      Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

      It's been several years since my stylist introduced me to Bio-Silk. As with most product junkies...I used it for a bottle or two and moved on to something else. I happened to stumble across it again....and feel in love again. I have wavy frizz prone hair that's very thick and just a small amount makes it very soft and manageable.

        Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

        I have major problems with split ends. I haven't found anything that prevents them, but this hides them better than any other product I've tried. It also smooths my frizz better than anything else, and I like not having to use a blow dryer or straightening iron on my hair.

              I'm AA. My hair stylist used this on my hair. I couldn't believe how shiny and soft my hair was. I had been using Mizani but my hair was still dry and not shiny. I noticed when I used more to get the shiny smooth look. My hair was greasy and needed washing. Not so eith biosilk. I use a dime size every other day and my hair is never greasy. Very shiny and soft. I love this stuff. Expensive but worth it.

              Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

              Pour a little pea size puddle in the palm of your hand. Rub this over four fingers, work into hair. Learn not to use too much, or you'll
              feel like an oil slick duck. Not greasy to your touch, this is silk!! Use this correctly, and damage looks like healthy hair. It works for me. I do not use argan oil or other oils for hair. I have naturally oily skin, scalp, and long damaged hair.
              Yet I get along with THIS product!

                  Comments about Biosilk Silk Therapy Original:

                  It gives a beautiful shine and feels silky on healthy hair. Also, the smell is a bit too strong, perfumey. It's a respectable product but on damaged hair, it does not do much especially for the price.

                        Because silk naturally contains 17 of the 19 same amino acids found in your hair, this serum actually reconstructs damaged hair as well as protects from styling damage.

                        We recommend you trying the new Tea Tree line, which has Tea Tree, Peppermint and chamomile in it to soothe and refresh the scalp. It is specially formulated to treat a multitude of scalp problems, including dry and itchy scalp. Remember when using it that the shampoo should sit on the scalp for 3-5 minutes before rinsing and applying conditioner. If you would like to try a serum as well, there is one in the Tea Tree line that will promote healthy shiny hair!
