I am getting ready to turn 40 and starting to ask myself if I looked it yet not really wanting to know the answer. For some reason I had it in my head that if I went as blonde as I was when I was about 10 then I wouldn't look my age. WRONG!! I looked old and washed out. Needless to say so did my hair! It didn't feel like my hair anymore and I hated it. I went to a very high end salon and had my hair brought back to my natural ash blonde and while she was at it she gave me a deep conditioning. The conditioning she gave me only worked until I washed my hair again so I went on a hunt to find a good enough product to use at home that was also not as expensive. I ended up trying this product because it was on the lower end of the higher priced products and the words RECONSTRUCT enticed me. I bought it after contemplating for about 20 minutes and man am I glad I settled on this! This stuff worked almost immediately and hasn't stopped working. After the first use I noticed a shine to my hair which I thought I had lost from all the dying. After about 1-2 weeks I noticed the transformation of my hair. It went from dried out straw to healthy shiney and managable. I can't say enough good things about this product. My hair stylist even noticed how healthy my hair had become and I made it a point to tell her it was all due to K-Pak by JOICO! The only one draw back from this stuff is it doesn't exactly have a very pleasant smell but it smells better than others I have tried. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get their hair healthy, vibrant, and shiney.  K-PAK RECONSTRUCTOR by JOICO WORKS!!!

Once again I'm going to be in the minority.  I'll start off by saying that since using this and so many different hair products, I've come to the realisation that my hair dislikes those that are protein heavy. So that might be the reason - maybe not the only one - why it didn't work for me. I had high hopes for this treatment and really wanted to like it,  but all it did was  make my dry, frizzy and breakage prone hair worse.  I was also (and still I'm) having problems with heavy shedding,  so I thought a protein heavy treament could help my hair,  but obviously I was wrong. I used this twice in conjunction with the shampoo and even used it once with joico ''intense hydrator'' and didn't get good results either. My hair was still dry, straw like and was breaking more easily. I wasn't a fan of its consistancy and the fake chemical banana smell either. I'm glad I returned this product. Keeping it would've been such a waste of money and space.

Delicious scent to your nose, wondeful results on your hair.

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

As a cosmetologist and someone who has been coloring my hair for years I know how damaging coloring your hair can be. This stuff is heaven in a bottle for damaged hair. Whether for dry hair, colored hair, or dull and brittle hair, this stuff is a must. It smells like banana nut bread too! It's very easy to use once a week while in the shower. Just shampoo, apply Joico K-Pak Deep Penetrating Reconstructor and let it sit for 5-10 minutes while you do everything else. It actually goes deep into the hair shaft to repair damage. Doesn't just make your hair look and feel nice, it actually repairs it. You can't get that from your basic conditioner in the shampoo aisle at your nearest store. This product is definitely worst the price and lasts a long time. If you want soft, manageable, luscious hair then this is something you need to try. I've recommended it to all my clients and not one has been disappointed.

Joico K Pak saved my hair!

By 

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

I continually abuse my hair with heat styling everyday, and frequently dying and changing my hair color. After awhile my hair became very damaged. It would break off a lot, it was extremely dry, it would tangle up all the time, and it was very fragile.

For reference, I had medium length naturally straight medium textured hair, but this product would work on any hair type.

I've heard a lot of great things about the Joico K Pak Reconstuctor, and was recommended to try out this product from a few different people.

This product saved my hair. I thought for sure I was going to have to cut all my hair off, but this saved my from having to do that. This restored my hair back to being shiny and silky. My hair was no longer dried out, and my hair didn't feel so crispy anymore. I also noticed that my hair was breaking off a lot less. This reconstructor works in such a short amount of time, it's practically a miracle. It rebuilt my hair without weighing it down, not to mention it smells amazing.

The only thing about the Joico K Pak Reconstructor is that it's not meant for everyday use. You should use it once a week or twice at the maximum. Overuse of products with protein in them can have the reverse effect on your hair, and instead of making it silky and smooth, it can cause it to be brittle and break off. Especially if you leave it in your hair too long as well.

I would totally recommend to try this if you have dry damaged hair.

Effectiveness
This product helps to rebuild your hair after you've continually damaged it. It makes your hair soft and silky. It moisturizes it, and keeps it feeling healthy. My hair stopped breaking off, and wasn't dried out anymore after using this.

Scent
It has the same sort of smell like the Bedhead Dumb Blonde Reconstructor has. It smells slightly like bananas. But it's a very soft and pleasant smell. It smells great even after your hair is dried.

