Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE AT FIRST USE! : )
This product was recommended to me by a long time ago by one of my closest friends. She raved about how amazing it works, but I remained hesitant knowing how difficult it is so find something for my hair that helps it to retain it's moisture while protecting it from the heat without weighing it down. Also her hair type is a relaxed 3A while mine is a relaxed 4b/c. I use it on wet hair, (Just after my deep condition) and apply a very generous amount. Regardless how much I use, this product NEVER weighs my hair down. I don't own anything else that even remotely compares.
After applying, I detangle my hair combing it gently with a wide toothed comb. I blow dry my hair as straight as I can get it, apply another staple product of mine (the Loma Pearatin Fortifying Repairative Serum) and flat iron my hair with my Sedu Revoloution (the most amazing flat iron ever). These products combined have become my secret sauce for light, flowy and shiny hair. With this combination, I was able to grow my hair to APL. If I could only keep one, however, it would be the Chi Silk Infusion. Take it from me, this STUFF ROCKS! ☺. My one bottle lasted me almost a year with weekly washes. Get it and use it one WET HAIR and you won't regret it!!!
(This product on dry hair for me makes it greasy and weighs my hair down. So wet hair for similar hair types Lol)
Most Helpful Critical Review Terrible New Formula
I used to adore this product. I have been using it religiously for about 6 years, but they recently changed the formula and it's terrible. The old formula was Gold hued, smelled delicious, and absorbed into the hair and smoothed like a dream. This new formulation is clear, smells moldy almost, and just coats the hair in grease. I have not changed my hair routine so it's certainly not interacting with any other products (it's the only styling product I use, actually). I am really really disappointed because this used to be my holy grail for tackling my curls, and I didn't mind spending $40 a bottle. Now it's useless and I've read a lot of reviews by people who are just as disappointed as me. I definitely won't recommend this product to anyone anymore. I just really hope I can find a suitable replacement....

Perfect hair days

My hair has been giving me some trouble, it was greasy and frizzy and just looked dull every day. I work in a clean room and it requires me to have my hair in a hair net and pony tail every day. As you can imagine that isn't great for my hair! I recently started using a nickel sized amount of this product in my shoulder length hair and after 6 hours of being hot in a hair net all day i took my hair out of it's clip and i walked out of the lab looking like i just went to the salon! I will definitely be buying this again when I run out.
It works well, but the smell!!!
Penny from Las Vegas, NV
I do like this product, but I wish they would make it unscented. That is why I took off stars. It smells like a really strong, bad men's cologne!
Julia from Alabama
I will never stop buying this!!! Enough said.
S from Burbank
I don't know what crazy sorcery is in this stuff but voy does it make miracles happen! I put this on my hair after I got out the shower when it was slightly still wet. 2 days later I went to disneyland and got on splash mountain and wet all my hair which I had straightened. Normally after drenching my hair in splash mountain water thats fullllll of bleach, it always makes my hair super frizzy and full of knots. But since I put this CHI stuff before hand, my hair was AMAZINGLY SOFT WITH NO FRIZZ WHATSOEVER. No knots!!!! My hair was still looking so great!! I know it's this CHI stuff because it's the only thing I had put on my hair. I'm so happy with it.

Tight frizzy chemo curls on the bottom half of my head. Stick straight hair on the top. I've tried so many leave in products with so so results. This one is a game changer for me. It tames and defines my curls and leaves my hair soft and shiny. I couldn't ask more from a hair product. Very happy with the consistent results.
Best hair oil!
tiffanyg90 from California
I love this stuff! I've used it before but it was just so expensive, but now I buy it every time it goes on sale at Ulta and a little goes such a long way that I haven't bought it since the last time it went for half off and I still have some left! I don't want to live without it! I know it's bad, but I heat style my hair almost every day and this helps to prevent most of the damage (I use other heat products but I swap those out often) this product stays in my routine consistently! it really helps to prevent a lot of split ends as well! The cherry on top it that it smells amazing too!! chi could make this a candle and a whole fragrance line and I would buy it!
shoppingaround from CA
I used to have 1a type hair which is becoming more like 1b as I get older (35): dry at the ends, frizzy midshaft. Biosilk didn't do anything for me so I got this "leave jn" treatment, only to find out it looks just like biosilk and behaves like biosilk, which is concentrated and heavy, and leaves my hair dry the moment the strand becomes dry. I tried variations of dry hair, towel dried, and damp. Air dry and heated styling. I still can't figure it out. It gets heavy but my hair is still dry. Then my 2nd day hair is a greasy mess.

