Amika hair masks

Most of these masks are for all hair types but your choice will vary depending on what benefits you are looking for. You will also find that a lot of these masks you can mix or alternate using to get multiple benefits. Everyone should use a hair mask at least once a week to keep their hair healthy and manageable. So lets figure out what mask(s) are best for you!

Amika soulfood nourishing mask

Lets Start With My Favorite, Soulfood Nourishing Mask:

This mask is my favorite because I love how soft it makes my hair feel. Quench your thirsty strands with this deeply conditioning and restorative treatment that penetrates the cuticle to strengthen from the inside out. Split ends are sealed, shine is enhanced and elasticity is restored.

Use either as a weekly mask or an everyday conditioner after the Amika shampoo of your choice. Leave in for 5 minutes and rinse. This mask used weekly is for all hair types. I only recommend this mask as an everyday conditioner for dry medium and coarse hair. Buy mask.

Amika flash instant shine mask

Next Up Is Flash Instant Shine Mask:

I actually love mixing Flash with Soulfood. Flash by itself isn’t the most moisturizing but gives the hair beautiful shine. So together they are the perfect combo of moisture and shine. Flash visibly smooths and leaves hair with a silky finish in just 60 seconds.

This mask is for all hair types, especially those looking to boost shine level. Buy mask.

Amika bust your brass intense repair mask

Blondes Say Hello To Bust Your Brass Intense Repair Mask:

This luxurious, ultra-hydrating and reparative toning mask strengthens damaged hair, while violet pigments tone brassy hues. After one use, hair is less prone to breakage and is more manageable.

I recommend this mask to all my icy blonde clients. It keeps them looking cool by toning unwanted brassiness. It is also perfect for natural silvers and grays. I don’t recommend this mask for my honey, sandy, or beige blondes it will make them too cool. The bust your brass shampoo and conditioner is enough for these blondes.

Use as a weekly mask or as needed. Leave in for 5 minutes and rinse. Toning results will vary depending on porosity and length of time left in hair. Buy mask.

Amika the kure intense bond repair mask
The Cure To Damaged hair, The Kure Intense Bond Repair Mask:

This mask transforms damaged and dry hair. It significantly hydrates, moisturizes, and improves manageability after one use.

After cleansing with The Kure Bond Repair Shampoo, gently massage mask through hair from roots to ends. Leave on for 10 minutes, then rinse. Use mask weekly.

This mask is for medium and coarse hair types, especially those looking to strengthen their hair. Buy mask.

Amika the kure mult-task repair treatment
A Perfect Pair To The Kure Mask, The Kure Multi-Task Repair Treatment:

A fast acting rinse-out mask that doubles as a leave-in treatment, clinically proven to strengthen hair, reduce breakage, and prevent future damage. Works to moisturize, strengthen your strands, and repair damage in 60 seconds. You can rinse out treatment or leave it in. For a stronger mane, in an instant.

I recommend this mask for people looking to strengthen their hair but don't have time to wait 10 minutes like with The Kure Mask. The Kure Multi-Task Repair Treatment anyone has time for, with only having to stay in for 60 seconds or you leave it in, you don't even have to rinse. I also think this treatment is great to use right after you rinse out The Kure Mask. This treatment is for all hair types. Buy mask.

Amika dream routine overnight hydration treatment
It's Time To Put Your Dry Hair To Bed With Dream Routine Overnight Hydration Treatment:

This no-rinse, silicone-free overnight hair treatment is clinically proven to intensely moisturize strands. Hair is 3x more hydrated and manageable by morning. Benefits last up to 4 washes. Pump 1-4 times into hands depending on hair length and thickness. Apply to dry or damp hair before bedtime. Distribute from mid-lengths to ends and comb through hair. Now you’re ready for your beauty sleep!

I recommend Dream Routine to everyone! Everyone's hair could use so hydration and I love how easy it is to use. I use this every night before bed. It is very lightweight but if you are worried about it weighing your hair down apply every other night. Buy mask.

Amika hydro rush intense moisture hair mask

Need More Hydration? Drench Your Strands With Hydro Rush Intense Moisture Hair Mask:

This rich hair mask is for coarse, curly and coily hair that has trouble absorbing moisture. After one use hair is easier to manage and is 5x more hydrated.
