This is a brilliant product and I can't wait to buy more! I used this with its matching shampoo in the hope it would help my poor, tortured hair that had gone from bleached blonde to dark brown. I have noticed a huge improvement in my hair. It is much more manageable and split ends are significantly fewer!! One of the best products I have ever used.

This doesn't agree with my hair type at all. It makes my hair so tangly and dull, almost mushy in a way. My hair isn't in terrible shape, I am sure it could be better, but it isn't awful by any means. I have fine, long, color treated hair and I thought this would be good to use once a week so I bought the huge bottle on sale. It does condition....but the sorry state it leaves my hair in is pathetic. Also the scent really puts me off. I used it the day after a night of indulging in about two too many cocktails and it made me sick. It's almost like a synthetic banana scent to me. Not great, hungover or not. I may use this every now and again on my ends but other than that I won't rebuy,

I love this conditioner. I had dyed my hair with OTC hair dye. It was horrible left my hair super dry. I have been having problems with my hair for the last couple of months, nothing I did would help it regain shiny, softness, and well make it look healthy. After, a week of using the conditioner along with the shampoo, I am hooked!! I love my hair. this product has made it manageable and most of all healthy!! I actually found joico at TJ Maxx for a much lower cost. The container is great, it has a pump so just the right amount is dispense. I strongly recommend this to any one struggling to have healthy, shiny, strong hair once again! :)

I absoloutley agree with the previous reviewer. The hair products at walmart work better than this stuff. I always get tons of compliments on my hair, & I've used walmart products all my life on my hair & never had a problem. Ever since I've tried using all these "high end" salon shampoos/conditioners it has made my hair worse, more damaged & dry. Never doing the "high end" shampoo/conditioner thing again, I've learned my lesson. Ironically, I work in a salon so i've tried many "high end" products & I'm telling you....they aren't all they're cranked up to be. One thing I do know, is that if your hair isn't pretty damaged for the most part, products with protein in them will further damage & dry out your hair. That being said, that's probably why this didn't work for me. My hair is healthy for the most part, so all this protein dried out my hair. I would only reccommend this for people with severely damaged hair, not for people with somewhat healthy hair. & that goes for any products containing protein in them, especially in high amounts like this one.

I have thick coarse hair and this made it DRY like straw!! I was very upset and returned it to Ulta and instead got something else!

I got a liter bottle of this at Ulta for 14.99...I originally went in just to try the K-Pak reconstructor but my beloved Bumble and Bumble Creme de Coco conditioner bottle had busted all over while I was on vacation, so when I saw how good of a deal it was I figured why not try it?
This morning after the gym I shampooed with Bumble and Bumble Gentle shampoo, put in the reconstructor, and then put in the conditioner (I used a showercap on my hair to let the ingredients penetrate better for both). My hair felt silky in the shower when I was rinsing out the conditioner. I did a wash-and-go, smoothing just a dab of gel through my bottom layers.
After my hair dried, I saw it in a mirror at school and WOW! It was so shiny, and my hair fell in that perfect messy-yet-sexy way with nice defined waves and no frizz. My boyfriend literally would not stop touching it all day, and asked what I did differently because it was so soft. It has just gotten better as the day goes on, getting even silkier. I'm pretty sure this was the conditioner, because all the reconstructor is supposed to do is make my hair stronger. :P
For reference, I have very thick 2B/C hair cut into a shaggy lob. It is virgin as far as coloring goes, and is easily damaged from heat and has a tendency to dry out. I wash my hair whenever it gets dirty...sometimes its 2 days, sometimes its 5.

This was recommended to me by the girl who used to color my hair, since my usual color job involved bleaching and (usually) all over highlighting plus color deposit (always).

So basically my hair required extra special care, and this product provided it. Although my hair was overly processed, it did not look in, by way of being damaged, dried out, frazzled etc. I always blow dried then used the straightener on my hair every single time I washed it and it still looked and felt very healthy despite how I tortured it.

This conditioner always left my hair with just the right amount of moisture, which is surprising since my hair required a LOT of moisture. I should mention that I used this as a usual conditioner, while adding a deep moisturizing treatment a few times a month.

Now that I am not putting my hair through all that, I have been using regular DS shampoo/conditioner and my hair is NOT in good condition. It has been breaking, splitting and not feeling nice. I thought my hair would be in better condition now. So I thought what is so different about what I'm doing now and then besides the coloring (which would've made it worse, NOT better)? And I honestly think this is the answer. I got so sick of it and was so glad I didn't *have* to use it anymore, but I think I will go back and use whatever I have left.

Anyways, it's pricey, but you can get it at discount in stores like Marshall's, TJ Maxx, or if in Canada, Winners. I would however suggest caution when purchasing those varieties, as I used this product constatly for over 2 years, and therefore was very familiar with it, and I know for a fact that the conditioner I purchased from one of those stores in an original Joico K-Pak bottle was definitely NOT the usual product.

I liked the conditioner, it helped untangle a bit - which is the first and pretty much only thing I look for in a conditioner. Not the best smell, but I always use Biosilk after I shower so it covers easily. I prefer Nexxus or Enjoy for the tangles.

I bought two liter bottles of the Joico K-Pak Reconstruct system without really knowing what I was getting myself into. My hair is not damaged per se, but I do get highlights about three times a year, plus my hair is naturally quite dry. About a year ago, I was having major damage problems, and my hair was literally snapping off, so I assumed that since I only recently started taking care of my hair (why did it take so long to see the light?) that maybe the K-Pak would be a good way to add moisture and restore even more health to my hair. However, I was totally mistaken.

The shampoo is ultra-rich and smells nice. It lathers well and leaves my hair silky smooth in the shower. However, the conditioner will always leave me wanting. The conditioner smells absolutely terrible, a very sickly-sweet smell, and it is in no way thick. It took me about six pumps to get the amount I needed (I use three pumps for the ends of my hair and three pumps for the upper half of my head.) When I began to style my hair for the day, I discovered that it was weighed down immensely, and that my curls had lost all of its definition, even though my hair was outrageously smooth, especially this awful underlayer of my hair (the nape of my neck area) that is downright coarse and disgusting--can anyone explain that to me? All of my hairstylists that I've ever had can't.

Basically, if your hair is severely damaged, or if you have intensely coarse hair, this is the shampoo for you. i bought my liters at Costco, and I'm now giving them to my mom, because that's exactly what her hair is like. However, I saved some in little travel bottles for a nice deep conditioning treatment when the cold weather sets in.

I got this during a liter sale at Ulta and I'm really glad I did. I've used the Joico K-Pak mask before and didn't love the smell but I'm trying to grow my hair out and knew that I needed something to help make my hair stronger. I only wash my hair about twice a week and this has made my hair feel a lot stronger and healthier. My hair is bleached, wavy, and tends to be dry and frizzy. This makes my hair smooth and strong.
