Amika’s Thicc Volumizing Base


Amika launched a new option for hair volume—its Thicc Volumizing Base reportedly boosts volume in hairstyles while encouraging long-term growth in fine, thin or thinning hair.

The product contains Givaudan Active Beauty’s Redensyl (INCI: Glycerin (and) Aqua (and) Sodium Metabisulfite (and) Larix Europaea Wood Extract (and) Glycine (and) Zinc Chloride (and) Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract), meant to encourage long-term hair growth and reduce hair loss by stimulating hair follicles. Other ingredients include seabuckthorn seed oil, an Amika staple; hydrolyzed rice protein to reportedly enhance volume; and hydrolyzed vegetable protein to thicken and moisturize.

The product is emulsified and distributed from hair roots to tips before being either blow dried or used on dry hair. It reportedly leaves a matte-satin finish on thicker-appearing hair.
