I wish I could for the life of me remember my first PK encounter but I can’t, all I know is that it has been a serious love story since then and this has to be one of my longest running staples! I couldn’t believe I had yet to officially review this here on the blog, so let’s just say this is exactly that – an official review!

My Thoughts Could it be any more obvious, I absolutely adore this product solely based on the effects it has on my hair as the price tag most certainly isn’t appealing! This product does four main things for my hair, well at least from what I notice, it softens, detangles, protects and increases elasticity. I use this product at least twice a month and upon application it instantly smooths out my hair and any tangles or knots that linger on from a long worn twist out. It literally emulates clay and conforms your hair to any shape you mold it. I’ve become so used to using this product that I find no shampoo I use after it has managed to dry out my hair to the point of worry and all in all, well, it’s a pretty great product! [Transitioners this was one of my absolutely must haves during my transition FYI!] For those wondering how far the £27.50 goes well I’ve thus far used my 150ml on 4 wash days and there is still half of the tub left, mind you I use this fortnightly as opposed to weekly as advised on the PK website!
