Joice K Pak User Questions

My hair was colored yesterday and they suggested I use the K Pak Intense Hydratiing Conditioner every 2 weeks. Leave it on for 5 minutes and rinse as a DT. I thought there was also a heavy duty K Pak Deep Treatment Reconstructor which some had used here. I asked about it and was told it was absolutely necessary on my hair. Believe me after all over color, I feel like I need something!

For K Pak Users -

1) How soon can I use these products after color? They used the K Pak conditioner after color yesteday.

2) Should I find the K Pak DT and use it before the Intense Cond? Does is make a big difference? How often do you use it?

3) I think I remember people commenting on a generic from Sally's which worked as well? Is there one?

This will be a DP on the color board.


TIA!

    I also get my hair colored, as well as highlighted, and my stylist told me to DT 10 days before and 10 days after color. In between, she said weekly was good or at the very least, every 2 weeks.

    There is a generic brand of the K-Pak at Sally's, but I can't think of the exact name. Also, when I use a protein DT, I always use a moisturizing conditioner afterwards.

    HTH!

    Thanks for the info. I've always just DT'd with Jessicurl or Deva products. I've never tried a protein DT. However, lately I've been using a private line of products heavy in protein which my hair seems to really like. Too many years of color, I guess :)

    I've tried CG for several years and never been able to accomplish the soft, healthy hair which others acquire. I'm hoping maybe it was the missing protein piece. It gets discouraging BUT I do have far more curl than the pre CG days.

    I used to use the reconstructor, I loved it.

    Just another question about any who used the reconstructor.

    did anyone else find it moisturizing? I used to use that stuff all the time, without ever doing a DT afterwards. And then I read that protein treatments were drying and should be followed by a DT and I was :shock: if anything my hair felt over conditioned that day.
