The Classy Chics – CHI Aloe Vera Shampoo and Conditioner Review

The Classy Chics – CHI Aloe Vera Shampoo and Conditioner Review

In this new normal that the world is experiencing due to the coronavirus, our lives and routines have definitely changed. I’m working remotely each day and find myself very comfortable in yoga pants, washing my hair every other day and wearing very little makeup. I have been using CHI’s Aloe Vera with Agave Nectar Shampoo and Conditioner on those “hair washing” days (which are usually videoconference days) and I love how it moisturizes my hair and keeps the frizz at bay.

CHI has a new collection of haircare products—CHI’s Aloe Vera with Agave Nectar—that are made specifically for curly hair. The products in this seven-piece collection feature a special blend of Aloe Vera and Agave Nectar paired with a Super Hydration blend and a low pH. This will moisturize, protect and care for curls while helping to define, create and maintain the natural curl pattern of each strand of hair. What I really love about it is how soft and bouncy my hair is. The formula locks in moisture to guard against humidity and provide easier maintenance of curly hair. My natural waves are showing up big time on all of those videoconferences that I’m doing from my home offices these days.

The star of this show though is the Aloe Vera, which contains an abundance of essential nutrients and vitamins, which offer excellent conditioning properties and protection to your hair. Utilizing the benefits of amino acids to improve elasticity and strength, this natural humectant retains hair moisture, locking it in to reveal smoothness and reduced frizz.

Agave Nectar helps to prevent future damage and brittleness and fortifies weak hair strands resulting in tamed hair with lustrous, shiny results. The line’s formula is completed with the addition of Silk and a Super Hydration Blend, a unique mix of specially selected amino acids and vitamins that provide easier maintenance of curly locks.

As I mentioned above, there are seven products in this line. I tried out two of them—the CHI Aloe Vera Curl Enhancing Shampoo and the Detangling Conditioner.

CHI Aloe Vera Curl Enhancing Shampoo – This gentle lathering shampoo delicately cleanses hair of impurities without stripping hair of natural oils. It provides moisture to help soothe and nourish your scalp while increasing elasticity and enhancing curl definition. It also smells wonderful, which is definitely a plus in my book!

CHI Aloe Vera Detangling Conditioner – This is a great detangling conditioner that helps lock in moisture for thirsty-tresses. It makes my hair feel so soft and manageable. It makes my hair feel happy and healthy.

CHI Aloe Vera Detangling Conditioner

The single best present you can give mom & dad this year is to stay home whenever humanly possible, and online shopping makes this feasible.

Chris Appleton’s Favorite Hair Products – Features CHI Lava Wand

You don’t have to click on TMZ for some of the best and most-exclusive celebrity photos… just go on Chris Appleton’s instagram. The celebrity hairstylist, who’s had a passion for hair since the age of 8, is the man behind the manes of Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, and Dua Lipa, among others. With such a star-studded roster, the stylist, 36, has undoubtedly picked up some helpful tips along the way… and Chris Appleton’s favorite hair products are the tools to achieve them. “You can make people look and feel really good,” Appleton tells TZR. “Hair is almost like emotional medicine in a way. You can really change someone’s day.”

Change, however, is a concept that Appleton is ambivalent on. “Nowadays, someone will do something that becomes a trend for a minute,” he explains. “Social media has made everything change so quickly. I think people always want something different on a daily or weekly basis.” Which is why the stylist is a fan of classic and timeless looks, all done with his secret weapons. See three of the styles ahead.

Chris Appleton’s Favorite Hairstyles: Bouncy Half-Up

To get this look seen on J.Lo back in January, Appleton notes to focus on the hair prep. “It’s the way you dry the hair, and how you curl it with a curling iron,” he notes. He goes the extra mile by using two different-sized hot tools. “I’ll usually curl it with a smaller iron and then go in with a larger curling iron,” Appleton explains, noting that the larger iron helps stretch the curl out. After, he recommends brushing it out for more volume.

Keep Your Color-Treated Hair Looking Healthy – Features CHI Keratin Reconstructing Leave-In Conditioner

Keep Your Color-Treated Hair Looking Healthy – Features CHI Keratin Reconstructing Leave-In Conditioner

A lot of us women like to get our hair dyed or highlighted frequently, because we want to have that beautiful platinum blonde or dark auburn hair color that we love but were not naturally born with. Coloring your hair can give you a life-changing boost of confidence, because your hair is the color you want it to be, and no one has to know that is actually artificial! However, one of the only downsides to coloring your hair is that the bleach used to strip your hair of its natural color also strips your hair of its natural oils especially when used on your hair very often. 

