Not all hair and extensions are created and treated equally. With so many ways of damaging the integrity of the hair’s core structure, hairstylists are constantly faced with the challenge of how to achieve their client’s desired end results while maintaining the hair’s health (e.g., hair extensions are a great chemical-free and safe alternative to achieving clients’ hair goals instantly). But there’s also another way to maintain your client’s mane before, during, and after any chemical and/or extension service, K18™ Molecular Repair Service. This innovative technology repairs, restores, and renews clients’ natural hair and extensions.
WHAT IS K18?
Patented bioactive peptide treatment prepares, protects, and repairs hair before and after in-salon services. Reverses damage and prevents breakage while strengthening hair and improving elasticity. K18 peptide is a unique sequence of amino acids that travels deep into hair’s core structure to fit in and reconnect broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains) responsible for hair strength and elasticity. Basically restoring the hair to its “virgin” state.
K18 + HAIRTALK
- Healthier, stronger natural hair is the foundation for a safe, long-lasting extension application. The natural hair is stronger, less compromised, and able to withstand the added density.
- Human hair extensions naturally lose shine and elasticity due to chemical and heat styling services. K18 revitalizes extensions on a molecular level leaving the hair shinier, softer, and stronger.
