The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #19
Posted 06/17/11 at 02:59PM by Audrey Fine
The Price: $36 for the 12 oz. bottle
The Company Spiel: "The original weightless, leave-in silk replenishing and reconstructing treatment to repair, smooth and protect all hair types."
The Real Deal: As regular readers of this column know, my 9-year-old daughter has waist-length hair that, while beautiful, is also the bane of my existence. Keeping it in good shape is a big job. So is combing it out post-shampoo. To explain how much I love Biosilk, I'll just say that if they stopped making it, I'd make my kid (finally) cut her hair -- it's that good. Snarls, tangles or whatever you personally want to call them, all but dissolve when this magic potion touches them. It makes combing through them a pleasure, imparts a nice sheen to the hair when it's dry and, as an added bonus, smells pretty good too.
The Upshot: It's not cheap, but a little goes a long way and the bottle seems to last forever. Aw, whom am I kidding? Even if it cost much more I'd sink my money into this product. It's a serious help and I shudder to imagine the combing task without it.
Oh, it also works really well to keep blow-dried hair from looking (and feeling) like straw. Want tips for getting a salon-worthy blow out at home? Search no further.
