As you know, lots of heat styling—say, every day after work (see below for more on that)—means lots of hair damage. To help save my totally stressed hair, I’ve been using hair masks (which I’ve already proclaimed my love for before). This month I’m excited because one of my absolute favorites, amika’s Obliphica Nourishing Mask, will be in some of your Birchboxes! You can use it as a weekly hair mask or a daily conditioner but either way the result is soft, shiny hair. Obliphica oil is rich in natural vitamins and omega acids, which help repair heat styling damage. And the scent is so nice you’ll be smelling your hair all day.
But the mask isn’t the only amika item that I’m obsessed with this month—I’m also totally crushing on our brand new amika Birchbox Mini Ceramic Styler (with an adorable peacock pattern chosen by our Facebook fans!) that’s hitting the Birchbox shop.
I’m always too tired in the morning to actually do my hair (good thing bed head is okay with my boss, eh?) but in the evenings, it’s easy to grab my mini iron and do some quick flat iron waves. They’re my go-to for evening outings because they look put together, but also like I’m not trying too hard. This amika iron comes with a little carrying case and is the perfect size to throw into my purse. Plus, it’s about the size of my hand and weighs only .5 ounces so I’m also not breaking my back just for the sake of cute hair.
