is it silicone-free ?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2012
Best Answer: It appears from the ingredient list that the fifth ingredient is amodimethicone, which would indicate a silicone product, although I am not a chemist. Hope this helps.

Directions how to use.?
A shopper on May 20, 2013
Best Answer: The package directions suggest leaving it in your hair for 3 minutes or so but after using this product for about a year I have found that I get the best results when I towel dry then apply a generous amount to my hair (concentrating on the ends and hairline) and leave it for 30 minutes to an hour. Rinse and style as usual. The results are fabulous. Soft and silky without that greasy feel that so many intensive treatments leave. I highly recommend this product, especially for blond hair that tends to look oily with many conditioners.

How should you use this product?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2012
Best Answer: Apply after you shampoo. Remove excess water from your hair, then massage a spoonful of this product. I use it once a week since this product has a stronger conditioning power than your typical daily conditioner.

I am unsure if this is a hair pack or conditioner ??? Should I put it on dry hair or should I use it aftr shampooing my hair ??
A shopper on Jan 10, 2016
Best Answer: This is a conditioning hair pack. I dampen my hair and then put it on, leave it for about half an hour, and rinse it off without using shampoo, let my hair air dry. The next day, instead of using shampoo, I just rinse again. This is the best conditioner I've found for curly hair. You'll be amazed at how soft and manageable your hair will be.

A shopper on Apr 26, 2015

Do I need to rinse this product off my hair or leave it on after my shower?
ITZEL S on Dec 6, 2012
Best Answer: You will need to rinse, it is definitely not a leave-in conditioner. However, I usually leave it in for several hours on a Saturday or Sunday as my weekly deep-conditioning before rinsing out.

can a 12yr old girl use this product?
A shopper on Jun 12, 2012
Best Answer: I don't see why not, it is a wonderful, "the best" ever product to use after shampooing hair, esp for people with curly hair. I love to layer products and use this first and often add the Kiehl's sunflower conditioner or other favorie products. I always use this one first, Hope she loves it as I do

What are the directions for using this product? Thank you.
Susan Y on Apr 15, 2012
Best Answer: Honestly, it depends on the type of hair you have. if you have normal hair, use it once a month. Towel dry hair and leave it on for about 5-10 minutes and rinse. I have curly, colored, dry hair. I use in place of my regular conditioner - about 1 tablespoon and work it in well, leave it in for a few minutes and then rinse. It's stronger than regular conditioner and makes my hair less dry.

Should I wet my hair before applying it?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2017
Best Answer: I always wash my hair first, then apply a very generous amount of the restorative hair Pak. I then leave it on my hair for a minimum of 20 minutes, and rinse.

That being said, I'd imagine that there would be a similar effect if I just applied it to dry hair, as I am convinced that the pal is the single most effective product available for dry and/or damaged hair.

How can i use it ?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2016
Best Answer: I have very thick curly hair which can be frizzy in humid hot weather. I have used this conditioner for years and I could not do without it. After conditioning with it I always leave a little of it in during the rinsing of my hair. For me it makes each and every curl defined. I even use it in between washes by applying a very small amount in my dry or damp hair and it just brings life to my hair making the curls defined and bouncy. I would recommend this to any one with a similar hair type. It took me a long time to find a product that could make my hair look this way! Maybe it would do the same for you!

Can I leave this on my hair overnight? Would it be harmful in any way?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2016
Best Answer: One night the hot water went out in my building. I had just put the oil pack on. So I had to leave it on all night. There's no benefit to leaving it on all night. It works best if you leave it in for half an hour. But anyway… It was pretty hard by morning, and while there was no harm, it didn't have the usual good effect.
