What are hair serums and why should you use them?
These are 2 of the most commonly asked questions when It comes to serums.
To be honest most professional hair serum will do the same thing….
Protect the hair from environmental aggressors,Dust and heat and most importantly add Shine to the hair.
Tame Frizz and make the hair feel good.
But I want you to know that serum that are made of,silicone based extracts
amino acids and ceramides act as a plastic wrap on the hair this is what makes the hair feel good and tames the fly aways!
Serums are a quick fix to treat the hair at the surface so if you want to treat damaged cuticles you need a different oil that works on the inside condition.
Now that you know exactly what your purchasing I want to share with you my favourite serums on the market

When applying your serum work on the ends first and follow into mid lengths
Finishing serums/Oils are not for scalp area.
When applying the oil work it into your hands and leave ingredients to setle for a few minutes before applying to hair.
Find a serum that works for you and you’ll never look back.
