Love this stuff. It makes my hair less frizzy and my hair doesn't get tangled at the end of the day. Also makes my ends feel less dried out. I put a dime size amount in my hand and rub my hands together to warm it up. Then I apply from the ends up to about my ears. I avoid applying too close to the scalp because frankly, the scalp doesn't need it and I don't want the top of my head to look like a grease-ball. Don't need too much cos otherwise hair looks greasy.
Very aptly named. Feels like silk on my hands and you only need a few drops.
The smell is nice, but I am thankful it's light and doesn't stay with you.
Not greasy or oily.
The name says it all ;p
I've tried lots of shine serums from the most expensive to drug store brands and I always come back to Silk Drops. I have medium fine wavy hair that I usually blow dry straight. Other products tend to make my hair look greasy by the end of the day but this one makes my hair feel nice and soft without weighing my hair down at all. I also like that when I choose to wear my hair curly it doesn't make my hair look wet or crunchy looking even after I diffuse it like other products can. As all "cone" products do this stuff will build up after a while and I've found that taking a few days off periodically to wash the product build up out helps a lot.
Love this stuff -- works great at glossing the hair and taming frizzies, and it smells much better than the Chi stuff that I bought (which smelled industrial.) Plus I love the sample size bottle for travel - 99 cents!
It works wonders but smells like an old curling iron with caked on hair spray. I still love it.
In a nutshell, if you love Farouk's Biosilk Silk Therapy, but hate the price tag, you'll love this stuff. IMO it smells really close to Biosilk and leaves my hair just as shiny and soft.
Just a heads up for anyone that hasn't used either product before, you'll want to use only a small amount (and preferably start with the tips of your hair first) otherwise it'll feel and look too greasy.
This stuff rocks! My fine bleached hair needs as much silicone as I can offer, and even if I use my Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum before airdrying, I need another dose of a glossing serum to tame down frizziness. Enter Ion Silk Drops. I bought a 15mL/0.5 oz bottle at my local Sally's Beauty Supply to keep at my desk, and I apply two or three drops when my hair is fully dry. (I leave for work with damp hair, as I'm trying to minimize the damage to my poor shoulder-length hair after all the double-process bleaching.)
The scent is fabulous, not cloying or overpowering, and I love that the formula includes panthenol (vit. B5) and silk extract. Silk Drops never weighs my hair down, and my hair is extremely fine though damaged. My little bottle should last me for awhile, but I'll definitely repurchase when I use it up.

Works great on any hair, made mine especially soft when my hair was very damaged from over-dying, smells nice, and feels great when used on skin too. When you use a little bit, it doesn't weigh your hair down, but don't accidentally use too much.
I've gone through several bottles of this and I will continue to buy it. The smell is great. I only use one application when my hair is wet and it lasts through blow drying and ironing. It doesn't leave my hair greasy and it's not too heavy even though my hair is thick, dry and on the coarse side. It keeps frizz at bay and leaves my hair soft and shiny. I also use it on dry hair when I want to restyle with my blow dryer and iron and it does a great job. The price is very reasonable too. EDIT**I have stopped using this product because I don't like oily serums anymore. Plus, the formulation has changed, it smells different (not as good) and SD alcohol has been added.
Ion Silk Drops is a "serum for normal or dry hair". I have fine, thick, straight hair that gets weighed down by many products. A small drop of Silk Drops detangles & conditions wet or dry hair without leaving it greasy. (I imagine if you use too much your hair will look flat & dirty!) I considered using a flat iron as my hair, especially the new hair growth, gets frizzy in humid weather. This product smooths hair & gives it incredible shine. Why damage your hair with a flat iron if this product will work for you! My hair has volume with this product. I consider this product a treatment & a styling product.
