DIY – The Hair Growth Hair Serum For All Hair Types

Anything that helps in making hair smooth and put together is a must-have in our busy lives. Hair serums are one such product that brings life to hair.  There are various types and brands, but as most commercial products, they’re a pump full of chemicals: parabens, preservatives, and other nasties that are not healthy for your hair in the long run. Going organic or whipping one at home is a far better option.  Before getting into the DIY, let us understand what hair serums are and how they work.

What is a Hair Serum?

Hair serums are a silicone-based product that coats the hair surface. It does not work like oil as it does not penetrate the hair cuticles or change the structure. Hair serums at best enhance your natural curls and smooth your hair down. Furthermore, hair serums also help to reduce the loss of hair by protecting the shaft and providing a protective barrier against heat damage.

How Does A Hair Serum Work?

The purpose of hair serum is to make your hair smooth, free of frizz and tangles, and to make it shinier. Moreover, good hair serum will also protect your hair against the sun’s harsh rays and the pollutants (dust, car exhaust fumes, and grim) from damaging your hair.

Why You Need A Hair Serum In Your Life?

Following are some of the reasons why you need a hair serum to be part of your life:

  1. Shinier healthy-looking locks with little to no tangles. Shinier locks are the ultimate hair goal. It also tames frizz and handles flyaway.
  2. Hair serums protect against dust and humidity.
  3. Low pH level holds the hair together, prevents it from getting damaged.
  4. Moisturizes and repairs hair damaged from repeated coloring. It also promotes the production of natural oils and therefore endorses hair growth.
  5. Prevents hair from losing moisture (getting too dry). Dry hair feels parched and rough giving it a dull, lifeless look. Hair serums provide a touchable softness and luster without making hair look shabby.
  6. It provides the best protection against heat either from the sun or from styling tools. Heat makes hair brittle. A spritz of hair serum will make your hair soft and hydrated.

With all these benefits provided by hair serums, why wouldn’t you want to keep one handy? Below is a list of ingredients and what makes them unique in using them to make a DIY hair serum. Let’s have a look at their benefits first.
