This product is great if you have dry, over-processed hair.
You only need to apply about 1 tiny blob, rub in your hands and apply from midway length of the hair to the ends. Do not put on the scalp as this will block the pores, and cause greasy/oily hair.
Makes hair shiny, frizz free and soft and gives Loreal adverts a run for their money!
Cheap too from folica.com if you buy bulk :)
I want to love it. I love the smell. Not the effect. Makes my hair shiny but does nothing for frizz or flyaways and may even make them worse. I have generally used it on dry hair before or after styling.
I found this to be an okay product to combat frizz and dryness. It didn't work any miracles on my dry, course, wavy, frizz-prone hair. I used the whole bottle and then moved on to find something better. For me it ranked in the same vicinity as a drug-store product for serums.
I've been using this product for years and I love it. I put a small pea-size amount on my damp hair and I just let it dry. It doesn't let my hair get frizzy plus it smells wonderful. It leaves my hair feeling very soft and manageable.
The people saying this product is full of alcohol have no idea what they are talking about. This product, like most serums, is >90% silicones. Despite the fact that it is the third ingredient listed, the amount of alcohol here is very small and the only reason its there is because it is the carrier for the ethyl ester of hydrolyzed silk (raw ingredient: RITA Promois-A).
That said, this product *can* dry your hair out if you use it on dry hair. Cyclomethicone is a volatile silicone which evaporates, but Dimethoconol is a heavy weight silicone gum which is difficult to remove and creates a waterproof barrier. Thus if you apply this to dry hair it will look shiny but its really keeping the moisture out, it is better to apply it to damp hair which locks moisture in.
If you think your hair has silicone buildup and your shampoo isn't removing it all, do a hot oil treatment.. that will remove all silicone without a doubt.
Years ago a hairstylist used this on me and I've stuck with it every since. As I read in one review, you do have to be careful you don't pour too much out of the bottle. I use it when my hair is dry and I find it smooth out frizzies on my shoulder length hair. Also, it adds shine to processed hair. Another reviewer said she used it on wet hair before she styles it. That makes sense, but I tried it, but could feel a slightly sticky residue, so I prefer on dried hair.
Great - but again, be careful ....NOT TOO MUCH!
I bought this randomly. I had seen it many times, but never thought to grab it. Then one day I found a small version on sale. I waited to use it, but since I finally did I have been so happy with it. This has a wonderful scent and not a typical hair product smell. This feels truly silky. I was told by my stylist to use a moisturizing serum on my ends every other day or when I just notice my ends are dry. I have been using this to do that and my hair has been looking amazing. My stylist even commented that even after a 7 week no cut time my hair looks really good and did not have much damage. That is a really important thing to me being I have long hair that I am actually trying to grow out even more. The only problem is the bottle. This pours out very quickly and there have been a few times that I have overdone it and looked really greasy. I found it is better to use a needle to poke a hole in the seal so I can better control how much comes out. This is truly one of those products where less is more. Great product and when I do run out I will definitely be repurchasing.
This is very over hyped in my opinion. I have very sleak, smooth hair, so it easily gets greasy if I put in something like this, so maybe it is better for superdry hair?
Anyway... I would not recommend this product. The main ingredients is alcohol and silicone, which is, as you may know, not good for the hair over a longer period of time. Instead I use jojoba oil on the ends, which works wonders for splitt ends and dry hair =)
I have been using this product for 6+ years and I can't live without it!
I have long, thick indian hair and the biosilk silk therapy is wonderful for taming it. It also smells wonderful and is great for using with any other product for a smooth and polished finish. If I am blow drying my hair I usually apply some silk therapy then some mousse and it makes for a nice result as the silk therapy does not dry out or tangle the hair while other products may do so.
I'm a BioSilk believer. My hair is dry and somewhat course from years of coloring, but thanks to this stuff, you'd never know!
The smell is pleasant, but light, and I like that I can use this product in conjunction with others, such as a curl creme or one of those sprays that protects hair from heat processing. I never use it on dry hair, but when I use it on wet hair, I am able to diffuse, straighten or air-dry, and all look gorgeous.
Despite all the squealing and squawking about this product, I found it to be one of the rare products that is worth the steep pricetag. Not only does it leave my long, wavy hair shiny as glass and soft, but that $40 12-oz bottle lasts me six months, sometimes longer!
