    Comments about Chi Keratin Reconstructing Shampoo:

    Love this shampoo! It's the best. I have very very long hair and it usually takes a lot to wash my hair but I only had to use a quarter size amount of this product. Doesn't leave my hair oily. So super soft. I'll be buying more .

                            Due to compliance purposes, there is a lifespan listed on the back of the bottle. It would be located inside a jar-shaped icon. For example: 12M stands for 12 months.
                            This does not mean the product cannot be used for only 12 months; shampoos and conditioners can last longer than that. Please let us know if you have any difficulty locating this info. :-)

                          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!

                            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.

                          I have been using Chi Argan oil plus moringa oil in hopes of helping my hair grow faster. I burned my hair recently and had to get a good amount of it cut off and am wanting it to grow. Will the chi keratin products help my hair grow faster and look more healthy?

                            CHI Keratin products help to strengthen weakened, damaged hair and make hair more resistant to breakage, so they are a great choice for you based on your needs!
