Great Results on Coily Hair

I was only going to buy the K 18 leave in and something just told me to buy this shampoo as well. I honestly thought that because my hair is coily that I could not just wash my hair with a detox shampoo and a leave in and that be it, my hair was so soft and so manageable, and had so much shine just after one use, I highly recommend this product for my hair friends. I have also noticed less hair that comes out during my wash and style.

Lovely shampoo

I recently tried the K18 PEPTIDE PREP™ Detox Shampoo and it's been fantastic for my hair. This shampoo is specially formulated to gently but effectively remove product buildup, sebum, and metals from tap and hard water. It's color-safe and non-stripping, leaving my hair feeling detoxified and refreshed. I appreciate the inclusion of the K18PEPTIDE™, which helps keep my hair strong and healthy. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking for a deep clean without harsh effects on their hair
