The one I like best is Biosilk Silk Therapy by Farouk. It works great. I have very thick, coarse hair that is highlighted and this keeps it smooth and shiny. I have not found anything else like it, the key to this is start out using a small amount, then add more if needed. Some people w/ fine/thin hair say its too greasy but seriously a pea size amount on that type of hair makes all the difference. In my hair I use a quarter size amount. I does not have any hold to it but is the best of all the serums out there. It is top quality and even a 2.26 oz bottle lasts about 3 months with daily use. Look on the auction sites for good deals.
I bought the silk therapy today and will try it soon. Couple of questions: Do you use it with heat - I do not blow dry my hair I let it dry naturally. Also do you only use it on freshly shampoo hair or can you add it to dry hair at different intervals?
I bought a small one to see how it feels- it is a bit pricey but I'll give it a try. My hair is wavy/curly and I need something that eliminated the frizz and adds shine without weighing it down.
I like John Freida's "Sheer Blonde" products, I use the "anti frizz" one all the time & love it, I think it makes my hair nice & smooth (I use the one called "Dream creme" I think it is, it comes in a tube...I just use a teeny bit to smooth the hair out, it's nice:-)) He's also got an "anti frizz" serum, I've never tried that one, I think the "dream creme" does the job
Now I know they have a line for dark hair as well, I'm assuming they've got similar products there that works just as good....
The actual Silk Therapy product. It's basically an oil-based serum that adds shine and conditioning to hair while smoothing down the hair cuticle, which gets rid of the frizzies. It's a good product.
Another one you might try is the Frizz Eliminator by Sexy Hair Concepts. I think it's in the HealthySexyHair line.
I take flaxseed oil capsules less often in the last couple of weeks-I used to take it daily, lately I only take it 2 or 3 times per week. I still have managable acne. I am still not quite sure if flaxseed oil helped with my acne or if I am going through a good stage.
Another BioSilk user here. I love it. I have long, layered, straight, highlighted blond, very thin but lots of it...hair. LOL! It does not weigh it down. I use a small amount after shampooing...and I do not condition my hair. I do blowdry it. And I curl it. It still takes a curl even with this product in there. I do not use any mouses or gels. My sister loves it too and she has long, layered, thick, wavy hair and it works great for her for straightening while blowdrying. I bought mine at Target...the small bottle for $11. I also find it helpful to use an anti residue shampoo once a week. Cuz it does build up...on me anyway.
To tell you the truth, I have not noticed anything good or bad due to flaxseed oil intake. My hair is still the same-I have had thick hair to begin with. So, I can not tell you flaxseed oil is good or bad for health. Perhaps it may also depend on the length of time of intake.
