skip the conditioner
Conditioners coat hair making it harder for our K18Peptide ™ to effectively penetrate strands and get into the inner layers of hair. We like to skip it so the peptide can get right to damage sites without interruption. If strands need a little more love, you can add a leave-in conditioner once the initial 4-minute wait period is over.
Excessive scalp buildup can also make it harder for the K18Peptide ™ to effectively penetrate strands. If hair is heavy on product use or residue, start with a clarifying treatment before K18 use to clear out anything that may block our peptide from getting where it needs to go.
Damage is ongoing, so use of K18 should be too. As a leave-in, K18 is a progressive treatment that delivers better results the more you use it.
less is more
When it comes to the Pro Mask, don’t oversaturate hair. Due to the concentrated nature of the K18 molecular repair hair mask, a little goes a long way. Refer to our dosage chart to find the optimal amount for each client’s hair type and service.
more is more
When using the K18 Mist the more the merrier. Apply a generous amount of K18 Mist to hair, section by section.
