      Comments about Chi Keratin Silk Infusion:

      I have tried a lot of serums on my hair in the past to lessen flyaways and frizz. I have a sort of in-between straight and wavy hair, so I usually have to straighten the heck out of my hair to get a smooth and silky texture. This stuff makes it way easier to accomplish, without damaging my hair with heat. It only takes less than a dime-size amount for my shorter hair, it covers all the strands in a lightweight formula that smooths and softens my hair. There's no greasy feeling, it doesn't feel weighed down. I purchased the larger bottle, but there's a 16 oz one I think as well, and honestly, this product will last you so long that it is worth every penny, it will replace any other serum you use for frizz, it's amazing!

          Comments about Chi Keratin Silk Infusion:

          I have been a fan of the original Silk Infusion for a few years. A friend introduced me and at first I resisted, saying "I have baby fine hair...I can't put anything oily on it!" I was so wrong. It doesn't flatten my hair and makes it so easy to comb through when wet; therefore no breakage. This new one with Keratin is EVEN BETTER. My hair has never felt more silky! It feels fabulous. Amazing product. Expensive, but worth it and lasts a long time. You only use a dime sized amount.

                  Use on damp hair or dried hair. Little bit does the trick but i have quite thin straight hair so that may vary for some. Smells awesome!! Does not weigh down my hair like other products do.

                    This serum smells good but the scent is not long lasting.Not only is this overpriced but its full of bad silicones.This didnt make my hair shiny nor did it help for frizz.I didnt see any results that would make my hair feel like silk.

                        Comments about Chi Keratin Silk Infusion:

                        My hair has very limited heat damage, and a bit of color damage. I use repairing shampoo & conditioner, plus leave-in conditioner.
                        This product is great for when I don't want to style my hair, but also don't want the frizz. It seems very pricey, but a little goes a VERY long way. I've been using it for months, and only have to use it between washes, NOT daily. I have chest-length hair, and I use a dime-size amount.
                        After less than an hour after application, hair is smooth and more cooperative. I find myself running my fingers through it, without hitting frizz & tangles!
                        The most important aspect of an anti-frizz solution, is NOT making hair greasy and oily! My hair gets that way quickly, so that's very important to me. This product adds shine & smoothness WITHOUT the need to wash more often. I have tried a great number of anti-frizz solutions, and this is the first I will replace as often as I need to.

                          Also, I use oil daily in my hair, will this product make it too oily since it is not a cream?

                            This product is formulated with CHI 44 Ceramic thermal styling to help strengthen and protect the hair from daily use of thermal tools, so the use of an additional heat protectant is optional.

                            You can absolutely use Keratin Silk Infusion daily. Its lightweight formula adds smoothness and shine without any greasy feeling or look.

                            CHI Keratin Silk Infusion is a powerful reconstructing complex that heals and hydrates dry, damaged hair. It is an ideal treatment to prevent breakage and is formulated for safe use on color- and chemically-treated hair.

                          I have long, thick, coarse, Asian hair that is prone to split ends. I want to know the difference between:
                          Chi Silk Infusion vs Chi Keratin Silk Infusion

                          I would use it as a leave in after showering.
                          Don’t care for heat protection because I barely style my hair.

                          What will both do in terms of softness, manageability, frizz control, split end protection. Does one product offers better effect/results over the other?

                          Does either contain SULFATES, ALCOHOL, PARABENS, GLUTEN or SODIUM-CHLORIDE

                            Keratin Silk Infusion is lighter-weight than the original Silk Infusion, making it ideal for those with fine hair, and is also formulated with keratin to strengthen hair that is especially damaged and prone to breakage. For you, we suggest the original Silk Infusion, since you have thick, coarse hair. Both are free of sulfates, parabens, and sodium chloride. CHI does not claim any of their products are gluten-free. They are not alcohol-free. The silicone base of either formula will help to make your hair more manageable and soft by smoothing the hair's cuticle.

                            You can use it with or without heat, and yes, it would be applied to damp hair after showering.

                            Silk Infusion can be applied when hair is dry or wet. This product can also be used to finish your style and add shine. Unlike the Silk Infusion, the Leave-in Conditioner should be used when the hair is wet. These products should not replace a weekly mask.

                        • Q:

                          What is the difference between the Keratin Silk Infusion by CHI and the regular Silk Infusion by CHI with the red cap? I have been using the regular silk infusion for years but I was looking at this Keratin one and am wondering what the difference is?

                          I have naturally curly hair, that I wash & straighten (blow fry & flat iron) about once a week. I have naturally dryer hair. It is individually a fine texture however I have a lot of hair making it appear thicker. My hair can absorb product without becoming greasy. I also have chemical processing (highlights) and I am trying to stop the breakage so it can grow long again.

                          What is recommended between the two?

                            Keratin Silk Infusion is lighter-weight than the original Silk Infusion, making it ideal for those with fine hair, and is also formulated with keratin to strengthen hair that is especially damaged and prone to breakage. You may prefer Keratin Silk Infusion, depending on your concerns and the condition of your hair.

                          I heard that too much keratin can make the hair brittle. By using this every other day on healthy hair wouldn't it make it brittle since this products contains keratin?

                            CHI Keratin Silk Infusion will not make the hair brittle. It contains Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil. These are the benefits of these oils. Using CHI Keratin Leave in conditioner will also keep the hair feeling soft and smooth.

                            Argan oil Benefits:
                            • Locks in moisture leaving hair light and non-greasy
                            • Improves elasticity and strengthens hair to prevent breakage
                            • Keeps hair smooth and adds shine

                            Jojoba Oil Benefits:
                            • Removes layers of build up from the hair and scalp for better treatment results
                            • Minimizes the loss of protein in the hair to promote stronger, healthier hair
                            • Conditions hair and scalp by giving essential nutrients to both

                            When using Keratin infused products, hair becomes very strong and some may perceive it as dry because of the way it feels when wet. This can be prevented by using the CHI Keratin Leave-in Conditioner to soften the hair after being shampooed.

                            Yes, you can apply this product as frequently as needed. This product dramatically improves elasticity, prevents future breakage, adds intense hydration, and restores & maintains softness and shine.
