This makes my hair soft & shiny! I actually don't mind the smell either. It's not cheap but a little goes a long way.
I have biracial hair and its kind of hard to find hair products that actually work for my hair. I bought this because I heard some good things about it and decided to give it a try. The first time I used it I didn't like it. My hair felt greasy almost when I flat ironed it. Thing WAS I was using another hair product, a hair spray...I went ahead and didn't use the spray the second time using chi. AND IT WAS THE SPRAY ! So I was very happy because I was disappointed. I would most definitely buy CHI AGAIN !
Used this product a few years ago and absolutly loved it! I switched to a different oil and really liked it but noticed my hair doesn't look as shiny as it use to. Why I left chi to go to others I don't know! This leaves my fine hair soft, sleek, and shiny! If I could change one thing about it it would be the packaging. Very hard to get only a little out of the bottle and the cap gets oily with product. But besides that....AMAZING! I rub a dime size amount in my hands and smooth throughout hair from mid shaft down. I let it absorb for a couple minutes then comb and blow dry hair. My hair is super soft and sleek with no frizzies but not weighed down and no buildup. And remember....I have FINE hair! Some oils I've used actually hold my style in place. Not a fan of that. This serum let's my hair flow freely with no sticky holding residue. Will forever have a supply of this!
I LOVE this product!! It makes my hair feel so smooth and really soft.It has a nice smell.I use it as a heat protectant and let me just say how much i love the way my hair feels after i use a flat iorn! glossy smooth soft. I wish it wasnt so expensive but i dont mind cause a lottle goes a long way.
I happen to like the smell of this product. What it does for my fine, but thick processed hair is wonderful. I've been using it for over two years now. It's an interesting product. Use too much, and you're a grease ball. Use too little, and there's no effect.
I take about a dime size in my palms, and rub it through my wet hair before I blow dry it. If I didn't do this, my hair would be lackluster, have less shine, show split ends and be flat. I also feel it protects my hair from the heat processing.
I try to keep it away from my roots or my hair will appear more greasy, too. Should I have poured a little too much into my hands, and it's still on my palms, I'll just rub the excess onto my arms. I enjoy the smell, and it evaporates quickly.
At nighttime, if my hair seems on the drier side, I'll take a small amount, less than a dime size, and do the same thing. I'll find that this volumizes my hair and seems to pouf it up. In the morning, my hair is not greasy at all, but it isn't dry, and I can still get another day out of it without washing it. That's important because too much washing will eventually strip the color and that's not something I need.
I buy the large bottle, and that's rather unwieldy, so I've taken some used 2 ounce containers that I've had from former products and poured it into them instead. Much easier to control the amount from a smaller container, I can tote them in my makeup bag, if necessary, and I can also store one of these on my vanity.
Definitely worth it to buy the large size versus the small. It will last you a year, and if you break that down, it's pennies a day for a product that makes your hair look good. You're really putting so little into your locks at one time it doesn't weigh your hair down at all. Chi Silk Infusion just gives you shine and manageability. A great Farouk product I'm stuck on.
Wow... well I was thinking of buying this, until I checked the ingredient list. This 'professional' and very expensive item is packed full with 'cones' - silicone oils. Absolutely unbelievable. Always read the ingredient lists and make informed decisions.
The best shampoo and conditioner so far. I used Dove and Herbal Ess. before and found that my hair was oily after a day. I looked for a sulfate free shampoo and came across CHI. Not only does it smell great it leaves my hair smooth, shiny, and less freezy. A must try!!!
Here's the deal, I packed this away for trip once and it leaked everywhere and the smell has haunted me so badly I left this product in the drawer for years. After running out of hair serums and my repeatedly dyed hair was showing the consequences. Dry, brittle, just plain nasty. I figured to use a little every night for the tips raking the rest into the full length of my hair. After three days my hair was restored back to its former glory. My husband can't resist running his fingers through my hair since it is tangle free and super soft now.
The only con is that I have the large industrial size bottle and residue tends to leak. I wish it somehow came in a spray form. Also, if you use too much than a dime sized amount (even on my mid back hair) your hair will be greasy like you left in too much conditioner. Use only a little everyday on your tips and you will see almost instant results.
Also, this is very fast absorbing for the skin and works to the same effect. I've since abandoned my heavy body butters and slap this on the skin and it dries in literally 5 seconds. I may never get over the distinct smell, but I can't preach this enough as my favorite hair serum. It is wonderful and my HG after all these years of relying on hair masks to save my hair.
This is one of my top favorite silk treatments by far. I love how it smells, how ot feels when i run my hands through it and the shine it gives my long haor. Another thing i love about this product is that it helps with frizz anr split ends. even after your done flat ironing- you can still see your split ends, and this silk infusion really helps diminish the look. Another really important thing to me while using a silk treatment- is how it will make my hair feel the following day. I have tried some that work great the same day but the following day, you notive that your hair is weighed down and looks terribly greasy. This product looks just as good the next day- still smells wonderful and doesnt leave my hair a greasy mess. The last thing I love about this product is it can also be used as a moisturizer for dry hands. What I usually do is pour a quarter size amount in my hand, rub my hands together- and then starting from the bottom- adding it to the layers of my hair. Its a tad pricey- but its so worth the money.
beautiful makes your hair have volume and bouncy
