Design Essentials® Silk Essentials is an exceptional thermal strengthening serum created with 17 amino acids, which serve to strengthen damaged hair and smooth the hair shaft while improving hair manageability, eliminating static, and imparting a high gloss finish. This lightweight heat protectant provides an immense shine while sealing the cuticle and locking moisture into the hair when blow-drying, flat-ironing, or using hot styling tools.
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 small amount goes a long way, so be sure to use only a few drops as directed! Finish with Design Essentials Reflections Liquid Shine.

I like how it makes my hair tame. I like the way it has a normal shine.

I’ve been using this product for years. It moisturizes your hair without weighing it down or clogging the pores in your scalp.
Wonderful Product to Add Shine

I have been using this product to add shine to my hair. I haven't actually used it before any heat processes since I let my hair air dry and I do not flat iron or press my hair. I really like the shine this product gives my hair. I use a few drops in the palm of my hands and smooth it over my curls. Looks great.

Great! It made me hair super soft and easy to blow dry. You only need a few drops.
This is a staple in my routine!

My hair is natural and I usually go to a salon when I occasionally want to have it flat ironed. I decided to order Silk Essentials Thermal Strengthening Serum to do it myself and I already had the Bamboo & silk HCO leave in conditioner that I used to detangle. Wow, these 2 pair together left my hair silky and as straight as if my stylist had done it!
