Love it!

I really like this serum. I put it in my hair after it’s styled and it leaves it soft and shiny and it tames the flyaways. I love the smell too.

My favorite heat defense

This is great if you use high temp on your blow dryer, straighten or curling iron. Leaves a great texture at the end of the day and the heat defense is phenomenal. 10/10 recommend. I love amika products so much!

Great product!

Great serum! I use it on wet hair before drying/styling and as a final step to add shine and keep my hair sleek. Never too heavy or sticky. Like all serums- try to avoid the scalp/too close to roots. and of course- the amika signature scent is AMAZING! I keep sniffing my own hair.
