This is not my first time collaborating with this brand, so I’ll list links for other reviews I’ve done about their other products below. What they sent me this time is their Silk18 Shampoo that costs $17.95 for their 16-ounce bottle and $12.95 USD for 10-ounces.
Silk18 is supposed to help you achieve stronger and smoother hair. Infused with eighteen amino acids, this blend helps strengthen hair follicles and strands to protect from damage, dryness, and hair fall. It cleanses hair of dandruff, excess sebum, and impurities without stripping the scalp. Also contains argan and jojoba oil to add softness and shine to hair. This suits all hair types but most beneficial for those with damaged hair.

While I have written about hair-care products, I’m not a hair person because I have short hair that's relatively low maintenance. However, a lot of what I do with my hair is what you should NOT be doing on a regular basis. I wash and blow-dry my hair every day because it’s the easiest to style (and am aware that I’m likely frying my hair doing this).
When you start washing with Silk18, the directions say to use a quarter-size amount of product to lather, let it sit for 2-3 minutes, then rinse. This is a shampoo you do a double-wash with (so lather and rinse TWICE). After using it, I’d say that a quarter-size amount is probably more than you’ll need, especially if you have short hair because it lathers up A LOT. I don’t think the double-wash is necessary unless you’re going for a deep cleanse. Certain formulas (such as moisture) are harder to wash out in my experience, but this washes out easily.
After I was done washing and blow drying my hair, I saw a difference in the feel and appearance. Normally, my hair will be fluffy with volume, but it’ll also be dry-feeling with no shine whatsoever and my scalp will also be dry – sometimes with a burning sensation. However, with the Silk18, my hair was soft, sleek with plenty of shine, and my scalp felt great.
