Editor’s Note: My hair used to be healthy, but from dyeing it, using heat without protection, and a slew of damaging products, I fried it. While looking for remedies, I found K18 and decided to give it a shot.
Practicing self-care is so essential for your emotional health. From eating healthy, brushing your teeth, and drinking enough water – it feels good to spend time taking care of yourself.
My Hair Pre-K18:
My natural hair is the most boring shade of brown. Once I dyed it blonde for the first time in high school, I never wanted to go back. So I’ve been every color—sometimes from a bo and a professional.
The thing is, I remember my hair used to have a natural wave. And in old pictures, it caught the shine of the light. But, after the damage I inflicted, it was sooo dry and frizzy. Plus, the breakage was unbelievable.
I had my hair dyed back to a brown and quit heat tools for a while, but it wasn’t enough!
My hair was so sad and boring that I found myself researching how long it would take to go from a buzzcut to a bob.
That was my last resort, but before such a big chop, I wanted to try to salvage it with an effective reparative treatment. Researching beauty blogs across different platforms, I was super excited about the reviews for one mask: K18’s Leave-In Molecular Repair Hair Mask.
It seemed incredibly easy to use. After shampooing, you hop out of the shower, towel dries your hair until it’s damp, then start with one pump of the mask and add more as needed. Then you wait 4 minutes and proceed as usual—that’s it, no rinsing it out! You use it instead of conditioner for your first six washes and then use it every few washes.
This peptide-powered formula’s key is restoration. K18’s goal is to give you healthy, strong, smooth hair that can withstand all the hair changes (and damage) you throw at it. I was skeptical, but I wanted to see what might happen, so I bought it.
My Hair After K18:
It arrived in the cutest little box, and from the instructions, I’d need about two pumps per wash based on my hair.
The product has a nice consistency, no pungent smell, and easily penetrated my towel-dried hair. The formula employs biotechnology to return damaged hair strands to a healthy state by reconnecting broken keratin chains in the inner part of the hair.
Trying to stay away from heat, I let my hair air dry. About an hour in, I noticed my hair looked wavier than I’d seen it in quite a while. Of course, it could’ve been a coincidence, so I didn’t get my hopes up until it was scorched.
Oh. My. God. My hair looked three years younger. It had the wave and bounce I’d been missing and was shiny.
And the frizz was gone! I was shocked.
It’s been a few weeks now, and there’s a massive difference in my hair. It regularly has the bouncy waves I’ve been craving. And I’ve been feeling confident enough to browse Pinterest for hair color inspiration again.
Now, I can dye my hair and add heat to my heart’s content without worrying about damage! I feel like I got a new lease on my hair, and I’m looking forward to all the fun I’ll have with K18’s secret powers.
If you regularly experiment with your hair, or even if you don’t, K18 will give you the best, healthiest hair of your life!
