Amika Hair Products + Lifestyle Blog

My friend bought me some Amika hair products as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and I fell in love with the brand upon the first use! It works great, is lightweight on my hair, and has a nice, fresh, sweet smell.

Asian hair tends to be slippery and shiny, thick and heavy, and when you rub it between your fingers, it's almost course in texture even though it looks very smooth.  That means that it generally doesn't hold curl easily (but once it's curled it STAYS) and any layers are hard to see.  I usually get my hair cut differently every time but no one can tell unless I lose some major length or do something crazy like get a pixie cut (which I did in high school but with the layers invisible, I just looked like a boy). 

Anyway, I digress.  I mostly air dry my hair because the last time I colored and used heat regularly, my hair was a frizzy, dead mess.  I'm not the kind of person who has the patience for tons of hair maintenance so it was totally my own doing (and I tried joining the "no poo movement" which really stripped the crap out of my hair but that's a whole 'nother Oprah).

But when I DO style my hair, I always use the "Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray" for heat protection and I get massive volume.  I lay down on the bed and dangle my hair over the edge or bend at the waist while blow drying and that really helps give it some lift.

Some days I'll go the extra mile and do the rest (which is only about 10 more minutes, haha) In that case, I mist my roots with the "Amika Undone Texture Spray".  I also get under my layers, a little bit, and work it in with my fingers.  Then I begin flat ironing.  After, I rub a little bit of the "Amika Haute Mess Texture Gel" on the tips and my layers become much more visible.  

I should just do it all the time because my hair has major volume that lasts all day and I feel way prettier, but I guess I'd rather be lazy than pretty. 

What's your favorite hair product and are you super loyal or do you like to try lots of things? 

How much time do you spend on your hair every day?
