Good things come in amber bottles. Like Miller Lite and my new hair obsession, Amika Oil Treatment. And while we’re talking about bottles, isn’t this one just beautiful? I love the print. What’s inside the amber bottle is even better though. It’s an oil serum intended to strengthen hair and eliminate the frizzies. There’s Argan Oil, Omega 7 and Vitamin C, but the power is in the Obliphica, a.k.a. Sea Buckthorn Berry. This ingredient has a high percentage of the rare Omega 7 (about 40%) and is a workhouse at replenishing your hair. It’s also got mad anti-aging properties and is cropping up in skin care products as well.
Two years ago, I set out on a mission to grow my hair. You can see the “before” image on our About page. I get about two trims per year, and that’s because I don’t have split ends. I only run to the salon when my layers need a refresh. And it’s been working for me. But the key is protecting the ends of my hair and preventing heat damage. Amika Oil Treatment is a savior! The consistency of the oil is a little thicker, but it doesn’t feel heavy in the hair. I massage it into the ends of my hair before blow-drying (which I only do about every 2-3 days). If I know I’m going to be outside or in the sun all day, I also apply it then. I fend off crispy ends like its my job.
Can we also talk about the smell? It’s euphoric. Like a tropical getaway. I want to live in the place where this smell comes from. But for now, I’ll just continue to treat my hair with the magic of the Sea Buckthorn Berry.
