It's time to put some shine back in your hair

We’re pretty used to putting it on our face, so when it comes to picking out a hair serum, you might feel a bit stumped and wonder why you need a serum for your hair. You already know the best shampoo and conditioner for your hair type, own the best hair oil and you’ve even mastered the art of air drying to preserve the condition of your locks. What’s a hair serum going to do?

While a hair oil will penetrate your hair and moisturise it, hair serums work wonders on giving the surface your locks that healthy, shiny appearance, as well as calming down the frizz factor and repairing any breakages. So when you consider how much money we spend on our hair in our lifetime, it’s really important that you find the right one.

A good hair serum can also protect your locks from the effects of the environment, from sun damage to pollutants. Take Aveda’s Sun Care Protective Hair Veil, for example. Sun exposure can damage your hair’s quality and colour, as well as drying it out, but this water-resistant formula provides hair with a protective UV barrier that lasts for up to 16 hours. Not bad, eh?

If it’s dull or lacklustre hair that’s your problem, you want a serum that’s optimised for giving your hair hella shine. Swedish-born brand Sachajuan’s Shine Serum is just that, sealing split ends with a non-greasy formula that’s packed with essential minerals and algae. Thanks to its light reflecting properties, it’ll cause levels of shine you only thought possible on shampoo adverts – until now that is.
