I am already obsessed with Amika products, I tried their hairdryer a few weeks ago and love it!  What I didn’t know is the hairdryer has a special Ion feature on the hairdryer that helps open up the hair cuticle to help treatments absorb into the hair more deeply.  I had to try it with Amika’s Nourishing Mask. I’m always looking for shampoo’s and conditioner’s that will keep my hair soft and manageable.  I have long thick hair that is dry and gets tangled so easily.  Amika is also the only brand that I have used that has an expiration date.  The shelf life is 18-24 months because their products are all natural.

The Sweat Shoppe LA is amazing, first of…
