Serums are great for strengthening your hair and your scalp. They can also aid in the styling process by smoothing frizzy hair, adding shine and moisture into your hair. Some serums may even reduce breakage and split ends and help repair thinning and damaged hair. When looking for a new serum, you might be wondering, what ingredients should you look for?
Look for silicones in hair serums. Silicones coat hair and protect your strands from damage caused by hot styling tools, the sun, and other environmental factors. Silicones also help hair to appear more moisturized and shinier. The only downside is that using silicone-filled products a lot can cause buildup, so make sure you use a clarifying shampoo every week or so.
Another ingredient to look for in serums is sealants. Sealants work just like they sound. They seal in the moisture and nourish your hair. Many sealants contain Shea butter which is known for creating softness. They also protect your hair against damage.
Proteins are also important because they help repair damaged hair, help strengthen hair, and protect it from damage. Proteins can also help reduce frizz. Just like you should make sure to get enough protein in your diet, you should look for proteins in your hair care products.
You should also look for essential fats and oils to smooth and moisturize your hair. You may find coconut oil, almond oil, or avocado oil in your serums. In addition to moisturizing, oils can also help promote hair growth.
