how can i use this creme?????????
Muntasir T on Mar 19, 2013
Best Answer: I apply the Heat-Protective Silk-Straightening Cream to towel-dried hair, and then use the blow-dryer. Next, I'll use the Silk Groom Serum to smooth out my hair some, and use the flat-iron. I'll finish with another round of Silk Groom Serum.

Can this product be used on ethnic hair?
LaShunda M on Jun 28, 2013
Best Answer: Hi LaShunda, I am also African American with a mix of 4A and 4B hair type. This is the best kept secret for straightening relaxed, transitioning, tex-laxed, or natural hair!!! I wish I had known of this product before and saved myself a lot of money on products. Once I have washed my hair, I use nutress leave in conditioner, then literally a dime sized amount of the Kiehl's straightening cream, and Boe Crece Pelo Hair Rinse(leave-in condish) or Shea Moisture Transitioning Hair Milk, then I blow dry on low setting and flat iron. It sounds like it takes a long time, but I'm telling you it really cuts the time down on blow drying and flat ironing. My hair has shine and tons of movement, while still not disturbing my curl pattern at all. I have tried all of the brands that are supposed to be designed for our hair and this one surpasses them all!! I hope this helps ;-))

If used without heat or just with a blowdryer, does this product straighten the hair or just remove frizz?
A shopper on Feb 21, 2014
Best Answer: Hard question to answer because of the texture of my hair. My hair is coarse and unruly, but this product used with a blow dryer and a round brush will straighten my hair and remove the frizz.

Matthew Y on Feb 11, 2013

I cannot use a perm on my hair because I have thin fine hair very short and i am a black woman now tell me the truth will this product work on me without making me bold head?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2015
Best Answer: I am a white, 68 year old woman with salt and pepper fine hair that is frizzy! This is best product I have found. I wash my hair and do not use conditioner. I apply about a quarter's size of the cream and let my hair almost dry before blowing drying. It is great for taming the frizz and does not create helmet hair. It is definitely worth a try. Good luck.

Is this a product that will wash out with shampoo or does it last for a month, , or until the hair grows? I need a product that will last at least a month or so.
A shopper on Sep 5, 2015
Best Answer: It's not really a product that will straighten your hair. It's an excellent product to use if you blow our your hair or use a straighting iron to protect your hair from heat damage. Kind of like a leave in conditioner. I have been using thing product for years and my stylist always comments that she can't believe that I blow dry my hair daily because it's so healthy.

I'm looking for a good straightening product. i have a party to host .my hair is kinky curly. I want a straight style to wear even afterwards
Do you recommend this serum?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2015
Best Answer: This product will help tame frizzy hair (especially when used with a straightening iron). But I think you will be disappointed if you want to straighten kinky hair. I would probably recommend a keratin treatment at a salon -- after which this serum will help maintain the straightness and shine.

If I use this product to straighten my hair will my hair turn back to its natural curl after I wash it?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2016
Best Answer: Yes. The product is be no means a permanent solution. It really just helps to straighten and protect the hair when you want to straighten it. It turns mine from curly to a little wavy so it's easier to work with. It's great!

I need to add body to my hair. It is fine and thin. Will this make my hair appear to have less body?
Marion M on Dec 23, 2013
Best Answer: This is a great product is you want the waves in your hair to calm down a bit (that was what I wanted it for) or if you want to straighten it. This may weigh your hair down unless you use a small amount and blown dry your hair with a round brush and flip your hair over. Kiehl's also makes a great thickening shampoo and voumizing conditioner ... give that a try. Anyway, I love all their stuff ... from their perfume to their skincare line, all their products are great! Good luck to you!!

men can use this crime?????????arter using this creme ,then we have use the iron machine???????????/
Muntasir T on Mar 19, 2013
Best Answer: Yes, men may use this creme. Honestly, I don't think it cares about gender;)
It is a great product. Not greasy, but a little goes a long way.

This helps for people who use hair dryers, curling irons and straightening irons, but I don't use any of those. I use this product because it's the only straightening creme that works. I simply comb it through wet hair and that's it. My hair is natural hair's texture is wavy and this helps to combat frizz or fly-away strands.

Luz A on Nov 21, 2016
Best Answer: Yes! I have color-treated hair and have been using this product for several years. It leaves my hair silky and shiny every single time - and the protection means that my color lasts longer. I've tried other similar products and this one is by-far the best.

Can this be used for people with short hair? I see lots of people who are using flat irons, so I'm guessing it's mainly for longer hair.
A shopper on Apr 8, 2012
Best Answer: It's good for any length hair, if you use a blowdryer. I find I don't need my straightening iron when I use this product.
