It is best to apply serum on damp, towel-dried hair. Doing so helps the serum evenly spread and penetrate the strands for maximum benefit.
Serum is essentially a lightweight oil that helps to smooth the cuticle of each strand, providing hydration and nourishment. It also acts as a barrier against heat styling tools, so its important to use serum before blow-drying or using hot irons on hair.
Serums come in many different formulas depending on your hair needs. If you have dry or brittle strands then look for products with hydrating ingredients such as argan oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oil or shea butter. These will help add moisture back into your locks while also creating a protective layer around them to prevent further damage from heat styling. For those with oily scalp or fine hair types there are lighter serums available which won’t weigh down your strands but still provide enough protection and shine without making them greasy. Additionally some serums are specifically formulated for color treated hair so that they can help keep the color vibrant for longer periods of time by locking in nutrients and protecting against fading due to sun exposure and other environmental factors.
When applying serum make sure you start from the middle of the shaft all the way down towards the ends where most of our split ends occur – this is because these areas tend to be drier than our roots usually are! Gently work through sections until evenly distributed throughout your entire head of hair before proceeding with any other styling method like straightening or curling etc.. Lastly dont forget about focusing on those hard-to-reach spots at the nape area too if left untreated they can become extra frizzy over time!
