All About Hair Serums

If you've never heard about hair serums before, well, you're not alone. Hair serums have only been popular for a few years, unlike other hair products like hairsprays or hair oils.

Nevertheless, hair serums are an amazing little product that certainly deserves a spot in your regular hair care regimen. Curious? In today's article, we'll be talking all about this miracle product: what are they and what are their benefits?


What Are Hair Serums?

Hair serums are a more concentrated form of hair product that protects and moisturizes hair by coating the entire surface of your strands. This helps keep out harmful substances in the atmosphere and the environment, all the while keeping in all the moisture.

In addition to this, there are also different kinds that are suitable for different hair types and different hair issues. The best type of hair serum for you, of course, is one that suits your situation better than any other type.

Also, they are a bit similar to hair oils, except the former works on a surface level while the latter works by deeply nourishing and moisturizing the hair from within.

What Are The Benefits?

This wonder-in-a-bottle offers plenty of benefits to your strands. Just like hair oils, they are designed to improve your hair's condition with consistent use.

Here are some of the benefits of hair serums for your hair.

Protects your hair against exposure

Since hair serums work on a surface level, their main job is to protect your locks, be it from the sun, from pollution, or just from the environment in general.

If you live in a humid environment, for example, your hair may tend to get frizzy when you're outside.

Hair serums can combat this by coating your strands in a protective layer that keeps all the good things – moisture, hydration – in while keeping all the bad things – pollution, UV rays – out.

Keep your hair moisturized

As mentioned above, hair serums can help keep your crowning glory hmoisturized by keeping all the moisture in your strands.

No matter how much you condition your hair, if you always spend your time out in the sun, your hair is bound to become dry again. Hair serums can help avoid that problem by thoroughly protecting your hair, helping to keep it smooth, soft, and frizz-free no matter how bad the weather gets.

Solve specific hair issues

Hair serums can solve specific hair issues too. For example, there are some that protect dehydrated hair, some that are specifically for colored hair, some that are for permed hair, and so on and so forth.

When choosing the right serum for your hair, make sure to determine the root cause of the problem first.

For example, if you're suffering from frizz, that doesn't mean you should automatically reach for the serum for frizzy hair. If you're suffering from frizz because you have permed hair, it's probably much better to get a serum that's formulated for permed hair instead of frizzy hair. It's much better and definitely more effective to address the root cause of the problem than deal with the symptoms one by one.

As you can see, hair serums can be an absolute lifesaver, especially if you're dealing with some pesky hair-related issues. For more articles related to this, don't forget to check out our ZALA blog!
