I thought I would share with you one of the most important steps for my hair-care. I think serums are essential for curly/afro hair (Probably other hair types too!) and I feel they really help with the management of hair, They help restore and soften the hair and...they smell nice!
I use serums after I wash my hair, I feel thats the time in which the hair locks in most of the moisture that the serums provide and when they work most effectively, however I also often use them when My hair is dry, To bring my hair back to life a little when its looking/feeling a little dull and it also helps with shine. I use it on my natural hair and also my extensions/weave.
I have tried many serums in my time, Its something within the haircare would that I love to dabble in, as i'm not really a hair-person overall but these are the ones I would repurchase and that I would defiantly recommend.
John Freida Frizz ease - Thermal protectant formula
This is the serum I have been through the most, I have repurchased this product countless times! Its one of my must-have items. I like this especially because it works when your hair is dry quite well and it has a heat protectant in it. I dont like using too many products on my hair at once so this is 2 in 1 which is helpful. it is lightweight, is only lightly fragrenced and lasts me many weeks, definatly worth the money!
Mythic oil - Colour glow oil
This is the latest serum I have tried but I love it already, mainly because it is SO lightweight, I don't like serums which feel like they are gunky and would weigh the hair down, the consistency of this one is perfect and it almost feels like a dry oil. They have three versions of mythic oil, so there is bound to be one tailored to the hair type you have but I feel this product would work for many people. Again it is lightly scented, nothing overpowering, You can use it on damp or dry hair, It makes my hair feel very soft and luscious, I defiantly recommend.
KeraCare - Essential oils
I am in LOVE with this product, This one is especially good because it is multi-purpose, you can see its not called a serum per se but 'Essential oils' and its not as 'oily' as the other serums in this post,its lighter. It is a rich blend of high quality natural oils. It disappears very quickly and easily into the area you use it, It smells like HEAVEN, it contains coconut oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil and many more, its just a delight to use! It is defiantly worth the money, I have had this for almost a month, using it regularly and you can see in the photo how much is still left.
Fantasia heat protector straightening serum
This would be the thickest serum out of all the ones I will talk about in this post, It is also scented, What I like about this product is again that it is a 2 in 1, also containing heat defence. This product has lasted me years, I use this more so in my natural hair because my natural hair just drinks up moisture and as this one is slightly thinker and is very softening its better to use on my afro hair more-so then extensions where it might make them greasy. This product has been with me for years and it does alot of good for my hair, I love the fact it contains Aloe vera.
Then we have the well-known Moroccan oil! I know many of you would already know about this product so I'll try to keep it breif but this product I feel could work for anyone, whatever hair type. I prefer to use it on damp hair as i feel on dry hair it weighs it down. The smell is phenomenal and even though it is pricey I defiantly think it is worth the money.
So there you have it! I don't usually talk about hair but I love a good serum so thought I would share, Let me know if you use any of these products, what you thought or if this made you want to try one maybe!
Hope you are all well,
