Review: BioSilk Silk Therapy
The scent: A chemical floral scent. Straight from the bottle I can smell the scent of rubbing alcohol.
Application: I prefer to wash my hair prior to using this product. I have tried it on dry hair but personally, I find it works best with wet hair. I use roughly a dime-size amount, rub it between my hands and start applying it on the hair ends and work my way up to the roots.
Packaging: Comes in a plastic bottle and has a press-to-open lid dispenser.
What it claims: "BioSilk Silk Therapy is a weightless, leave-in silk replenishing and reconstructing treatment to repair, smooth and protect all hair types."
Thoughts / Results:
Personally, I love this product. I've been switching back and forth with my LUSH Revive and Balance hair conditioner. The alternating use of both products is working so well with my hair. I don't have frizzy or dry end issues since switching back to using this serum. However, in the past I have experienced a point where my hair got used to this product and it didn't work as well. But after I stopped using it for a good year or so, I jumped back on the wagon and it's now working so well with my hair. I don't feel the split or dry ends. My hair doesn't annoyingly get into knots at the ends.
I definitely feel that this product is lightweight. It doesn't way down my hair like the LUSH R and B hair conditioner does, when I use too much of it. My hair feels smooth and soft, and it leaves a nice healthy shine.
This product does have a scent to it as indicated in the ingredients, the manufacturer added perfume in the product. Personally, I don't mind the product but others who are sensitive to scents may find it strong. However the smell does evaporate over 2 to 3 hours.
Cost: $49.50 CAD for 12 fl oz or 350 mL @Grand Treasures (Can be found in Canadian Costco - ~$29.95 for 250mL)
