Hair Serum 101

Finding the right hair serum can work wonders and even streamline your steps to having healthier looking locks – and there’s been so much buzz and excitement around our latest innovation, Glow shine infuse serum. We gathered some pro-tips on how to use this award-winning, lightweight, silicone-free formula on all hair types.

WHAT IS A HAIR SERUM?

Similar to a skincare serum, a hair serum is a concentrated treatment that works by penetrating the hair cuticle to combat a variety of common concerns.

Glow is formulated with a blend of naturally derived oils, making it the ultimate multi-tasker.

HOW DOES GLOW DIFFER FROM AG’S THE OIL?

While similar in look and feel, a few key differences can help determine which formula is right for you.

 

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A SERUM?

If used correctly, a hair serum can benefit all hair types, and is especially effective for those suffering from dehydrated locks.

If your hair is oily, make sure the serum is only applied to the ends of freshly washed hair to nourish, add shine and seal the cuticle.

If your hair is dry, apply more liberally, starting at your ends and working your way up. Re-apply on second-day hair to restore shine.

Glow can also be used in lieu of a hairspray to provide a sleek finish and lock out frizz and flyaways. Simply emulsify 1-2 drops between your palms and smooth over hair.
