Let’s talk hair products. I struggle with very fine hair, that is half curly and half straight, making it almost impossible to style without the use of some type of heat styling. Meet Amika, through this amika product review. I first learned about Amika hair products a few years ago and tried their Un.Done texture spray (Amazon affiliate link) on a whim, purchasing off Amazon. I remember it being a game changer. Finally there was something that gave my fine hair a little more grip and allowed it to be styled easily!
Fast forward to my wedding. The stylist, Penny, that I went to used Amika products on my hair for my wedding. Side note – If you are needing a styIist in the Waco, TX area, Penny is incredible! Seriously, my hair never felt so soft and voluminous, which is why I’m writing this amika product review to share with you! The next month I ordered the Wizard Spray, which has the most amazing smell. I really can’t even describe it – it smells like rainbows and vanilla and good feelings. The bottle has Sea Buckthorn ingredient listed, which I think is what smells so good. I think I’m actually addicted to the smell.

About the Amika Hair Product company
Amika is a professional line of hair care and styling products based out of Brooklyn, NY. As stated on their website, all of their products are “vegetarian-friendly, cruelty-free and
free from sulfates, MIT, MCI, Phthalates and artificial colors.” They include their signature Sea Buckthorn Berry in every product. I can’t tell you how impressed I have been with the quality of these products. Even their packaging provides an very fun and pleasant experience.
Here are the amika product review for the products that I purchased:
This shampoo and conditioner makes my hair so soft and shiny. It is sulfate free, which is important for my fine hair. I cannot use anything that is too harsh. The conditioner is silky smooth and leaves your hair feeling gorgeous and easy to comb through.
THIS product is my saving grace! It is a very light oil in a spray bottle. Most oil primers are way to heavy for my hair and leave it feeling greasy, but not this one! Somehow it always absorbs perfectly and brushing and styling my hair is 10X easier. I have even noticed fewer split ends since using this product. Magic? Maybe! It is a Wizard after all…
I love this heat shield spray! It has a faintly vanilla smell, and again, is not super heavy. My hair never feels weighed down, but it still feels like it is adding another layer of protection for my delicate hair against high heat from my Chi straightening iron (Amazon link – I chose this one because it has a temperature control feature!) and hairdryer.
If I could only buy one product from amika, it would be the Wizard Primer, but this sure comes in a close second! I struggle to get volume in my flat hair, and this really gives extra hold and makes my hair feel more voluminous but still soft and touchable. I like that it has the same great smell, and offers body without weighing my hair down. It doesn’t make it frizzy either which is a big bonus for me.
I used to have the RX Mask, but I think they’ve replaced it with the Kure Mask. I like to use this conditioning mask once a week, for extra moisture and softness. This one is super thick, smells amazing and works well for me! I only need to use about a teaspoon at a time, working through my ends, let it sit for 3-5 minutes then rinse. Always leave my hair feeling soft and smelling great.
Amika has recently re-done the packaging on some of their products, so the products pictured here are actually the old product packaging. I think all of their packaging is so incredibly cute, and they have improved it even more with their new packaging, changing some of the colors of different items!
