Rated 5 out of 5 by from K18 is the best! This is one of my favorite products to use in the salon, along with all the other K18 products. I rarely do color without it anymore. This goes on the hair before any color/lightener is applied and it’s great! You really do see a difference in the hair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wish I could have tried the complete set I got this free from influencer for my honest review and I feel as though they should have sent me at least a small version of the other items suggested for use of this product. I think the price is way too high and they don’t offer any other sizes which I think limits people wanting to try it. It seems to work ok with hard water in my area as well as extremely dry course hair I haven’t noticed I huge difference but that could just be me. Maybe if they would have sent the complete kit it would have been different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is amazing at removing build-up I received this product for free from Influencer in exchange for my honest review. This product is amazing and lifting dirt and build up out of the hair. I used this on my client that just took down braids and I was amazed by how the build up was removed by this product. This will a product that I will continually reach for to remove stubborn dirt and product build up. This product smells amazing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A clean canvas delivering better results This product helps me start with a clean canvas for any salon service. Quick, simple & impactful. I’d say you’ll get a better outcome using the recommended line of K18 products.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but overpriced I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest review. I used it 3x on my own hair. Once pre color/toning. It has helped keep the toner in much longer than typically would last and without going brassy. That's a plus. But as for a stand alone metal detox it's not as powerful as others on the market I have tried. My hair is very oily, has issues with crazy amounts of static. After using as a stand alone treatment there wasn't much difference in volume, oil, or static in my hair. I could tell it helped as a clarifying treatment beyond the normal clarification shampoo. But not as good as other packet ones I've tried. What my main concern is the cost. I have thin shoulder length hair and did 3 treatments following the directions on application. I have just over half the bottle remaining. So if you have longer hair clients you might only get 4-5 uses out of the bottle. And cost break down per client application is 3-4x higher than other metal hard water detox treatments than I have personally used before. So, would I recommend it? Only to certain clients who have very compromised and dry hair. But if you need some heavy lifting power, no , I wouldn't. The price is what's hanging me up on saying yes you absolutely need to get this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really impressed! I was sent this product and was extremely excited to try on my clients. I had to get the second part to insure the best results and I was extremely impressed! Brightened up my blondes and got a lot of buildup out of the hair
