leave-in molecular repair hair mask
4-minute leave-in treatment to reverse hair damage
A leave-in treatment mask for all hair types that clinically reverses damage in 4 minutes. The patented peptide technology works to repair damage from bleach, color, chemical services & heat – restoring strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce to hair.
More to know
creates hair like new
Traveling deeper into the inner layers of hair than traditional repair products, our revolutionary patented K18Peptide™ is just the right size and makeup to fit in and reconnect broken keratin chains, renewing hair with strength, softness, smoothness, and bounce. You can feel and see the difference with the first use.
See dosage chart for exact usage. For best results, use for the first 4-6 consecutive washes, then every 3-4 washes as needed to maintain hair strength.
How to use
IN the shower
- Shampoo, do not condition.
OUT of the shower
- Towel dry thoroughly.
- Begin with 1 pump of the K18 Mask and add more as needed depending on the length, thickness, and condition.
- Work evenly into hair from ends to roots, one pump at a time.
- Let sit for 4 minutes to activate.
- Do NOT rinse out.
- Style as usual.
Do's and Don'ts
- DO use a clarifying shampoo if you’re a heavy product or dry shampoo user to remove buildup and help our peptide penetrate and get where it needs to go.
- DO wait the full 4 minutes before styling or applying other product
- DO use every 4-6 shampoos consecutively to see and feel ongoing results
- DON’T condition your hair before application (trust us, most won’t need it after K18, if you still need, add a leave-in after the 4-minute window is up post-application)
- DON’T overuse, a little goes a long way.
- DON’T rinse out. This is a leave-in, so you know, leave it in!

What you can expect by damage type
How does K18 work?
When hair gets damaged, the polypeptide chains (keratin chains) that make up the inner structure of hair strands become weakened and break. For context, there are billions and billions of polypeptide chains (keratin chains) in a single strand of hair. When these are damaged, hair’s core structure responsible for elasticity and strength becomes compromised and as a result it loses its resiliency and shine—or the look and feel of healthy hair.
After spending a decade in the lab scanning and testing all amino acid sequences across the entire keratin genome that makes up human hair searching for a breakthrough, we discovered one unique sequence (a bioactive peptide) that brings damaged hair back to its original, youthful state. This is our K18Peptide™.
Traveling deeper into the inner layers of hair than traditional repair products, our revolutionary peptide is just the right size and makeup to fit in and reconnect those broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains). And because our peptide is a bit of an overachiever, as a result of this reconnection, any disturbed disulfide bonds are also re-conformed.
Our peptide employs biomimetics to get the job done. To put it simply: Biomimetics is the practice of learning from and mimicking nature. Mimicking the natural structure of keratin building blocks (amino acid sequences), our K18 bioactive peptide is recognized as natural by the hair. It’s not washed away by water or shampoo like traditional bonding agents either, making K18 a genuine, lasting solution for damaged strands.
What is the K18Peptide™?
K-18’s patented 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.
An Analogy: When building proteins, the order of the amino acids determines the kind of protein and its properties, much like the way letters are arranged to make meaningful words and sentences. In the same way the order and where each word sits in a sentence leads to its overall meaning, K18 is the magic word that fits right in, integrating itself with the keratin chains as the hair recognizes it as a natural building block.
Why should I skip conditioner?
K18 is most effective on clean, towel-dried hair. Conditioners use silicones and conditioning agents that form heavy coatings on hair, preventing our peptide from reaching the broken polypeptide chains deep inside hair’s inner layer.
I noticed there’s alcohol in the formula, isn’t that bad for you?
K-18 would like to keep formulas minimal, only using the exact amount of ingredients needed to get the peptide where it needs to go. Their unique blend of 3 alcohols function to open up the hair cuticle so the K18Peptide ™ can penetrate the inner most layer of hair, reaching the broken polypeptide chains (keratinchains). Here the alcohol serves as an agent to optimize the hair environment for K18 to work on a deeper level.
When should I expect to see results?
You will start to see stronger, softer, healthier hair after just one use.