As a result, coloring your hair frequently can cause serious damage to your hair and can make your hair look dry and fried which is not the most attractive look. My hair in the past has looked very dry, frizzy, and damaged from the usual full head of highlights I get done typically every few months. But now I have started doing things to my hair to better take care of it and make it look and feel more healthy, and I’ve got to tell you it has made a huge difference! My tomboy sister who doesn’t often notice small details of someone’s appearance has even told me that it looks ten times better than it did a few months ago! So without further ado, here is how I changed my hair from looking like a fried frizzy mess to looking beautiful, silky, and smooth in just a short period of time!

Use keratin-infused shampoo and conditioner, a sulfate-free shampoo is also a must!

Keratin protein is great for your hair, therefore using a shampoo and conditioner that contains protein will work wonders on your hair and make it look much healthier. The shampoo and conditioner that you use can make a tremendous difference, and if you color your hair often it is especially important to use shampoo and conditioner that it is also extra moisturizing. I personally love using the Chi Keratin Reconstructing Conditioner which contains jojoba and argon oils as well as hydrolyzed silk, ingredients that are proven to give your hair extra moisture and shine.

When you color your hair, it is imperative to wash your hair with shampoo that does not contain sulfates since they can strip your hair of the hair dye over time.

It’s so important especially with over-processed hair to pay attention to the ingredients that are in your shampoo and conditioner. It is also best in general but especially for color-treated hair to only wash your hair about three or four times a week, because washing it everyday will strip your hair of its natural oils making in dryer.

Best Tea Tree Shampoos To Soothe Your Scalp – Features CHI Tea Tree Oil

Best Tea Tree Shampoos To Soothe Your Scalp – Features CHI Tea Tree Oil

It doesn’t really matter whether you know exactly what causes your scalp to become itchy, flaky and dandruff-filled or it’s just a problem which seems to come and go at random. Whatever the cause, dandruff sucks. That’s why it’s always a good idea to have a tea tree oil shampoo in your hair care regimen.

Tea tree shampoos are an antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal answer to dealing with a number of scalp-related issues. From dandruff and psoriasis to hair thinning and lice, tea tree oil shampoos offer a wide range of positive benefits for your hair and skin. After treatment with one of these shampoos, you’ll most likely find your hair appears healthier. Plus, there’s a good chance you’ll also experience a fuller head of hair, as tea tree oil may stimulate hair growth by removing dead cells from hair follicles.

Another reason these skin-condition-fighting tea tree oil shampoos are wonderful is that you can still continue using your existing shampoo and simply switch it out for one of these tea tree options once or twice a week depending on your skin. So, there’s no need to part with a shampoo you already love.

However, it’s important to note that tea tree shampoo won’t work for everyone as they do contain tea tree essential oil. Some people have negative skin reactions to essential oils, which is why it’s important to do a small test on your skin before applying any products to your scalp.

Below, you’ll find 15 of the top tea tree oil shampoos available on Amazon. Each one is well-reviewed and made to take on a variety of skin conditions. Add one to your hair-care routine and say goodbye to an itchy, flaky scalp.

What Is a Keratin Treatment and How Does It Work? – Features CHI Keratin Mist

What Is a Keratin Treatment and How Does It Work? – Features CHI Keratin Mist

When it comes to your hair, there are a lot of things to consider. Aside from the latest hair color trends and newest products, the buzz around different salon treatments, like keratin treatments, may have piqued your curiosity. Read on to learn everything there is to know about keratin treatments for hair.

Keratin and Keratin Treatments

Before we explain what a keratin treatment is, let’s go over what keratin is. Keratin is a protein that is the key structural building block for your hair, skin, and nails. Keratin is found in humans and animals alike in forms ranging from hooves to soft, flexible skin, which illustrates how strong and delicate keratin can be. When the outer layer of keratin becomes damaged, it affects the new cells that are no longer being protected beneath it. This causes damage in the form of dry, brittle hair or rough and cracked skin. 

How It Works

Keratin is used to smooth and fill in the damage of the hair’s cuticle layer. A keratin treatment is unlike a perm or relaxer in that it doesn’t actually change the hair’s disulfide bonds, making it a semi-permanent treatment that lasts around three months, depending on the hair’s texture.

