As we all know, from time to time products change their packaging or…sniff…gulp…our favorite products are discontinued. Although today’s tale is such a tale, do not despair for I come bearing good news. Yes, it is true. Joico has revamped their packaging and have laid to rest some of their products. Calm down, I told you not to despair. Take a breath, get a tissue or a shot of bourbon and collect yourself. This is a company that cares about it’s customers and they do their best to provide the best service and the best product for their customers. Joico has given a road map if you will of what products they suggest would be a suitable replacement for your beloved product and I have such road map and am sharing it with you. See?!? No need for tears or tantrums.
Here you go;

Loved the jioco flex control pliable paste now its discontinued what is the replacement cannt find anything I like help
Hi there Gloria😊
It was a great product. The closet product to it is by KMS California, their Molding Paste. A bit of a stronger hold but gives the same result. Hope this helps!
Let us know if you ended up finding a suitable replacement. I’m about to pay $45 for a tube of the joico flex control pliable paste on ebay because I’m desperate and trust nothing else.
I am disappointed that the Joico Daily Care Moisturizer product has been discontinued. You list Daily Care Conditioner as its replacement. However, I am used to using both of these products together for best results. I noticed on their Web site though, that there are two kinds of Daily Care Conditioner now. This seems confusing to me.
Is there another product from a different company like KMS that might sell something like the Daily Care Moisturizer?
Joico does offer 2 Daily Care Conditioners – one is Daily Care, the other is Daily Care Balancing. If you want something closer to Daily Care Moisturizer you may want to try KMS Moist Repair…the line has 2 products that may fit the bill. Moist Repair therapy treatment (a rinse out) & Moist Repair revival creme ( a leave in).
Wow! Thanks for the quick reply. I think I’ll give the Moist Repair therapy treatment (rinse out) a try.
Looked all over for a job lot of Joico Brilliantine Pomade to no avail! Nothing has replaced this product! I am sad but will go on with not perfect hair. 😥😥😥😥
Try Senscience Pliable Shine, I found it to be quite similar.
Hi , Could you please tell me what product has replaced the Joico Silk Result Straight Smoother? I can only find a product that replaces the Thermal Smoother. Many thanks, Monica
Hi Monica. I would try the Joico Kpak Smoothing Balm. It is Humidity Resistant and it helps to repair the hair as well. Hope this helps!
Have a great day!

Iam a salon owner and i will say that iam not happy with the hairspray once again, joi mist, it is leaving a residue on the hair which in turn looks like build up, iam not impressed since i do alot of updo’s and brides, please rethink your new spray
I was advised to purchase the Joico smooth cure as a replacement for the Joico silk result (which I loved). The smooth cure made my hair oily, heavy and dull ((I hated it). I spent quite a bit for both the shampoo and conditioner and now no longer use it. I was subsequently advised to try the Joico moisture recovery which is better but no where as good as the silk result. I am extremely disappointed the silk result was discontinued.
Hi Karen! Some of my customers found the Smooth Cure a little heavy too as it is formulated for more curly/coarse hair. It is sulfate free and I found my customers were using too much of the product. If you want to try another line KMS Silk Sheen is quite similar to the Joico silk result. Hope this helps 🙂
Thank you for the info and your prompt response! 🙂
