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....
Reviewed by 378 customers Finally, something that works on my frizzy, thin hair!
Jen in Chicago from Chicago
I have long-ish, thin, mostly straight hair that always seems to look frizzy even though I've been treating it extremely well for years (no extreme heat or frequent washes, do weekly conditioning treatments). Everything that tames the frizz makes my hair look oily--not good! Tried this based on reviews and it works. I use a lot of it and blow-drying (medium heat) does take a few extra minutes, but the results speak for themselves. A blow-out lasts more than one day, too. Happy with this! Only use this and a heat protectant and my hair looks shiny and healthy!
Great Brazilian blow out
Momo from Florida
I used this to blow out my daughters 4c hair. It got her hair silky and straight with just one pass on 410 degrees . It definitely is worth the money.
BK from DC
It is VERY easy to use too much of this product, and when you do, there is NO turning back. Yikes! This did not play well with the it's a 10 leave-in but I attribute that to user error. I can't imagine putting this on my dry hair as it would seriously weigh it down. As for the smell, I absolutely loathe it... I couldn't believe all the positive reviews for the scent LOL! To each their own :) It did create a nice shine on the healthier areas of my hair but my colored ends still looked like struggle city, which is why I'm rating it 3 stars. Will keep working with it to (hopefully) achieve desired results!
Tracey from Kansas
My hair is thick, wavy and course. This stuff makes my hair so soft and silky. I love it. I like the scent as well...kind of like walking through the men's cologne dept.
Great for curly/wavy thick unruly hair
Sharon P from Middle TN
I'm always looking for products that work well with my hair type. This is great for hair that is on the thick/wavy/curly side with a tendency towards frizzing. It can be heavy so it's probably not for those with thin/fine hair. A little goes a long way.
I put this in towel dried hair. Works well combined with other products to make unruly hair act right.
I loved this product and would buy again
Archi from Texas
I used just a little in my towel dry hair and blow dry after that. I love the smell of it it makes my hair Silky to touch and it feels good.
Love this stuff
Peach from Newyork
I use this after washing hair. It makes my hair soft. It can also make the hair extremely manageable if used after a deep conditioning treatment or hot oil
MandyK from Knoxville, TN
I put this on before blow drying my hair. Makes it smell fantastic and looks shiny!
Not so good
Daniii89 from Houston
This stuff feels great...AT FIRST. And then I started noticing that it made my hair even dryer and unmanageable over time. If you go several days before washing your hair then this is not the oil for you because it has silicones which are very drying. For reference, I have type 2b hair. Some better hair oils to consider instead of this one would be Voir, Macadamia Professional, and Mizani.
The smell is divine
AJ from San Diego CA
Honestly smells like a subtle men's cologne and that's what I love most about it! It does help tame frizz and adds shine of course
this product is expensive but worth every penny
oscar from Nevada
me.. blonde colored hair..has a tendency to be dry and fly away..this tames that and is soft and silky..a little goes a long way..it is expensive but worth every penny
Chewy from Arizona
This product is great
I would buy this product again
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!
