If you like Pina Coladas…

…You’ll love Joico‘s K-PAK sun therapy line.
As you’ve probably seen in my photos I have very long, waist length hair. People often ask me how I keep it looking healthy considering that I’m a bandit for a bit of GHD action and I’m in a heavily chlorinated pool at least 5 days a week.
Well. There’s no real trick apart from a thorough trim every 6 weeks and a good quality yet extremely simple moisturising hair regime to protect against the nasties that are sun, chemical (like that of chlorine or hair colouring) and heat damage.
You’re probably wondering what’s the dealio with the title of this post? Well, the best part (apart from great looking hair…duh) is the smell of the sun therapy products. MY GOD. It smells like coconut tanning oil with an added sweetness which makes me feel and smell like I’ve been bathing in cocktails….mmmm cocktails.
The secret of the sun therapy products is that it helps to re-build the damage caused by the sun while also protecting it from future damage.
This is done with the use of aloe vera, covabsorb EW (a strong UV protectant) and Quadramine complex which features the hair’s naturally forming Keratin to increase strength and overall health. (You’ve probably heard of Keratin for the recent breakthrough Global Keratin treatment which adds a tonne of life back to dry hair as well as straightening it)
For anyone who does any kind of the things we’re told NOT to but just HAVE to do to our hair; like colouring and straightening, you can never have too many Keratin or moisture replenishing products.
The Joico K-PAK sun therapy collection features three gorgeous products:
- K-PAK sun therapy nourishing shampoo
- K-PAK sun therapy treatment masque
- K-PAK sun therapy Protective sun milk
While I use the shampoo and masque religiously, my fave of the three would have to be the sun milk which works as a handy detangler, pretty smelling hair mist and makes my hair feel protected (just as my face or body would with sunblock) against UV rays- while also doing it’s job of moisturising and conditioning.
For those of you who know how important it is to use sunblock daily, then this range is definitely for you.
And while we’re on the topic of Joico- anyone who just needs a fantastic treatment for dry, brittle hair should try the Moisture Recovery Treatment Lotion from the moisture recovery line. Used even once a week you will notice an immense difference in the condition and overall look of your hair, especially for those of you who colour and/or heat style it.
Does anyone else swear by Joico products? What are your faves?
