How to and What to use Hair Serum For

What is Hair Serum?

Hair serum is the most advanced nurture for your hair… there are different types for different hair problems.
There is a serum to protect the hair from getting damaged from too much sun exposure, all the way to a serum for hair loss. The product stays in your hair until you wash it, so every time you wash your hair you need to re-apply it.


What are the most common hair problems that require serum?

Usually, the most common problem is hair loss, next comes the known as “frizzy hair”, and then the breakable hair, usually generated from hair styling gadgets. Or even those hairs which had an excessive chemical exposure, like hair coloring.  But for each problem exists a solution.

For example,
- for hair loss, people need a serum to makes the hair grow stronger.
- for the frizzy hair, a solution to generate a protective layer avoiding the humid conditions which leads to the “wild hair”.
- for dry/colored hair, a serum to make it smoother.

Or a protective product to apply whenever you use a hair dryer or a flat/curling iron, to avoid the hair getting all “burned up” from the extreme heat from those gadgets. The frequent use of those hair styling tools, it makes the hair get all dryed up and the ends tend to become more breakable.


How to choose the best Hair Serum for you condition?

To get better results, you need to make sure you go to a hair salon, consult a hair expert or stylist before you get a serum. Using the wrong serum in a “open road” to permanent damage to your hair. Get the right advices from the right people!
The hair salons tend to have the right products for our hair problems, although they manage to be too expensive if you need a long time application. Try to get a “cheaper alternative” but even so a “correct” serum to prevent more expensive problems later on.


Tips for Hair Serum Application

- Avoid using your finger tips to spread the serum. Use a paddle brush instead, to get a more even application.

- If you notice a excessive dryness on the day after the application, stop using it. Stylists claim that only certain types of hair react like that. To prevent more problems, stop the application.

- It’s not the serum that will take care of your hair, you have a part in this too. Consume fruits, and a healthy diet, drink plenty of water, and get the 8 hours of sleep.

- Use a good shampoo and conditioner too. Products which suit your hair type will only benefit the results.

- Start from the middle! Avoid the scalp/roots area! It’s common to start from the top of our hair, like we do when we apply our shampoo or conditioner. But hair serums are different. The natural oils generated from our scalp will take care of our roots, so if you apply serum on the top your hair will immediately look all oily and dirty. So start from the ear-level to the ends.

- Use it on wet hair. The hair gets delicate when it’s all wet, so be careful applying the serum. For the control of the frizzy hair for example, the application on the wet hair will present results when the hair is all dried up.
