What are hair serums?
Hair serums are a boon in the world of trichology. This silicon-based liquid, coats the hair and nourishes it from within. In simple words, a hair serum protects, adds?lustre and keeps hair healthy. Different hair serums in India have varied product combinations to serve various purposes. Overall, the goal is the same – protect the hair from damage and add a glossy finish that is oil-free.
You can warm up some hair serum between your palms and apply it along the length of your hair (without touching the scalp), immediately after hair wash or you can use the hair serum just prior to styling. As mentioned earlier, each product will come with a different package of claims and ingredients. Some hair serums are more like a nourishing oil, except that they do not let your hair soaking with a greasy look. While some come with a load full of benefits, such as; protection against dust, pollution, humidity, heat damage from using hair styling appliances, UV protection, anti-frizz properties, etc. The choice is yours, to pick the product that would suit your need the best. That being said, here are the best choices of hair serums for you to make a wise pick from.
