KMS - In 1976, a 40-year journey began with a now long-standing philosophy that fused together two unlikely worlds: Nature and Technology. Revolutionizing the first hair care products with innovative formulations derived from nature, creating a Shampoo with Natural Essential Fatty Acids that included oil-based moisture to target chemically dry, thick and coarse hair types. In 1984, KMS launched the first thermal protection product to market called Control, now known as the popular heat styling product ThermaShape to fend off the damage of heat styling. From 1985 through 2017, KMS has brought powerful innovation to the beauty world with products that deliver unparalleled performance and unwavering loyalty from clients and stylists alike. Products such as Leave-In Conditioners and Reconstructors, Sea Salt Sprays to care for texture then Hybrid and Heat-activated stylers that changed the way people felt about their hair and daily beauty routines. KMS continues to leave their mark on the world, sending a statement to the masses of the world that your personal style is important and limitless, clarifying that KMS is dedicated to the evolution and maintenance of that style indefinitely.

Check out these incredible ingredients featured in KMS products:

Mentha Aquatica Extract - Water Mint

Water Mint is a member of the Lamiaceae Mint Plant family, most commonly found on the banks of rivers, streams, and marshes. Growing in very damp or submerged fresh water, usually in abundance particularly in a shady woodland area of the UK. Though it contains less menthol than Peppermint it carries all the same benefits for easing nausea, respiratory problems, inflammation, and soothing skin irritation. Due to Water Mint's high antioxidant, mineral, and vitamin infusion, this ingredient promotes a healthy scalp by treating dryness and dandruff.

Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract - Vanilla

Vanilla extract is most commonly known for its aromatic fragrance and delightful taste in our favorite treats, though this ingredient's power goes far beyond what we could imagine. Vanilla extract contains high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that have the ability to reduce free radical damage to the hair and skin. When combined with other nourishing ingredients, it makes hair silky soft, smooth and shiny while aiding in overall healthy hair growth. Vanilla is an excellent source of B-Vitamins like Niacin, Thiamin, and Vitamin B6 plus Pantothenic Acid that all have a significant role in maintaining toned and clear skin and going as far as protecting hair and skin from damage caused by environmental pollutants and toxins.