A keratin treatment creates a barrier between external factors, like heat and humidity, and your hair. It can be a great treatment for clients who have perfectly healthy hair but are looking to have their natural curl and frizz smoothed out and protected from the elements. A keratin treatment will not remove the curl completely but it will cut straightening time in half, if not more.

Safety of Keratin Treatments

Much talk has been made about the safety of keratin treatments. Not all treatments are considered equal, and as a general rule of thumb, it’s important to do your research beforehand. Tests found dangerously high levels of formaldehyde in the Brazilian Keratin Treatment (BKT) brand, about 10 times higher than what is registered as safe. A safer option is Keratin Shot by Salerm Cosmetics, a favorite among professional stylists.

Keratin treatments are also safe to use on hair that has been previously highlighted or colored.

CHI Keratin Mist

CHI’s Keratin Mist is a leave-in strengthening treatment. The formula works to leave hair soft, silky, and shiny.

You might be tender-headed and hate the pain that comes with styling your hair. Maybe you’re hoping for a different look.

If you have natural black hair and are looking for a s keratin treatment to smooth those lockss, here are a few to give a try.

CHI Keratin K-Trix 5 Smoothing Treatment

CHI is one brand that is well-known for their styling tools, so it’s only right that the brand would fall on this list.

Their Keratin K-Trix 5 Smoothing Treatment is another hybrid keratin treatment that isn’t as permanent or strong as the professional types. If you’re worried about the quality of your hair, this is a good option if you don’t want to jump straight into a powerful keratin treatment.

The CHI treatment will also help lock in mositure and stop your hair from being as susceptible to humidity. It also includes tea tree oil and peppermint oil which have great benefits for the hair like stimulating the scalp and keeping your lock moisturized.

Best Heat Protectants Under $30 – Features CHI 44 Iron Guard

Best Heat Protectants Under $30 – Features CHI 44 Iron Guard

If any type of hot tool makes an appearance in your beauty routine, you’ll want to find the best heat protectant for hair to go along with it. Whether your styler of choice is a blow-dryer, straightener, thermal brush, or curling iron, your hair will definitely thank you if you prep it beforehand with a protective covering.

While most formulas start off with the same basic purpose (shielding your style from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit), they differ in bonus effects. That’s where our favorite data source comes in: online shopping reviews that reveal which bottles do more than the rest. Common complaints are: mists that dispense unevenly, serums that weigh down your final style, formulas that smell like something’s burning, or sprays that leave behind a crunchy residue. We’re tossing all those out in favor of the options that impart lightweight shine and smoothness, while also cutting down on dry time and sealing split ends.

Key selling points: This cult classic gets rave reviews for its ability to preserve color vibrancy and help prevent split ends.

I need all the protection I can get, and THIS gives it. I do not use irons or blow-dryers daily anymore; however, this ensures my hair is soft when I do and still has some life to it. And it doesn’t make my hair stiff (which others did).” —Sherri Lee, Amazon

Mills likes to use CHI straighteners like this one when traveling abroad, because it has dual-voltage capabilities and heats up in less than a minute. She also appreciates that you can adjust it in five degree increments (all the way up to 425 degrees) so you can choose the right temperature for your hair. “I use low heat for fragile hair, medium for “normal” hair, and higher temperatures for thick or textured hair,” she says.

The dynamic CHI G2 Professional Flat Iron offers a sleek design, upgraded technology and outstanding performance.

Best Curling Iron and Curling Wand – Features CHI Spin N Curl

Best Curling Iron and Curling Wand – Features CHI Spin N Curl

When it comes to heat-styling your hair, if you’ve ever tried to achieve tight ringlets or the not-so-effortless beachy waves, you know that it takes the right kinds of tools. We tested some of the most popular curling wands and irons, and ones that are newer to the market. Our verdict? The best curling wand is the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand (available at Sephora for $199), which creates pretty, soft waves without a fuss.

 All of these hair tools are perfect for tossing waves into a pin-straight style or for an elegant ‘do complete with cascading barrel curls.

CHI Spin N Curl Ruby Red

The CHI Spin N Curl Ceramic Rotating Hair Curler is the oddest looking curling tool I’ve ever seen. It’s one that makes you—dare I say—pull out the instruction manual. If it delivers amazing results, though, I don’t mind consulting the instruction manual before diving into a beauty or styling tool. The CHI is incredibly easy to use once you practice with one or two strands of hair, it feels very durable, and the mechanism it uses keeps you from burning yourself.

