Strengthening, smoothing hair oil works on two levels of the hair fiber to fight frizz.

The K18PEPTIDE™ works to address deeper-level damage that causes frizz—repairing and strengthening damage at the innermost layer of hair to reverse damage that leads to frizz.

On the surface of hair, natural oils like avocado and sunflower oil, and hemisqualane and squalane nourish while smoothing frizz + flyaways to improve color vibrancy, enhance shine, and provide 450°F (232°C) heat protection.

  • Clinically proven to repair damaged hair*
  • 24-HR frizz control*
  • 104% increase in shine*
  • 78% reduction in split ends*
  • 450°F (232°C) heat protection*

*Disclaimers

This silicone-free oil fights frizz differently by addressing the damage that causes frizz long-term and immediately smoothing frizz + flyaways.

  • Reverses frizz-causing damage: Works at the molecular level to repair damaged hair, which is more susceptible to frizz
  • Reduces frizz + flyaways: Natural oils work on the surface of the hair to smooth the cuticle + soften without weighing hair down
  • Enhances shine + color vibrancy: Nourished, moisturized hair reflects higher shine and boosts color dimension
  • Delivers heat protection: to prevent further frizz-causing damage up to 450°F (232°C)

Apply to damp, towel-dried hair before styling, or on dry hair as a finisher. Highly concentrated formula. Start with 1-3 drops and build as needed.

Use on damp hair for: strengthening benefits and to reduce frizz during air-dry or styling

Use on dry hair to: smooth frizz and flyaways, as a finisher to add shine

  • Apply to damp hair from mid-lengths to ends. For strengthening benefits from the K18PEPTIDE™ wait 4 minutes before styling.
  • Apply to dry hair as a finisher.

Pro Tip - If using the K18 molecular repair mask, apply the mask first on clean, damp hair, then wait 4 minutes. Apply the molecular repair hair oil, and wait 4 minutes for maximum strengthening results.

got questions?

Get started here.

We recommend using the oil with the mask for maximum molecular repair with additional styling benefits. Think of the mask as a damage repair treatment after washing your hair. The oil is for smoothing, styling and strengthening after the mask, and can be used on damp and dry hair.

Yes, this oil provides heat protection up to 450°F/232°C.

No, it will not leave buildup or weigh down your hair. This weightless oil is powered by intentional ingredients to reduce frizz-causing damage on the molecular level inside the hair fiber, while natural oils work on the surface of hair without weighing it down.

Plus, you don’t need much of this highly concentrated formula to see results, just use 1-3 drops and build as needed. If you’re concerned about buildup, use our detox shampoo to remove 99% of product buildup after just 1 wash*.
*Disclaimers

No, the mask will not block the molecular repair hair oil from penetrating. The mask is a highly concentrated treatment without any fillers so it won’t block the oil from penetrating. Like layering different skincare products, the oil can be layered on top of the mask without impacting its performance.

Instead of mixing the oil and mask together, get the most effective repair and styling benefits by using the mask first, waiting 4 minutes, and then applying the oil.
