Hello! Is it me or did this week just FLY by?! Well in any case, I'm glad the weekend is here! =) Today I'm reviewing Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Restorative Styling Oil. This (along with a shampoo and conditioner) is Joico's answer to Moroccanoil, though some people who have used it claim Joico's is better. I've never actually tried Moroccanoil, so I can't make that comparison, but I'm a huge fan of this product and it's definitely going to be a staple in my product collection! This oil is effective as a leave-in treatment and as a styling product, and I use it as both!
[...] In addition the kernel is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, thiamine, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, and has extraordinarily high concentrations (around 560mg per 100 grams of kernel) of vitamin E (almost entirely as g-tocopherol). The large proportion of this essential linoleic acid (EFA), as well as the conjugated trienoic acid (α Eleostearic) mean that the oil is of huge importance for skin protection, both for hydration but also for the restructuring and regeneration of the epidermis. In particular the α Eleostearic acid reacts rapidly with UV light producing polymerisation and providing a protective layer. The very high g-tocopherol content also provides the oil with enhanced stability, this is proven in the African heat where the oil does not become rancid.I don't know about you, but I'm going to look for more products with mongongo oil!
