Silicone-based leave-in conditioners like Biosilk Silk Therapy coat the hair making it feel smooth and appear shiny. The formula is well liked by hundreds of reviewers at MakeupAlley.com, TotalBeauty.com and Drugstore.com, where users say that it tames frizz and leaves hair soft, silky and manageable. It can be used on wet hair for detangling and to retain moisture, or dry hair to reduce frizz and add shine. However silicone can build up on the hair, so reviewers recommend washing with a clarifying shampoo on a regular basis. (See our report on shampoos for product suggestions.) Users also warn that only the tiniest bit of Biosilk is needed for optimal results -- too much can leave hair looking greasy and limp. Some say that the formula can actually dry hair out over time, but many who have used the product for years don't notice that effect. If your hair needs heavy moisturizing, a deep conditioning treatment such as Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Moist Deeeeep Conditioner (*Est. $4.25 for 8 oz.) is recommended.
