Review of BioSilk Silk Therapy Hair Treatment

Reader Review of the Day: BioSilk Silk Therapy Hair Treatment

I used BioSilk for a while in college. I liked it, but I hadn't thought about it in a couple of years, and I certainly wasn't aware of what was in it when I used it. Reviewers, though, have noted that the Silk Therapy Hair Treatment ($24) apparently has a lot of hair-drying alcohol in it. Reader ceraes says:

"This product smells good but has tons of alcohol in it. I stopped using it for a while and the serum settled at the bottom, so when I went to go and pour it I got a watery alcohol substance. Of course, once you shake the product it works fine, but that just goes to show you how fragrance can hide how much alcohol is really in this product."

I haven't used this in awhile, but it never did much for me.

Ok, to clear this up. There are types of alcohol that are actually not drying, they are humectants. Which means they keep moisture. There are always hairdressers that are partial to one brand or another, and they almost always hate popular products. This is why I don't keep the same stylist. It helps to get more opinions.

i was a fan of this product for years until i told my hair dresser that i used it almost daily and he yelled at me -- i didnt realize how much alcohol was in it! i dont know if anyone can help, but im looking for a product that does the same thing as biosilk minus all the alcohol

I can't believe biosilk has so much alcohol, so disappointing. I always liked using it.
