The VIP (Very Impressive Product) Pick of the Week #19

Posted 06/17/11 at 02:59PM by Audrey Fine

The Product: Biosilk Silk Therapy

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.

    I had heard really good things about this before. I totally forgot all about it, thanks for the reminder.

    I've tried and did not like it, I have long brown untreated hair, I felt it weigh my hair down. Unnatural feel. I like Patene Hair detangler spray better, my hairs best friend.

    I've seen this at Costco a few times! I haven't given it a try yet, but my hair is really long, so I probably should.
