How do their products work and how can my clients benefit from them?


K18 = Hair Repair in Just 4 Minutes

Until now, haircare products have fallen into two categories: conditioning treatments that coat hair, or repair treatments that work to patch damage. The K18Peptide™, uses biotech instead of traditional cosmetic chemistry, to reconnect both the interchains and intrachains that make up the structure of the hair. Not only does this repair damage and promote strength and elasticity—it will not wash out with water or shampoo, so hair gets stronger with each treatment.

You Can Use K18 with ALL Salon Services

In addition to provided unmatched damage reversal, K18 is compatible with ALL professional in-salon services. That means you can use K18 during bleach and lightener sessions, color sessions, perms, relaxers, keratin straightener service, haircuts and more. 

How to Apply K18 


1. Before all professional and chemical services, mist hair with water (do not saturate).

2. Apply a generous amount of K18 Mist to hair, section by section.

3. Let sit for 4 minutes to activate. Do NOT rinse out.

4. Dry hair and process as usual.

5. Shampoo, do not condition.
