JOICO K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo, Conditioner and Restorative Styling Oil + InstaTint in Violet Opal, Rose Gold and Amethyst - Review and Swatches

Yesterday on my Instagram feed, I read a quote that said, "Good Hair is the Best Revenge!" with hashtag #MondayMotivation. I laughed at first and then, I thought to myself, good hair day is e-v-e-r-y-thing, so it could be the best thing to flaunt in front of haters everyone.
As much as I love styling my hair, regular heat damage is bothersome, so I make sure I always use the right styling products. The chemical buildup in hair from all the hair sprays, heat protectants, serums, natural oils etc. require a nice hair detox at least two times a week. Joico's K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo is perfect for cleansing hair and I follow with the K-PAK Conditioner and the Restorative Styling Oil before I blowdry.  Once a week I like to apply K-PAK Lustre Lock mask for insanely smooth, shiny hair! I love the K-PAK line from Joico - it works wonders for my long hair and makes me fall in love with my hair, again and again.
More on the K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Oil and three shades of these super fun InstaTints, on the blog today!

K-PAK CLARIFYING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

This is a great shampoo and conditioner for anyone who doesn't like to shampoo hair often, either to protect their hair color or ... just because they are lazy like me cuz washing, drying and styling long hair requires more time - like it could literally take me an hour!  So I rely on products that keep my hair and scalp clean for longer and ensure that any buildup due to styling products or lack of washing, is cleansed thoroughly.

K-PAK Clarifying Shampoo gives my hair a deep clean that I can literally feel when I wash my hair, and at the same time, it protects hair from cuticle to cortex with its Bio Advanced Peptide Complex. I leave this shampoo on for about a minute before rinsing, especially if my hair was loaded with hair sprays. It leaves them tangle free and moisturized. I always follow with the K- PAK Conditioner.

K-PAK Conditioner contains keratin silicone complex which locks in moisture, smooths out hair and results in shiny and nourished hair without weighing them down. I apply this right after rinsing off the Clarifying Shampoo and leave in for about a minute or two. Rinse and towel dry. Once a week, I do the Lustre Lock for that shiny hair, you guys loved so much on my Instagram


K-PAK COLOR THERAPY RESTORATIVE STYLING OIL

This argan oil based styling oil is loaded with nourishing peptides and keratin. It works with the hair structure to protect it from damaging. It can be used as a leave in treatment by applying to damp hair. I emulsify one full pump in my hands and work it through my hair, starting from the ends up. One pump is enough for my damp hair and then I style/blowdry them. I can also apply a pump or two, to dry hair for added shine. It has a light fresh scent that did not bother me at all.



JOICO INSTATINTS

I had so much fun with these. They are perfect for a 'Girls' Night In' and they last only one shampoo. I can even just brush it out and its gone. It can be layered for more intensity and shimmer, but on my dark hair Amethyst shows up more than Rose Gold and Violet Opal. I still like it, even though the glitters can be messy and they are all over my bathroom counter. Its wipes off completely but please protect your clothing before spraying this. Next time, I will spray it on in my shower, like I do for tanning products. It holds up the style or the curl, since it technically is a hair spray but it can be easily brushed out and does not make my hair crunchy or greasy. So if you wanna add a little shimmer and color to your hair, this is a quick way to do it.
