Amika Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm
Forget unattainable and exclusive beauty ideals and discover Amika. Founded by industry outsiders in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 2007, the brand champions itself as welcoming and celebrating all hair types, textures and styles. The Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm smooths disobedient and damaged strands, defies the powers of humidity and gives dry, poofy hair a softening, moisturising nudge in the right direction with a swathe of plant extracts – all while protecting your hair from heat up to 232°C and shielding against harmful UV rays.
When hair just won’t do what you want it to – whether it’s too damaged, weather-beaten or just plain rebellious – the Velveteen Dream Smoothing Balm will smooth it into submission while locking in moisture and encouraging shine.
Working to relax static strands, soften and moisturise with conditioning polymers, this balm is ideal for styling dry and frizzy hair. Wild cherry bark extract fosters shine and flexibility, while sea buckthorn (an incredibly potent and natural ‘superfuit’) pumps strands with omega 7 fatty acids to promote elasticity and provide superior levels of hydration to both hair and scalp. If the word ‘humidity’ makes you recoil, this formula is set to be your new best friend, because it locks in style and smoothness, so that the elements can’t undo your ’do.
Take a small amount and apply to damp hair. Heat style as desired.

Transparency lies at the heart of our philosophy which is why we have partnered with tech-platform – Provenance – to cut through the industry ‘noise’ and equip you with key facts that matter. A 'proof point' with a green tick means a third party has verified the accuracy of the statement whereas no green tick means that there isn't independent confirmation (yet!), but that the brand has still supplied substantiating evidence (which you can view yourself).
