Makes Hair Really Shiny!

By Amanda

from TX

Comments about Chi Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex:

First, a little goes a LONG way! I mean that. I have a ton of hair and if I get too heavy handed with this, my hair will get greasy looking. But if you just use a little bit when straightening with a flat iron or hair dryer, it will make your hair so soft and shiny! I do want to say I have very thick, naturally curly, naturally dry hair so if you have really thin hair, even a little of this may be too much for you. I love it though!

      My hair is platinum blonde/silver and took a lot of bleach to reach this color. My hair is course and basically fried. I've tried every product out there. I can't live without this stuff. It makes my hair so soft and smooth. It's almost a miracle at how awesome my hair looks and feels after using this.

                I have really thick hair which takes a long time to blow dry and to flat iron and/or to style with rollers/ curling iron, which means my hair is exposed to a lot of heat all at once. This product protects my hair and tames it. It never feels gunky or gross. I love, love this product!!!

                  I use this every day for my dry hair/split ends. A small dime sized amount is all you need to make hair look shiny and ends look healthy. It is non greasy and one of my must haves. Great product!

                    How is this different from Chi Keratin Infusion in silver and gold bottle? Do they have same use and benefits for hair. 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.
