    I use the product daily to add shine to my hair and smooth it down. It's also great for using right before I straighten my hair. It helps to add a lot of volume and body to my hair.

        I use this religiously after every shower and if I feel like my hair might be getting too frizzy. I love this stuff more than I can say! I have coarse-ish black hair and I generally just use this from mid-strands to ends and it never leaves my hair looking oily, but always leaves it smelling wonderful!

            Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

            I've read lots of comments and noticed that most people use this on damp hair prior to blow drying and such. I have naturally curly (3c-4a) hair and I use this product when I straighten. I first use the tresseme heat tamer spray before blow drying (it's a really great detangler & I trust its heat protection properties), then I use very small amounts of this product in sections before flat ironing.
            This serum gets my hair silky straight. I would say it's almost completely humidity proof. Unless I have an extra sweaty gym session, my hair stays bone straight until I decide to wash it. Give it a try. Hope this is some help to you coarse curly girls, like myself.

              I'm obsessed with my hair. OBSESSED. I've tried so many products that I wouldn't even dare to try to count. This product, however, has been a stronghold in my routine for 13 years. I cannot say this about any other hair product.
              I put it in damp hair before styling. It's especially helpful when I plan on blow drying my hair straight.
              It smells amazing and will make your hands incredibly soft (bonus!). Also, the medium bottle lasts me at least a year. Totally worth the $!

                    After I shower and wash my hair and my hair is still damp or wet I use it. I put a dime size dollup in my hand and rub it all over my hands. Then I first run my hands down the outside of my hair for the shine and then ease my fingers through the scalp (head upside down) making sure I get to all my hair roots. The rest I rub my hair between my two hands to spread it on all the strands.

                        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.

                        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.

                        Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex can be used alone as a leave-in treatment. 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.

                    • Q:

                      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?
