Product Review: CHI Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex

I don't normally flat iron my hair. So best believe I took the time out to do lots of research for the best heat protectants, especially for my fine-natural hair. So I came across this to use after blow-drying and after styling. Let's see how it pans out!

My Experience:

When my hair was completely washed and completed dried, I added a small amount (dime size) to my hair. I did "praying hands" to make sure the Chi was infused in my hair.

After my hair was flat ironed, I added a tiny bit of Chi on my hair doing "praying hands" again.

My Thoughts:

Other than the ingredients that really took 5+ websites to research them, I will say that this is an excellent product to use when straighten your hair. This will make your hair very silky without it weighing down your hair.

I absolutely love it, even though it was about $14! However, it does not take much with this product for use. Also, I don't flat iron my hair often so this product will definitely last a long time.

I will say that after you are done with your flat ironed hair to use a really good clarifying shampoo or natural cleanser to really clean the silicones out of your hair for future styling. Could take more than one shampoo to do so.

Natural hair says: it is best to know your hair before purchasing products without researching it. Make sure you learn your hair, check the product label, and read on reviews to determine if the product is worth purchasing. Never purchase on a whim.
