    Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

    First of all, if you think this product is greasy, you're probably using too much. I've been using Biosilk serum for 10 years now and I won't stop! I rub a nickel size amount into my palms and rub my hands together to warm it up. Then, I run it evenly through my hair when it's damp OR dry. It helps my dry hair feel soft and look shiny. It's a little pricey but trust me when I say, a little goes a long way. If you've tried the CHI hair serum, the results are similar to that but the Biosilk serum smells SO much better. You won't regret it!

        I have been using this product for 15 YEARS!! the price is high but one bottle has lasted me 2 years and I use it regularly. It is lightweight enough with still being moisturizing and I have hair that tends to get weighed down easily bc it is so fine. seems like this product is too good to be true.

        Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

        I go and get my hair done every 6-8 weeks adding blonde to my hair does take it's toll. After showering I comb my hair with a wet brush and apple a small amount of Biosilk and my hair dries amazing! It really adds nutrients to hair. My only hang up is that it is pricey. But it does last a long time.

                        We recommend you trying the new Tea Tree line, which has Tea Tree, Peppermint and chamomile in it to soothe and refresh the scalp. It is specially formulated to treat a multitude of scalp problems, including dry and itchy scalp. Remember when using it that the shampoo should sit on the scalp for 3-5 minutes before rinsing and applying conditioner. If you would like to try a serum as well, there is one in the Tea Tree line that will promote healthy shiny hair!

                    • Q:

                      I have fine hair that tangles a lot, and dry, damaged perm. Will this product help the tangles and perm damage? And will it give hair some shine? I have been using the Lanza Healing ColorCare Trauma Treatment, and would like to try something else. I know not to use much or they can weigh my hair down. I only use on my wet hair as a leave in, and dry my hair with a hair dryer with a diffuser, and scrunch to keep perm curls. I don't want to lose the curl from my perm, only condition and help any dry damage, and help make my hair shine.
                      Thank you,
                      C. G.

                        A:

                        Biosilk Silk Therapy aids in the protection and retention of moisture in hair as well as skin. We have heard from those who use it as an all-over body moisturizer and others who find it great as a cuticle moisturizer. For use on skin, we recommend that you apply it to areas that are prone to dryness (i.e., hands, feet, elbows, and knees). Because the serum is of a thicker viscosity, it may prove a bit heavy as an everyday facial moisturizer.
