You’ve heard the term before Hair Serum. At first, it may seem a little redundant. Why do you need a serum if you’re already using a conditioner and deep conditioning your hair on a regular basis? Stay with me here, this next bit is very important. When used on clean hair, a hair serum has some pretty amazing benefits.
First things first.
What is a Hair Serum?
Hair serum is a silicone-based product that coats the surface of your hair. Hair serum is designed as a solution to detangling hair while providing softness and shine. A good serum will also create a protective layer over your strands to protect them from pollutants such as dust and grime. When applied properly a serum becomes an essential part of your hair care routine by coating the hair cuticles and preventing any future breakage.
Now that you’ve got the basic knowledge behind the product let's dive into its benefits.
Tames Frizz and Flyaways
Hair serum is a perfect remedy for frizz when it comes to those luscious blowouts. Or, if you’re opting for a more sleek look, you guessed it, a hair serum can be used to get rid of any pesky flyaways.
Dull hair? No problem. Take 2-4 drops of serum, warm it up in your hands and run it through your hair. You’ll get instant shine and gloss; it’s the perfect finishing touch for softness with no stickiness.
Nourishes Dry, Brittle Hair
Dry hair is more likely to break. Plain and Simple. Nourishing your strands should be priority #1. If your hair is looking particularly thirsty, try applying a serum to both towel dried, clean hair as well as post-styled hair. This will moisturize your hair and deliver a silky, smooth finish.
Helps Combat Humidity
Summer humidity can bring out the worst in all of us. Especially if your hair poofs up the moment you step outside: think Monica Geller in Friends the moment she gets to Barbados. Hair serum can help fight these environmental factors by coating the hair cuticle and stopping any moisture from penetrating your hair.
