This time, I swear, is different.
I started using Joico's KPAK Liquid Reconstructor before every blow dry and flatiron session. And it's totally working.
First of all, the mist that comes out of this spray bottle is a perfect, portioned amount. Each section (I do three when I blow dry) requires only one or two spritzes and I'm set.
Pegged as an "intense, leave-in liquid protein spray," it gives hair strength, shine and elasticity without adding weight (oh, and it smells pretty darn good, too!).
