      Love this product! ! Like many have said it seems expensive but you only use a small amount, otherwise your hair will get super greasy. My hair was super damaged from all of the dying but this product has really help restore it's beauty.

                            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.

                                I live in a humid climate. Which product would work best for my graying, coarse, semi-curly, color treated hair?...Chi silk infusion or Keratin Silk infusion.

                                Also, what non-aerosol product would hold my hair against humid conditions.

                                Thanks! I love Chi products

                                  Keratin Silk Infusion works best when applied to damp, towel-dried hair. If applied to dry hair, do so sparingly to prevent over-application.

                                  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.

                                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.

                                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?

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.

                                  Please note that this product is not a shampoo; it is a hair treatment to be applied on towel-dried hair after shampooing and conditioning. It helps to reconstruct dry, damaged hair, but it will not change your curly hair type.

                                  This product, unlike CHI Silk Infusion, contains natural keratin to rebuild the hair's cuticle. This product is ideal for dry, damaged hair. It can certainly be used every other day; frequency of use depends on the severity of damage. Neither CHI Keratin Silk Infusion nor CHI Silk Infusion cause buildup.

                                  For best results, apply after every time you wash your hair. Apply a small amount to damp, towel-dried hair before styling.
