Did you ever wonder if that Hair Serum lying on your bathroom counter is just another useless product? We hope not, because, believe it or not, a hair serum can be a saving grace for all hair types and textures. These products have concentrated formulas which are used to seal the moisture, and help to protect the hair from damaging elements such as, the intense heat of your blow dryer.
It’s true that a leave-in conditioner adds moisture, but adding a serum on top of it may help the hair to remain hydrated. Also, it helps to diffuse unwanted moisture in your hair, which is a major cause for the hair strands to swell, most commonly known as, frizz. Moreover, the sealing properties of a hair serum also works to diminish split ends, protect the hair from heat damage, and aids in straightening coarse hair.
A hair serum is basically a silicone-based formula that coats the surface of the hair. It is designed as a hair care solution to prevent the hair from getting tangled, and add softness as well as shine. It protects the hair not only by exposure to the sun, but also pollutants like dust and grime.
BEFORE APPLYING …
A hair serum is only applied on damp or wet hair because the purpose of hair serum is to protect the hair against dust and grime. If you apply it on unwashed hair, the purpose will be defeated. So, wash your hair with a good shampoo, followed by a conditioner. Finally, apply the hair serum
Pro Tip for Beginners: Use a hair serum that comes with a complete hair range along with a compatible shampoo and conditioner.
Serums usually come in small packaging, but these little packages go a long way. Just two to three drops of serum for the whole head is more than enough because excessive product gives a greasy feeling and looks stringy. Take a few drops of the serum and rub it in between your palms as it will allow to spread evenly. Now, use the serum on damp hair, starting from mid-shaft of the hair to ends. Make sure to move in a raking motion to let every strand of hair with serum. Then, proceed to your blowout and hair styling.
Pro Tip: For extra shine and tamed flyaways, reapply the serum after styling for the desired effect.
POST APPLICATION HAIR CARE
After applying the serum, brush the hair downwards for easy detangling. Now proceed to normal styling and blow drying. If you are using any hair appliances like straighteners, tong, wand etc, apply serum prior to electric equipment, as it will protect the damage caused by heat appliances.
