Hair Care

Come summers and hair troubles begin – dryness, frizzy mess and more. Having oily hair is extra annoying, because more the oil, more the washing and more the dryness. This dryness triggers more oil production and the cycle continues. Here is where the serum for oily hair comes into picture. Hair oils and serums can have a balanced relationship between each other. One can reduce the oil production by using serums that reduce frizz and provide moisture.

1. Kerastase Elixir Ultime Hair Serum:

This is the Holy Grail hair serum for so many women. So far it has proven to be the best hair serum for oily hair. It can be used pre-wash and post wash too. It comes in a pretty packaging and is travel friendly. It has multi benefits too – pre wash treatment, post wash serum, deep conditioner and a frizz minimizer all rolled into one.

2. Dove Nourishing Oil Care Serum:

Dove is the trusted brand for many of us for a reason. The nourishing oil care serum is one of the best hair serums for oily hair. With a wonderful fragrance and an economical tag, this serum reduces frizz and conditions dry hair. It minimizes fly aways too. It is easily available in pharmacies and groceries alike.

3. Matrix Biolage Smoothing Hair Serum:

Matrix is a professional range and yes, the results are pro too. The smoothing serum is one of my favorites. It has always been my go-back-when-hair-misbehaves serum. It contains avocado extracts that are popularly known to tame frizz and dryness.

4. Loreal Smooth Intense Serum:

This is yet another favorite of mine. Loreal Smooth Intense serum is the most suggested hair serum for rebonded hair and also for oily hair that turns into a frizzy mess. The argan oil in it is the magic potion that helps handle dryness in oily hair.

5. Livon Silky Potion:

Livon was on the first brands that brought in the concept of serums and it was the first product that I tried too.  Livon is a decent hair serum and smells divine. It contains Vitamin E and a special CutiSoft formula that helps soften hair. It is easily available in departmental stores and pharmacies too.

This is my current serum, and boy, it does a great job handling my hair. I have an oily scalp and dry hair, and this serum definitely reduces frizz. It is affordable and a coin sized amount is enough for all my hair. It contains fruit vitamins to give a shine and soften hair.

Garnier products claims of strengthening continue here too. This serum contains avocado oil and grape seed oil for its frizz minimizing qualities. It also helps with breakage of hair. Garnier Fructis Strengthening serum is easily available in all medical stores and departmental stores alike.

8. Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum:

The Body Shop grape seed glossing serum is a much raved serum among beauty bloggers. It contains sesame oil and grapeseed oil, and provides excellent moisture without a greasy effect. In my opinion, this is a wise choice if you have a combination of oily scalp and dry hair.

9. Wella High Hair Gloss Serum:

Professional ranges have a way of managing hair concerns and they do it the best. Wella High hair gloss serum is perfect for you if your hair concerns are dry hair, frizz and a fly aways.

Hi, I'm Sophia and welcome to my blog.

I have always been obsessed with hair. I have wavy, frizzy hair and I've been straigtening it since I was 12. I have changed my hair at least a hundred times over the years, trying new colors and tones, and falling victim of that 'new trendy haircut'. But after all, I realised it doesn't matter how you hair is, as long as it is HEALTHY.

I created this blog to share everything that I have learned about how to care for your hair and to help others who need a hand finding the best tips and products.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something to help you along the way.
