Mimetic Peptides, Marine Botanicals, and Seawater Nutrients inject an ocean of moisture into dehydrated hair.
Joico Smooth Cure Conditioner
I use this along with my Moisture Recovery Shampoo. This comes in a close second but in honesty, I do prefer to stick with Moisture Recovery Conditioner as my hair loves it and has improved so much since becoming hooked on this stuff. I buy these giant 1000ml sizes as I get through so much. The Smooth Cure range does smell delicious and helps the comb go through quite happily. Again, I leave any conditioner combed through for several minutes for best results.
Joico Thermal Protectant Spray
Here’s what Joico say about their product: Before you even think of reaching for your flat iron or curling wand, you’re going to want to get your hands on our Thermal Styling Protectant: It’s not only an invisible shield that safeguards your hair against the rigors of heat styling(up to 450 degrees); but we consider it a tool by itself that finishes the smoothing process to perfection.
Perfect choice for: Locking in sleek styles on any hair type – from frizzy to fine.
Here’s how: Spritz onto dry hair, section by section; then flat-iron, curl, or round-brush into absolute perfection.
The inside secret: Hydrolized Keratin – which springs into action when it detects anything from a heat tool to actual sunlight–forms a literal shield of protection against frizzing, fading, and environmental damage. Our formaldehyde-free KeraShield Complex (with Keratin, Brazil Nut Oil, and Tucuma Butter) strengthens the hair and keeps unruly hair at bay for up to 72 hours.
This is my most repurchased and go-to heat protectant spray. I adore the fragrance and well it just does the job. I spay it on to my towel dried hair, comb through and dry as normal. When my hair is dry I sometimes go over my whole head again, just misting it over and continue with a final blast from the dryer for extra smoothness. a gorgeous product and highly recommended.
My hair is very long with tons of high lights and so it can be high maintenance. If you have similar hair issues or just need a bit more moisture then I would really recommend trying all of these products. My hair is so much better nowadays, it’s really worth spending a few extra pounds for some salon quality products!
