I always remember struggling with my hair. I have a lot of it, and it's course and for some reason damaged. Well maybe because I die my hair black every 3 month. Still, I am constantly battling frizziness and dryness, even though I stay away from the blow drier and straighteners most of the time. I just can't get it to be soft and luscious.
So after intensive research, I decided keratin is the way to go. But a keratin treatment is so bloody expensive. Ain't nobody got money for that! :)
Here comes the next best thing. Keratin packed haircare. Joico always got good review on the internet so I decided to give it a go. The K-PAK line has a few variations, but I chose the one for colored hair. I have to say..I like it. Not love it.
Why like it? It cleans my hair without stripping it and when I use this set I tend to blowdry my hair because the heat sort of activates it and my hair gets softer and less unruly.
Why not love it? I still get frizz. If I'm being realistic it will take more then one bottle of something with keratin in it to get my hair to that stage. And I have to use heat in my hair to see the results. That I do not like, since heat it what causes the damage in the first place. If I let my hair to air dry, I just don't see any difference compared to drugstore shampoos.

The joico Company makes fake samples. I got a sample with this shampoo. And it was so amazing what it did to my hair. So of course I went out and bought the big size shampoo. Only to find out that it smelled different, had a different texture and when I washed my hair, the feeling was totally different. And afterwards my hair looked dry and boring. Gave it away quickly.

I would definitely not repurchase this shampoo! I have fine colour treated hair and this shampoo is just above average. For this price, I was expecting something amazing. But this product is definitely not... Well, at least for me it simply doesn't work. I am using both the shampoo and the conditioner. My hair ends up being oily at the base and dry at my roots. The same result I get when using drugstore hair products. So yeap, its a definite no for me.

This is the absolute best shampoo I have EVER used on my fine, color-treated hair. It's gentle enough to prevent color-stripping but powerful enough to actually CLEAN my hair—a combination that is just about impossible to find. Never, ever has my hair been so shiny and bouncy (in the past, most shampoo/conditioners left it looking like straw). So happy my search is over! (Oh, and it smells nice and amber. Bonus!)

Couldn't wait to finish the bottle with this. I really wanted to love this product, but I found it to be just okay. Joico makes my HG shampoo (Moisture Recovery) but I was curious to try their K-Pak Color Therapy just to see if I'd like it as much. Turns out I don't.
This shampoo that lathers up nicely, albeit heavily. Really doesn't rinse out easily either. Leaves my hair a tad dry and coated-feeling. Also, my hair color actually seems to have faded since I switched over to this shampoo, which I wasn't expecting at all.
When it comes to shampoo, I feel like you don't need to spend a ton of money unless it's for a product that delivers really excellent results. I don't think this one does.
This is actually on par with most drugstore shampoos, but it costs a whole lot more. I will not buy this again.

Firstly I just want to say I have color treated thick course hair and its very thirsty! I had just gotten my hair color and my whole head felt like straw! I went to Cosmoprof and bought this WONDERFUL shampoo and condition set with the deep conditioning treatment with it and wow! Just when I was putting the shampoo in it felt half way to silk, then the conditioner was even better. Secondly my hair usually takes me up to 1 hour/half to style. It took me 15 minutes to dry and 11 minutes to style!! This HG stuff is wonderful! I will absolutely be purchasing this again!!!!!! TOTATLY RECOMMEND,

Until now, my shampoo of choice for my coloured hair was Biolage. It's what my colourist uses and that was good enough for me. And I was very happy with it (except for the lid, which was a real pain to open). Then I saw the reviews here for K-Pak Colour Therapy and knew I had to give it a try. Well, I LOVE this stuff. For starters, it distributes through my hair more easily, as it's more "liquid-y" than the Biolage, which is a clear shampoo with a thicker and slightly more gel-like texture. Colour Therapy seems to lessen the fading too. I'll continue to use Biolage since I've got a practically full litre sized bottle of it and so I'll want to finish it off (unless I fob it off on hubby, whose hair isn't coloured but he'll use any shampoo on his hair). But K-Pak Colour Therapy has already (in 3 or 4 weeks' of use) become my new favourite.

I used to use the regular K-pak shampoo and loved it, so I was hoping the color therapy version would be as good. And it is. My hair is fine, naturally wavy and frizzy, and I recently had it coloured (semi-permanent). This shampoo is very rich and creamy, it lathers beautifully and leaves my hair feeling nice. I have a tricky scalp which reacts badly to many shampoos (e.g. just about everything by Kerastase, most drugstore shampoos) it may be I have a touch of seb derm or scalp psoriasis; however this shampoo does not aggravate it at all. A little goes a long way, you don't need to use much at all. Excellent product.

This shampoo is the bomb!! Cleans my hair without drying it. Smells like plants??? Really earthy. I use this in conjunction with the color therapy conditioner. Definitely would repurchase!

This might be the best shampoo I have ever tried. EVER. And I've tried a lot of shampoos. :)

My hair is really fine and thin with waves/curls. My hair also gets oily really fast, I guess 24 hours after last shower, which means I wash my hair every day. This stuff doesn't make my hair greasy faster than usual, which is a big plus for me. It lathers really well and it's cleansing my hair 100%. My hair is dyed black and brown with highlights, and this stuff makes my hair colour glow and shine. It doesn't wash out my hair colour. Love it!

The smell is a bit strong but I got used to it (after using sweet scented shampoos for years haha) and I really like it now. The conditioner is really good aswell.. Will buy this stuff over and over again, probably forever, it's amazing. :)
