What is a Hair Serum?
Hair serum is a liquid-based formula that forms a protective layer over your hair, assisting in smoothing frizz and making the hair look smoother. The question that creates confusion is what a hair serum is and how to use a hair serum. Hair serums are great products to include in a hair care routine. Due to their frizz-fighting properties, serums are also great for taming flyaways and can help protect your hair from humidity. They help in setting hairstyles and shield the hair from environmental aggressors.
How do Hair Serums Work?
A hair serum coats your hair strands and makes your hair smoother. It is formulated with ingredients that penetrate deeper into your hair and protect them from damage. There are a lot of different hair serums available in the marketplace that promise to control frizz and add shine to your hair.

Tips on How to use a Hair Serum
How to apply hair serum is an often asked question. Serums are used on hair strands after washing the hair & before any styling products. Unlike shampoos & conditioners, they’re left on the hair throughout the day. Also, they’re not applied to the scalp but just the length of the hair. Serums are slightly thicker in consistency. So instead of taking it in your palms and quickly rubbing it on the hair, let the serum stay in your palms for 5-6 seconds. This helps the serum soften up and glide smoothly all over the hair.
Here are some Do’s and Don’ts that should be taken care of:
- Apply on damp, washed hair.
Hair serum should always be applied to damp and washed hair. The clean and washed hair helps the serum to slide through the hair evenly and is more effective.
- Do not use hair serum daily
Limit the use of serums to the days you wash your hair. But if you have extremely unmanageable and frizzy hair, you can use an oil-based serum every day as well.
- Use before blow-drying your hair
Hair serum forms a protective layer around your hair, shielding it from the harmful effects of heat and other styling products. So, applying it before using a straightener or curling iron can prevent hair from being damaged.
- Avoid Applying on the scalp if you have an oily scalp
The oily scalp has natural oils already present in the scalp. If the hair serum is applied to the scalp it becomes heavily greasy and can make your hair look more oily. Therefore, serums should always be applied to hair strands.
- Apply one pump of the serum
- A little can go a long way. If too much of it is applied, it makes the hair look excessively greasy and limp. A pearl-sized amount should be sufficient for your hair to look fresh and frizz-free.
Hair serums have defensive and reparative properties making them an essential part of your hair care routine.
How to choose a Hair Serum?
The serums that are made with DEA/TEA, Phenoxyethanol, PEGs, and other harmful chemicals can damage hair and make it more frizzy. Choose the serums that are toxin, sulphate-free, gentle, and safe for your hair. The ones that are rich in proteins work the best because proteins are the lifeline of your hair strands. Your hair strands are made up of a protein called keratin. Lack of protein can lead to hair loss and damage.
Different serums in the market address different concerns like dry hair, frizzy hair, thinning hair, oily hair, etc.
