-Rinse, towel-dry, and apply a liberal amount of the pak to damp hair evenly, concentrating on hair ends
-Allow formula to remain on hair for a minimum of three minutes (Allowing hair pak to remain on hair for longer periods of time will increase its efficacy)
-Rinse well with lukewarm water until formula is thoroughly removed from hair
-Style as usual

A-prih-kaht KUR-nuhl OY-il

Apricot Kernel Oil is extracted from apricot kernels and has a very high Vitamin E content (aiding fast absorption) and is a trygliceride composed of 75% oleic acid and 20% linoleic acid, and unsaturated fatty acids esterified with glycerin - similar to avocado oil and sesame oil. Found to be highly compatible with the skin. Apricot Kernel Oil moisturizes and softens skin while helping retain clarity and suppleness.

SUN-flah'-wur OY-il

Sunflower Oil contains beneficial amounts of Phospholipids as well as high concentrations of Ceramides. Its strengthening and protective agents help to further nurture and condition dry or damaged skin. The resilient Sunflower extract is also known to care for sun-exposed and aging skin as a result of environmental aggression.

Marian K: I bought this product for the first time and here are no instructions on the package. There is no package...... just the jar with no instructions and from the answers to this question, everyone uses it differently - some leave it on 3 or 5 minutes. ..others for a hour to get good results. It would be nice if the directions came from Keihl's. Mar 21, 2014

jeanne n: I have been using this product after every shampoo the way I would use a conditioner. I take a very small amount, spread it on both hands and then distribute in my hair. I leave it in for about five minutes or until I finish my shower. Along with the sunflower shampoo, this product gives my white/gray hair a bit of sheen and a soft texture. I have been using this product for about two years and find it very economical as well as effective for my type of hair. Good luck. Jun 9, 2012

Elizabeth J: There are directions on the package to put a generous amount on your hair and let sit for at least 3 minutes, then rinse. I like to leave it in for at least 5 since my hair gets pretty dry and it really does the trick.

I really like this product!

A shopper asked: Does this product contain sulfates? Sep 15, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
jeanne n: The product label does not advertise that it is sulfate free, so I assume that it is not so. I use it as a complement to the Sunflower shampoo, which is sulfate free, and which works nicely on my mainly white/silver hair which is not colored but is glazed regularly. These products seem to help my hair retain both softness and sheen, so I am a regular user of both.
Don't know if that helps you or not.

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Julia P: I have been using this for at least four years now, and my husband is also addicted. My grown daughter also loves it. None of us use related shampoo product, brand-wise, and all of us use this as our regular conditioner, not in the 'recovery pak' way for which it is, I guess, intended. A tiny bit goes a long way. And I just use it on ends of my hair and ends of shorter layers. Jan 30, 2013
Reply to Julia Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Leslie F: I use another brand shampoo and conditioner as well, but LOVE the recovery pak. I use it twice a week and it keeps my hair conditioned, smooth, and helps preserve the color. I use it twice a week, but always before a special occasion b/c it makes my hair look fabulous! Jan 30, 2013
Reply to Leslie Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Julia P: Just an addition to my previous answer --
We do put this on in the shower and then try to let it stay on for at least the few minutes it takes to do the rest of showering before rinsing out.
