Thats interesting because the first pic in my siggy is after I switched to Silk Elements and had been using it for like two or three months and I noticed all my thickness vanished. I hate thin looking ends like nothing other. OMG I loved Lye!The camera has tricked you. So I have my scissor in tow... Wash Day- Strenghtening Treatment AKA More Protein? Silk Elements MegaSilk Relaxer System is enriched with the power of Olive Oil and Silk Protein to gently relaxed, resulting in silky, smooth straight hair. There was a problem completing your request. I've never colored my hair, it should be brown and not red.
