Heat Defense Serum shields hair from heat styling and blow drying, protecting against overheating and damage to the delicate hair fiber. The nutrient-packed elixir forms a protective, humidity-proof layer around each hair which prevents moisture loss and ensures a frizz-free, smooth, and shiny finish. The lightweight formulation contains dimethicone to protect against thermal treatments, prevent moisture loss, and form a barrier on the hair that smooths down the cuticle, as well as vitamin-rich sea buckthorn berry to keep hair healthy-looking.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates

What else you need to know:
This product is free of sodium chloride and artificial colors. It is safe for color-treated, Brazilian-treated, and Keratin-treated hair.

Sea buckthorn has been thoroughly researched in over 130 modern scientific studies that have found this berry promotes health. Women throughout the ages have used the obliphica berry to protect themselves against the ravages of the sun and the elements. Founded on tradition and now based on extensive scientific research, sea buckthorn is one of the biggest functional whole food rediscoveries of the 21st century.

amika was born in Brooklyn in 2007 as the wild child of creativity and craft. Inspired by the exuberant energy of the city, the company deemed the backstage of fashion weeks and editorial shoots as its research and development center. It sought to create a line loved by professionals and clients alike; one that delivers of-the-moment trends and looks as good as it performs. Like a typical New Yorker, amika has a strong point of view. Anything but ordinary, we stand for – experimentation over perfection fun over elite individuality over conformity and collaboration over ego This is hair styling re-imagined.
