[Review] Biosilk Silk Therapy Oil Product Review

Saturday, March 1, 2014

SO, let’s talk hair. If I had to define my hair in a few words, it would be “wavy, DRY and random” (notice the emphasis on the DRY).  The reason why I’d choose to describe my hair as “wavy” is obvious… my hair has definite waves, which tend to come out of hiding no matter what treatment/product I use. It’s also dry because my hair always has split ends, has a coarse texture, and breaks off if I’m not gentle with it. It’s especially difficult to find a product that provides enough moisture to my hair because my hair is long. My hair is “random” because I have some strands of hair that are perfectly straight and what I consider “fine”, while I have other pieces of hair that are super kinky, rough, and super thick. I know. Weird. But I’m not kidding.

Because of all this, it makes it difficult for me to find an “all-in-one” product. Something that smoothes my hair, gives it life and luster, and doesn’t weigh my hair down… I’m like any girl. I want something that I don’t have to spend a total fortune on but will still completely change my hair…hey, the grass is always greener right?

While this product won’t give me the Shakira hair I’ve always wanted or make me blonde (a girl can wonder right?), what this product does do is prevent the frizzies, preserve my style, protect my hair from heat, and smell UH-what-did-you-put-in-your-hair-mazing.

Biosilk Silk Therapy Oil Product Review Hair Care

Let’s go ahead and look at the product BREAKDOWN and see how Biosilk stands up. Biosilk claims to:
  • "helps moisturize and restructure your hair Silk proteins strengthen your hair"
    • Moisturize...yes, but I haven't noticed a massive "restrengthening" of my hair.
  • "vitamin B holds in moisture"
    • Well...my hair does seem to be a lot less dry...so yes, it must be that vitamin B!
  • "vitamin E with botanical extracts nourishes for shine and softness"  
    • My hair is much softer and shinier when I use Biosilk.
Biosilk Silk Therapy Oil Product Review Hair Care

Conclusion: This product is something I always have in my stash. I mean, it’s held its spot in my hair care regime for about 4 years. It makes my hair silky smooth and makes it more manageable. My hair is noticeably shinier and looks healthier. I use it right after I wash my hair (which is 3-4 times a week) and before and after I heat-style my hair for extra protection and shine. I’m also a sucker for the smell, which at this point, has become almost nostalgic for me.

But Morgan… is it worth the money?

Long-term, yes. I know is may seem a little steep at first considering the smallest bottle (2.26 oz) is around $13.99 dollars at Target, but that size lasts me about 6-8 months and I use it every time I wash my hair. Also, keep in mind, I’ve been able to find the big bottle (12.0 oz) at my local Marshall’s and TJMaxx for $20! It’s also on Amazon for $21.99. That’s a nice discount considering the same size costs $29.99 at Target.
