One of our favorite ingredients over here at GlamIt Hot Hair & Beauty for beautifully healthy hair is silk. Containing 17 of the 19 essential amino acids, silk has extraordinary benefits such as protecting against environmental stressors, UV rays and increasing elasticity. It also works to rejuvenate and reinforce the hair strands, leaving you with strong, nourished and shiny hair. We have two brands which contain this wonderful ingredient, namely Balmain Hair Couture and the newly launched, BioSilk. Read more below on our top picks and why you need to be adding silk to your hair care regime.
New to South Africa and easy on the pocket, the BioSilk range strengthens hair and prevents your hair from daily damaged caused by styling tools. The weightless BioSilk® Silk Therapy® Original is a leave in reconstructing treatment that repairs and smooths all hair types. It adds beautiful shine, prevents split ends and leaves you with silky smooth hair.
The BioSilk Silk Therapy 17 Miracle leave-in-conditioner
is a powerhouse product and has 17 magnificent uses. Use it as a thermal protector before blow-drying and see how seamlessly it fights frizz, prevents colour fade, conditions and revives dull and dry hair. It is also brilliant at smoothing and sealing the hair cuticle, preventing split ends and providing volume and body.
For something a little bit more exotic, try the BioSilk Organic Coconut Oil Leave in Treatment
. Because it is infused with coconut oil and silk, we love using this on both skin and hair to increase hydration and moisture. While providing the skin with a subtle glow, this product also leaves your hair incredibly soft and shiny.
Balmain Hair Couture
If you want to spoil yourself with one of the more luxurious lines where silk is the star, then Balmain Hair Couture is for you.

Treat yourself and your hair with the Balmain Silk Perfume Gift Set
