We love a good hair mask for a shot of nourishment and shine when locks are looking a but dull and lacklustre, and this one-minute wonder is perfect for a quick fix.

Designed for both fine and oily hair, the deeply conditioning mask claims to nourish dried out hair, while using amino acids to keep colour bright and pigmented and leave a shiny finish.

How to use the amika Flash Instant Shine Sephora hair mask

The bestselling hair mask can be used as a replacement for conditioner, or for those with thicker or more parched locks can be applied after using shampoo and conditioner.

To use:

  • Squeeze out excess water from your hair, or wrap in a hair towel or cotton t-shirt to soak up more water.
  • Divide damp hair into sections and then apply, covering lengths and ends.
  • Let the mask work its magic for 60 seconds and then rinse out.

Where is the amika Flash Instant Shine Mask available in the UK?

After selling out in Sephora earlier this year, the bestselling hair mask is now available to buy from online beauty retailer Birchbox.

‘If your hair is looking a little dull and you need a fast but effective solution, look no futher than the Amika Flash Instant Shine mask!’ writes the website.

‘The amino acids and UV filters keep your colour bold and vibrant and your hair nourished, revitalised and shining brightly.

‘Did we mention it does all of this in just 60 seconds? Talk about a quick-fix!’

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
