It depends on the type of hair you have and your desired hairstyle. Generally, oils are best for dry or damaged hair while serums can be used to add shine and control frizz.
Oils are an excellent option for those with dry, brittle hair. Oils can help to lock in moisture, reduce frizz and split ends, and make the hair look more lustrous and healthy. The most popular oils used on hair are coconut oil, argan oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, almond oil and avocado oil. Each of these has its own unique benefits which should be considered when choosing one. For example; coconut oil is excellent at moisturizing while argan oil helps to protect against damage caused by heat styling tools like blow-dryers or flat irons. Jojoba Oil is particularly beneficial for scalp health as it helps to balance sebum production (oil secretion) from your scalp. Olive Oil is great at conditioning the scalp as well as providing moisture for those with naturally curly textured hair helping them maintain their desired hairstyle without having to use harsh chemicals or treatments that often strip away natural oils from the strands causing further damage over time. Almond Oil works very similarly to olive but may not be suitable if you suffer from nut allergies! Finally Avocado Oil provides a good amount of vitamins A & E which help keep the strands nourished while also keeping breakage at bay due to its fatty acid content!
On the other hand serums are best suited towards oily or fine haired individuals who need added control over their style without weighing down their locks too much – making them appear greasy throughout the day. These products contain ingredients such as silicones which provide a protective layer around each strand giving it some shine and luster while remaining light weight enough so that styles aren’t weighed down by product build up overtime either! Additionally they can also contain additional ingredients such as proteins which help strengthen fragile tresses preventing breakage along with essential Vitamins B & C which work together in order replenish lost nutrients within damaged strands repairing them slowly back into healthier states within weeks/months depending on how deep rooted any damages were initially prior using this product type!
