Serums and Ampoules
Hair Serums: How are They Used?
We've already incorporated facial serums into our beauty routine, but did you know there are also hair serums?
What is a Hair Serum?
A serum is a concentrated blend of active ingredients specially developed for hair care, although it's not a shampoo, conditioner, or even a mask. This liquid product, sometimes a bit gel-like, comes from various plant oils. Originally, serums contained silicones to smooth the hair and make it soft. Silicones have given way to natural ingredients for the same effectiveness: today, serums contain vitamins and essential fatty acids that help nourish, provide elasticity, and shine to the hair.
What is the Purpose of Hair Serum?
Hair serum can serve many functions. First and foremost, it's an essential finishing touch to protect the most sensitive areas of the hair: the mid-lengths and ends. It deposits a protective film that plays a shielding role with the hair, but not only that. This filter will also smooth the cuticles, thus reflecting light better to bring more shine. The serum provides intense hydration that can restore the shine and elasticity of the hair. There are also serums to stimulate hair growth, combat oily hair, straighten hair, repair damage caused by the sun, or chemical treatments. Serums can also be applied preventively to keep the hair as healthy as possible or to stimulate hair growth.
Who is Hair Serum For?
For everyone! All hair types can use a hair serum, as long as it is suitable for their needs and the desired goal (repair, straighten, add shine, etc.) Serums are basically for all hair types that need immediate care. For curly, kinky, fine, dull, split ends, brittle, straight, or colored hair.
How to Use Hair Serum?
Whether for a final treatment application, on the length or the scalp, a serum contains highly concentrated and rich active ingredients: there is no need to apply tons. Apply sparingly to the hair, without drowning the scalp or lengths, with the risk of overburdening the hair. The serum is applied to wet or dry hair.
