Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

I have really dead ends and I was looking for something to smooth them out. This really does the job and makes my hair look really shiny. I only use about a pea sized amount on my fingertips and then work it on my ends. I guess when I brush through my hair with my hairbrush it gets on my scalp too, which makes my scalp extremely greasy by the end of the day to where I can't even put dry shampoo in it. So I have to wash my hair every single day. But I have seen a difference in my split ends. I like this a lot but

I probably won't end up repurchasing.

        Just a little on my hands. Run through wet, uncombed hair. Then I comb through with a wide tooth comb for even distribution. That's it!

        Hair feels healthier, with more shine.

            You just use a VERY little, like smaller that a pea, otherwise your hair will look oily/flat. But it makes your hair really silky & easy to style.

                    I have severe hair breakage. Would you recommend this product to repair damage? Should the CHI 44 iron guard be used as well?

                      A:

                      The BioSilk Silk Therapy would help to keep your hair from breaking. Silk is a protein that adds moisture and shine:

                      Yes, we definitely recommend using a heat protectant such as 44 Iron Guard every time you heat style to help prevent thermal damage to your hair.

                      A:

                      The new CHI Silk Infusion is a clear serum. The yellow was removed from the current formula, and that is why it is no longer yellow when it comes out of the bottle. The performance is still the same.

CHI Silk Infusion is formulated to provide silk and smoothness to a style, and it can be used on coarse and/or color treated hair. CHI Silk Infusion can be used on damp hair after a shampoo and/or dry hair after the desired style is achieved.

                    My hair is naturally thin, straight, and gets very oily within a few day of washing. I usually blow-dry it and sometimes use my flat iron to make beach waves. When using the CHI Silk Infusion, do I need to apply the product once or twice - once before blowdrying and again before styling with flat iron?
                    If only once, before blowdrying or before using my flat iron?
