Product Review

Chi Deep Brilliance Silk Reflection

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

Chi is a product line from Farouk Systems, Inc. that features a range of products from shampoos and conditioners to relaxers, all the way to styling aids and tools. The Deep Brilliance line is comprised of products formulated by hairstylists with experience working on highly textured hair. Chi Deep Brilliance Reflect is a silk infused, reconstructing gloss treatment that helps with manageability and styling.

PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES:

  • Alcohol free
  • Reconstructing treatment
  • Increases moisture level with pure silk
  • Non-sticky
  • Lightweight
  • Pleasant fragrance

NOURISHING INGREDIENTS:

  • Olive fruit oil
  • Cyclomethicone (silicone that helps nutrients enter the hair shaft quickly)
  • Dimethiconol (a silicone oil, also known as an emollient, used to make the hair softer)
  • Cyclopentasiloxane (a commonly used silicone that provides extra shine without making the hair greasy)

You may be thinking this seems like a lot of man-made ingredients, and silicones have gotten a bad rep because they can cause some amount of build up, but I think certain silicones have their place in hair care products. Silicones are synthetic compounds that are typically heat-resistant, and have low toxicity (the degree to which a substance can cause damage) and chemical reactivity (change in composition of a substance). Silicones repel water and are resistant to oxidizing and ultraviolet light. They also aid in detangling and reducing frizz.

Basically, they coat the hair and act as a protectant against outdoor elements and heat styling. If you feel your hair has excessive build up from products with silicones, use a clarifying (not neutralizing) shampoo.

BEST USES:

I primarily use this product to finish my wash-n-go while diffusing to give it that shiny, healthy glow. I also prefer to use this product for flat iron straightening because it gives the hair a silky, moisturized finish without making it oily or heavy.

WHERE TO BUY:

This product is available through several online retailers. Here are a few:
