Some hair serums have gotten a bad reputation – mostly because women with fine hair are frustrated by oily products that weigh their hair down for days. But there are tons of different products out there which help your hair look and feel luxurious without the grease. The key is to use them correctly. Here are a few tips for using hair serum, according to Allure magazine.
1. Use before you blow dry. Just use a pea-sized amount of a smoothing product like Leonor Greyl – Huile de Palme (For Dry Hair, protects from sun & water) just on the dry ends of your hair. Don’t get close to your roots at all.
2. Grab a serum like Hamadi – Healing Serum and put a dime-sized amount on your hair at night. Stay away from your roots, then put your hair up before bed and you’ll have soft, wavy tresses in the morning.
3. Use a tiny drop of serum as a spot treatment on your frizzy areas. It won’t weigh your hair down like an all-over product.
4. For any hairstyle, a drop of oil can add tons of shine. Try slicking your hair back into a ponytail and rubbing a bit over the crown and the tail. You’ll be instantly sleek without looking greasy.
