Introduction to hair serum:
Have you ever wondered how some people have such lively and silky-smooth hair? No, it is not because they have a professional hair stylist looking after them. If you are someone who oils and shampoos their hair regularly, you are halfway there. It is as simple as adding a hair serum to your collection.
It is well known that your hair turns frizzy and unwieldy after a shampoo session. This happens because your hair loses some natural oils during this process. This is where a hair serum comes in handy.
How hair serum works:
Serums are silicone based. Silicone is a rubber-like compound which coats the strands of your hair. This gives your tresses a smooth and polished look while acting like a protective layer.
Serums offer a wide range of uses. They can reduce frizziness, make your hair smooth and shiny, reduce tangles and most notably, protect from damage.
- Since serums lock in moisture, they can reduce the frizziness and dryness of your hair.
- Because of their coating action, serums impart a gloss to your hair which makes them look smooth and shiny.
- Because of the smoothness, there is a lesser chance of hair getting tangled or knotted.
- Probably the principal function of a serum, it protects from damage. Since serums protectively coat your hair, they prevent most damage which could arise from either pollution or hair styling or hair colouring. Many serums are designed to be used before straightening or curling and are sold as heat protectants.
How to use hair serum:
It is critical to know how and when to use hair serum.
Wash your hair
As serums work by coating your hair, the hair must be clean before application. Else it would just defeat the purpose. Leave the hair slightly damp for easy application.
Warm up the serum
Serums have a thick consistency which could make them hard to use. So, take 2-3 drops in your palms and warm it up for a few seconds. This helps in a smoother application.
Avoid applying on the scalp
Serums are not designed to be absorbed. So, avoid applying it on the scalp since it can lead to product buildup and cause your hair to look greasy. Apply from the roots to the middle of the strand.
Comb it through
After applying, use a comb to spread evenly down to the ends. Avoid pulling or using too much force as it can cause damage to your hair.
Avoid using the serum every day because it will weigh down your hair and may also look greasy.
Including a hair serum in your hair care routine can have substantial benefits. Not only does it make your hair look better, but it also protects it from damage.
