Dry Brittle Hair this Winter


It never fails, each and every Winter I fight a battle with dry brittle hair. Another concern is all the static that comes with the dryness, and this includes my 3 girls too.

Years ago I used the Joico brand exclusively, mainly because my then kid-free self was often found in salons. These days, I opt for drug-store brand hair care for convenience, and thus haven’t used Joico in quite some time.

I guess that’s a lame excuse though, since I am in malls just the same. Most times shopping for the kids or household items, I really need to think of a quick-stop to treat myself. A new line to consider? Joico’s K-PAK!

Termed Winter Hair Revivers, this line is made for rehydrating your tresses {thus beating dryness}. Joico’s K-PAK line works to repair damage by restoring the hair’s cuticle and moisture. Working synergistically to rebuild, reconstruct, strengthen and protect damaged hair, the K-PAK line locks in the hair’s moisture giving your strands lustrous shine and a silky smooth touch.

K-PAK RevitaLuxe Bio Advanced Restorative Treatment:

  • Repairs and restores years of damage instantly by reconstructing the hair structure from the inside out.
  • Corrects and protects strands with regular use. Transforms overly-stressed and compromised strands into luxuriously soft, strong and healthy hair.
  • Suggested retail price: $24.95

K-PAK Liquid Reconstructor:

  • This intense leave-in reconstructive liquid protein spray offers fine hair strength, shine and support without added weight.
  • Fine, lifeless hair has restored vitality, strength and elasticity.
  • Clinical results show benefits equal to Deep-Penetrating Reconstructor.
  • Suggested retail price: $25.35

K-PAK Shampoo:

  • Begins the reconstruction process using a unique cream foundation enriched with Joico’s exclusive Keratin Silicone Complex.
  • Gently cleanses the hair while enhancing its elasticity, strength and shine.
  • Suggested retail price: $16.75

K-PAK Conditioner:

  • Reconstructs, strengthens and detangles dry, damaged hair with K Keratin Silicone Complex. Hair feels smooth, silky and shiny with vitality and bounce.
  • Suggested retail price: $19.99

K-PAK Intense Hydrator:

  • Replenishes moisture and lipids to overly dry, damaged hair, rendering it manageable, soft, shiny and hydrated. Seals the cuticle and improves elasticity.
  • Suggested retail price: $20.25

While I’m not entirely crazy about the shampoo {my hair is so hard to please, quite the diva}, I do very much like the RevitaLuxe Bio Advanced Restorative Treatment. I have long, straight hair that gets easily tangled with washing, yet this treatment made it so simple to comb through. As well, the softness that results lasts until the next wash. More importantly, for the last month I haven’t been sporting that crazy static that I always do when Winter hits.

I wouldn’t say to run out and try the entire line, that’s rarely needed nor done when it comes to hair care products. Yet, if you think your locks need a kickstart to last until a warmer season, check out one or two of the products and see if it helps you in your battle.

One Canadian reader is going to get the K-PAK shampoo, conditioner and the Revitaluxe deep conditioning treatment.
