Joico Kpak question
« on: 15 Aug 14 / 12:29 AM »
Hi :)
I used the GVP version of Kpak for the first time today. Before that, I clarified with L'oreal Everpure and afterwards the GVP Matrix Conditioning Balm.
After airdrying my hair feels terrible, there's places where I had trouble combing it through, and my hair feels frizzy on the sides. Normally it never frizzes, and I can not comb it for 3 washes a.k.a 6 days and get through it without problem.
I know that Everpure does sometimes have similar effects but not as bad, and not with Condish after.
Both other products I never used before.
The Kpak would spread very hardly and didn't foam at all, I left it in for around 20 min, when I rinsed it it suddenly started foaming a bit. Seems weird to me.
The Matrix stuff was left in for around 5 Minutes.
Anyone got a clue what's up with that, is that normal, or what did I do wrong?

What is the reason you're using the protein?

I have to be really careful as my hair hates it. I only use it after I've just bleached, and then sparingly. Too much protein can be pretty bad for some of us.

Also, it won't foam. I don't know the conditioner, so I don't know if its a good enough one to use after protein.

The GVP Matrix Conditioning Balm is one of the best cone free conditioners I've ever used.  I have also used the GVP Kpak with great results.  But, my hair LOVES protein - the more I give it, the better it feels.  Some people's hair, like Janine's, do not like it at all and react poorly to it.  Have you used protein before?

I've only used Coconut Oil before and it felt awesome, like hair in haircolour ads :D
I wanted to try Kpak because my hair feels pretty thin and weak these days, and I don't really have time to Coconut oil for so long.

I dye it black with a demi with 3% peroxide, around every 4 weeks roots and every 2 or 3 months completely. the tips have been bleached before, so it's probably pretty damaged.
