                          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.

                        Which one would be better for moisturization and help with frizzy hair ....this product or chi silk
                        Asked on 12/17/2015 by Brenda

                          A:

                          Biosilk Silk Therapy and the CHI Silk Infusion have some similarities. Both contain silk proteins, add shine, assist with moisture retention and repair damage. The main points of difference for these products are that Silk Infusion has more reconstructive proteins for more heavily damaged hair, has a thicker consistency for course hair and has added heat protection. The Silk Therapy serum has a thinner consistency for normal hair types, as well as the ability to hold three times it's molecular weight in moisture. Which one is best for you depends largely on the density of your hair type and the current state of your hair. Both products will reduce frizz and help retain moisture. However, if chemical and styling damage aren't a major concern for your hair, the proteins in the Silk Infusion may be more than you need.
