How and when to use hair serums?

There's talk of hair serums in the haircare world. Some Queens are obsessed with them for daily use, and others don't know what to use them for and why. This post is for Queens in search of answers.

While various serums use various ingredients, hair serum is a liquid-based solution designed to create a protective barrier for the hair shaft. Most often using silicones, these serums help prolong the life of your hair and improve its appearance. They also help reduce styling time and minimize the appearance of split ends between trims with your hairstylist.

Sounds magical, right? And different serums target different pain points. You want a product to nourish and protect from heat, pollutants, and other environmental stressors like UV rays. You want your hair serum to boost shine, smooth the cuticle, reduce frizz, and reduce styling time. 

When hair has that added layer of protection daily, you will notice reduced split ends, less breakage, less damage from sunlight, styling products, and brushing/combing. It is truly an essential product for a healthy hair care routine.

So how do you use it? 

A little serum goes a long way. Rub a few drops into your hands, and rub your hands through your hair (wet or dry) from root to tip. Then, comb/brush it through your hair to ensure distribution. A good serum will not weigh the hair down as hair oil might. Be sure to clarify the hair often to avoid build up, as too much serum can block the hairs ability to absorb moisture over time.

Does your hair texture matter?

Serums are best for all hair types. Because a great one will not weigh the hair down, even the finest textures can benefit from hair serum If you brush/comb your hair often, spend time outside, live in an extreme climate, blow dry your hair, use heating tools, or want healthier-looking hair, hair serum is the perfect solution.
