After 782 reviews (with a 4.5 total rating) and 20,000 saves on Sephora, the Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask (ranging in price between $12 and $28) is back in stock at Sephora. But it won’t stick around for long, so act now.

Let’s back up to explain the magic behind this hair mask, and why it’s making everyone buy a backup—just in case it goes out of stock again.

The weekly deep conditioning treatment works to repair dry, damaged hair, which is great—but the reason it’s become really unique is because of the potent mix of jojoba oil, sea buckthorn extract, and vitamin C. When those three ingredients combine, it creates a perfect, beautiful storm of restoration, thus replenishing hair back to its natural vibrancy and health (and making split ends a thing of the past).

Basically, the combination of these three main ingredients turns each strand of your hair into silk. I kid you not—nothing makes my hair silkier, shinier, and more hydrated (without weighing it down) than this little jar of wonder.

And if the scent of a product is important to you, great news: This one smells like sunshine and happiness. Or, basically, citrus. Here’s some more good news: It’s free of parabens, sulfates, and other gross chemicals, while also being cruelty-free.

Wondering how to use this miracle mask? Just use once or twice a week in place of your conditioner after washing your hair. Leave it on for about five minutes, and thoroughly wash it out. Then, just be prepared to say “adios” to split ends and dull, dry hair.

Are you reading this only to find that the Amika mask is sold out again? Darnit! First, check Amika’s site—the company is excellent at keeping the mask in stock. As a sub, give Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask ($36) a try: It’s a beloved choice for those wanting to give tresses major TLC, STAT. Or, try out ApotheCARE Essentials The Colorist Deep Nourishing Mask ($2.99)—it’s all about healing dry hair, and it costs less than a latte, which is super incredible.

Happy masking!
