All you wanted to know about hair serum

When hair serum hit the market, it was almost like a magic potion for all those who had been battling with dry and frizzy hair.

The liquid does transform your hair from dull and rough to shiny and manageable in a matter of seconds! Ever wondered how exactly it works? Unlike coconut oil, which penetrates the cuticle and makes changes to the hair structure temporarily, hair serum, which is silicon based only coats the surface of your hair. It makes the hair reflect more light, thus making it shine more, and protects it from external factors such as dust, heat and humidity. It is the lubrication provided by the liquid which helps untangle hair making it manageable.

However, several factors need to be kept in mind while using hair serum...

1. Make sure you consult a good stylist or hair expert before choosing one. Using a substandard product is a sure-fire way of causing permanent damage to hair. Although they are not easily available in the market, there are salons which have specific serums for chemically treated hair, coloured hair etc.

2. Avoid using your fingertips to spread the serum. Ideally, serum should be spread evenly through the hair with a paddle brush. Avoid application to the roots.

3. While the hair serum is not known to bring out any side-effects so far, keep in mind that any product with silicon is believed to be bad in the long run.

4. Users have also reported excessive dryness the day after using serum. Stylists claim that this happens only for certain types of hair, but if you find that your serum does that to your hair, stop using it immediately.

5. The healthiest route to shiny hair is to eat right. Consume fruits, drink plenty of water and get your eight hours of sleep.

6. Use a good shampoo and conditioner which suit your hair type. Avoid using harsh chemical treatments.

You are bound to have strong, shiny hair, day in and day out!