If you’re looking at the tool and scratching your head, we get it. Here’s how it works: Take a small section of hair and drape it over the open chamber, then press one of the arrow buttons (depending on if you want to curl toward or away from your head) and the tulip-looking device pulls your hair in and twirls it around a ceramic barrel to form the curl. When it’s done, the device beeps to let you know you can pull the iron away from your head, releasing your curl with it. Yes, you read that right: you’re curling your hair without any tugging, wrapping, or burning.

The downside of this device is that it only creates loose waves, unless you leave the same section of hair in the chamber for a second or third spin, or if you make good use of styling products. You may also have better luck creating tight curls if you increase the temperature; this tool goes up to 450°F (the highest any of our curling tools went to) but I used it at 350°F, which was on par with the setting I used on most of the other irons and wands. The CHI heats up in about 40 seconds and automatically shuts off after an hour.

If you’ve had negative experiences with traditional curling irons and wands, or if you have fine hair that curls easily without being held tightly to a ceramic barrel, I’d suggest giving this one a try.

The Best Curling Irons – Features CHI Spin N Curl

Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products and single out the most convincing ones.

While we’ve written about lots of hairstyling tools before — including brushes, straighteners, and hair dryers — here, we’ve rounded up the best curling irons and wands, as praised by the most enthusiastic reviewers on Amazon.

CHI Spin N Curl

“Quick,” “fast,” and “easy” are the most common words used to describe this automatic curling iron. One reviewer asks, “Where has this been all my life?” She curled all her hair “in less than ten minutes” with this iron that wraps a strand of hair around a barrel with the press of a button and quickly heats it up, creating even pin curls. She confirms that it is “so easy to use.” A dad describes the process of using this iron on his daughter this way: “I’m in construction so I don’t have the lightest hand.

I’m BEYOND happy with this product. I did her hair in eight minutes, and it came out great.” Customers even appreciate that you can choose the temperature, so there’s more nuance in the types of curls you can get. One appreciates that she can decide what type of curl she wants, adding that “the automatic spin just makes it so simple and amazing.”

How to Curl Your Hair With a Straightener – Features CHI 44 Iron Guard

How to Curl Your Hair With a Straightener – Features CHI 44 Iron Guard

I am going to let you in on a little secret. You know how all those girls on IG with perfect beach waves? They’re using hair straighteners to get them. I’m not even kidding—a flat iron (!!!) is how they get those bomb-ass waves and curls. But if you don’t know your way around a flat iron, it can be kind of hard to figure out how TF to maneuver your flat iron through your hair without messing it up. 

Don’t stress too much about it though—there are only seven easy steps that you need to figure out to get the Insta-worthy hair of your dreams. You’re welcome.

STEP 1: SPRITZ YOUR HAIR WITH A HEAT PROTECTANT

Safety first, people. Make sure you mist on a heat-protectant spray to prevent your hair from getting fried or damaged.

STEP 2: ON THE RIGHT SIDE, START CURLING THE HAIR CLOSEST TO THE NAPE OF YOUR NECK

Part a 1-inch section of hair closest to the nape of your neck, and feed the section in between the two clamps of the flat iron. Then, in one fluid motion (or else you’ll create a bunch of not-cute crimps in your hair), twist your wrist away from your face, so the hair flows over (not under) the iron.

To create the curl, you need to make sure the hair continues to wrap around the flat iron’s barrel as you push the iron toward your ends. It’s basically, like, the same technique you’d curl a ribbon with a scissor. Oh, and also a quick reminder: The smaller the section, the curlier your hair will be. So if you want to switch it up and go for some super tight curls, part a section that’s less than 1 inch.

STEP 3: WORK YOUR WAY UP TOWARD YOUR HAIRLINE

Keep working your way up toward your hairline with the flat iron. Don’t forget to feed the hair into the flat iron a little higher than mid-length—this makes sure your curl starts closer to the top of your head and not just at the ends.

STEP 4: GRAB THE SECTION OF HAIR AT THE HAIRLINE

Finish the right side off by grabbing the section of hair at the hairline, clamp the hair around the mid-length, then turn the iron away from your face. This hair is low-key really easy to curl, since hair near the hairline isn’t as thick as the rest of your hair.

STEP 5: ON THE LEFT SIDE, START AT YOUR NAPE AGAIN

Repeat the second step, but this time on the left side of your head.

If you’re right-handed, as you curl the middle section of your hair, your right arm will be reaching over your head and your fingers should be pointing toward the floor. This placement is normal (even though it might feels mad weird) and it’ll help control the iron better. As you move toward the ends, though, twisting your wrist away from your face, you’ll find that your arm needs to cross in front of your face to reach the tips.

