How it works

Cleanses while smoothing the hair surface: Effective yet safe cleansers break down and remove dirt + oil for optimal nourishment and manageability.

Designed for daily use: pH-balanced formula doesn’t disrupt the hair fiber or scalp environment and is safe to use daily if needed.

Creates the ideal foundation for healthy hair: This formula was engineered to create an optimal clean canvas without any fillers to coat or disrupt the hair and scalp equilibrium.

Good & bad

I absolutely love the K18 leave in hair repair, however, the shampoo dries my hair out really bad. I had been looking forward to the shampoo, but very disappointed.

Nothing compares to K18 system !!!

I have tried SO many products claiming to improve hair health. Many high end very expensive products but nothing I have tried can compare to the results I have seen from K18. I am amazed and excited about my results‼️ My hair is soft and has movement unlike ever before. I colored my hair ( box color) and even with that … my hair is shinny, smooth and looks healthy. 😍😍😍

Maintenance shampoo

It leaves the hair squeaky clean with a very small dab.
