  • K18PEPTIDE™ is a biotech-developed peptide that mimics hair's structure to reverse damage by reconnecting polypeptide chains and disulfide bonds broken during bleaching, color and chemical services + heat*.

  • pH-optimized (5.0-6.0) to help minimize cuticle swelling + put hair proteins in their most resilient state

  • Cream format enables easy, lightweight application across all hair types, with detangling and softening benefits

  • Vegan, color-safe, cruelty-free

Takes damage repair further – reconnects both polypeptide chains (and as a result, also reconnects disulfide bonds) for strength along the length + width of the hair - offering comprehensive, lasting damage repair

Restores hair from even extreme damage - by working at the innermost layer of the hair, core strength and elasticity are renewed for strong, smooth, bouncy hair

Delivers immediate and lasting results – hair is repaired from the first use and lasts past your next wash, for ongoing reparative benefits

Simplified repair - convenient, leave-in formula works in just 4 minutes, with no extra rinse required

Works on all hair types – because K18PEPTIDE™ works on a molecular level (where all hair is the same), this product is effective on all hair types

  1. Shampoo, do not condition. Towel-dry thoroughly
  2. Apply 1-3 pumps of K18 leave-in molecular repair hair mask based on your length and density, starting at the ends and working up towards the roots
  3. Let sit for 4 minutes. Do not rinse out
  4. Comb, add product + style as usual. Use for 4-6 washes post-salon service, then as needed

  • DO clarify before K18 if you’re a heavy product user (demineralize for mineral + metal buildup)
  • DO apply on clean, damp hair
  • DO wait the full 4 minutes before combing or styling
  • DO add whatever styling products you love after the 4 minutes
  • DO use for 4-6 shampoos consecutively for progressive results
  • DON'T use conditioner before applying K18 Mask (you can apply after the 4 min but most find they don’t need it)
  • DON'T overdo it—less is more
  • DON'T rinse it out

The K18 mask works as a treatment to reverse damage in 4 minutes. It’s powered by our biomimetic K18PEPTIDE™ to seamlessly fit in and reconnect broken polypeptide chains at the molecular level. As a result, disulfide bonds are also reconnected for reinforced strength along the length + width of hair—offering comprehensive, lasting, and progressive repair.

*Disclaimers

Conditioner leaves a film that blocks our peptide from penetrating effectively. Once the 4-minute wait time is up, feel free to use a conditioner, a leave-in, or any type of product.

We like to keep our formulas minimal, only using the exact amount of ingredients needed to get the peptide where it needs to go. Here the alcohol serves as an agent to optimize the hair environment for the K18 mask to work on a deeper level. Our unique blend of 3 alcohols functions to open the hair cuticle so the K18PEPTIDE™ can penetrate the innermost layer of hair, reaching the broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains).

Most see results after 2-3 uses. The more damaged the hair, the more dramatic the results so it may vary depending on your hair type and level of damage.

Mirarle mask

This mask has helped me make my hair super soft and manageable. Since I started using K18 products I have noticed my hair is very healthy and I bleach it every 4 weeks. Since I started using k18 my hair doesn't break and my bangs are very thick.

This is the best for damaged hair

Every time my hair has been damaged this has been to only thing to bring life back to it. I’ve tried many products and they are good but nothing works like this for damage.
