So i've been testing out CHI Silk Infusion for a few days now.. and so far, its not bad! Prior to purchasing this, i've been reading up on forums and blogs about where to buy this product. Since i live in calgary, its often quite hard for me to find some products that i really want! :( A lot of people said that this would be available at your local grocery stores.. so i checked walmart, safeway, co-op, zellers etc etc but no luck! :( Just when i was set on purchasing it online, i spotted it at a hair salon at my local mall! I knew i shouldve checked salons earlier! and although it was a bit pricier than i wanted.. i figured itd be much better than waiting for it to ship here :) So finally, here's my review!

- Makes my hair softer, smoother and shinier
- Heat protectant
- Smell! It smells like... old man's cologne :(
- Very liquidity, becareful when pouring out of the bottle! As you can see in the picture above, i poured way too much the first time using it :(
I think this is a good product because it does help make my hair softer and smoother than usual. I definately like how its also a heat protectant because i like to blow dry my hair rather than air dry, and the constant use of a blowdryer + hair straightener has made my hair very dry :( The main thing i didnt like about this product was the smell. It is very strong and not very pleasant. However, i assume that i will eventually get used to it like i do to other smells and therefore, it wont be as bad later on. But for now, i am going to only use this prior to blowdrying (and not straightening) and it helps decrease the intensity of the smell. :)
