What is hair serum?

What is hair serum?

Are you tired of the mess that comes from having endless hair products cluttering our bathrooms and damaging our hair? Are you looking for a product that truly delivers and meets your needs to nourish and style, all in one go? If you’re hopelessly searching for that one multipurpose miracle product that can do it all, look no further.

Hair serum is here! It’s a fabulous hybrid of a styling product and restorative hair care. Here’s why it just might be the key to revamping and conditioning your hair. It’s the perfect solution to your styling needs. Whether it’s waking up with bedhead, taming frizz, or simply bringing luster back to dry ends, a hair serum can work its magic instantly, giving you lustrous locks within seconds.

What is hair serum?

Just like skin serums, Hair La Vie Serum and similar products are formulated with active ingredients like vitamin E and D3 to improve the health and appearance of your hair. Instead of using basic styling products like hair gels and pomades that do little to actually improve your hair, you can use a serum before you shower as a treatment or on dry hair for styling.

What is the difference between hair oil and serum?

Sure, hair oil and serum may have similar textures, but they’re not the same. Hair serums are intended to be used as a styling product: to calm frizz, set hairstyles, and protect the hair. While pure oils penetrate the hair cuticle, serums work differently. 

Hair serum is a combo of an emollient oil and a silicone-based liquid that coats the hair shaft. This allows it to remain on the surface of the hair cuticle rather than be absorbed, which helps to enhance hair texture. It smooths, adds shine, and softens your hair — what else can you ask for! 

It helps to think of a serum as a quick fix or even as an addition to your conditioner or hair mask. The active ingredients like silk amino acids in hair serums work like a treatment to boost the look of elasticity. Hair serums also provide lubrication to the hair, which can help reduce friction and tangles.

Benefits of hair serum

In addition to nurturing, hair serum reflects light to give hair a lustrous look. The oils also add moisture and protect your hair from the drying effects of the sun and harsh chemicals in styling products. 

Hair serum can be an essential part of your daily hair care routine. Shampoos, while cleansing, can sometimes strip hair cuticles. Conditioner isn’t effective at sealing your cuticle since it's rinsed out and so a layer of serum is a must.

Hair La Vie Serum

Of course, not all hair serums are created equal. Maybe you’ve used some in the past and found some to be too sticky.  We set out to create a lightweight and invisible shield for all hair types! It’s formulated to work beautifully on every mane — to hydrate and style curls, soften waves and replenish fine, straight strands. 

Hair La Vie Serum is a unique, light blend of rich jojoba, coconut, and argan oil. The oils give hair a gorgeous sheen and provide nutrients and proteins to strengthen hair while also making it appear fuller.

How to use it

We suggest starting with a dime-size amount, first melting it with your hands, then working it through the hair and concentrating on the ends. You can use it on wet or dry hair. If you need a little help with detangling, you might want to use it on wet hair after showering, which will make your hair prone to less damage. If you regularly use heat styling on your hair, serums should be a part of your hair care after you use heat tools. Blow drying can really parch our strands, so add a few drops afterward to deflate frizz and add a weightless and bouncy silkiness. A little goes a long way, and it’s fast-absorbing and non-greasy.

Final thoughts

Over time, your tresses will feel stronger and more manageable. As a bonus, Hair La Vie Serum smells amazingly like vanilla, sandalwood, and rose. Your hair will be so touchable and smooth, this will feel like it was sent to you by your fairy godmother, and it might as well have been. So, why settle for endless one-trick pony hair products when you can smooth Hair Serum through your tresses and feel like you’ve just discovered liquid gold! Go ahead; you deserve to shine.
