            love this, leaves my hair very soft sometimes this is all i use. You also don't need to use too much product, so the price seems expensive at first but it's worth it in the end....ENJOY !!

                I was originally looking for a detangler, and bought this product, even though it does not say it is a detangler, which it definitely IS. But it also smooths, strengthens, and curbs breakage. All on the first use! I said in the review that it was expensive AND a good value because the 16 oz. bottle did cost more than I wanted to spend, but you use so little product that the bottle will last forever.

                Smells so wonderful but does not work at all! I don't feel or see how it did anything for my hair. It is as if it is not even what it says it is at all. It is not greasy but I don't feel any conditioning value at all. I had 110% better luck with the Pantene deep conditioner line that comes in a square jar. To make it even worse it was $10 cheaper at the store 2 doors down.

                  I absolutely live this product! I am a platinum blonde with very fine hair. Because I color my hair it is slightly frizzy. I have tried every product under the sun to try to cintrol the frizz and help with damage. This does not weigh my hair down at all! And it feels and looks great (just used for the first time). It still has body and is manageable. I only used a very small amount.

                  Comments about Chi Keratin Silk Infusion:

                  I have been using the regular Chi for about 5 years.
                  Every time I would go into the Ulta closest to my
                  home they would be out of this product and I would
                  have to drive about 30 minutes to get to another one.
                  One of the hair stylist told me this product would be better for my hair since I am older, I decided to try it. So far I have been satisfied wit it, except I had to buy a large bottle since they had no small one.

                    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.

                                  The silk within the formula helps smooth the hair cuticle to reduce frizzing. To protect hair from the effects of humidity, use in conjunction with a finishing spray such as Magnified Volume Finishing Spray Item #: 2210412.

                                  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 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.

                                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?
