Amika Triple Rx Shampoo and Conditioner

Amika is a salon brand that's also available at Sephora, I remember trying some samples and didn't hate it (I use sephora samples, be it skincare minis or pouches of shampoo, for travels so I always associate them with...Japan haha). When I saw the shampoo on clearance at Marshalls, it seemed harmless to try them out. 

The Triple Rx Shampoo is a slip, nourishing runny oil gel with sea buckhorn berry that repairs, restores and revitalizes dry and damaged hair. I have very fine hair that tend to split easily (I yank them trying to comb through) so this formula seems like my cup of tea.  Anyway, the shampoo has a nutty fruit smell, somewhat natural and non-offensive. I loved using it as it gives a smooth foam and rinses off leaving my hair silky and easy to comb through (not in a silicone sort of way though). 

Anyway, I don't think my hair agrees with it 100% as it also give me some little bumps, scalp acnes as I call them, when I was using it daily. The little bumps went away as soon as I switched to different shampoo. For 8-10 dollars a bottle it's still a nice shampoo, I might repurchase Marshalls never has consistent stock on any particular items anyway.
After my happyish purchase from the shampoo. I also picked up the Amika triple Rx conditioner (Marshalls price of course). This has a solid (almost balm like) texture that's easy to spread and work through the ends. Best of all, it's light weight enough that I can use everyday without making my hair limp or yucky. This also goes well with other Japanese drugstore shampoo I have. 


  1. I've still yet to try high end haircare that's impressive! I was eyeing Oribe (tried it at Barry's bootcamp before... can't remember what I thought) but I need to use up all my stock first. Lol

    1. The highend stuff in US are the same quality as drugstore shampoo from Japan though. I think my favorite right now is tama no hada gardenia...makes my hair so fluffy yet shiny.
