You may want to consider adding serums to your hair care routine.

When it comes to taming flyaways and frizz, hair serums will be your hair BFF. Cause even the healthiest and most manageable hair can be prone to flyaways and frizz — especially when the weather is warm and humid. Hair serums, when used together with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner, are probably one of our favorite products at quickly turning our buhaghag hair into a smooth, shiny, and manageable mane.

Curious to know more? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Cause we’re listing the benefits of hair serum and why you need it in your hair routine ASAP!

Benefits of applying hair serums

TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops

Smooth, shiny hair

Ever wondered how to get your hair looking smooth and shiny? Well the secret is simple: a drop of serum for hair smoothed through the strands. It’s the perfect finishing touch for sleek straight hairstyles or glam waves.

Prevents Split Ends

We all know the mantra: get a hair trim every 4-6 weeks to keep your hair in tip-top condition. But what do you do between salon visits — especially when you’re trying to grow out your hair? Well, hair serums work magic on dry, damaged by temporarily sealing and binding hair cuticles. They’re also great at preventing split ends of happening in the first place by coating your hair with a protective layer that withstands the daily styling.

Tames Frizz

We can’t stress this enough. Hair serums are great at combating the frizz. Use it post-styling to help your hairstyle remain frizz-free no matter the weather. But take note: a little serum goes a long way. Be careful and don’t apply too much. While serums are great — too much hair serum can weigh down your style and make it look like a tired, oily mess by the end of the day.

Protects hair

Hair serums are formulated to leave a moisturizing layer on the hair shaft that help smooth cuticles to prevent frizz and flyaways, while leaving a glossy finish. But much like most styling products, hair serums also come in various formulation. There are some serums that help protect hair heat damage while treating your hair from the effects of heat styling. So assess your hair needs and find the right hair serum for you.

How To Apply Hair Serums

Hair serums are a quick, no-fuss way to add gloss and shine to your hair. But applying it the wrong way can easily ruin your hairstyle. So here’s how you should be applying serum on your hair.

Step 1: Apply hair serum as the last step of your hairstyling.

Step 2: You never want to pump the product directly on your hair. You want to be able to control the amount to ensure optimal results. So simply pump about 1 or a half pump of the product on our palm (the amount really depends on your hair length — but the general rule of thumb is to never go beyond 1 pump)

Step 3: Then, rub your palms together to heat it up. This allows the product to better absorb into your hair.

Step 4: Focusing on the ends of your hair, gently run your palms through your hair — but staying away from the roots.

Step 5: Finally, smooth any leftover product along the top of your hair to seal in shine.

If you want to ensure that the hair serum is evenly distributed through your hair, you may also apply it on wet hair pre-styling. But remember to stay away from the roots to prevent oily strands through the day.

So if you’re ready to add hair serums to your haircare routine, you may want to consider TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops. It adds intense polish to any glamorous look. It prevents frizz and flyaways for a silky feel and glossy finish.
