Why My Hair Has Never Felt Healthier After Using K18's Repair Hair Mask.
It took me a long time to admit that I'd fried my hair.
I got balayage done at a salon, I dyed half my head pink in my bathroom on a random Tuesday…. from all my experiments, my hair finally became dull and dead.
I really didn't want to cut it off, but it was looking sad, so I started researching holy-grail fix-it products. There were some salon treatments, there was the entire Olaplex line, and plenty of products that promised results over the course of a few months, but one kind of seemed perfect: the K18 Leave-in Molecular Repair Hair Mask.
According to their website, you could see results in four minutes. What? It was a highly concentrated salon-quality hair treatment that worked on undoing damage and preventing damage. It almost seemed too good to be true, but I only hadn't heard of it because it's really new and their biomimetic technology has been in the works for 10 years.
They're really science-focused: they patented an oligopeptide, K18Peptide™, to deliver essential amino acids into the inner structure of your hair, completely rebuilding it and regenerating new bonds.
Reviews were incredible. I saw the $75 price tag, but it's for 50 doses and they claim this would replace all my other masks and treatments.
Honestly, I was into it. Summer's coming and if I could lighten up without losing all my hair, that would be amazing.
There were so many stories of people saying this was a life-changer, so I bought it!
It arrived with really nice packaging, and I took a shower so I could try it. You're supposed to shampoo as usual, but skip the conditioner. Then, when you get out of the shower, you towel dry your hair, and disperse 1-2 pumps of product into your hair. Mine is medium-long, but not super thick, so I only used 1. Then, you're good!
I went through the process, and I immediately liked the consistency of the product. Apparently, some people see a difference in minutes and I don't know if I did! You are supposed to use it consecutively for 6 wash days, and then switch to a maintenance phase of once every 3-4 washes.
But I'm super impatient, so I took pictures. Wash 3 was when I personally noticed a difference. My hair was shinier! I hadn't seen that type of shine in a while. The next time, it was definitely even shinier than before.
After my 6 washes in a row, it was noticeably healthier! And I loved that it's not like a silicone conditioner; this isn't a coating on top of your hair, this is your actual hair that's healthier and shinier.
This is the product. I can only speak for my hair type, but it's been shown to work on all hair types.
I love changing my hair constantly. Damage was the only thing stopping me from changing it more often, and now that I have K18 on my side, nothing's holding me back! I'm so happy I can have healthy, shiny hair with K18 no matter what.
