    Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

    I have very curly, but very fine, hair. I needed something other than just Argon Oil to minimize breakage. My stylist suggested I look for a wheat protein product. I love this because I put it on immediately upon getting out of the shower. My hair is shinier and smoother. I hope that it will ease the breakage over time.

          Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

          This product on its own would only get about a 3. But when I use it after applying my Macademia Professional Nourishing Oil, they both get a 5. Alone, they each provide shine. The oil more so. After using both products my hair is so glossy! Not greasy or greasy looking. If you are getting a greasy look, you are using too much product. My hair is shoulder length. I apply about a nickel size of oil (mid-shaft to ends). Concentrate on ends. Comb through. Wait a few minutes and add the same amount (same location) of the silk infusion. Again comb through.

          The silk infusion gives you a silky, sexy feel with shine. Allows your comb to slide through most split ends. Great for detangling.

            Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

            For me, this leave-in conditioner has been a godsend. No more endless rinsing of slime in the shower. Just towel blot your hair and rub a coin-size amount between your hands, then gently work it through hair, ends first. A little goes a l-o-n-g way, which means the apparently high price tag is worth every penny. My hair is soft and smooth, and I love the way it looks and smells.

                    Two males here, I have very temperamental skin from eczema and my hair always has been dry. My husband also has dry short curly hair. We both use this daily! I use this all over my body because this is the first product I could find that I can use in my hair and on my body to stop my eczema patches and dry skin all over that does not make me oily feeling like lotions, and leaves my skin moist, fresh smelling, and keeps me from getting sun blotches all over. My husband uses it to help manage his dry hair every morning before work so he can style it and it looks fantastic! Going on 3rd bottle.

Is there a difference or is it Chi Keratin is same just has added Keratin? Trying to decide which to buy, would get both however pricey. Mainly want for strengthening hair and protect from regular flat iron use. Thank you!

                        The BioSilk Silk Therapy would help to keep your hair from breaking. Silk is a protein that adds moisture and shine:

                        The new CHI Silk Infusion is a clear serum. The yellow was removed from the current formula, and that is why it is no longer yellow when it comes out of the bottle. The performance is still the same.

                        A:

                        Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex can be used alone as a leave-in treatment. CHI Silk Infusion is formulated to provide silk and smoothness to a style, and it can be used on coarse and/or color treated hair. CHI Silk Infusion can be used on damp hair after a shampoo and/or dry hair after the desired style is achieved.
