How it works

Deeply cleanses hair and scalp: A non-stripping lather works to unclog hair follicles while banishing dirt, oils, silicones, and things left behind from heavy product buildup including 99% of product buildup, 95% of sebum + a 76% copper reduction after just 1 wash.

Clears the path: Preps hair for maximum K18 Molecular Repair Leave-in Treatment results. Everything performs better on clean, clarified hair including color + chemical services, treatments, and styling products.

Will the detox shampoo dry my client’s hair out?

Intentional + purposeful formulation removes buildup without stripping or leaving buildup behind (no fillers). In a consumer study, 90%* said hair feels clean without feeling dry. *results observed on 38 people after 10 days.

Will the detox shampoo strip my client’s color?

This purposeful formulation is engineered to clean effectively without messing with your client’s color.

When do I use the detox shampoo?

Engineered for less frequent heavy duty washing. Perfect for prep ahead of texture services or a clean slate before K18 treatments or haircuts/styling.

Can you use the detox shampoo as a neutralizer after a relaxer?

Yes, you can use the detox shampoo to neutralize a relaxer.

Does it work with K18 PRO service?

Yes! These were created to fuel your client’s cleanest canvas for a healthy hair base, making every K18 application a hair-health changing experience.

Why is clean hair important?

Hair happiness starts with the cleanest hair possible. With a clean base, hair color applies more vibrantly, K18 treatments perform more effectively, and styling products work better.

Why are the PEPTIDE PREP™ shampoos different?

Optimized with ideal pH for the hair + scalp environment, only 18 ingredients, no fillers, and the K18PEPTIDE™ to nourish hair while removing buildup, these shampoos are engineered to deliver a superior clean without stripping color or messing with hair + scalp balance. Whether you’re looking for an effective + gentle regular cleanse or a heavy-duty detox—these are the only 2 shampoos you need at the backbar.

What is the PEPTIDE PREP™ detox shampoo?

A color-safe clarifying shampoo with skincare-inspired ingredients + microdosed with the patented K18PEPTIDE™ to nourish hair while removing buildup + metals for a clean, healthy hair canvas.

What does it do?

A non-stripping lather unclogs hair follicles while banishing dirt, oils, metals, and things left behind from heavy product buildup including 99% of product buildup, 95% of sebum + a 76% copper reduction after just 1 wash*. *results observed on bleached hair tress after 1 wash with detox shampoo

What makes the detox shampoo special?

Purposeful formulation powered by active skincare-inspired ingredients (no fillers) clean effectively without stripping or messing with your color.

How does the detox shampoo work?

Activated Charcoal absorbs toxins, excess oils, and dirt in the hair and scalp. Salicylic Acid clears sebum buildup in follicles without stripping hair of essential moisture and lipids.

What does the peptide in the shampoos do?

K18PEPTIDE™ works as a protective shield to reduce protein loss that can occur during washing to keep hair feeling soft, strong, healthy and clean.

If the shampoos are microdosed with the K18PEPTIDE™, why should I use the K18 leave-in mask?

The microdosed K18PEPTIDE™ acts as a protective shield against protein loss during washing. So while it does leave hair feeling strong, the K18 mask is the full dose of peptide-powered hair renewal from bleach + color, chemical service, and heat damage in the salon. For best results, use the PEPTIDE PREP™ detox shampoo to prep hair for maximum K18 molecular repair.

What do the shampoos smell like?

Both shampoos have a clean citrus scent.

pH-optimized ingredients

Engineered with optimized pH ranges to maintain hair + scalp equilibrium, protecting color + moisture levels no matter the intensity of your wash.
