Regular readers will know that I like to indulge in a Sunday pamper session, which includes using a clarifying shampoo followed by a hair mask. I've recently been trialling the rather scientific sounding Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment, which contains a blend of Jojoba Oil, Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera Juice & Evening Primrose Oil to protect against damage, breakage and dehydration, whilst also preventing colour fade.
The gold and black packaging of the outer box and tube looks high-end and is in keeping with the salon branding. I appreciated the functionality of the tube presentation, which allows for hygienic and controlled dispensing without wastage. I also liked that the directions were clear and easy to follow. What's more, the fact that the mask gets to work in just 3-5 minutes means that it is convenient to incorporate into my routine.
The smooth formula meant that it was easy to work the mask through my hair and it was also relatively effortless to rinse out.
The scent wasn't to my personal liking. To me, it seems to be a weird blend reminiscent of melon, milk & honey and the combination reminded me of the scent of hair removal cream! That said, it's not an overpowering fragrance during use and once my hair was dried & styled, it simply lingered as a subtle & inoffensive freshness.
Following use, I was wowed by how super shiny my hair was left looking. My fine hair wasn't weighed down but instead felt silky soft. Overall, I was impressed with Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe Bio-Advanced Restorative Treatment and whilst I don't love it as much as my beloved Macadamia Deep Repair Masque (reviewed here), I'd still recommend it, particularly to those with damaged hair. At £16.95 for 150ml, it's not the cheapest mask but nor is it the most expensive and I feel that it offers good value for money.
