        This was a great shampoo especially when used with the complete Chi Keratin Line. Wonderful smell and excellent lather! Affordable! I am a 3c/4a natural that minimally uses a flat iron twice a month. My hair is about brastrap and very thick/curly.

            I finally had to cave and dye my hair to get rid of the greys, and my hairstylist said I needed a different shampoo now that's gentle on dyed hair. Every sulfate free shampoo I tried just left my hair looking greasy after a day! This is the only shampoo I'll ever use again. Sulfate free so gentle for dyed hair, but also has keratin to control my frizz. Leaves my hair soft, shiny, smells good, not greasy one bit. It's amazing! Never looking back!

              • Q:

                I have thick curly/wavy dry hair (thinned it out a couple of times, which makes it frizzy). I use a flat iron every other day since my hair does not get greasy or oily until the third day. I was wondering if this product would help loosen my curls to make it easier to style or the silk infusion/recovery? Help!

                  A:

                  When using the CHI Keratin Reconstructing Shampoo to smooth frizz, we recommend you use it as a system with the CHI Keratin Conditioner as well. Although these products contain Keratin (an essential protein for strong and healthy hair), CHI's Keratin system is not a chemical treatment designed to alter your natural curl pattern. It is designed to coat the hair shaft to reduce frizz, as well as repair and prevent damage. The Keratin Leave-in mist and Silk Infusion will also help in retaining your hair's moisture and preventing styling damage while providing for smooth styling.

              • Q:

                I have been using CHI infra shampoo for about a year. I love the smell and how it leaves my hair. I blow dry & flat iron my hair almost every day. It's not oily so I am able to not wash my hair everyday. I usually wash it every other day. When I feel lazy, even every third day but by the third day my hair feels/looks greasy. I have noticed that I need a little more moisture on my ends. Not damaged just a little dry. Don't want a shampoo that's too heavy since I don't wash it every day. I want to stay in the CHI line. Will it be safe to use this keratin shampoo?

                  A:

                  Keratin Shampoo is a wonderful choice for anyone who styles daily using heat styling tools, as it helps to repair and strengthen fragile, over-processed hair of all types and textures. Just like Infra Moisture Therapy Shampoo, Keratin Shampoo is sulfate-free and very gentle. Keratin Shampoo helps to reinforce hair against breakage and to add softness and shine, so it is pretty perfect for your concerns.

                  We also suggest using CHI 44 Iron Guard styling products each time you heat style your hair to protect hair from heat's damaging effects. We highly recommend the Keratin Silk Infusion treatment, which is formulated with CHI 44 Ceramic thermal styling to help strengthen and protect the hair from daily use of thermal tools, to further help add moisture, smooth and strengthen the hair cuticle for restored shine and softness:

              • Q:

                Is this safe for actual Keratin Treated hair? The second ingredient is Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfate which I've read is related to sulfate.

                  A:

                  This shampoo is sulfate-free as well as sodium chloride-free. Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate is a foaming agent that is naturally derived from coconuts. If you have a concern about a particular formula or ingredient, it is always best to consult your stylist for his or her advice on at-home care and maintenance of your keratin treatment.