Fixes damaged hair

By 

from USA

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

Had my hair ruined by hair dresses - went from brunette to blonde back to brunette. Getting rid of dead ends with just a hair cut every 3 months is not enough. Using this treatment once a week has really helped improve the split ends in my hair as well as make it grow longer and keep it healthy. Also has that natural shine thanks to this product.

Effectiveness
It is an effective product as it rehydrates your hair, fixing damaged ends and gives that glossy look. It helps rebuild your hair which is beneficial for when colour treatments have gone wrong damaging your precious hair. Hair is difficult to maintain but this product certainly helps.

Scent
The smell of this product is lovely. It is not fragrant free and has a unique scent. It not only smells nice when washing your hair in the shower but even after it has been dried off (blow dryer included) it still smells delightful leaving your hair silky soft and delicious.

Joico K-pak reconstructor works miracles

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

I got this Joico k-pak deep penetraiting reconstructor for free by purchasing the k-pak joico shampoo and conditioner and let me tell you it worked miracles in my hair. My hair is damaged because its blonde and I alwas use heat on my hair so my hair needs extra conditioning to it. it doesn't smell all that great but it does work awesome. Its works deep into your hair and makes it feel smooth after. I noticed the texture of my hair was instantly softer. Its very thick and rich and the ph balance is right in the middle. Its very moisturizing to the hair and penetraits each hair strand. It makes your hair feel healthy and not hard. Its a bit pricey but its totally worth it. I would tell anybody about this product especially for someone who has coarse damaged hair that needs the extra attention. It leaves my hair looking very shiny and my hair feels like it transformed itself. You will be amazed when you try this.

Good product

By 

from USA

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

I bought this product from Armstrong McCalls which is a salon professional store. I like the product it seems to make my hair feel less dry. I found that if I use this product plus the joico kpak intense hydrator that my hair feels a lot healthier. I bleach my hair on a regular basis so my hair is dry and extremely damaged. The deep reconstructor actually works great for me because my hair feels dry and I have tons of fly aways and when I use this product it gives my hair a healthier feel and actually helps repair my hair so that I can continue to bleach and straighten my hair without worrying about it falling out, but it doesn't leave my hair quite as soft as I would like so I added a deep conditioning treatment to my hair regimen and that seems to be working out pretty well. It has a wonderful smell and is very easy to apply. Leaves your hair smelling real good and does undo some of the damage to hair.

Just Excellent!

By 

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

When I found this conditioner about last year, I was looking for something I could keep in my hair overnight and so struggled with purchasing K-PAK because it had so many fine features, but is completely unsuitable to leave in your hair too long due to the protein content. So I threw out my original criteria and started with the trial size tube of Joice KPAK recontructing treatment from Ulta. When I brought it home to use, it turned out I made the right choice as I got everything that I desired to accomplish with an overnight treatment: my hair feeling strong and silky, shiny and healthy - but I was able to accomplish it using KPAK in just 5 minutes! Excellent product!

Effectiveness
Very effective - surprisingly so in such a short amount of time! When I first read the directions, I was concerned because I certainly didn't believe the results I was hoping for could be achieved in just 5 minutes, but I was also conflicted because I knew that leaving a protein heavy product such as is this in my hair for too long is ill-advised. So I went ahead and followed the directions (5 minutes) and was very pleased!

Scent
The scent has a hint of banana, to me anyway.

Perfect for dry, damaged hair

By 

from USA

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

The Joico K-PAK reconstructing line is marvelous for dry, damaged hair. I have long, non-dyed hair that I straighten or curl on a daily basis. My hair starts to feel like straw after a couple months. With the Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor, my hair feels silky smooth and looks much healthier. This is the first product I have used to fix my damaged hair and I don't see myself switching anytime soon. I have been using the product a couple times a month for three months now and I see a large improvement in the way my hair looks and feels. My hairdresser even complemented on how healthy and different my hair looked. Plus, this conditioner is very easy to use! Just wash your hair, let it dry enough such that it is damp and not soaking wet, apply the deep-penetrating reconstructor, put your air up in a towel or clip it up for a couple minutes, then wash it out. I highly recommend this product!

Excellent conditioner

By 

from USA

Comments about Joico K-PAK Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor:

I have seen this product available in Marshalls, Publix and a few other very accessible stores, which I love. I bought it to use as a conditioner. Love it. Very smooth, works great on my color-treated hair. Not too pricey, about what you would expect to pay for a quality hair care product. Smells good also. Because the deep treatment works so well, I'm eager to try other products from this brand, especially the shampoo.

Effectiveness
Leaves my dry, color-treated hair silky and ready to style. Easy to use, in a tube style container. Not messy, not greasy. Doesn't leave my hair feeling weighted down.

Scent
Smells great. Nothing too overbearing but smells clean and soft.
