Let’s be honest, our hair takes a beating. Even though I am committed to always using heat protection on my stands, my constant heat styling has taken its toll. And while deep-conditioning masks help, it’s not always easy for me to find 20 minutes in my day to sit with a greasy, wet head. So, when I got my hands on the amika Dream Routine Overnight Hydrating Hair Mask, I couldn’t wait to get to bed.

What It Is

This overnight hair treatment is made for anyone with dry or damaged hair. It can boost moisture for 72 hours and leaves you with hair that feels three times more hydrated in the morning. The creamy formula is safe for chemically treated and colored hair. And best of all, it takes less than a minute to apply.

Key Ingredients

This vegan hair mask is infused with hyaluronic acid and coconut water for deep hydration. It also has nourishing ingredients like blue algae and sea buckthorn, which infuse the hair with essential fatty acids and vitamins. Plus, it’s also free of silicone, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and mineral oil.

How to Use It

What I loved most about this mask (aside from repairing my dry strands) is how easy and fast it is to use. You simply comb through your hair to get rid of any tangles, and then apply one to four pumps from mid-lengths to ends, depending on your hair’s length and thickness. If your hair is fine, start with less. While the directions say that the mask can also be applied to damp hair, I found that my dry hair drank it up perfectly. While I considered putting my hair into a bun, I wanted to see if the mask would stain my silk pillowcases, and it didn’t. The things we do in the name of beauty!

The Results

My hair is noticeably softer and even has less of that morning frizz I’ve become accustomed to. I guess I can finally celebrate bed-head! After experimenting with the mask for a few weeks, I found another great use for it. After I style my hair with a curling iron, I mix one pump of the cream in my hands and then scrunch it into the bottom of my hair. Not only am I adding some hydration back into my hair, but it also helps to soften and separate the curls. It’s a less-greasy alternative to using a hair oil.
