I have problematic hair, it seems. As far as hair products go, I tried many different ones. I had a lot trouble finding one that will agree with my scalp and hair type. My hair was split-ended and rather shabby-looking at times, and perhaps part of it was me trying too many products in too short a time.

Anyway, I saw a short YouTube video on silk amino acids, and decided to give it a try. Silk does not come cheap, but I was ready, willing, and able to give it a shot. ANYTHING that will help my hair and scalp return to normal. I didn’t know what I was doing wrong, but I didn’t want to go to a dermatologist immediately. I decided to retrace my steps and start over.

I gave my hair a few days’ break from any kind of “substance abuse”, using only water to wash it and not putting anything in or on my hair and scalp.

I needed a change, and I started by switching to a more natural shampoo and conditioner, and adding a capful of silk amino acids to their respective bottles.


Silk amino acids can do wonders for your hair and your skin. They can help keep moisture inside you, and repair dryness and damage. Amino acids of the silkworm have the unique ability to bind, moisturize, and adhere, which is why they have been used for over 3500 years as a way to treat the skin and hair.

It is about trial and error. Too much moisture isn’t good either, so it is best that you make a few trial runs, and see how your body/hair/scalp reacts to it.

Like with any other cosmetic or medical product, it is recommended you consult with a health care professional before starting to use silk hair conditioner.
