Professional Molecular Repair Mist

part of the K18 PRO Service
Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 117 reviews
150 mL

This part of the K18 PRO service is a peptide-powered lightweight mist engineered to strengthen hair’s defense against damaging chemical services. Typically used toward the beginning of the service, the pH level of 7.5-8.0 shifts the cuticle layer open to penetrate hair’s cortex and deliver the K18PEPTIDE™ to damage sites on the molecular level—without weighing hair down.

how K18 works

Traveling into the innermost layers of hair, our K18Peptide™ renews strength along the width AND length of hair for lasting strength where it matters.

have questions?

we have answers.

who is k18 mist for?

K18 is safe to use on all hair types and textures, all generations, and was made to be used on all types of damage.

why is k18 mist applied before bleaching / coloring?

K18 mist is applied before bleach or color services because it works on renewing client’s existing damage to strengthen the hair canvas pre-treatment. Restoring strength and elasticity in just 4 minutes means the stylist’s work can go further without having to edit process around damage. The K18 mist’s liquid formulation optimizes the efficacy of the K18Peptide™ by opening up the hair’s cuticle layers and getting the renewing peptide deep into hair’s inner cortex to repair broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains).

how is the k18 mist applied before a chemical service?

Follow these steps for best use:
- Prep hair by lightly misting with water.
- Apply K18 Mist section by section, the amount needed depends on client’s hair type and condition. Reference chart for approximate dosage.
- Wait 4 minutes. DO NOT rinse out. This is a good time to mix or prepare for your chemical service. You can dry hair after the 4 minutes are up, if needed.

why do i need to mist the hair with water before applying the k18 mist?

Misting the hair with water allows the cuticle layers to prepare for optimal penetration of the mist into the inner cortex. In the same way a damp sponge absorbs more water, damp hair absorbs K18.

How much K18 MIST do I use?

The amount of K18 MIST will depend on hair length, thickness, and condition. Refer to our usage chart for guidance.

can i use k18 mist + mask together?

These formulas are intended to be used at separate times during the service but work together to renew damaged hair from the inside out.

During a chemical service, K18 Mist is applied prior to chemical application. K18 Mask is applied post-service to renew damaged caused during the chemical service.

During a few services, you will only use theK18 Mist in the salon. During a perm for example, K18 Mist is applied before the perm solution, K18 mist is then reapplied again after the neutralizer instead of the mask to avoid additional weight on newly formed curls.

client recommendation

At-Home Treatment

Leave in Molecular Hair Repair Mask

2 pumps

Use for the first 4-6 washes, then every 3-4 washes for ongoing damage repair.

optimize K18

skip the conditioner

Conditioners coat hair making it harder for our K18Peptide™ to effectively penetrate strands and get into the inner layers of hair. We like to skip it so the peptide can get right to damage sites without interruption. If strands need a little more love, you can add a leave-in conditioner once the initial 4-minute wait period is over.

clarify first

Excessive product or mineral buildup on hair can prevent our K18Peptide™ from effectively penetrating strands. If hair is heavy with buildup, start with a clarifying treatment before using K18 to remove residue that may block our peptide from getting where it needs to go.

continue use

Damage is ongoing, so clients' use of K18 should be too. This progressive treatment makes hair healthier with each use. Continue their hair renewal at home by using K18 for the first 4-6 washes, then every 3-4 washes to maintain the integrity of damaged hair.

less is more

Our Pro Mask is highly concentrated, meaning a little goes a long way. Don’t oversaturate hair and refer to our dosage chart to find the optimal amount for each client’s hair type and service.

When using the Pro Mist, the more the merrier to reset damage before a chemical service. Use pre-service for a healthy canvas by applying a generous amount of the Pro Mist to damp hair, section by section.
