Q: What is the CHI Enviro American Smoothing System?

It is a protein reconstructing complex with amino acids, proteins, silk and pearl to increase shine and strength. It is free from formaldehyde and formaldehyde-releasing chemicals. Its protein and amino acid complex allows temporary change in the structure of hair fibers, leaving hair easier to comb, as well as silkier, smoother and shinier hair.