I have very dry hait
Ew the scent!
DB from Ohio
Smells like thick, heavy perfume. So if that's a scent you enjoy then definitely get this product because the quality is great. It does make hair smoother and silkier but for me the smell is migraine inducing. Bummer
Sun from Brooklyn, NY
I got a ashy balayage a few months ago on my darkkk brown hair and purple shampoo fairly often. This has been the only product that I can feel and see a difference in my hair immediately after use. It feels super soft and silky, and makes brushing and styling easier. Highly recommend

I use it everyday, style or just so hair will not tangle
life saver for damaged hair
Abigail from Idaho
I work in a dry dirty factory and my hair was looking Horrible! Even on my days off when I would do my hair routine, it was so damaged to the point where I thought about cutting a bit off. A wonderful gal at ulta recommended this and, this is magic in a bottle and has saved my hair ❤ I've tried other oils which weigh my hair down and make it greasy, just a tiny amount of this stuff goes a long way.
Stacie from USA
My hair is extremely dry and damaged after going blonde. This product has definitely saved it. I can't believe the difference after putting it in my hair. I can't recommend this enough. It makes my fried hair look normal.
Love love it
Love my books from Ohio
Love the product delivery was quick
Smells good. Too much build up.
Jaclyn from Chicago
I used this twice, with directions on the bottle. It left the most build up in my hair both times. The second time I used it, I made extra sure to rinse it out longer, and my hair felt disgusting and heavy. I had to use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of the build up. I have thick, wavy hair for reference. I had someone use this on me at the salon, and followed up with a blow out so MAYBE it's only best if you're going to blowdry/style your hair instead of air drying. No idea. Returning this and the shampoo for sure.
CB from Boston
For all of my life I've had long, thick, dirty blonde hair. I definitely struggled with dry ends, but they were never a massive problem. Half way through high school I started highlighting my hair. This virtually had 0 effect on my hair, it stayed long and thick! But then during my senior year of college I realized a lot of my hair was falling out and the hair I did have left was extremely thin and damaged. To this day I'm not sure if I experienced a health issue or if maybe I was under a lot of stress- who knows, maybe my hairdresser went a little overboard with the bleach! It could have been a number of things. I eventually purchased this product and it really gave me my confidence back. Even in the earlier stages of the road to hair recovery this product made my hair LOOK and FEEL like it was full and healthy. I have now been using this product for 1 year (I apply this on my damp ends and mids after I wash my hair… only wash my hair every 3-4 days) and wow… the transformation is amazing. I have to admit I think the frequent hair cuts helped enormously, but this product can't go unnamed. It smells great and does not weigh my hair down (I don't bring this anywhere near my root because it would definitely look greasy). My one complaint is that the bottle needs work- Everytime I travel this bottle leaks everywhere, I literally have to double plastic bag it anytime I bring it anywhere. I hate traveling without it because it has become a hair staple for me, but I also hate traveling with it because it makes a HUGE mess.
Love this product use it everyday
Jill from NY
Put a dime size amount on hand and rub hands together apply to just washed hair and then dry hair
Love it !!

Leaves your hair very smooth and silky !!!
This Stuff is Amazing
GlamGirlLuxe from TX
Seriously. After I use the Kenra Nourishing Masque, I put this on when my hair is 80% dry before blow-drying and it has made my dry and damaged hair so much more soft and manageable (and easier to blow-dry). You don't need much at all. I had used this stuff back when I was 14 and then revisited it again when I looked back at old pictures and saw how shiny my hair used to be. I love this stuff, worth every penny. :)
I keep it at my work desk, in my handbag
jo from Hawaii
I use this product everyday.................my hair stylist uses it too
I would buy this again.
Kiki from MA
I'll keep buying. I'm in love
Smells so good
Tina from Minnesota
Love this stuff. I have used silk infusion for years. It is the best multipurpose hair product you can invest in. Blow dry serum for wet hair, heat protectant, smoothing for dry hair and it smells soooo good!
BEST leave in serum I have ever used!
ACJ from Calabasas, CA
I have used so, so many leave in serums and this CHI is my fav. I do love Verb Ghost oil and Moroccan Oil light as well...but this CHI really seems to repair hair and not just add artificial shine. My hair is the finest hair you can imagine, and when not overused, it does not weigh my hair down or make it greasy. I even use it before bed and in the morning, my hair is smooth and looks healthy.
would buy again
