Question 1: What is a hair serum?
Hair serum is a liquid-based hair care formula that you can apply to your hair after washing it. It builds a protective coating over the hair strands. While shampoos and conditioners cleanse and moisturize your hair, hair serum acts as a nourishing and hydrating agent. It creates a protective shield on the hair strands, repair them, protecting them against the sun, dirt and pollution. And along with all that, serums make your hair smooth, soft, manageable and frizz-free.
Question 2: What are the benefits of hair serum?
Hair serums are an easy and instant way to smoothen hair, manage frizziness and detangle curly hair. Just a few drops of serum can add shine to your hair.
Question 3: Are all the hair serums the same? How to choose one?
No, there are different types of hair serums for different hair goals. Depending on the product’s formulation, a hair serum might reduce frizz, add shine, shield hair from the sun and protect from pollution. For frizz-free hair, choose our anti-frizz hair serum that is enriched with ingredients such as chamomile, jojoba and argan. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, choose our hair serum that offers sun protection.

Question 4: How to use hair serum?
First of all, choose a hair serum that suits your hair type and meets your hair goal. Since hair serums work best on clean hair, use them only after washing your hair with shampoo and a conditioner. Remember, hair serum primarily acts as a nourishing agent. Take a few drops of serum on your palm, rub them together in your hands and gently apply them all over your hair. Start from the midsection of your hair and work it downwards to the tip. For the best results, use a compatible shampoo and conditioner in the same haircare range. And remember, not all serums are for the scalp. So, make sure you read the directions carefully!
Question 5: What is the difference between hair oil and hair serum?
Hair oil is is a formulation that needs to be washed off your hair. Oils, nourish the scalp and hair and adds shine to it.
