Wish you could hit the reset button on your clients’ damaged hair? amika Virgin is a two-step professional system that is here to help you rejuvenate your client’s most damaged strands. Virgin works to create new, and reconnect existing, disulfide bonds that form healthy hair, repair damage and prevent additional breakage from happening. amika Virgin aims to bring hair back to its original, virgin-like state even when your client wants to drastically change their look.


This two-step process can be used as a single service or applied in combination with any chemical treatment and no increase to the client’s appointment time. Virgin is comprised of two steps: Virgin Protect and Virgin Lock.


Virgin Protect penetrates deep within the hair’s cortex to protect hair bonds and prevent chemical damage. The high-tech delivery system also works to create new bonds for advanced repair of existing chemical damage. By protecting and repairing the hair, Virgin Protect leaves the client with resilient hair that looks and feels strong.


Virgin Lock is a rinse-out treatment designed to be used after Virgin Protect. The nutrient-rich formula fuses the newly-formed bonds within the cortex to strengthen the structure, leaving hair closer to its natural state. Apply Virgin Lock evenly from root to tip and rinse after 2 to 3 minutes followed by conditioner for best results.


If your client wants a dramatic reduction in breakage, an increase in elasticity and an overall enhanced look, amika Virgin is exactly what they need. Get the look when coloring your client’s hair or as a stand-alone treatment. Both options rejuvenate locks and preserve your client’s hair virginity.
