Greasy hair is far from being glamorous, but serums are a key product in keeping your frizzy and dry strands hydrated(regardless of your hair texture). Rather than focusing on hyped up products, you should consider what benefits the serum can provide for you as a consumer. Whether you are looking for heat protectant or to enhance the bounce and shine of your hair, keep in mind that serums have different formulations that will determine the desired outcome of your overall visual appeal. That being said, hair serums should be applied with a LIGHT hand and when necessary.
Below, are a list of some of my favorite hair serums in the market! If you have one that you love and I missed it, please feel free to comment!
As you can guess by the name, this barely-there potion relies on moringa seed oil, bamboo extract, and hydrolyzed soy protein for a lightweight sheen coating. It also aids to detangle any snarls and acts as a heat protectant as well.
Unwash’s formula also works amazingly well as a leave-in detangling spray. I personally love it on chemically-treated or double-processed colored hair because it gives it more shine and makes it incredibly soft.
Everyone I recommend to use this loves this natural oil because it contains vitamins and nutrients that hydrate while smoothing the hair. Fun fact, it can be used as an additive to your favorite conditioner to intensify moisturization.
This serum is so good, it won 2016 Beauty Product of the year and it is for good reason! It is not only fast-absorbing, but it’s also useful for all hair types looking to dominate frizziness. It smells like absolute heaven, too!
Most reviews describe Ouai’s hair oil as “a lightweight, multitasking oil that fights frizz, prevents heat and UV damage, and delivers a high-gloss, super-smooth finish to all hair types.” Plus, the scent is ABSOLUTE amazingness, with notes of violet, gardenia, ylang ylang, and white musk.
Put this 2014 Best of Beauty-winning Bumble and Bumble oil in your hands, then put it in your hair and it seems to fade but that doesn’t mean it’s not working. You’ll be pleased to see it adds moisture, detangles, and softens your hair without making it feel greasy. It’ll also give your hair protection from UV rays and heat damage.
