Hair Serum

Posted on: March 25, 2009

What is a hair serum? What is it used for? And most importantly can you make it yourself?

What Is A Hair Serum?
Hair serum makes the hair shiner and does not allow them to entangle. It protects the hair from the damages done by over exposure to sun and hair styling products. The effect of the serum application remains till the next wash. It should be applied after a hair wash.

How does a hair serum work?
The hair serum forms a thin protective layer on the hair strands. It returns the moisture lost due to exposure to sun, heat generated from the hair styling gadgets. It is used to set broken and frizzy hair.

It is available in the form of sprays in the market. It is primarily used for dry and frizzy hair, which breaks easily, or hairs that have under gone excessive chemical treatments like perming, coloring.

The hair serum provides nourishment to the hair, which makes them strong, and they don ‘t break away easily. It also conditions the hair, which makes them healthy, silky and shiny.
