The brand Kappers was launched in the Netherlands in 1995. The idea behind this hair care line was to provide professional salons with high-quality products at an attractive price. The products furthermore had to tie in with the specifc needs and methods of individual professional hair salons. The brand has by now widely proven that it can provide added value. We have therefore seen a spectacular increase in the number of enthusiastic users over the past twelve years.
Kappers is now showing once more that it can further improve hair care, this time with the launch of KIS: the Keratin Infusion System. KIS combines the best of American and European hair care into one complete and unique hair care line. This system is based on a revolutionary formula that, in line with the American hair care tradition, focuses on hair repair from the inside. Where the US excels in actual hair repair, Europe is leading the way when it comes to innovation in the area of hair colouring and perms. Kappers now blends the best of both worlds into one revolutionary hair care line, which evolves around one common denominator for all products: the Keratin Infusion System. The line consists of repairing shampoos and treatments from the US, styling products from the US, the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium, perms and oxy creams from Germany and hair colour from the number one colour country: Italy.
KIS is the result of a long quest for the ultimate formula. And it is quite some result: a product line that repairs hair from the inside, and makes it strong and healthy again. And on top of that, a product line that dovetails perfectly with both your professional needs as a hairdresser, and the individual needs of your customer. Kappers commissioned, especially for KIS, one of the leading chemical scientists in the US to develop a completely new hair care line. His brief was based on the key concepts ‘simplicity’, ‘easy to use’ and ‘maximum effectiveness’. The chemical scientist we selected has a proven track record in development projects for products for reputable cosmetics brands, as well as for his own globally well-know brand. His experience and know-how have led to this new, spectacular hair care line: KIS by Kappers.
A lot of thought has gone into KIS. These products not only offer the exceptional Keratin Infusion System, but also a number of other important assets. One of the preconditions in the development of KIS was, for example, that the development process should not harm animals and damage their living environment. KIS products were therefore not tested on animals. And the keratin used in the products is extracted from wool sheared from New Zealand sheep. No animal by-products are used in KIS, and the products are not damaging to the environment. The packaging can be recycled.
KIS gives you the peace of mind of a high-quality product that meets all your professional requirements. Choosing KIS is opting for ease of use and quality. KIS frees you from having to make complex and time-consuming considerations for different products and different suppliers. By choosing KIS you will save time and effort, and will be choosing the best. And in order to be able to take full advantage of all the possibilities and benefts of this product line, you can also count on invaluable technical support from KIS. KIS product training courses enable you to make the most of the products and their possibilities, and will also boost your creativity and productivity.
This frst step of the Keratin Infusion Treatment rids the hair of all remaining styling products, excess sebum (grease), chemical build-ups and products that do not belong in the hair. KeraClean Volume Shampoo neutralizes minerals and chlorines, and cleans the hair intensively, without damaging the cuticle or other parts of the hair, resulting in lasting volume. Does not affect the colour, thanks to the ideal pH value of 5.0 - 5.5. Very suitable as body wash for greasy skin. Motto for step 1 is: frst remove all substances from the hair that should not be there, then rebuild the hair from scratch.
Massage a small quantity into wet hair and let it foam. Repeat this treatment when you do not get enough foam. Let it set for 3 minutes. The crackling sound indicates that the shampoo is working: all excess substances are removed. Subsequently rinse the hair and dry it with a towel. Proceed with step 2.
KeraBoost Infusion is a very concentrated mixture of keratin amino acids with a molecular weight of 150, combined with cationic enzymes. These rebuild the hair from the inside, and restore its natural strength. This will ensure that possible hair colour and other chemical treatments retain their colour longer.
Spray KeraBoost Infusion onto towel dried hair (don’t be shy): the hair is repaired directly in the places you spray it onto. Start with the most porous areas and then treat the rest. Do not rinse! Proceed to step 3 after this.
A fast-penetrating, protein-introducing, constructive treatment for permed, coloured or damaged hair. KeraMax Treatment contains the highest concentration of keratin and a select combination of herb extracts. These have a repairing effect on the hair.
Put a quantity the size of a Euro coin in the palm of your hand, and rub it into the hair, working it in from the end of the hair down to the root. Let it set for 5 minutes, rinse the hair and dry it with a towel.
This acid-based treatment is used to close the cuticle and to accompany prior treatments. It restores the pH value, neutralizes alkaline values and perm odors. It prevents the hair from breaking, and makes sure that colour and perm are retained longer. This treatment restores the hair’s natural condition: strong, healthy and glossy.
After rinsing step 2 and step 3 (KeraBoost Infusion & KeraMax Treatment): dry the hair with a towel and apply an abundant amount of product onto the hair. Let it set for 3-5 minutes and rinse.
A moisture-retaining, very concentrated leave-in conditioner for coloured, permed or dry hair. Has an anti-static and anti-tangle effect, closes the cuticle, protects the hair against the heat of the blow dryer, the sun and other external inﬂuences. Prevents frizzing.
Spray a quantity the size of a pearl onto the palm of your hand, and rub it into the hair with wet hands, working it in from the end of the hair down to the root. Do not rinse! Style the hair the way you like it.
