Why You Should Be Using A Hair Serum?

Hair serum is commonly confused with hair oil but the two are very different. Hair serums, mostly made from water-soluble silicones, work their magic on the surface of your hair. It can be used on wet hair after washing or on dry hair to finish off a style. Some hair serums can weigh the hair down but using them properly can help you avoid any heavy strands.

Let’s talk about the best ways to utilize hair serums.

Use In Moderation

Since hair serums can be heavy and if you use too much, you could be left with limp hair. When applying, use a small pea-sized amount in each section. Also, keep your serum usage down to 1-2 times per week.

Apply To Your Hair Only

Hair serums are extremely thick and are specially designed for you’re the midsection and ends of your hair. Avoid applying the serum to your scalp or roots to keep them from looking greasy or heavy.

Adding a hair serum to your army of hair products could make the difference between having hair with incredible shine and having dull, lifeless hair. Don’t be afraid to shop around until you find the perfect serum for your hair type. Remember to choose a hair serum that is water soluble for the best results.
