It’s one thing to get a haircut in Shelburne, it’s another thing to have a great hairstyle that you can maintain with the right products.
Today we want to talk to you about our Amika products, an inclusive brand that’s a friend to hair, hair stylist, her, him, they, you, and Changes Hair Studio!
Amika as a company was started in Brooklyn New York where creativity and culture are a way of life. They are made up of a collective team of creatives, hairstylists, chemists and product junkies and this leads to some radical thinking from the products themselves to the packaging! Amika is a brand that bends the rules and they’ve created an amazing company culture that focuses on inclusions, positivity and fun.
This incredible brand stands for 5 major principles-
All hair is welcome. Amika has 10 different collections for every hair concern- no matter ethnicity, age or gender!
ALWAYS cruelty free! They have never and will never conduct animal testing.
Going greener! Amika focuses on reducing waste and switching their bottles to 90% PCR- more sustainable packaging = environmentally friendly!
Cleaner ingredients! No sulfates, parabens, aluminum starch, phthalates or DEA in any of their products Friend to all! Amika is here for you, everyone of you beautiful beings.
So now that you know WHY we’re obsessed with Amika as a brand - let’s fill you in on why we’re in love with the products!
All Amika products contain the SUPERFRUIT Sea Buckthorn Berry. This is one of the most potent natural ingredients in the world and provides major benefits for both skin and hair!
It contains high levels of essential fatty acids (Omega 3, 6, 9 and 7) and Vitamin A and these are responsible for increasing synthesis of elastin and collagen. This makes it the HOLY GRAIL ingredient for both your hair and scalp!
This berry has 12X the amount of Vitamin C as oranges, just as much Vitamin E as found in wheat germ and 3X more Vitamin A than carrots! It is jam packed full of good stuff that your hair and scalp are hungry for!
Oh and one more thing- all Amika products are scented with their own delicious signature fragrance! These products feel and smell like luxury while treating your hair and scalp from the inside out!
AMIKA is dedicated to giving back in what ever way they can.
They are involved in many different organizations like Hairtostay, a non-profit that is raising funds and awareness around a scalp cooling treatment that can prevent hair loss during chemotherapy for cancer patients. They also are involved with Terracycle and are working towards converting their packaging to sustainable post-consumer recycled plastic.
We love when a brand is as great as its products, and Amika has proven to be just that!
