The first time I used a silicone on my hair, it was stunning. Shiny, gorgeous, frizz-free.
Never happened again. After that it was just grease, limp hair, etc.
My hair looks as good, or better, than that first silicone day every day with regular protein treatments and CG friendly products. And it feels tons better to the touch.
