Amika’s nourishing shampoo is especially good for dry, color-treated, or damaged hair.

Birchbox Breakdown

Don’t let the word ‘oil’ scare you off — this weightless serum disappears into hair without any residue, and adds tons of softness and shine. Just a couple drops smoothes flyaways, tames frizzies, and protects from heat styling. Good hair days just got infinitely easier.

How it Works

Obliphica oil pumps hydration into damaged strands, smoothing the outer cuticle for noticeably sleeker, shinier strands. This nourishing formula also improves overall hair health, from elasticity to dehydrated ends.

How to Use

Apply a few drops to the palms of your hands and smooth evenly through damp hair before styling to protect against heat. We also love to use it on dry hair — smooth a couple drops from the mid-length through ends of hair for extra shine and smoothness.

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Hippophaea rhamnoides (Obliphica) oil, Panthenol, Triticum vulgare (Wheat) germ oil, Simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, Parfum (Fragrance)

Solid B+

I purchased the full size of this product after the smaller size came in my birchbox. Initially I really liked this oil until I tried the kerastase oil and found the kerastase product was an A+.

Ive been using this product for about 2 years. It leaves my hair smelling delicious and is light enough that it doesn't weigh my hair down!! Im not sure if it actually protects from heat but I know that it makes my hair shiny!

WOW

This is the only hair product I've ever tried like it. I have fine straight hair and I put a little on after a shower and go to bed with wet hair. And I wake up looking like I've blow dried and styled my hair. It's not a kinky mess. And I can go a couple days with out washing my hair after using this. Never thought that would happen with an oil. My hair has never felt softer and healthier. It feels like hair looks on shampoo commercials. Seriously.

Very rich and smooth, but a bit heavy
Purchased

I only use this product when my hair is EXTRA dry, after a long day at the beach. It is a very rich and thick oil so you have to be careful when applying too much.
The smell is mild, and if you really have extra dry hair this would be perfect. I do love it, just have to use in moderation.

Amazing Treatment

Okay, first of all I have been using this product for years...I did not get a sample in my Birchbox and I have not purchased through Birchbox (yet...I am still working on my original bottle, it lasts THAT long)!
It is such an amazing product though, that I had to review it...points or no points.
The smell is amazing, it does not leave my hair greasy, and I can use it before styling, after blowdrying but before my flat iron, and after the flat iron for flyaways. If this brand made ANY product that smelled like this I would buy it. The reviewer that mentioned a fabric softener is spot-on, I just want to envelop myself in this scent. I even rub my hands together like I am putting on hand lotion after I put it in my hair...feels great on the skin!

Lovely locks
Purchased

I love love love this serum! I just take a lil dab and rub it into my wet hair leaving shiny weightless beautiful locks! I mostly just use it at the ends because I don't want the roots to get greasy. My roots tend to be a bit oily at times regardless. This serum leaves such a great scent too. I use it almost daily.

This oil treatment is a little too heavy for my fine hair. I only use it on the ends and have to be really careful not to over do it, or my hair looks greasy. I have tried other oil products that are lighter that I prefer (agave). Smells nice.
