KAPs: THE GUARDIANS OF THA HAIR’S INTERNAL COHESION
Constantly putting into question the very structure of hair is an obesession for Kérastase. L’Oréal Advanced Reasearch has shown the fundamental role played by the KAPs (Keratin Associated Proteins), major partners in ensuring the structure of hair. These tiny proteins link keratins to each other and attach them together. An uncommonly strong cohesive power without which the fiber’s structure would collapse.
KAPs ACCOUNT FOR 50%-60% OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE HAIR
When hair becomes damaged, these proteins disappear, which consequently destructures the internal architecture of the fiber and leads to its gradual collpase.
NATURE SUBLIMATED BY SCIENCE: FIBRA-KAPTM ASSOCIATED WITH RESURRECTION SAP
Kérastase created FIBRA-KAPTM, a powerful complex designed to compensate for the loss of KAPs in hair fiber due to damages. It associates one gluco-peptide, the SP94, with 6 Amino acids and a wheat protein derivative.

THE RESURRECTION SAP, A MIRACLE OF NATURE
The Myrothamnus Flabellifolia is an incredible plant able to come back to like even after ten years of near death. When once again in contact with water, it regains its original casing and begins a new cycle of life. L’Oreal Advanced Research has aspired to take full advantage of this plant’s vital essence. The precious sap taken from the leaves was especially selected by Kérastase to enrich its Résistance-Thérapiste formulas.
