This quest for healthier hair is how BioSilk Silk Therapy emerged in 1986. For centuries, silk was celebrated as a luxurious fabric because of its smooth texture and brilliant luster. Throughout history, silk clothed royalty and the elite, continually evolving with fashion trends to be one of the most coveted fabrics of all times. It is also one of the strongest fibers in the world equal to steel. Because of this, Farouk Shami researched and discovered the benefits of silk proteins and how they could be applied to hair. Each silk protein contains 17 of the 19 amino acids found in hair, imparting shine, taming frizz and preventing split ends. Farouk knew than that all women want their hair to be shiny, healthy looking, and conditioned properly.
