You may have noticed me mention Amika along with a few other brands in my favorite hair care products. Most recently I featured them in my post on how to get the perfect spring time hair. Amika & a few of the other brands I listed previously have now become my go-to haircare products for keeping my hair hydrated & healthy.
Amika Oil Treatment – HSN or Birchbox
I’m a huge fan of leave in conditioners/creams. I mentioned before in a previous hair post I always put a leave in conditioner in after I shower to aid with tangles & protecting the hair. I usually only do this when I know I’m just air drying my hair (which is a good amount of the time). I would usually use a leave in cream/conditioner first, comb through my hair and then apply a small amount of oil treatment (see below). This Sea Buckthorn Berry (Obliphica) Leave in Cream with omega 7 + vitamin c hydrates, smooths and protects all hair types. Free of parabens and artificial colors.
The Obliphica berry, for centuries renowned for its healing powers, has an arsenal of antioxidants, vitamins, healthy fatty acids, Omega 3, 6 & 9, and the rare Omega 7 (usually only found in fish oil). These potent vitamins come together to form a line that replenishes, moisturizes, and brings out hairs natural balance.(Source: Amika)
Directions: Apply on the palm of the hand and massage or scrunch through wet hair. I apply and comb through.
I’ve definitely said it before- I love oil treatments. I don’t go one day without putting an oil treatment on my hair after showering & after using a leave-in cream. I always put oil treatments on before blow drying or heat styling as well (for extra shine & nourishment). Whenever I feel a little frizz coming on, I dab a little and it smooths it all out. This product has the same properties as the leave in cream –Sea Buckthorn Berry (Obliphica) Oil Treatment with omega 7 + vitamin c which hydrates, smooths and protects all hair types. Free of parabens and artificial colors.
Directions: Apply a few drops to the palm and rub hands together then evenly distribute through damp or dry hair. It is also perfect for nourishing hair before and after blow drying or heat styling. I recommend just being careful how much you put in. I use very little at one time rub it together on my two palms and spread evenly starting at the ends & working my way up. I never put the oil on my root because I don’t want it to get greasy.
The Obliphica Heat Defense Serum shields
hair from heat styling and blow drying, preventing overheating and
damage to the delicate hair fiber. While styling serum forms a protective layer around the cuticle
for a frizz-free and smooth finish.
The intensive strengthening ingredients
repair the cuticle and boost elasticity for ultimate anti-breakage
benefits. The result is soft and smooth hair that is protected from

together then evenly distribute through damp or dry hair prior to blow
drying or styling. The serum is also a perfect finishing touch for
smoothing fly-aways and adding that extra bit of glamour. Usually if I know I am going out for the day/night & know I’ll be heat styling, I shower, apply the heat serum, blow dry hair a bit and then stop halfway through to apply my oil and then continue blow drying & styling as normal.
There you have it, hopefully this helped a bit on how to care a bit more for your hair & a few of my go to products when heat styling & just plain old taking care of it.
