A new hair treatment has come to the salon this week! It is a new product designed to restore and bring back the health to your damaged and brittle hair, but how does it work you may ask.
K18 utilizes a breakthrough patented oligopeptide (K18Peptide™) which shuttles amino acids (the building blocks of hair) into the inner structure of the hair. Once inside the hair cortex, the unique amino-acid chain goes directly to the broken disulfide bonds to replace the lost amino acids, regenerating the bond and restoring ultimate strength, resilience and softness.
You can ask your stylist to use it on you with your next hair service, or buy the mask and use it at home!
Welcome to Quannessence Skincare. This new Canadian line of therapeutic and holistic professional products is arguably the most advanced cosmeceutical product line on the market!
The success of the line is spreading across the country and can be attributed to our products being botanically based yet highly functional in addressing most skin conditions. Our products incorporate high concentrations of active ingredients that compete with, or exceed, the efficiency of all other advanced skincare lines on the market without the use of parabens or other potentially harmful ingredients.
Quannessence is formulated to facilitate the corrective management of problematic skin conditions. The line is based on medical principles and a holistic approach in keeping with proven aesthetic techniques, rather than hype.

Paula Kent co-founded Redken Laboratories in 1960. As a young actress in the late 1950s, when hair was highly bleached and teased, Paula was challenged with baby fine hair and sensitive skin. On set in Hollywood, she constantly experienced allergic reactions to the products used by hairdressers and makeup artists. She visited dermatologists and hairdressers to find a solution, but no one could explain to her the science behind the products.
In a moment of inspiration, Paula realized that she could help millions of other people who needed gentle, high-performance products – and that professional hairdressers needed to know the chemistry of hair and skin, product ingredients and their relationship to beautiful, healthy hair.
Using $3,000 she earned from appearing in a beer commercial, Paula Kent and her hairdresser, Jheri Redding (forming the name “REDKEN”) started Redken with three products and an intensive education program for hairdressers. The formulas were developed based on three principles:
Protein technology (since hair is composed primarily of protein) An acidic pH of 4.5-5.5, complementing the natural pH of the hair and skin Products recommended exclusively by licensed cosmetologists in professional salons With this, Paula Kent revolutionized the professional haircare industry for both stylists and clients. Her pioneering spirit is cherished and she leaves behind a legacy that sustains the brand today.
