A breakthrough in biosciences

Our K18Peptide™ was patented after scanning and analyzing 1,242 decapeptides that cover the entire genome of human keratin proteins. After a decade of research, we discovered one unique sequence unlocking the science to bring strands damaged from chemical services and thermal/mechanical styling back to their original, youthful state — the K18Peptide. Patented K18 is not just a temporary fix — it’s the first product to utilize biomimetics to reconnect keratin chains once broken by bleach, color, and chemical services, resulting in soft, smooth, strong hair with bounce that feels like new. The more damaged the hair, the more dramatic the results.

This is BIOMIMETIC HAIRSCIENCE — and it heals hair in just 4 minutes.

An at-home leave-in treatment infused with our patented K18Peptide™ that works to repair even the most extreme damage, renewing hair to its most youthful, healthy state.

REPAIRS DAMAGE CAUSED BY

Bleach + Color
Heat
Chemical Services

This patented bioactive peptide treatment strengthens and improves elasticity while reversing damage from chemical services, thermal styling, and mechanical styling. For all hair types.

Hair like new. This leave-in mask heals and strengthens hair with lightweight moisturizing benefits to detangle and keep hair smooth and soft, without weighing it down.

The 5mL starter size is a 2-application dose for most hair types. Please see dosage chart for exact usage. For best results, use on consecutive washes.

  1. Shampoo, do not condition. Towel dry until damp.
  2. Begin with 1 pump of K18 Mask and add more as needed depending on the length, thickness, and condition. Work evenly into hair, one pump at a time, from ends to roots.
  3. Let sit for 4 minutes to activate.
  4. Do NOT rinse out. Style as usual.

the do’s and don’ts

  • Do use a clarifying shampoo if you’re a heavy product or dry shampoo user.
  • Do dry thoroughly with hair towel or turban before application.
  • Do wait the full 4 minutes before styling or applying another product.
  • DO use every 4-6 shampoos consecutively to see and feel the full results.
  • DON’T condition your hair before applying K18.
  • DON’T use too much.
  • DON’T rinse it out.

how does k18 work?

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™.

what is the k18peptide™?

Our patented peptide is a unique sequence of amino acids that travels deep into hair’s core structure to fit in and reconnect broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains) responsible for hair strength and elasticity. An Analogy: When building proteins, the order of the amino acids determines the kind of protein and its properties, much like the way letters are arranged to make meaningful words and sentences. In the same way the order and where each word sits in a sentence leads to its overall meaning, K18 is the magic word that fits right in, integrating itself with the keratin chains as the hair recognizes it as a natural building block.

why should i skip conditioner?

K18 is most effective on clean, towel-dried hair. Conditioners use silicones and conditioning agents that form heavy coatings on hair, preventing our peptide from reaching the broken polypeptide chains deep inside hair’s inner layer.

i noticed there’s alcohol in the formula, isn’t that bad for you?

We like to keep our formulas minimal, only using the exact amount of ingredients needed to get the peptide where it needs to go. Our unique blend of 3 alcohols function to open up the hair cuticle so the K18Peptide ™ can penetrate the inner most layer of hair, reaching the broken polypeptide chains (keratinchains). Here the alcohol serves as an agent to optimize the hair environment for K18 to work on a deeper level.

when should i expect to see results?

You will start to see stronger, softer, healthier hair after just one use.
