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....

michou from Chicago, IL
I use CHI Silk infusion on my hair with a leave-in conditioner after every hair wash. It seems to improve the healthy clean shine in my hair. I have used it many years, and I like it very much.
I know it can be a pricey product, but I only need a few tiny drops each application. That means it lasts a long time.
So worth it
Alyssa from Washington
This product is expensive, but my hair is shoulder length and I only wash it two or three times a week and only use less than a dime sized amount so a little goes a long way. This has helped with my split ends and the frizziness that I've been experiencing for so many years.
Didn't do much
Marissam from Wisconsin
I thought this would be more of a creamy consistency and was surprised that it's a thick oil. I tried using this to air dry my wavy curly hair and it wasn't great, so I tried it to blow dry my hair straight and it was better for that but also not great. I do like the masculine scent.
Chriss99 from California
I've using this product for years, every time I blow-dry my hair. I love it, leaves my hair so silky.
Diananananan from CA
This serum has a nice smell; it is a little masculine but not overpowering. I put in about a nickel sized amount while my hair was still damp, and if left my hair soft, shiny and lush. I got the 12 oz for under $10 while on sale which was a steal. Although I love it, I don't think I would pay full price so I'm hoping it lasts awhile.
My Healthy curly hair is back
Angelica C from Miami
Highly recommend this elixir !!!
Not for me
Angie from Yay Area
I would say this was a waste of money had I bought it for the full price. But I got it for a third of the price. Still, I don't really care for it. I don't like the scent, and I don't like how thick it is. This bottle could last me a decade but I'm not even using it at all.
Product overpriced and sticky! Wouldnt recommend
Kate from Bergen County, New Jersey
Tried using this product before a blowdry to get "silky" hair instead my hair was Sticky don't notice a difference with or without it..honestly my hair feels better without it I even used a tiny bit so that it doesn't become as sticky and nope. Very disappointed. So that I'm not wasting what I just bought because something overpriced I thought it would be good but I started using it with curly hair instead after my hair is dry and it helps a bit. Can use any oil less than $10 it will work the same prob better.
Love, love, love
Dee from Totowa, NJ
I absolutely love this. A little goes a long way! It smells delicious. I have highlighted hair so I put this on damp hair and re-apply a little bit as it's drying and by the time my hair is fully dry it feels and looks luscious.
Love this stuff!!
gigi from Charlotte NC
I totally love this product. It only takes a little bit so this bottle will last me a really long time. It makes my hair feel wonderful and style better as well.
Grace from Upstate, New York
This stuff has completely changed my hair. I had bleach damaged hair and lots of split ends and this product has made my hair so soft and healthy. I can skip conditioner in the shower and put this product on and my hair is soft all day.
Yes, I would buy this product again
Karen from Kansas City MO
I have fine blonde highlighted hair that tends to dry out in the sun. I put a very small amount (less than dime size) on my hands and rub them together then smooth it on about an inch away from my scalp after blow drying with low heat before I use my straightener and it makes my hair soft and shiny
Great for dry hair!
Isa from IN
Great for dry hair and the smell is so amazing! Leaves hair protected and moisture locked in!
11 years and counting :)
KT from TX
when i was 17 shopping around ulta, i picked this up one day on a whim and NEVER LOOKED BACK. i'm now 28 and on my fourth bottle. it lasts forever. it smells like a sexy man. it makes my dry, brittle, processed hair soft and shiny.
i have thick waist-length hair. i run a quarter sized amount through damp hair and braid. i wake up with my hair looking beautiful, not matter the season.
it's on the expensive side but with every penny. i hope this never gets discontinued bc i don't know if i could live without it.
You need this!!!
Worth the price a little goes a long way from Palm Desert, CA
I have bleached my hair so many times so my hair was so dry and fragile and this product really fixed my hair it's so soft and shiny all I want to do is touch and play with my hair now
Miracle in a bottle
Kristen from Roanoke, VA
My hair feels amazingly smooth and silky every time I use this. Probably my favorite hair product ever!
Tiffany from California
It smells so good!!! That's why I end up putting way too much! Which is very easy to do! A little goes a long way so be careful, but it leaves your hair so soft, shiny and manageable! Love it!!! Normally wouldn't purchase because it is way too expensive but it was on sale for half off and I'm so happy I got it!
Makes my hair feel like new
Rhiannon19 from Lexington park, MD
I've been bleaching my hair for the past 2-3 years. I've tried so many miracle products and leave in treatments, but I think this one may be one of the best. It makes your hair so silky and smells really good. The only bad thing is the oily residue it leaves on my hands, but it's nothing a good hand washing won't take care of! If you have bleached or colored hair this won't give it a brassy look or stain your hair.
I love it!!
Angelica from Detroit
This is the best silk ever for hair I love how it leaves your hair and how it smells🥺!!❤️
Where have you been all my life
GomezMich from California
OH MY GOD... this is the best thing ever for your hair, I was 50/50 should I buy it or not but all those good reviews gave me that extra push I need it and end up buying the big bottle at a really ... really good price thank you Ulta for such good deals people can't just missed, anyways to the point my hair was super dry and frizzy because I have been bleaching my hair for over 2 yrs I have platinum blonde and nothing seemed to help for the damaged frizzy looking and feeling of my hair til I came across this product and I honestly don't see myself without it anymore I am willing to pay full price because this is gold to my hair.
Saves My Hair
Taylor from Minnesota
Thanks to so many stellar reviews, I bought this from Ulta Beauty. So glad that all you reviewers were there to tell me of your experiences so that I felt comfortable enough to buy it! I absolutely love Chi Silk Infusion. My hair literally looks like hay if I don't do a hair mask every time I take a bath/shower. And even then the hair mask hardly gets me through until next time I bathe. Even after a hair cut I have problems. Using this every time my hair starts looking hay-like really helps. It is nicer than other, less expensive hair oils I have tried in the past because my hair starts looking really greasy with more than one use between showers. With Chi Silk Infusion, I can do multiple applications to keep my hair looking good without the greasy effect. I am practically hoarding this stuff now. If you have some extra cash and similar issues to me, I highly recommend trying it.
Chels from Birmingham
You only need a small amount no matter how much hair you have it leaves your hair so smooth and silky
Ana from SF
This feels great on my fine hair but I can't stand the smell. The smell is strong and reminds me of cologne. I waited too long so I can't return it and have to get used to it.
