If you're looking to fight frizz, then you may want to consider a serum. An anti-frizz serum not only controls the appearance of frizz but can help strengthen the cuticle to stop frizz from happening in the first place.

What is a serum?


Serums are incredibly versatile products, and all hair types can benefit from using them. A serum can work as a purely aesthetic product, helping hair look and feel healthier and more manageable. A serum can also nourish or protect hair. Hair serums can be applied to either dry or wet hair, depending on their overall purpose.


Serums to control the appearance of frizz


Some anti-frizz serums simply control the appearance of frizz by smoothing hair. Such products create a barrier around the hair cuticle, smoothing the porous surface so the hair lies flatghd Smooth & Finish Serum is the perfect finishing product for a sleeker look.


Serums to help combat the causes of frizz


The main cause of frizz is dehydration, which in turn causes the hair cuticle to open and let in external moisture and humidity. Some hair serums can actually penetrate the hair cuticle to hydrate and nourish strands.

We recommend Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Duo Serum, which helps to rehydrate and strengthen the hair cuticles whilst keeping hair soft to the touch.

Serums to help protect the hair


The barrier created by a serum doesn't just work to smooth the surface; it also helps protect the hair. By sealing the openings of the hair cuticle, no unwanted moisture or humidity will enter, so you get a frizz-free look.

Serums can also protect the hair against heat damage and pollution. O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum works in conjunction with heat tools to reduce damage.


Serums and silicones


Most anti-frizz serums are silicone-based, which means they can be drying in the long run and cause product build-up. If you have frizz-prone hair, it's likely to be dehydrated. You should be careful with silicones, as over time, they can have adverse effects on your hair.

Be sure to incorporate plenty of hydrating products into your haircare routine if you use silicones regularly and have curly or dehydrated hair. Consider the Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy range, which provides intense nourishment through its shampoo, conditioner, and deep treatment

Remember to use a clarifying shampoo such as O&M Original Detox Shampoo every few washes to remove product build-up. This will ensure your hair can still reap the benefits of your hydrating products.

Even though you'll have to take a little extra care with your hair when using them, serums are one of the best products for keeping frizz at bay. You can easily achieve a celebrity-sleek mane in minutes.
