What is K18 hair?
K18 hair is a ground-breaking brand that offers products that do what no other hair treatment can do – in double time!
Having spent a decade researching hair and what truly heals it, the K18 team discovered a miracle molecule, quickly patenting and trademarking decapeptide, which reverses damage in the hair caused by bleach, blow-drying, curling, straightening, heat, and mechanical styling.
So, how does the K18Peptide™ work? Simply put, this active ingredient carries amino acids deep into the structure of the hair, repairing and reconnecting the keratin chains. In the process, the hair is healed from the inside out rather than just superficially on the surface.
Rather than offer a short-term solution and temporary fix for repairing hair, the K18 hair mask deeply restores forever.
What K18 hair products should I buy?
In-salon, choose the K18 repair mist with the K18 hair mask.
At home, the K18 Hair Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask leave-in treatment is ideal for long-term, lustrous results.
Are peptides good for your hair?
Peptides are small chain amino acids, which act as protein-rich building blocks that strengthen and fortify hair. The K18 trademarked and patented decapeptide is a chain of ten amino acids that offer unsurpassed repair and nourishment.
How do you use the leave-in hair mask?
Using the K18 Hair Mask is simple. Here are the steps you need to know:
1. Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo (try the Paul Mitchell value-for-money one litre bottle ) which is ideal if you regularly use styling products or dry shampoo.
2. Do not use conditioner as the K18 hair masks work best on entirely cleansed hair.
3. Towel dry your hair and apply the K18 hair mask, one pump at a time. Build up if needed for longer or thicker hair. Distribute evenly through your hair, from ends to roots.
4. Allow the product to work its magic for four minutes.
5. Style your hair using any hair product you usually use - but only after the four minutes are up!
6. If you will blow-dry or use a straightener, always apply a heat protectant first. You can even use a leave-in conditioner if your hair is crying out for more moisture but remember to wait four minutes before applying any product so the K18 mask can work its magic!
7. For best results, use the mask every 4-6 shampoos.
Just remember, although the K18 mask is different from a conditioner, it is not designed to replace it altogether. See how your hair reacts. Some people find they can forego a conditioner when using K18 regularly. Take the time to find what works for you.
