Chi Silk Infusion Review

October 21, 2009

Name: Chi Silk Infusion

Price: $9 for 2 oz., 15 for 6oz.

Rating: 5 out of 5

Product Promise: CHI Transformation System Silk Infusion helps strengthen your hair, providing incredible softness, manageability and shine without any build-up.

The Review: I can’t help but love this product. I’ll admit that I mostly used this when I was still relaxed, but I found a bunch of new ways to use it when I started transitioning. First, if your one of those people who can’t stand fruity smells, you’re in luck. This hair product has a “clean” scent that is very tolerable. It goes on light with very little buildup, but it’s highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. It’s a serum and the consistency isn’t as thick as most, but it does feel a little too sticky at times which can be annoying to some.

I think it works best with heat. Every single time I used it to blow dry or flat iron, my hair felt soft and had tons of shine. The look was always sleek with killer movement. I can’t wait to finish my bottle of Sabino Moisture Block so I can return to my beloved Chi! Since I started transitioning, I found another way to use Silk Infusion on my hair when it’s wet. I’ll usually place a dime size amount on wet hair and let it airdry into a bun. The outcome is nothing but soft hair again, and it cuts down on my frizzy factor. I’ve tried a lot of serums since I started my hair journey and I can’t think of another in my arsenal, outside of Keracare’s Silken Seal, that makes me feel this way.

My recommendation is to try it, try it, try it. If you’re worried about the price, don’t be. My first 2 oz bottle lasted me for almost a year. No joke!

I’ve wanted to try CHI for he longest, but it has so much ‘cones in it, that I’ve wanted to stay away from it. My hairstylist told me that silicones make my hair “look” healthy, but in actuality, it just dries it out:-(

chritina everyone has an opinion about something. i personally use this product everyday and my hair is so soft and silky. i deep condition my hair twice a week because i workout every day and the salt from your w/outs needs to be rinsed. i think that personally alot of stylist out there give misinfo. about your hair alot of them are scissor happy and bald and they cover their hair with weaves. why is that? my hair is far from dry. i use a mixture of leave in conditioner/my favorite hair oil in a sprayer then i finish it off with the chi silk elements and comb out from end to root and sit under a hair dryer on low/medium setting when dry i use a bevel iron on a low to medium heat and wooooowwwwww wonderful . CHI SILK ELEMENT IS A WONDERFUL PRODUCT TO ADD TO YOUR REGIMEN JUST DEEP CONDITION ONCE A WEEK AND MOISTURIZE TWICE ADAY GOOD LUCK.

I just bought this product yesterday from ulta. I used it today and i absolutely love the way my hair looks and feels. Mind you, i have thick, wavy/curly hair and it works great! But i was just wondering, how many times a week should you apply it to hair? Would ot be everytime you wash your hair or would it be like once or twice a week since theres a lot of proteins in it?
