Want silky shiny locks? Chi Silk Infusion does the trick for African American hair.

All hair types are vulnerable to heat damage, but African American hair tends to be more fragile to the effects of excessive heat, especially when it's not conditioned correctly. If you're like me, you're more concerned with your hair's overall health and condition rather than just a great looking style.

I have relaxed, 4B (I think?) hair. Several months ago, I finally decided to order and try Chi Silk Infusion hair serum after watching a video on black hair care (see it here). Her hair came out great compared to the very beginning, right??

So anyway, I bought the Chi Silk Infusion online. I didn't follow sister Ateyaaa's regimen (from the video) to the tee—because I have my own. First I wash and condition (I really take my time with it, no pulling or manipulating over my head), then add leave in conditioner (I like Aphogee or the leave-in, strengthening conditioner that comes with Optimum relaxers).

My hair came out OK with this regimen before I purchased the Chi serum, but it wasn't ON POINT like I knew it could be. Something was missing from the recipe….

So finally I got my Chi Silk Infusion serum in the mail. I think I washed my hair that very day to see how it works.

After adding my leave in conditioner, I put a dab of the Chi in the middle of my palm, just as described in that video earlier. I rubbed that little bit of Chi through my hair and then proceeded with my roller set (yes, I do my hair Dominican-style).

I lovveeeeeee how soft and silky my hair came out (and still comes out) after flat ironing with the Chi Silk Infusion in my hair. It's truly amazing. I could not stop looking at myself in the mirror! I must have run my fingers through my hair 20 times, just like a commercial lol. I get compliments constantly about how healthy and silky my hair looks. You can see the quality here:

So my overall review of Chi Silk Infusion hair serum is *very* positive. 5 diamond studs. Chi is the same company that makes Chi flat irons. I personally use another high quality brand flat iron, but I imagine the Chi version is even better.

Have you tried Chi Silk Infusion hair serum yet? Let me know what you thought of it.

    I love the shiny look of that product. Is this safe if using it on blonde? Or do you have something for the blondes?

    That is an impressive shine there. A thought just popped into my head though - would this work on wigs as well? I have a couple of wigs lying around and I'd want them to be that shiny if possible.

    I love this product and my hair is natural. This makes it very silky.
