If you ask us for one product that could solve all your hair problems right from dryness to frizziness and ultimately to styling, we would undoubtedly suggest a Hair Serum. It is that perfect product that would give you all the benefits in one. Just think how easy it is to use the product. It can be applied to wet as well as dry hair. When applied to wet hair it can help detangle the hair without any fuss. On the other hand, when applied to dry hair it is the best companion in taming that frizz.
If you are new to the world of hair serum, this all may seem a little too much right? How can just one product provide so many benefits? But it surely does. To your rescue, we are sharing a guide to frizzy hair, hair serums, their benefits, and the best serum for frizzy and dry hair that is easily available in the Indian market and works.
Frizzy Hair – What It Is; How Serums Help?
Frizzy hair is nothing but the effect of individual hair fibers moving in all different directions. Therefore, they are super rough to touch. As a result of this, the hair looks and feels very dry and frizzy rather than looking smooth, tamed, and defined. The hair becomes frizzy when the cuticle layer of the hair is lifted. This allows moisture to move through it and eventually swells up the hair strands.
So, what is the cuticle layer?
The cuticle layer of the hair is the outermost layer of the hair strand that helps in protecting the inner layers of the hair. You might see almost everyone around you raving about the benefits of hair serum. But, do they work? The answer is yes. Some of them do. So, let’s begin with what a hair serum is and how it helps in managing the hair.
Hair Serum – What It Is and How Does It Help?
Similar to skin serums, hair serums are created with different active ingredients that penetrate deep into the hair. These ingredients help in controlling frizz, taming unruly hair, and protecting the hair from other factors. As we all know, oils help in providing nourishment to the scalp. Similarly, hair serums work on the surface of the hair. Therefore, they are considered to be a quick fix and maybe a replacement for your regular conditioner. Below mentioned are some benefits that hair serums provide:
- Controls frizz
- Helps in Detangling
- Controls frizz
- Adds shine to hair
- Makes the hair Manageable
- Protects the hair from other factors
- Repairs hair damage
How to Apply a Hair Serum
- Applying hair serum is very easy. You need to start with the ends of your hair.
- Now, just work your way up to the mid-lengths of your hair.
- Hair serum isn’t needed to apply to your scalp as it can make the scalp and hair oily (It can also result in product buildup).
Note: Remember, it is quite difficult for your hair ends to get moisture and therefore shine, so be generous with the hair serum on your hair ends!
