After double processing my hair I knew I needed a protein treatment. I saw this at Target and grabbed it up at $1.50. Couldn't beat it if I tried. I used half a pack on my shoulder lenghth, towel-dried hair. Bagged and wrapped in a towel for 30 minutes. This stuff smells like vacation. Coconutty and yummy. The smell lingers after dried. Now, yes, this is a deep conditioning treatment. But like with every other protein treatment you will need to use at least a daily conditioner afterwards. Rinse well. Apply conditioner and taa-daa! Beautiful, healthy hair. (Yes! I can claim that after four bleachings to get my level 6 hair to a level 9.)
I relax my hair and generally tend to stretch out my relaxer for 3-4 months at a time. So I deal with two textures (relaxed and my natural textures which is a mix of 3b - 4a) I was experimenting with my regimen when my hair started to break and feel dry and crunchy. So I saw this product and purchased for $1.62. I shampooed my hair, added only half of the product from tip to roots, left in for 20 minutes and rinsed out. I then deep conditioned with a separate product and sat under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes. After regular styling, my hair is no longer crunchy/dry feeling and is not breaking from styling. This product contains protein so if after you rinse it out and your hair feels hard (which is a good thing - means your hair has been strengthened), you need to moisturize with a deep conditioner (so it won't break from lack of moisture). It smells great, is readily available, cheap, and effective. I highly recommend and will repurchase myself.
Okay, for $1.49, I can't complain toooo much...but this "deep conditioning" pack made my hair look terrible. I have very thick/coarse, curly, long hair. I applied the conditioner per package directions, waited 30 minutes, rinsed, and then let my hair air dry. A few hours later, my hair looked MORE frizzy, fuzzy, and just plain dry than when I use my regular conditioner!! Seriously. A coconut oil deep conditioner that made my hair look like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet. What the heck.
i LOVE the smell of this, but unfortunately it doesn't do much for my hair. it leaves my hair silky, but that's about it. for the price, i'd rather buy a jar of another Palmers hair product, which will last me for ages compared to only twice.
I have mixed feelings on this deep conditioner. I didn't find it conditioned that deeply. It just kind of felt like some of my older more "siliconey" daily conditioners I used to use on a regular basis...Which is kind of nice on occasion as I do miss that super slick slip when I rinse out my daily conditioner as I (usually) avoid sulfates & silicones these days. I can say though, that the next day when I styled my hair, it appeared shinier and it did not get greasy at the end of the day, which I was happy about because sometimes with silicone based or heavy conditioners if I put them near my scalp, my fine hair is weighed down and gets stringy by the end of day 1. The other positive of this product is the smell. I did not really like the scent when I applied it in the shower...But the next day and the day after that, my hair smells FANTASTIC. Literally, I saw my sister that day and she repeatedly stuck her face in my hair and inhaled deeply because the scent I was originally unsure about had become a gorgeous coconutty scent that stuck very well. Yummy.The packaging sucks especially because I can get three uses out of one pack but have no way to close it up for future uses, but whatever. Overall this is not that impressive, not the best deep conditioner I've used. But I would repurchase sometime probably months down the road, for the softness and the scent, just as a fun cheap treat.
I hated this product. It's a lot like Bed Head's Resurrection conditioner. Both leave your hair pretty parched. Well at least mine that was severely damaged at the time from bleaching. I hate how this gives you quite a bit of product, if your like me with shortish hair, but the pouch has no way to close to save what is left over.
This product does smell incredible however it didn't really do anything for my hair.
When I first rinsed it and left the shower my hair did feel noticeably softer however when I straightened it the next day I felt pretty much no difference
I have rather thick hair so maybe I didn't put enough but I did leave it in for the suggested 20 minutes.
My hair is professionally relaxed and color-treated, and other than going to the hairdresser for those services, I'm on my own. By itself, my hair tends to be dry give the relaxer and color, so I use products that add moisture. I couldn't resist giving this product a try and I really wanted to like it. My routine entails using a super-moisturizing shampoo and quick conditioner, and typically follow-up with a deep conditioner, and I did that tonight using the Palmers Protein Pak for the deep conditioner. Well, this stuff left my hair a complete tangled mess that was extremely hard to comb out. Idk, maybe it was the protein(?). Anyway, thank God for Mizani D'tangle; I had to use quite a bit of it just to comb my hair out after rinsing this Palmers stuff out! All in all, my hair wasn't any softer nor better moisturized or conditioned after using the Palmers, had it been, my hair would not have been sooooo tangled after using it.
**********All in all, this Palmers Protein Pack gets TWO THUMBS DOWN... I'll stick to the two deep conditioners I currently have in rotation which reliably deliver far superior results for my hair: (1) Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner/Pak or (2) Creme of Nature Argan Oil Intense Conditioning Treatment.**********
This is the best deep conditioning product I've come across. After one application it has left my hair super soft, silky, and managable. Best part is, it's super cheap! I'm definitely buying more. I would recommend this treatment to anyone with any type of hair. You won't be disappointed.
I love this stuff. I think this is made for people with African descent but I am a white girl and things makes my hair awesomely soft as well! When my ends start to feel dry I use this and it makes my hair soft and healthy again. Its also very affordable and smells awesome.
