Benefits of K18 Products

Based on deep science, these products have revolutionized hair care by delivering unmatched benefits. While most haircare products on the market provide temporary hydration and damage repair solutions, this brand's products go deeper.

  1. Their patented K18Peptide molecule works with the body’s natural processes to reverse hair damage, providing long-lasting results.
  2. There is a tremendous loss of elasticity and strength in damaged hair. K18's Biomimetic products help treat hair damage from heat, chemical, and colour treatments
  3. These products seep deep into the hair fibre and remain there to reverse hair damage and strengthen hair in one pump.

In the words of Jordan Alexander, director of global sales & education at K18 Hair, “By going to the innermost layers of hair, biomimetic hair science can renew hair’s core strength and elasticity to bring hair back to its near original, youthful state.”

Common Customers' Questions About K18

What is a leave-in molecular repair hair mask?

A leave-in molecular repair hair mask is a treatment mask that does not need to be rinsed off with water after application. It is designed to be left in the hair and gets absorbed into the deeper layers of the hair, providing nourishment and repair without the need for rinsing.

How does the molecular repair hair mask work?

The molecular repair hair mask, specifically using K18Peptide – the miracle molecule, penetrates the hair strand and reaches the polypeptide chains within the hair's core. It works to rebuild the broken chains to maintain hair strength and restore optimal hair health.

Is the K18 product range free of sulfates?

Yes, the K18 product range is free of sulfates, parabens, silicones, phthalates, sodium chloride, formaldehyde, formaldehyde donors, and artificial colors.

Is K18 safe?

Yes, K18 products are completely safe and vegan. They are also color-free, cruelty-free, and tested by dermatologists for prescribed use.

What do you mean by biomimetic?

Biomimetic products mimic the natural structure of hair types and the keratin proteins present in the core of your hair. This repairs the broken polypeptide chains, helping to enhance hair health in the long term.

Is the K18 product range organic?

No, the K18 haircare product range uses both natural and synthetically derived ingredients to provide the safest and most effective hair care products that customers can use.

Should I use conditioner before the molecular repair hair mask?

No, you don’t need to use conditioner before your leave-in molecular repair hair mask. The brand recommends cleansing your hair and towel-drying thoroughly before using its leave-in treatment hair mask. Within just four minutes, the actives in the molecular repair hair mask begin to reverse the hair damage.

Can I use K18 shampoo every day?

Yes, K18 pH maintenance shampoos are formulated within a pH level of 5.0 and 6.0, meaning they are safe enough for daily use without drying out the hair. Be sure to follow up with a leave-in molecular repair hair mask.