STEP 6: FINISH OFF WITH THE HAIR AT YOUR HAIRLINE

Repeat step 4 and finish off the hair at your hairline on your left side. (Again, you’ll reach your right arm over your head and then bring it in front of your face to control the iron.) Be sure to run your fingers through the curls to break them up a bit—or you can even use a boar bristle brush for a more uniform finish if you don’t like the separated spiral look.

STEP 7: SPRITZ YOUR HAIR WITH A HAIRSPRAY

And that’s it! You’ve successfully curled your hair with a straightener. Before you snap a pic, spritz your hair with a hairspray to make sure your curls hold.

CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray

Best Hair Dryer Deals – Features CHI Tech Travel Hair Dryer

Professional hair styling tools don’t come cheap. Top brands such as Dyson, GHD, and Hary Josh can cost hundreds of dollars. While a professional hairdryer has great multi-functionalities and smart settings, if you’re looking for something that will get the job done at an affordable price, we’ve combed through all the best online deals to find some of the best hair dryers out there. These picks still have those extra features and settings that you’re looking for but you won’t have to break the bank for your daily hair routine. Some of our favorite hair dryers even made it to this list.

When it comes to picking up the right hair dryer, the weight, wattage, attachments, heat settings, and even cord length can be more important than fancy hair dryer technology. If you’re blow-drying your hair every day then you want a reliable and durable hair dryer. Hairdryers on sale from the store might be selling for a decent price but those quick store buys could result in a broken hairdryer in just a couple of months. And different hair types will require different types of hair dryers so we’ve found some of the most recommended to create those salon-caliber blowouts.

CHI Tech Travel

If you’re looking for a super lightweight hair dryer for travel, the CHI Tech Travel has a sweet sleek and collapsible design to help you store and take anywhere you go.


What is my hair type?

Your hair type will determine how you can style your hair and what products you should be using. Do you have fine hair, medium hair, or coarse hair? If you have fine hair your hair is smaller in circumference and feels very thin. Thin hair has less resistance to heat so people with fine hair texture can be prone to heat damage.

How do I choose a hairdryer?

To ensure that you’re not damaging your hair you have to choose a hair dryer for your hair type. If you have thin hair, a ceramic hair dryer is the better option, while an ionic hairdryer is better suited for thick hair. If you have curly hair you’re going to want a hair dryer with a diffuser to lock in curls while drying.

What is the difference between ceramic and ionic?

Remember not all hair dryers are created equally. Ceramic hair dryers regulate heat temperatures so that high-intensity heat doesn’t damage thin hair. Ionic hair dryers produce negatively charged ions to break down positively charged water molecules. Ionic are more costly but are great for cutting down frizzy hair.

Best Hair Detanglers for Pain-Free Combing – Features CHI Aloe Vera Oil

Best Hair Detanglers for Pain-Free Combing – Features CHI Aloe Vera Oil

Let’s be real: When it comes to hair tangles, conditioner can only go so far. For those of us with fussy hair—whether it’s dry or color-treated or super thick—we need a little something extra. And by extra, I mean hard-working. What we need is a powerful formula, packed with hair-loving ingredients, that smooths our strands and leaves them sleek.

Enter: a hair detangler. It can come in many forms—creams, sprays, oils, you name it—but it has one mission and one mission only, and that is to smooth every knot and tangle. To reduce breakage and stress when combing, a detangler is crucial. It acts as a primer before you style, getting your hair in flexible shape for the next step.

“It’s essential to detangle your hair right,” says Yoshico Alexis, a colorist and stylist at Pierre Michel Salon in NYC. “Make sure to stay away from hair breakage by not using rough brushes or pulling or yanking your hair.” Lucky for you, we’ve got the most effective detangling formulas right here.

Best for Curly Hair: CHI Aloe Vera Oil

Give your comb a break with this moisturizing formula. It helps to increase your curl’s elasticity and pattern so that your hair is bouncier and healthier. Spread evenly throughout damp hair before styling. You can also use it as a little pick-me-up if you start to see some flyaways.

CHI Aloe Vera Oil

Fueled with Aloe Vera and silk, the oil fortifies weak strands and reduces breakage and dryness. Seals in superior moisture and smoothness to control frizz. Provides high-gloss finish for beautiful, all-day styles.

Key Features:

  • Fortifies weak strands and reduces breakage and dryness
