Hair serum is a wonderful alternative to hair conditioner. Unlike the leave-in conditioners, hair serum does not weigh down your hair. The lightweight liquid penetrates the hair shafts and makes them smooth and glossy. It not only helps to tame the dry frizzy hair, it is suitable for all types of hair. Hair serum helps to detangle the tresses, which helps you to style your hair with ease.
Furthermore, hair serum usually contains nutrients that nourish the hair follicles and help in promoting hair growth. Although you will come across a variety of hair serums in the stores, to save cost and avoid chemicals present in the commercial hair care products, you can easily make your own hair serum.
Here Is How You Can Prepare Hair Serum With Natural Ingredients
1. Jojoba Oil And Grapeseed Essential Oil
The consistency of jojoba oil is similar to the natural human serum. Hence, it is one of the best ingredients for hair serum. The grapeseed oil too is lightweight oil that easily penetrates the hair shafts and moisturizes and nourishes them. To make hair serum, add 12 drops of grapeseed essential oil to an ounce of jojoba oil. For additional benefit, add 5 to 6 drops of eucalyptus and peppermint oil. Mix the oil well. Apply a small amount of the serum on damp hair.
2. Aloe Vera Gel, Nettle And Horsetail
Apart from treating the dry and frizzy tresses, if you want to deal with hair fall, make a hair serum by combining aloe vera gel with herbs that promote hair growth such as nettle and horsetail. Pour a cup of water in a pan and bring it to a boil. Add two tablespoons each of dried nettle leaves and horsetail leaves and simmer on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Strain the liquid and let it cool down. Mix the herbal decoction with two tablespoons of aloe vera gel.
3. Coconut Oil And Castor Oil
Hair serum prepared by combining coconut oil with castor oil is best suited for the dry and rough hair. It helps to trap moisture in the hair shafts, thereby making the hair smooth and lustrous. Mix two parts of castor oil with one part of coconut oil. Cover your tresses with a small amount of the mixture.
4. Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil And Vitamin E
To tame the frizzy hair, you can also try this homemade serum prepared by combining aloe vera gel, coconut oil and vitamin E oil. Dilute three tablespoons of aloe vera gel with water until you get the serum-like consistency. Mix 6 to 8 drops of coconut oil and the oil of a vitamin E capsule. Mix all the ingredients well.
5. Argan Oil Hair Serum
Loaded with antioxidants and nutrients essential for hair growth, argan oil helps in moisturizing the hair and stimulates hair growth. Prepare your homemade hair serum by adding 5 drops of geranium essential oil and 10 drops of ylang ylang essential oil to two ounces of argan oil.
