What is K18 leave-in molecular repair hair mask?
A leave-in treatment mask for all hair types that clinically reverses damage in 4 minutes. The patented peptide technology works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services & heat – restoring strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to hair.
How do I use K18 leave-in molecular repair hair mask?
Start by using K18 after the first 4-6 washes. Then switch to maintenance mode for a boost of renewed strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce once every 3-5 washes.
1) Shampoo, do not condition.
2) Towel dry thoroughly.
3) Part hair into equal sections. Begin with 1 pump of K18 Mask and add more as needed depending on length, thickness, and condition. Work evenly into hair from ends to roots, one pump at a time.
4) Let sit for 4 minutes to activate. Do NOT rinse out.
5) Style as usual.
what is the science behind the K18 leave-in molecular repair hair mask?
When hair gets damaged, the polypeptide chains (keratin chains) that make up the inner structure of hair strands become weakened and break. For context, there are billions and billions of polypeptide chains (keratin chains) in a single strand of hair. When these are damaged, hair’s core structure responsible for elasticity and strength becomes compromised and as a result it loses its resiliency and shine—or the look and feel of healthy hair.
After spending a decade in the lab scanning and testing all amino acid sequences across the entire keratin genome that makes up human hair searching for a breakthrough, we discovered one unique sequence (a bioactive peptide) that brings damaged hair back to its original, youthful state. This is our K18Peptide™.
Traveling deeper into the inner layers of hair than traditional repair products, our revolutionary peptide is just the right size and makeup to fit in and reconnect those broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains). And because our peptide is a bit of an overachiever, as a result of this reconnection, any disturbed disulfide bonds are also re-conformed.Our peptide employs biomimetics to get the job done. To put it simply: Biomimetics is the practice of learning from and mimicking nature. Mimicking the natural structure of keratin building blocks (amino acid sequences), our K18 bioactive peptide is recognized as natural by the hair. It’s not washed away by water or shampoo like traditional bonding agents either, making K18 a genuine, lasting solution for damaged strands.
