Product Review: Joico K-Pak Color Therapy and Moisture Co+Wash Whipped Conditioner

The lighter my hair gets, the more I am in love with it. But as any blonde girl knows, lightning your hair can take a toll on your locks, even if you use the most gentle and high quality hair colouring products.

The timing could not have been better when I received some Joico hair care products to review, labelled MOISTURE on both bottles.  With the cold weather coming in, I am finding my hair more dry than ever. I received Joico’s Moisture Co+Wash Whipped Cleansing Conditioner and K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock and Instant Shine & Repair Treatment.

JOICO MOISTURE CO+WASH WHIPPED CLEANSING CONDITIONER

This mousse smells terrific and is super moisturizing! Wash your hair with shampoo first, then pump a small amount in your palm. I have way too much in my hand in this pic, you only need half the amount because as you see in the next pic, the mousse gets foamier and expands.

Place foam on your wet hair and leave it in for 5 minutes (i.e. shave one leg), then rinse. Don’t forget to shave the other leg! hahaha

Verdict

This stuff smalls great! I don’t think this product was strong enough for my hair, it needs more moisture! I will have to try it again with a different shampoo because I used my purple shampoo, which dries my hair out even more. I’ll get back to you on  this. The bottle recommends this for curly hair, so next time I will curl my hair instead of air drying it.

Use this treatment like you would any conditioner. Place on clean wet hair, and leave in for 5 minutes. Again, shave your legs in between to pass the time in the shower! Rinse and style as usual. I would keep this stuff away from your roots. It’s very moisturizing and would weigh down your hair.

Verdict

Now this treatment cream was made for me! I could tell right away when my hair was air drying that my hair was softer and more shiny than usual. It also smells like heaven. You don’t need very much either, so this tube will last me for ever! I can’t wait to use it again 🙂

Hairstyle Hacks: Effortless Beach Waves

Before going on my trip to Cancun, I rediscovered a way to tame my hair from the frizz brought on by the humidity of the ocean. I am a true mermaid, and love everything about the beach, but my hair isn’t exactly the nicest when it’s full of salt and sand. With my hair being shorter than usual, I find I need to style it more, to look it’s best. This combination means I need more moisture and shaping.

great hair style for the beach!

 

Being the lazy person that I am, when it comes to my beauty routine (yes! It’s true!), I’m so happy I rekindled my love for this oversized hair elastic I have been hoarding for the past 5 years. I thought I lost it today, and I almost cried.

 

  1. I washed my hair with Fekkai Essential Shea, and added some Osis Soft ‘N Straight balm to my clean wet hair.
  2. This is my air dried hair. See, I need help 😩.
  3. I place the elastic over my head and start twisting strands of hair all the way around.
  4. Do that to the entire head.
  5. Let is sit under your tuque and go tobogganing with your family.
  6. Take out the elastic and shake your curls loose!
  7. Enjoy and you’re welcome!


  


Happy Snowy Saturday!
