I ran through my hair arsenal and picked my three favorite amika hair products to share.
I should probably start off by saying that my daily hair routine is pretty simple. I generally add a blow-dry spray or styling cream to damp hair and blow-dry. That’s it. But some days — especially second day hair days — I like to add some waves with a curling wand, or use my thermal brush to create volume and curl. Other, more laid back days, I try my skill at airdried waves.
Now, on to the products.
Regardless of how I style my hair, I use amika Nourishing Hair Mask every 5 – 7 days. Especially when I am heavy into heat styling, I feel like this hair mask helps revive my tired tresses with some much needed moisture. My hair feels lush and silky after use.
For those days when I heat-style, I want a hairspray with good hold that isn’t too sticky or stiff. amika makes more than one hairspray, but my favorite is amika’s Touchable Hairspray. It gives me the hold I need while allowing my hair to move naturally. I’ve used it both pre- and post-curling wand, both with good results. The scent is pretty light, too, so I don’t walk around all day feeling like I reek of hairspray.
For those days that I want a less polished, more beachy wave, I reach for amika Haute Mess Texture Gel. I add a quarter-sized amount to the bottom half of damp hair and either scrunch or pull into a loose bun (or, sometimes, alternate between the two) and let air-dry. The result is typically soft textured waves. I’ve also added a little bit to my damp roots, in a pinch, to add some volume before blow drying.
amika loves hair, and I heart amika!
