I purchased both the Joico K-Pak Intense Hydrator and Reconstructor in trial (travel) sizes from Ulta a few months ago to test on my hair before taking the plunge to buy the full sizes, something I highly recommend.  I noticed as I continued to stretch my relaxer that I was suffering breakage - particularly in my crown area.  Many readers suggested giving my hair a protein treatment to combat the issue and you were right, that is exactly what … [Read more...]
