7 Hair Serums You Didn’t Know You NeededJanuary 19, 2021
Not only is our skin-care stash overflowing with facial serums, but our hair-care collection is filled with ‘em too. Having a hair routine that incorporates smoothing oils, nourishing products and scalp care is key to giving our hair the TLC it needs to stay strong and healthy. From shine-boosters and color-enhancers to frizz-busters and split-end saviors, we’re rounding up our favorite hair serums that seriously work, below.
If humidity is your enemy, allow us to introduce you to your new secret weapon. This serum will help you achieve smooth, frizz-free hair. It controls static, provides heat protection and has a refreshing floral scent.
Not ready to dedicate yourself to a multi-step hair-care routine? Start with just one serum that targets multiple concerns at the same time. This Kérastase pick is perfect for shine, softness and supporting hair growth. It strengthens the hair fibers so they’re less prone to breakage and keeps hair healthy so it grows longer and thicker.
If you find yourself going through dry shampoo bottles at an alarming rate, we feel you — but we also have a solution. This rejuvenating serum removes buildup from your hair and scalp, so your hair can stay oil-free for longer. Wet your hair, target the serum on your scalp, massage through and then rinse.
Using heat sans protection on your hair translates to split ends and breakage. Keep your hair healthy by adding this Shu Uemera serum into your hair-care routine. It primes against heat while also strengthening your hair. Pro tip: Even when heat styling with protection, we recommend keeping hot tools under 400 degrees.
If you’ve completely disregarded our golden heat-protection rule (see above) up until this point, don’t worry — we have just the right hair serum for you, too. This Virtue pick helps rehab damaged hair and split ends, while also protecting hair from future damage. Packed with pea protein, hydrolyzed quinoa and baobab seed oil, the formula seals dry ends on contact and protects hair from heat damage.
The formula is specifically designed to boost hair’s radiance, revitalize color and amp up shine. You can use it as a leave-in serum or mix it in with your conditioner for a color-recharging hair mask.
We don’t know about you, but our thoughts are polarized when it comes to dry texturizing spray. We love the look, but hate the crunchy feel. That’s where the Davines This Is a Texturizing Serum comes in. It creates voluminous body, shape and texture and still leaves hair feeling soft and light.
