Hair expression comes in many forms—embracing your curls, adding extensions, a color refresh, you name it. The common link? Damage. Don’t stress you or your strands outK18 has all human hair damage handledlike allll of it 

Let’s dive in.  

FUNdamentals 07: How does K18 work with my hair type routine?

Hair add-ons 

Hair makeovers have never been easier, just pop into salon for human hair extensions, pieces, wigs, you name it, you got it. But just like the hair on your headany type of hair addition undergoes all the same damage you put your natural hair through. Think of all the bleach + color, chemical services, and heat used to spruce them up, that eventually wears them down. Yikes. This is where K18 comes in, restoring core strength + elasticity—by repairing those broken keratin chains—to prolong your investment for many wears to come  

So the short answer is, yes. To maintain the integrity of any human hair wig, piece, or extensionyou can use K18. Clarify apply K18 like you normally would just focus on the mid-length to the ends of hair, avoiding any adhesive at the base. If you have human hair like a sew-in extensionuse K18 as usual, just don’t overdo it. Even with all that extra hair, less is more here—start with 1ml (1 pump of the 50ml Mask, 3 pumps of the 15ml Mask) and add ½ ml more at a time to cover any strands you missed.   

PRO TIP: Wig caps can trap sweat + buildup, causing major stress to your strandsTreat the hair underneath the wig with some TLC too! Add an extra detox before K18 for optimal peptide penetration.

Curly–coily hair 

3c–4c hair types ask us a lotgreat, but does it work for my hair? Yes, it does. Since hair is identical on the molecular level at the innermost layer of hair (the polypeptide chains) where K18 is patented to work—K18 has your back, renewing stressed + damaged strands for bouncy curls and coils again.

When you’re in between styles, use our repair treatment on any human hair to renew lost strengthTo detangle or get the finished look + feel you want, feel free to add a leave-in or styling product 4 minutes after K18 application. Our damage repair treatment will handle the rest.
