In Singapore, our humid and hot weather requires us to take extra care of our hair. When people think of hair care products, they often think of shampoos and conditioners only. The idea to implement after-care treatments seem unnecessary to many but these are the pivotal products that you need. And in this case, we’re focusing on hair serums!

Hair serums are liquid-based treatment products that can come in a water-based or oil-based form. These products are usually packed with a high concentration of nutritious ingredients. They create a protective layer to smoothen out your hair.

With this, it’s important for you to start implementing a good hair serum in your routine. So here are 24 hair serums you can get in Singapore for luscious and shiny hair.

What Does A Hair Serum Do?

Hair serums are hair styling products that can be used to cover the surface of your hair. It tends to sit on top of your strands of hair with a rubbery substance. Hair serums are typically made with a silicone base as well. Besides that, there are also multiple different types of hair serums that target different concerns.

Whether you are trying to tame frizzy hair, straighten your hair, make it shinier, or protect it from damage, there is definitely a hair serum for your concern out there! It’s also fairly easy to use a hair serum. After washing your hair, apply it to slightly damp hair and comb it through with your fingers. Just make sure you are getting every bit of product onto the ends and beginnings of your hair!  

Benefits of Using A Hair Serum

There are several benefits of using a hair serum as well. No matter your hair concern, there is bound to be a hair serum that suits your needs. Thus, most hair serums have the benefit to help control frizzy hair. The presence of silicone within a hair serum’s formula is what helps it tame those pesky flyaways. To counteract the static charge that causes frizzy hair, most hair serums contain hydrolysed proteins. If a hair serum helps to prevent frizz, it typically keeps your hair looking smooth.

After using a hair serum, your hair is most likely to be fewer tangles as well! Since some of the silicone present within hair serums can also make your hair reflect light, it helps it shine brighter too for healthier-looking hair! Depending on your hair type, you can get hair serums that cater to your hair type as well!
