Protects Against Thermal Styling: Regardless if you rock your hair natural or adorn your strands chemically relaxed, thermally styling your hair should never result in excessive heat damage or curl elongation, especially if you protect your hair with our Silk Essentials Thermal Straightening Serum. Great for all hair types, this lightweight heat protectant provides an immense shine while sealing the cuticle and locking moisture into the hair while blow-drying, flat-ironing, or when using curling irons and wands.Improves Hair Manageability: Design Essentials Silk Essentials was created with 17 amino acids which serve to strengthen damaged hair and smooth the hair shaft – improving hair manageability, eliminating static, and imparting a high gloss finish.DE Professional Tip: Since Silk Essentials can be used on wet or dry hair, protecting your hair from heat damage throughout the entire styling process has never been this easy! To achieve your best blowout or thermal silk-out yet, we recommend applying Silk Essentials to wet (cleansed and conditioned) hair before using a blow-dryer or diffuser AND AGAIN before using your favorite thermal tool to silk your hair. Just remember, a little bit goes a long way, so be sure to use only a few drops as directed!
