got questions?

Get started here

Will the detox shampoo dry my hair out?

No, the detox shampoo will not dry your hair out. This non-stripping formula has a pH of 3.8-4.2 that won’t leave hair over-stripped. In a consumer study, 90%* said hair feels clean without feeling dry.

*k18hair.com/disclaimers

Will the mask block the molecular repair hair oil from penetrating?

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’s path. Like layering different skincare products, the oil can be layered on top of the mask without impacting its performance—in fact, they work even better when used together.

Is the formula of the DAMAGE SHIELD pH protective shampoo different from the PEPTIDE PREP® pH maintenance shampoo?

No, the formula of the DAMAGE SHIELD pH protective shampoo is not different from the PEPTIDE PREP® pH maintenance shampoo. Just the name has changed, the formulation you know and love is the same.

Can the K18 conditioner repair damage like the mask does?

No, the conditioner does not repair damage like the mask does. This nourishing, protective conditioner shields against 3 types of damage (daily mechanical, UV, and environmental) for up to 3 days*— to help maintain hair health and improve smoothness and shine. Both formulas include the K18PEPTIDE™ with different benefits.

The mask has a higher concentration of the peptide to reverse damage. In the conditioner, the K18PEPTIDE™ replenishes protein lost during washing, while the cuticle is still swollen, to fortify hair health and strength. To get damage repair benefits from the K18PEPTIDE™, use the K18 mask first, wait 4 minutes, then apply the K18 conditioner.

*k18hair.com/disclaimers

Can I mix the K18 conditioner with the oil?

For best results, we do not recommend mixing the K18 conditioner with the oil. Use the K18 molecular repair hair oil after the K18 conditioner.

Does the molecular repair hair oil still repair if used after K18 conditioner?

For maximum damage repair benefits from the molecular repair hair oil, we recommend using it without conditioner.

Works great

I had some old minis that I never used and I decided to try them because my hair has been so frizzy and dry lately.

Well it made a huge difference! My hair feels and looks so much healthier now!

I will definitely be recommending this to my clients.

It’s okay

I bought the larger version of these items and they work okay. They left my hair feeling really greasy and I wasn’t even using very much product. It also didn’t help at all with the yellowing of my blonde hair. I figured that since these products were geared towards colored hair that it would somewhat help with the yellowing, but it doesn’t. My hair was still substantially frizzy after using these products. Overall, I probably wouldn’t buy again. Super disappointed for the price point.
