I am newly transitioning and I love Chi Silk Infusion. They are having a sale at Essentials in the mall where a 6oz bottle is only $10!!!!!!!!!! Normally that joint is like $25. So I am going to stock up.

But I was just thinking how would this fit in with my natural hair. I love the way it makes my permed hair feel, But I don't know what it would do to natural hair. Ladies, please if you have any info on this I would appreciate it before I go stock up on it and can't even use it in my natural hair.

TIA

Hey Belle,
Sorry to have overlooked your thread. I use it on my transitioning hair and my daughter's natural hair because I use our Pibbs Dryer and even though it's indirect heat I want to be on the safest side possible.  At any rate, it works well on both and I am pleased with it.  So if you plan to use heat on your natural hair, be it direct or indirect I'd say go for it...you're going to need something and it does the job.

Perfect timing. I haven't had a relaxer in 9 weeks and I am in the process of going natural. When I relaxed my hair I loved Chi Silk Fusion. This product was perfect to add some moisture, without weighing it down. Not to mention it felt so silky. Now, I'm wearing my hair in a afro and it doesn't has the same affect. My hair feels and looks dry and I have to use a lot of it(which isn't cheap). So I switched to using Shea Butter to lock in the moisture. Hope this help you out.

thanks ladies. I also wanted to know for those who are natural, would the silk infusion actually be a good sealant? I went and got the bottles and will continue to use it

The mistake you were making was trying to use it as a moisturizer for natural hair, that's not it's intended purpose. If you're natural and need a good heat protectant, you've got it. Natural hair needs a lot of moisture, a water based moisturizer tends to work best and then you can seal with an oil or butter. Some say that shea butter moisturizes and I'm not up for debating that. I find that it is moisturizing but I wouldn't use it as my sole moisturizer.

At any rate, happy you found something that works for you.

I believe I've read where some ladies (relaxed and natural) use it as a sealant. I tend to use jojoba or shea to seal and then aid the Chi silk infusion as a heat protectant on top of that.  That's just what I do, and it works for me.

Thanks for the tip. It was hard to find a product that would moisturize  my relaxed hair, without the oilyness or added weight.  I found that using Keracare essential oils gave me a headache, but silk fusion did the trick. Now that I am transitioning, (Lord how mercy) my hair is so thick and kinky. So, now I dillute the essentials oils and use it in conjuction with Shea Butter. What moisturizers have you found that works okay?

Co-signing w/ Dani. 

To the OP:  I love the way Silk Infusion makes me and my DDs' hair feel, but I don't use it to moisturize.  I have a glycerin/ tea tree oil/ rosemary oil/ peppermint oil/ aloe vera juice/ water spray for that and I seal w/ olive oil or coconut oil.  I use the Chi SI and Sedu spray when flat ironing my DDs' hair and it comes out beautifully. 

Btw, we're all natural so it works for naturals, too.
