Your Ultimate Guide To Hair Serums! | Save, Spend Or Splurge
If hair serums were a person, they would be that best friend in your life who’s there with you no matter what, takes care of you, calms you down and also makes you feel light and happy! Yes, a hair serum is thus your hair’s bff. It protects the hair from harmful UV rays, smoothens it, acts as a heat protectant, tames the frizz, all this without making your hair feel oily and heavy!
Its important to invest in a good hair serum as today we all are prone to hair damage and breakage. No one likes unruly hair. If you have curls, you want them to be soft and shiny as much as someone with straight hair would want their straight texture to be enhanced and shiny. Remember, shampoo ads only focus on the process of cleansing the hair and conditioning it. Post wash care is extremely essential and serums are the perfect products for this purpose.
When it comes to skin, you must’ve heard that post bath moisturising is the most effective as the dampness of your body drinks up all the moisturiser and gives you better results. The same thing happens with your hair. When its damp, it soaks up all the serum that you use hence giving you ultra smooth results.
In this video, you will know about the different hair serums for different budget types so that its easy for you to find your perfect type!
The best way to make the serum work is night washes. Before you go to bed, wash your hair normally - shampoo and conditioner. Its advisable to use cold water to wash your conditioner off as it helps add shine to your hair and seals the moisture the conditioner has offered. Now, pump some serum on your palms and rub your palms to warm the product up. Apply it across the length of your hair going from mid to the ends. If you have curly or wavy hair, scrunch your hair using the serum instead of pulling it downwards. If you have straight hair, gently pull it downwards. Sleep when your hair is damp. You will wake up with soft, shiny, smooth hair that we you just won’t stop touching! If your hair is a little frizzy and you’re heading out, use a little serum to tame the frizz. Don’t overuse the product as it can cause your hair to feel sticky.
If you don’t have a serum, hop to your nearest drugstore or a beauty store and get your hands on a hair serum for your hair type!
