From fighting dandruff to helping you deal with breakage, here’s a list of serums to give your hair that extra boost.
A healthy scalp and a good diet are the keys to great hair. But the scalp is often ignored, while we focus all our energy on the face and hair.
Traditional thick lubrication isn’t always the solution to all scalp problems, especially if your scalp is congested or prone to flaking or breakouts in this humid climate. Just as a facial serum is formulated to work deeper into your skin to serve its purpose, scalp serums and toners can also help provide deeper nourishment to your scalp.
Here is a quick list of serums for different hair and scalp problems. It goes without saying that before using them, consult a doctor.
L’Occitane En Provence Force & Strength and Volume Scalp Serum
This scalp serum is made with five essential oils, vegetable keratin and arginine. These ingredients help reduce fine hair loss due to breakage and stimulate hair growth.
Deconstructing scalp serums
This brand offers two scalp serums: anti-dandruff (Piroctone Olamine, salicylic acid and prebiotics) and exfoliating (salicylic acid, lactic acid and zinc complex).
