Smell scent kills it
As some one with curly hair I do mask all the time to help my hair... I put this in my hair and the scent gave me allergic reaction and my husband the biggest headache.... it’s thick but doesn’t feel as good as others would not recommend amika: - The Kure Intense Repair Mask
amika:-The Kure Intense Repair Mask
amika soulfood nourishing mask - she’s meant to deeply condition, hydrate and restore dry hair back to its optimal state of vibrancy and health. Jojoba seed oil is there to penetrate the hair follicle and fill in cracks on the cuticle surface, strengthening hair from the inside out. Vitamin C is there to assist in hair growth, repair and the reduction of free radicals. amika the kure intense repair mask - this one, she’s more intense. She’s an intensive turnaround treatment mask that exists to repair, restore and revitalize weakened and damaged hair. Shea Butter smooths and softens with its vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, and borage oil reinforces the hair to make it shinier, softer and more manageable. ⭐️ Both of these masks are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, mineral oil, petrochemicals and artificial colors. They’re vegetarian-friendly and cruelty free! Safe for color-treated, Brazilian-treated and keratin-treated hair. ⭐️ I’ve been loving both of these! With hair masks I prefer to get all the benefits I can and leave them on overnight, so that’s what I did with these. With soulfood, I didn’t leave any too close to my roots, and I rinsed it out of my hair thoroughly the next morning. No leave-in conditioner needed post shower! I was left with super soft and super nourished hair. With the kure, however, I had applied too much to my scalp area and I didn’t wash it out thoroughly enough the next morning, so I was left with greasy hair that only the next hair wash could save 😭 I did still feel and see the benefits of the repairing mask when it came to my previously sad and split ends, and I will remember that the next time I use this very thick mask that it needs a more thorough rinse out 😅 As always, these were such a pleasure to use.
amika:-Soulfood Nourishing Mask
I didn't waste any time trying Amika hydrating hair mask duo out! First, there's the soulfood nourishing mask, which can be used several times a week, or just as conditioner. I have pretty thick hair that, despite my best efforts, gets tangled super easily, and this did a great job of smoothing it out. What's more, I didn't have to use a ton of product, which is usually the case for most conditioners. I keep it on for 3-5 minutes, and it leaves my hair feeling super soft, but not heavy. Onto the other one, the kure intense repair mask, which is, as its name suggests, a more intensive treatment for damaged hair. It's only meant to be used once a week, and you leave it on longer (10-15 mins). This one is SUPER thick, so it takes a while to both apply and rinse out. Since I don't color my hair, and only occasionally style with heat, I don't see myself reaching for this one as much- probably just a once in a while deep treatment. You can find them at sephora - superfood is $28, and kure is $38 for 8.5oz/250ml, though they also sell minis if you want to test them out first. Overall, I prefer the soulfood mask, but both are great treatments to keep hair healthy!

Battle of the amika masks
I have bleached hair and I recently got really serious about fixing the state of it (because 2020 has become the year of self care). I’ve tried everything from Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask to OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector and nothing really got along well with my dry, brittle ends. Soulfood was next to try on my list and when I mention it to my hair stylist she produced these and told me to give The Kure a try too since I was looking for something restoring. Let me just say- I am obsessed! I was hoping to try the smaller bottles and favour one over the other but to my surprise I want the jumbo tubs of both. I’ve seen a lot of talk around amika: - Soulfood Nourishing Mask so I’m not surprised that it was a godsend. It’s thick and buttery and leaves my hair super soft. It can be left on and used as a mask or it can be rinsed quickly as a daily conditioner. The only downside I found was that after using it as a mask it felt like a little bit oily (which is why I knocked a star off), but overall my hair was silky soft and my ends were less frayed. This almost makes your hair like a sheet of silk which might be weighing down if you have fine hair. amika: - The Kure Intense Repair Mask surprised me more than soulfood, I will say. I’ve seen it bouncing around here and it was always good but not the best. I thought this was a game changer for my hair personally. Unlike soulfood, this one is reco’d straight as a mask for weekly use. It’s suggested to leave it on for 10 mins or so but I like to do an hour or two (I’m working from home and I’m masking a LOT more simply because I can). This one rinses out so nicely and doesn’t leave any oily slick feeling. My hair is so soft and bouncy! It feels and looks so healthy and due to its repairing abilities I know my hair not only looks healthier but is actually healthier. I can go days with a blowout that still moves freely and isn’t frizzy, dry or weighed down. I’ve already ordered a larger size of the Kure and I’ll be doing the same with soulfood after the mini I got in my amika: - Brooklyn Hustle Haircare Bestsellers Starter Set is gone (I’m going to do a review for amika: - Perk Up Talc-Free Dry Shampoo as well) !
amika:-Brooklyn Hustle Haircare Bestsellers Starter Set
I’ll admit, I’m not the best at taking care of my hair. My hair is naturally Afro kinky/curly and I tend to wear my hair either in braids, or just out; either blown out / straightened or a wash & go / twist out style. My hair is also prone to dryness and I occasionally get dandruff, which has somewhat subsided due to me switching up my hair routine a lil. Now if u know about hair types, curly/coily hair tends to be more prone to dryness naturally, as it takes longer for sebum to travel down the hair follicles and moisturise the hair. Though mine can be super dry! 😅 I’m definitely more motivated these days to take care of my hair🙌🏽 So I won’t be doing braids for a while 😭 - I’ve had my hair out all summer; will see how I feel when the weather switches up. Today I used The Kure from Amika, which was my first time using a hair mask in a while. The texture is quite dense and pudding-like and it smells like sweet shea butter. After washing it out, I found my curls were moisturised and defined. I also used some of the Velveteen Dream balm, which is a non-greasy formula, that left my hair feeling soft. Will update you guys on these products and styling too 🤗
