Hair Serum 101: Everything You Need to Know
When it comes to skincare, serums are not a new concept. But less women seem to understand how and why serums are a good hair care solution. What do hair serums actually do? Where do they fit into one's hair care routine? These are just some of the many questions most haircare enthusiasts ask. And we’re going to cover all the most basic ones by the end of this blog post.
What exactly are hair serums?
Just like skin serums, hair serums are also loaded with potent ingredients that can address specific hair concerns, provide extra hydration, protection, and nourishment to your crowning glory. Because of their high concentrations of active ingredients, you can still get full results after applying a few drops of hair serum regularly.
How do they work on hair?
While it still depends on their formula, most hair serums are used by stylists to tame unruly frizz and flyaways. Hair serums formulated with extracts and oils work best in humid environments as they add gorgeous shine and provide intense moisture to the locks.
When to apply them?
It is best to apply hair serums to damp hair before using other styling products to lock in and maximize their benefits. While it may be great to use a serum all day long to touch up your tresses, remember to make the first application on clean hair.
Which hair serum is right for you?
When choosing a serum, consider your hair type and biggest concern. Does your mane lack shine? Use a serum infused with Moroccan argan oil to turn it into smooth, shiny hair. Are you suffering from rough, damaged hair? Pick a serum with organic coconut oil or silk keratin to repair its cuticles and split ends.
The ultimate revitalization for locks, hair serums are an essential step in every haircare routine.
