K18 - Why skip the conditioner?

K18 is most effective on clean, towel dried hair. Conditioner formulas use silicones and conditioning agents that form heavy coatings on hair that prevent K18 Peptide from penetrating to the broken disulfide bonds within the cortex. You may use conditioner after K18 has processed for 4 minutes if needed, not before.
Always use on clean hair.

K18 - Why do you use the mask on towel dried hair?

K18Peptide™ is not able to regenerate bonds in the presence of too much water inside the cortex. However, the hair needs to be slightly damp to help with penetration of the product into the hair.

Why do you need to leave the K18 Mask in?

K18 is more effective when left in. The formula is lightweight and works on the inside of the hair, so the hair is left feeling clean and light, even without rinsing it out.

K18 - Styling product information

You can layer styling products on top of K18 Mask after the 4 minute processing time.

What happens if I apply styling products before the 4 minutes after applying K18?

Applying styling products before the 4 minute processing time will diminish the efficacy of K18.

K18 - Frequency of use

K18 is designed to be used consecutively for 6 washes and then every 3-4 washes to maintain your healthiest hair possible.
