have questions?

Get started here

Can I use the conditioner instead of the mask? 

The mask and conditioner serve two different purposes. The K18 mask reverses damage in 4 minutes, while the K18 conditioner protects hair from daily damage for up to 3 days*. We recommend using the K18 mask first, waiting 4 minutes, then using conditioner for additional softening and detangling benefits in the salon, or at home between K18 mask days. *Disclaimers

Will the K18 conditioner cause buildup on hair?

No, the K18 conditioner will not cause buildup on hair. The highly concentrated, lightweight gel formula means a little goes a long way. Use less than you typically would with a traditional conditioner, and build as needed.

Will the K18 conditioner weigh hair down?

No, the K18 conditioner will not weigh hair down. This highly concentrated, lightweight gel formula softens, smooths, and detangles without film-forming silicones or waxes that can build up over time.

Does the K18 conditioner need to be reapplied for continued UV protection? 

No, you do not need to reapply the K18 conditioner for continued UV protection. This product is clinically proven to protect hair against damage from UV rays for up to 3 days*. *Disclaimers

Does the K18 conditioner have SPF?

No, the K18 conditioner does not have SPF. The biotech-produced polysaccharide and fortifying ceramide blend help minimize the drying and damaging effects of UV rays on the hair's cuticle. This prevents hair from becoming rough, brittle, weak, and prone to breakage from UV damage for up to 3 days*. *Disclaimers

3-day damage protection, powered by biotech

why hair needs a shield

Damage happens every day from UV rays, mechanical styling, and environmental aggressors, weakening, dulling, and causing frizz on all hair types.

how the shield works

Protect hair BEFORE daily damage occurs. Inspired by nature’s resilience to harsh environments, our biotech-produced polysaccharide delivers 3-day conditioning protection without reapplying.

expert-approved protection

Trichologist Angela Onuoha breaks down how common hair aggressors damage hair, and how DAMAGE SHIELD protects hair between K18 mask days.

Terrible for detangling

3c hair here, and as such, it’s really important for me that a conditioner softens the hair enough for the detangling process. This conditioner makes my hair hard, so trying to run a comb through it after application is a nightmare. It gets so stiff it makes it impossible. Sad because I really wanted to love it, especially at this price point.

Awesome

I got a sample of this from my stylist and loved it with the shampoo! My hair felt smoother & softer after one use. I’m now now using the leave in mask with the shampoo and will rotate with this, highly recommend
