If you can get your hands on a good quality hair serum, your life will become easier. But most of the people are confused about its application and their quality. Application of hair serum is very easy but you need to know the right techniques to properly apply it.
So, here are some of the dos and don’ts of hair serum application that you should know:
1. Apply the serum from end to the mid-section
The serums should be applied from the end of the hair to the midsection of the hair. If you start from the hair roots, the chemicals in the serum may damage your hair follicles. Therefore, you should lather the serum from the ends and work upwards instead of just massaging your scalp with it. This does not work like hair oils.
2. Heat the serum by rubbing it on your palm for few seconds
Instead of putting more time on lathering the serum on your hair, you should rub it in your hand. Do it for 5-6 seconds, till the serum liquefies a bit and heats up properly. After that, you should apply it on your hair properly from the ends to the midsection of your hair.
3. Find the most suitable serum for your hair type
Don’t buy a hair serum just because it is marketed and advertised as a good product for the hair. The serum should be suitable for your hair type and condition otherwise it will have negative results. Every hair type requires different products and the same applies for hair serums as well. For example, people with fine hair should go for lighter hair serums as the heavy ones might make their hair oilier.
4. Never over-apply
Only use a pea-sized amount of serum if you have fine hair and quarter-size quantity if you have thick hair. If you apply it too much it may cause damage to your hair. Also make sure you do not use hair serums daily. It may deteriorate the texture and health of the hair.
5. Apply it only on washed hair
The hair serum protects hair from dust but you can maximize this effect by applying it on washed hair. Apply it on your damp hair and then use other styling products to set your hair in place.
Hair serums generally act as a treatment for the problems you are having whether it’s a hair serum or a skin serum. So, it’s always advisable to use these products according to your hair type and requirements. Using the wrong product may worsen the situation.
